    III - Team 3 Check in - III

    Let's get this thread rolling and all check-in to be sure each is committed. Also, let's introduce ourselves so that we all become familiar with one another!

    My name is Troy (I was creative with my username) and I live an hour west of Chicago. I have been bowhunting for 10 years now and with each year I have become more and more committed (and obsessed) with the sport. If you guys follow BHOD I just joined the Pro-staff this past year which I am extremely blessed to have been given that opportunity. My family owns a good chunk of property in NW IL of which there is a good supply of birds. This is only our second year with the property but last year we put down 2 good Toms. You will see me hunting with the opposition and fellow prostaffer Tim who is on another team but since I video'd last year I should be first up to bat. I have tags for the first and second season so I hope to come through for you guys and look forward to the comradery....let's get it done!

    Oh....and let's get some team name ideas tossed around.

    Team 3:
    ib_reel,
    ATbuckhunter,
    STriek,
    TroyS
    MI_Brad,

    Sorry i didnt see this at all for some reason. Congrats on getting in the BHOD pro staff. I hunt in NY so I am guaranteed 2 tags for any weapon is considered legal. I hunt on a friends land since I don't own my own piece of property but am looking for my own. I currently have never shot a turkey in the spring because I have used a bow the whole time, but I have called a couple in before. I probably will use a shotgun for the first one to get my first spring gobbler then ill get back to the addiction of bowhunting turkeys. I did shoot my first turkey which was a hen back in October. Too bad NY's turkey season starts all the way on May 1st.

    Just so you know this competition is bow only I believe. I'm very competitive but in this case am just looking for the camaraderie so go get your first spring gobbler with your shotgun and then if you get the chance stick an arrow in one. It's challenging but a great time! Welcome to the team.

    checkin in, though the name is spelled wrong not a big deal. Name is Steve, retired Army medic, been hunting off and on since i was 10 (so 34 years today) Looking forward to this season since last year was a bust, though the woods here have been rather quiet compared to last year. not sure if that is agood or bad yet guess i will wait and see

    Checking in, my name is Brad I'm 13 and my world basically revolves around hunting and the outdoors.This is gonna be my first year using my bow to hunt turkeys and am very hopeful. The area where I hunt has gotten me 2 good gobblers the 2 years I have been hunting them.
