    I hadn't seen one posted yet so I figured I'd get it going. Let's get everyone checked in and get some intros going.

    Looks like we have 14 guys on the team. 1 shy of being able to drop a 3rd zero but hopefully we don't have any zeros to drop.

    Checking in... 2 Months away boys. Days are already starting to go slow when I think about it. Need to keep my mind on other things.

    Checking in. Ready to roll this season without the benefit of access to my best private property. No worries as I have access to some small properties and will be pounding some decent public land a few times this season. 2 months...can't wait!

    I will be checking my cameras for the first time all summer at the farm back home. I had some good bucks running around last year so I'm hoping they stuck around.

    I have seen some really good bucks on the public land down here at school. I also found some new areas to hunt that look promising and not as pressured as some other places.

    I won't be able to check my cameras for a few more weeks. Last year we had 5 hitlist bucks anywhere from 130- 150. I'm hoping to have pictures of all 5 so I can see how much growing they've done. The anticipation is killing me

    I'll be checking my cams this weekend and maybe once more before letting them sit until Oct. Still gotta pick up some bigger cards since only run 2 gb normally but gonna need something bigger for a month or little more soak. Had couple decent bucks show so far but not whole lot. Lot of young ones running around, but have couple pics of two from last year I was after so hopefully they stick around.

    These are the two hanging around from last year.

    Checking in. Food plots are looking good with one more small spot left to get planted. No pics of big ones yet but lots of young bucks and does hanging around. Can't wait to get started.
