What are some of your goals this season?

Mine are..
1.) Kill a P&Y as my first bow buck
2.) Kill one of my top five trail camera bucks
3.) Kill a buck over 4.5
4.) Help my dad kill a 120+ He's only got one bigger than that and it was in 2001
5.) Kill two mature bucks in one year

My goals?

Primarily, have a safe and fun hunting season with my family. Secondarily, help my daughter kill her first deer, and maybe kill a decent buck myself.

1. If she is ready, help my daughter take her first deer.
2. Get in the woods and just have fun
3. Kill 3-4 deer max for the freezer, with hopefully one or two of these being decent bucks
4. Play "hitman" and take a couple of extra deer for my non-hunting friends
5. Hunt more from the boat (as a vehicle to get to my landlocked hunting grounds), as this tends to be a successful and fulfilling experience
6. Use multiple weapons to kill deer, although I want to use my bow less
7. Hunt in the snow at least once
8. Hunt from the ground more and be less reliant on my treestands
9. Don't get too torn up over antlers

First year hunting in TN. I'd like to just GO period, and hopefully put something in the freezer. Learn as much as I possibly can so that i'm much more prepared for next season.

First and foremost is have fun and be safe. After that, try to put my six yr old on his first deer. He is pumped and ready. After that, at least one good buck here and one in KY along with a few does.

2. Spend time in the woods, and enjoy being able bodied to do so. We never know how many seasons we have left.

With a little one expecting to be born in October, my goals are to put a few does in the freezer and hopefully get a few hunts in around the rut for a shot at a mature buck.

I also would like to get a deer off my new property in Williamson County. Its only 11.6 acres and will be bow only so it should be interesting.

My goals are to implement better scent control measures, exercise more patience when taking a shot, hunt stands only when the wind is right and have fun. I want to make the process as my goals vs the outcome. If I do a better job with scent control this year, hunt stands only when the wind is right and be more patient when taking a shot I will be happy.

4. At least lay eyes on a buck or 2 that have been teasing me with their big buck sign the last couple of seasons.
5. Get a couple of WOWWERS on camera.
6. Hunt a few new areas.
7. Discover or see something new from the deer.

1 kill a few deer
2 kill one with bow from ground
3 get at least one good video of the impact, preferably with a bow
4 kill one with a bow on public land (shouldn't be too hard)

Guess I'd like to kill at least 1 buck too. I guess another goal is to kill bonus buck(s) on bonus hunts and possibly more than 3 bucks in a year just for the heck of it. But not in a rush to do it, just thought it would be cool to do once.

That's why "kill one of my trail cam bucks" is a pretty high goal for me.

I went down that road three years ago with a little one due in October along with building a new house that year. I sure am glad that year is behind me. I just wasn't there mentally. I hunted a lot, but while I was there, I felt guilty the whole time thinking about what I needed to get done. I didn't get bit by the bug until around the first of January when season was almost over. Sorry for giving you something to look forward to. \:\)

I'd have to add 1 more thing to my list. Our club rules are you can't kill your second buck until you've killed a doe (no matter when or how during the season you do it). Last year for whatever reason I didn't get that done before the rut. I killed my first buck then and went after a doe the next morning. I had a beautiful 140+ buck run does by my stand but couldn't get on any of them. I could have killed that buck though and all I could do was watch. I bet that doesn't happen again. So...

8. Kill a doe right off the bat.

I disagree that the Ames' system qualifies as a true earn-a-buck program. A member can kill any legal buck initially, whether you have killed a doe or not. Furthermore, a member has 35+ days of deer season before 99% of the bucks are killed (middle of November) to harvest his/her one doe that is required in order to kill two bucks. My .02

I could not agree more Mike as this is my goal each and every year. This has and always will be the best approach when hunting under our guidelines.

As always......

1. Have fun and be safe for all our hunters
2. Kill a 3 1/2 yo or older buck
3. Kill a doe with a bow on opening weekend of bow which is always my goal (5 of last 6 years)
4. Not a goal, but I want to kill my first buck with a bow. Killed probably 20 does and passed I can't remember how many 8 and 10 points with a bow, but nothing worth getting on the wall for the "first"

My primary goal is to get a good buck off of public access land in Kansas. I have an archery tag so it has to be with a bow. This will be my third year trying and I feel like I'm starting to figure it out up there. My secondary goal is to get a buck and a doe off of my new lease in Sequatchie county. Overall I would just like to get more days in the woods to enjoy the sunrises and the sunsets and the beautiful fall weather and scenery.

1. Enjoy this hunting season with my son before he heads to college next year...kill some squirrel, deer and ducks and maybe even give up some bow hunting time to take him fishing a few days in October because he'd rather fish than hunt anyway.
2. Smoke the first doe I can so I don't have to worry about the second buck rule at Ames Plantation!
3. Draw a really big crowd at the Ames check station one fine morning in late November or early December....
4. Enjoy sharing the experience with my friends when they draw a really big crowd at the Ames check station.
5. Enjoy all the time I get to spend with family and friends doing what we love to do.

Same goal as every year, kill a booner! Probably wont make may goal again this year. But really, my goal is just to get in the woods as much as possible with my dad and brother and get a shot at a mature buck.

I would like to kill a decent buck off a 47 acre piece of property that I have hunted for 6 or 7 years. I know that there are some really nice bucks in the area that will travel through on occasions but I have never seen one during shooting light.

normally i say just have fun and fill the freezer, but being the wife and I each hit a deer, within a 4 month period and cost us $1,000 in insurance deductibles, I have decided to shoot for 10 deer this season. 1 for each $100 spent \:D

I just want to fill my freezer, enjoy being in Gods creation, and be safe. Of course, killing the next King Buck wouldn't be bad either!

Just kill a deer (or 2) and have fun hunting. Anything else is gravy.

Get my mom or dad on a big deer.

And of course it wouldn't hurt to tag a monster to put on the wall just to hear my girlfriend complain! \:D
