Meeting #2 - 24seven
#1 - Pennington Seed
After a 900 plus drive mile drive I met Wade Nolan and Bruce Ryan as well as the outfitters Doug Doty and Greg Griffith with our hunting hosts Dreamwoods Adventures. It was late in the afternoon when I arrived and we drove to the Roseclaire's only local restaurant named Nanny's and and ate hamburgers, actually I had a patty melt, a real good one. I ordered raisin pie but they were out so I settled for coconut and then chocolate. They were good too.
The next day Wade, myself and Bruce's wife Nancy drove to Carmii, Illinois and bought 6 baskets of groceries from their Wal-Mart. When we returned to the lodge I started setting up my satellite internet.
The weather decided to interfere and let the rain storms loose. I struggled with aiming the dish for a very long time but it didn't happen. Meanwhile the Manufacturers and Writers began arriving and by bed time the following manufacturer representatives were here:

DAY 1 - Morning Hunt
4:00am felt awful early as everyone got up and prepared for the first morning's bowhunt. I wanted to get my satellite set up before I hunted so I slept in. The hunters were back between 10:00 and 10:30.
After Brian Richards let off his hunters a huge buck crossed the road ahead of the truck in the pre dawn. Rob Reaser made his own ground blind and hunted from the ground. Rob had a young buck walk 5 feet from his blind. Ken Piper hunted a food plot and saw a bunch of does feeding in the food plot. Ron Boyce heard some coyotes and called them. A coyote come in his area and it sat down and started howling. Scott saw does on the ridge he hunted. Mike Hanley got a shot at a doe but missed. Other deer were seen and two more bomber bucks were seen but no one else took a shot this morning.
Scott Alread of Bear Archery arrived this afternon and that completed the members of the Writers Camp and deer hunt.
We ate a big lunch and got ready for the first day's meeting.
