    Hey guys, MNpurple checking in. I'm Craig and am 33 years old. I live in SW Minnesota but do all of my hunting (outside of pheasants) in SE Minnesota. Phone # is 507-995-1641. GLad to be part of the team and I vote for the second logo!

    Tom, where are your leases in SE Minnesota? I have 5 family farms I hunt North and East of Houston. I bet we're fairly close to each other.

    I have to say this has been a down year for trail camera shots of mature bucks for me, but just this week I found out my neighbor FINALLY got a pic of the big guy we were hunting last season. Here is last years photo and he said he kept the same frame but added mass. Unfortunately, none of us have ever seen him in person, and we have zero trail camera shots of him in daylight.

    I'm off to Colorado for Elk in 8 days!

    Kyle I like the second one too. That turned out sweet. The only place I have the horns and skull plate are on my truck, trailer, and back of the shirts. Where did you find a drawing?

    Craig we are not to far apart, my lease is outside of Lanesboro.

    Welcome, Craig and Rory! Craig- I sure hope you get a chance at that monster, that would be a healthy addition to our score!

    Kyle- I like the second avatar as well

    I actually searched the web for a nice set of antlers, and then added a cartoonist twist on them. Glad u all like it.

    My cell # is 815-219-0205 and e-mail is rizzo999@hotmail.com.

    Got this guy last year on public land mid-day literally right after I watched all of the other hunters walk past me to the parking area to their vehicles for lunch. Yes, I stripped down to my AC/DC shirt and boxers to retieve him from the center of that creek, which was stomach high thus filling my boots with water! He has 14 scorable points with a gross of 152". Hope and pray that I can get an even larger one this year (plus a doe for 50 additional points).

    It was Nov 10th so no it was not warm but I could have cared less at that moment. I actually had pics of that deer coming towards me in the creek, but can not find them anymore. I am probably jinxing myself this season by posting those pics!!

    It sure is. The town was the 1952 IL state champion for basketball when there was only one division versus like 4-6 classes today! It was basically the IL version of Hoosiers. I have only been a resident for 5 years, but oh my gosh do they hold onto this championship....even worse than the '85 Bears legacy.


    Not sure if this pic will work or not...

    Depends when the daylight pics were of that buck. If they were earlier than 7/14 (your trailcam pics) I would agree with Evilstuff. If they were taken at a later date I would guess that to be a different buck as the tines in the trail cam appear to be longer. Just my .02...
