Michigan Deer Season 2010

Me, my dad, uncle, and cousin hit the mid-Michigan woods every November 15th. This was the first year I had my Jeep, and also the first chance I had to get her a little muddy. I even tried to get her stuck in the mud, but man those new Goodyear DTs sure are badass. All four of us downed bucks and had a few beers around the campfire. Great times!
It really is God's Country up there....

Here's a few pics:

Take the back seat out. That's what I always do then I just put my stand on top of the deer. I don't have carpet in my jeep so clean up is as easy as turning the hose on.

I just threw mine in the back of dad's dakota with his deer, but I was going to use my hitch-mounted thule bike rack if we ran out of room (my buck was a little guy, I wasn't worried about the weight.)

I also have a kargomaster congo roof rack that I bought cheap on CL prior to the trip, but didn't get to finish the powder coating before we left. Just ran out of time. But it'll be ready for next year,;hopefully I get a bigger deer next year but can't complain. We got 4 bucks in 3 days this year, 3 bucks in 4 days last year, including a new county record typical. All from the same state land area. And no, I won't tell you where we were

You're from Illinois but come up to Michigan to hunt? Thanks for contributing what ever money you spent to our broke a** state!!

Great looking pics and had to have been a ton of fun.

Not much of a deer hunter myself, but the kid will be out tomorrow morning on brother in laws property. He hasn't had a chance to get out yet due to school and work. There's been a huge 10 point going through the field every morning all summer. Hopefully, he's still around.

haha, yeah well I'm not FROM Illinois, just live here now...and IL is more broke than MI. Seriously. State deficit is 2nd only to CA, and our unemployment rate is #1, Komrad!

But anything I can do to contribute in MI is no prob. It's not cheap to buy that non-resident tag, that's for sure. But it's a small price to pay for the memories and family time.

Bob,

I think you asked me that before in another thread (or someone did) but I don't know if I ever answered. It was 180 for the rack, then a guy my old man knows is blasting/powdercoating the rack, my pushbar, and my brush guard, all for 150. I am going to pick it all up over Thanksgiving. So far all I have back is my front push bar, which looks awesome. I think I got the rack so cheap b/c it was originally for an LJ with the longer bars, but my dad's good w/ metal work so he took care of the chop down. When it's all said and done I will post pics. The guy's powdercoat work is really good, my push bar looks brand new.
