First day on stand in Southeast Ohio hunting Buckeye big bucks. I’m dedicating my time and thoughts to Kelly Harris who hunted every year about fifty miles from where I hunt. Don’t even think that my thread will anything like his post but I may get lucky and arrow a buck inn his honor.

I put Kelly’s initials and the infamous 114 on my arrow that I plan to use on the chosen candidate. I will keep you posted on the outcome.

Good luck! And keep us posted. Hunting SE Ohio myself- all I have seen is small bucks and does. But had a doe come by this morning alone. Thought she may be starting. Greg

I look forward to following your thread. I will be heading down to southeast Ohio myself in a couple of weeks. I always look forward to this trip. This year will be a little short due to me trying to become a forty year old college student. Good Luck

Spending our annual week in the Wayne. Very slow here so far, the rain hasn't helped other than make everything a mess. Spent 2 mornings and one evening on a white oak flat, loaded with acorns and littered with deer sh'+. Nothing traveling the bench on the south side. No cam pics over the scrapes either. Spent this evening in a large Creek bottom that was loaded with scrapes last year. Only 3 down there this year. Our group of 7 has seen a few small bucks cruising, a few nice ones driving back in the dark. Planning on pushing it to next week for next year.

DRR324, if I only had one week I would opt for somewhere around 7-15. I am here until the 14th. If I was absolutely devoted and had the time and was looking for mr big then I would be somewhere around the 20th.

Day 3 The morning was warm and windy. Sat until rain and wind ran me out . Nothing was moving except one squirrel. Rain is the forecast for tomorrow. Weather has made this a hunt when you can proposition.

Rocky, we had one good buck in range last night coming in to work a few scrapes. Picked my nephew off while he tried to draw. One other sighting this morning of a decent one. Then the rains came, think we are packing up and headed back north first thing in the morning. Rain has put a damper on our week. Already moved to next week for next year.
