    I'm in Maryland and would like to join.. but I'm new to the site. I don't think I have 25 posts yet.. but that could be fixed easily enough.

    They cut off the sign up already for the battle of the states, so you would have to wait til next year. There is the main contest for BOD.com that you can still sign up for and you will need 25 post to enter. Also you are welcome to comment in the tread thru out the season and help cheer on Maryland. Welcome to the site, its a great place to hang out.

    I'm over on the shore and have been shooting my bow non-stop. I'll post potential bucks when I get back from vacation.

    Thanks Tom, same to you! All this pressure! I will do my best guys, I got until 9/20 and also should be able to hunt a couple days in late december/January.

    I got a couple decent bucks on cam so far, but no jaw droppers.

    I checked the cameras this weekend and had no mature bucks. I did get a new 9 pt and he has a great rack but I think he is a young deer. I am thinking at the most a 3 year old, what do you guys think? EK000613.jpg

    Not sure, he's got the start of the old buck pot belly. I would let one fly if walked by me.

    Nice, lot of big deer down that way. I've been keeping an eye on one buck this last week and his pattern has been like clockwork. He just needs to keep it up for three more weeks.
