yeah curtis, the first. usually when i kill a good one i lose interest for the rest of the season so it looks like my season this year lasted less than an hour.

I love to watch nature in the woods, and I go just to be out there, but I know what you mean about getting a good deer and how your interest can change. You said your lease is in North Pike Co., What area is it near? I used to hunt in Glenwood, south of Troy, and Goshen years ago. There is alot of pretty woods in that part of Alabama.

I got another Question. I have gotten out of the 4 wheeler business, and have thought about getting a Rhino. Do you like yours?

Man that is a nice buck. Way to go, I know what you mean about starting and ending your season. I am just showing the young ones how to hunt and I think I am enjoying that more than hunting. Congrats.

i like the rhino ok, this is the first year i've used it and i also got tired of a 4 wheeler although i still have it. if you are on the rhino on dusty roads you get a lot of dust up in the cab area because it is not sealed between the seats and the body. i think i can fix that and i will let you know how it works. i guess my mission for the rest of the season is to help my 7 yr old grandson get his first deer.
