    Since I didn't see a team thread started yet, I figured I'd get one started. Check in so we know if we need an alternate or not. Let's here where you're from and how your season looks so far!

    I'm from WNY and as always in the summer, I'm very optimist. We will see how that changes once the velvet sheds. I'll be heading to SD for ten days at the end of September, then its back to New York till through December.

    Here's a pair that hang together every year in the summer. This makes it their 4th together. Would love to put my tag on either.

    Illinibowhunter checking in! Looking forward to another fantastic year of deer hunting.

    As you can guess I'm from Illinois. I am very fortunate to have access to hunt four different properties in four different counties in Illinois.

    I need to get some cameras out to start seeing what is moving around. I am going to try and focus on filming my hunts this year. So we will see how that goes.

    I'm crossing my fingers... About to head out to the woods to check cameras... I'm currently watching what I believe is a three year old buck... I have had two velvet spikes on camera but not the bigger guy... I seen him last month while walking out there... First had him walk 20 yards behind my stand last year... I took a larger 8 during rifle that I was after during bow and only got a doe during bow last year... I've never measured a buck before... Only the weight of the meat... Every year I seem to raise my bar... Only thing that doesn't change is filling the freezer...

    Scoring is easy and a lot of guys on here can help you figure it out! I also am mainly a meat hunter because it saves me a ton of money when I'm at school. Venison for dinner almost every night! I was able to kill a nice 10 point last year with my bow and a nice 8 with my gun. Hoping for a similar season!

    Yea, mainly a meat hunter here as well. Last year I was skunked during Bow season, and only took a doe late in our shotgun season. I could have taken small 6 or smaller bucks, but I've been trying to pass and hope they make it through the season. Our woods in small, and surrounded by AG fields, so we are more or less a pass through. But every year we see a lot of deer.

    Couple other random questions. Can each person give a little info about themselves so we can to know one another..

    My name is Justin and I'm 32. I'm married to my beautiful wife of four years and have a 2.5 yr old son named Trapper. My wife is expecting and is due in February.

    I am a Marketing and Member Services Manager for a large electric cooperative as well as an EMT and typically am on calls nights and weekends.

    I've been hunting since I was a small child. Shot my first deer when I was 11 with my dad's Remington 870. Started bowhunting when I was 17. Took me three years to get my first deer with my bow. Been hooked ever since.

    Looking forward to getting to know all of you and be part of your hunting season this year.

    I like that idea. Like I said earlier, my name is Collin and I'm 22. I'm headed into my senior year of college. I'll be graduating in the spring with a Sustainable Construction Management and Engineering degree.

    I have hunted and fished as long as I've been able to tag along with my dad. I spend most of my week days at school which is 2 hours away from home, but almost always make my commute back home for the weekends (for hunting and my girlfriend). I like to brag about her because she has turned into a great hunter the past four years we've been together. Here's a buck she killed last season.

    I'm hoping to get advice from you guys as we get closer to and into the season! I'll attach some pictures of some of my recent successful hunts.

    My name is Kyle. I'm 29, married to my wife of 9 years and we have 2 little girls. Riley who turned 6 today, and kenzie who is 4. I'm a quality supervisor for my parents family business.

    I've been hunting for only 11 years now. When I was younger, i played soccer 24/7 so that left no time for anything extra. Since the wife and I got engaged, I've been hunting her grandparents farm with her dad.

    We are hoping to head to the farm this weekend to check mineral sites and cameras.

    My name is Ryan, I'm 28 years old and from South Louisiana.

    I am a petroleum engineer with a degree from LSU.

    I have been going hunting with my father since I was 3 years old. I would climb into the box stand while he was right behind me make sure I made it in, then I usually proceeded to sleep on the flood but there was no way he was leaving the house without me. I killed my first deer at 7 years old with a .243 (Remington Model 7). My first bow kill was 5 years ago, I grew up deer hunting with a rifle and duck hunting a lot. Since then I have transitioned to mainly bowhunting.

    This will be my 3rd year self filming my hunts. A buddy of mine, Jonathon, and I started doing it on a whim and we are enjoying the process. You can check out some of our stuff at bontempsoutdoors.com

    I am also associated with Louisiana Bowhunter trying to help spread archery in Louisiana.
