5. A photo of the hunter and saddle (either laying on the ground or on the hunter) with the full body of the deer is required to be posted in the official deer contest thread for submission. If you have 1000 posts or more you do not need to include the saddle in your photo, I will take your word on the honor system.According to the rules, I believe you can still enter her in the contest... you're so well known you don't need to have the saddle in the pic, we all know you used it is you say you did!
disregard this statement, just saw the post that you were on the ground.5.

Here is the rule @DaveT1963. You are good to submit her. I guess all you need is a pic of her.
I'm looking forward to seeing some movement Friday as well!We have a front coming through Thursday night and there is a 20 degree temperature drop on Friday. Needless to say, I am a little excited. I think a deer is going to hit the ground in Bama. Now I just have to pick my spot.
Honesty is the way to go here! We will make our way into contention as the rut heats up!Actually, it was in my pack but my daughter was afraid of heights so i sat on the ground and killed her at 19 yards. There will be more God willing
I wasn't the only one who thought tomorrow was going to be a good day. My morning spot was more of a short scout mission and I bugged out at 8:30. I had to drive about an hour to my mid-morning-evening spot. When I arrived at 10:30 to my mid-morning thru afternoon spot I was going to kayak in to, some guy had just put in to go that direction. Missed it by 15-20 min. I am regretting stopping to get that Bojangles biscuit. I was sitting in my truck trying to figure out my next spot to go to and I look up and two deer were crossing the road (one was a 6-8 point buck other a spike). After they entered the woods I grabbed my bow and tried to cut them off but never saw them. I bugged out and went to spot B which I was pretty excited about too. Arrived about 11:30 and a truck was there too. So I ended up going to a new place to scout/hunt my way in. I followed some OK sign (one set of very fresh buck tracks) as far as I thought I could without going too far and got set up. About 5:20 three deer, two of which were bucks came out of the swamp about 75 yds ahead of me. They never turned my way. It was close, pretty good for going in blind. I always struggle with how far is too far following sign. I didn't connect but I was close. Good learning experience. Another cold front is coming through next Friday and I'll try again.I have a good feeling about tomorrow. Got two sweet public land spots to hit for morning and the mid-day to evening. It’s going to be cold and a North wind. I don’t want to jinx it, but something is going to die. I feel it in my bones.
No Rutcation in Bama for at least another month and a half though.
Halloween was 2 days ago - I’m sure all the dead people are back in their graves by now!!I did some scouting this morning, found some great sign...a bunch of fresh rubs and scrapes, I'm going to set up on those tonight. I have to sit right next to the graveyard that's on my property Hoping nothing besides a deer shows up tonight!
