I've been hunting public land north of Milwaukee with no luck. Found out the dog runners have cleaned out the area. The last 3 places I found tracks I saw trucks with cb's and dog cages and my scouting has come up with no tracks in these areas.
So I went 'up north' and hunted with my buddy and into the seventh stand got a female about 30 lbs. She was showing the late season with some rubbing.
Got her about 100-110 yds, one shot with my MOA in 6.5x284. DRT with a 100g Nosler through the chest with no fur damage- didn't hit any bones though.
Here she is, well at least her hide.
Here is the equipment
We howled and then did challenge howls to each other and she got caught sneaking out from behind some pine trees on a small ridge. I think she was looking at the decoy when I first spotted her.
She is in the upper right, just right of the big pine tree near the top of the ridge.
