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

If I had saved all the money I spent on hunting, I'd spend it on hunting.

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.

To keep passing on to my son the things I have learned thru the years and to show that simply enjoying the time spent enjoying what the good lord has given us is more important than the kill.

1st goal and most important for me is to help my 8 year old girl (she will be 9 by the Juvy hunt) to get her 3rd deer and my 2nd goal is for me to kill a mature buck and keep my streak going.

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"
Be nervous, but fear no one

In God we trust

God bless the USA!

To spend more time in the deer woods with my kids and family.

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.

To be able to hunt period ! I'll set my goals when I enter the woods which are basicly the same each year .Hope to kill at least one fairly mature buck and be pleased with what ever the Lord sees fit for me to have !Goal is to kill four deer to help some people out with venison .
