First off I'd like to let you guys know hunting and shed hunting doesn't consume my life...entirely. My 200 Free Relay is currently ranked 4th in the State for this weekend at Marshalltown. This weekend I swam High School Districts and got personal bests in all of my events besides my 50 Freestyle (Missed going to state in the 100 Freestyle just but a touch). Not only that but today I swam at Waukee YMCA for Sectionals and got personal bests in all my events. This will be my 8th year going to YMCA state and 2nd year going to High School State. I've also been a State Cross Country runner 2 years in a row and will hopefully make it in Track this year in the 1,600. Not to mention FFA, 4-H, Summer Swim, Club Swim, ect. I keep pretty busy. Mostly due to swimming I've had to drop things I like doing IE Shed hunting and taking pictures. But I've managed to take one ATL this year It's at least a start. One of my main reasons for making this Journal is because I probably should quit flooding the main forum with threads and compile them into one big one. So here's my outlook on the 2014 Season... With the loss of one of the good farms I've been hunting this season will be different than most. I'm still going to try to shoot mature whitetails like 2013. But, I'm not going to take any does. Here's some up and comers I hope to see throughout the season... This guy I know is still alive and I passed him up during bow season at 20 yards on the other side of the CRP. Now here's one I haven't got trail camera pictures of but I sure hope he's still kickin'! Honestly Turkey season looks promising... This will hopefully be a food plot this year! This guy was still holding as of 2.6.14! I'm glad he made it through the season. My other goal is to either trap or shoot a bobcat next season, I've got enough pictures of them! Here's a few on the 700 acre property I'm managing and I'm itching to get out and look for sheds on this place! Maybe you can tell why?! I'll be posting more photos soon, I'll be sure to get that one ATL and pictures of the other sheds I've found asap!
