I'm heading home to Morris this weekend for 4A deer hunting hoping to break my 3-year buckless rut. Who else is going to be in the field this weekend?

I'll be out second weekend in the Glenwood area. Forecast looks like we have a very good chance at snow on the ground by then. Opening weekend - not so much.

Just north of Miltona...same here.

We did quite well, but others did not (it appeared). The deer were running last night (so I heard).

Saw 3 bucks on our land Saturday and got two. None were real big though.

By Norcross, Not too great two does out of 8 people. I think the #'s were down also. So it is great that the DNR has the new limits set.

Millerville-Leaf Valley

Worked hard to go 2 for 3. Dad got a 6er on Saturday would have let it pass but he hadn't had an opportunity yet and I got a doe Saturday afternoon my first opportunity also. No shots fired first weekend. Not very much sign around, of course there are 3 new trailers and 5 new houses within a mile of my stand in the last 5 years.

We hunt between Miltona and Leaf Valley.

Got 7 for 9 weekend 1. Got 4 more the next weekend (not everyone hunted, but added 3 more hunters that couldn't hunt the first weekend). We then quit, as we have enought venison.

Saw 5 deer on Hwy 14 Sunday night at 8:00 between Leaf Valley and Hwy 29. Two were nice bucks....

They land I own (bought from my father and separate from our "main" hunting area) has not done well for deer the last 3 years. This year we got 5 deer in this area...3 of them were bucks from 6 - 8 points.

This last weekend, all of our deer were shot on drives as they weren't running at all.

Just got back. Had to switch to the second season at the last minute. Our group went 2 of 6 on bucks. Nothing for me though.

      I may get a big ration of doodoo for this post, but here goes.  As a business owner (not food related) I guess I'm a bit confused by all of these negative posts.  The new owners (remember, they invested their money in the place) have evidently decided on a business model that they feel will work for them to be profitable.  I don't know them, don't know what their background or experience is, and it really doesn't matter.  It's their business, so they get to do with it whatever they choose.  If their model doesn't work, it stands to reason that they'll change their model, but that is entirely up to them.  There's likely a reason that the ownership of The Landing has changed several times in the last decade.  Trying to drive these owners out of business won't bring back 1980's priced cheap food and drink.   There are lots of places in many towns and cities that I choose not to eat at or visit because I don't want to pay the prices they charge.  But I don't go on the Internet and demean the owners and their places of business because I choose not to buy from them.  I'm a few times a year visitor to The Landing, and it is generally for lunch off the lake.  If I thought it was too expensive I simply wouldn't go back.  Vote with your dollars, not your posts on this forum.  Get a Trip Advisor or Yelp account and post a review if it's that important for you to vent.   The alternative for all of you of course, is that if anyone else has a model where they can charge half as much and still make a profit (not likely), well maybe that person ought to buy The Landing and give us all cheap food and drink.  We'll line up at the dock for you.  It's the old "put your money where your mouth is" adage.  The fact is, most of the old favorite local establishments you talk about have been in the same family for years or generations, and the owners make a living because of low overhead.  Someone investing in a new venture has lots to pay for, and as you all know, owning anything on a lake, and especially on Vermilion in Greenwood Township, is not a low-cost endeavor.   Let's support those who choose to invest in these expensive pieces of real estate on our lake (or at least not disparage them in these posts), and help them to keep them open.  Time to forget about getting $1 tap beers and $2.50 hamburgers, when the owners have to pay 2017 overhead costs.  Guys, the 80's want their lunch tab back.

      I must have missed it, but where are the fish pictures?

      And when they do, they'll hire a guide.
