    I'm jealous Josh! I think that's every man's dream to be in the woods every day for a month! Odds are definitely going to be in your favor.

    There is nothing to exciting about me. I can usually put 50 points on the board. I didn't draw a deer tag here in Utah but I have my yearly thanksgiving hunt in Kansas on my wife's family farm. Does seem that Tynimiller and myself have been on a team or two. I archery hunt elk mostly but the fires this year are making it tough this year. My son-in law drew out a archery Deer Pansuagunt tag. So I will have fun with him chasing big mule deer and hopefully an elk will step out for me.

    I was looking at Team 3’s points from last year. They harvested some nice bucks! Was thinking let’s post some photos of posibble bucks we have on trail cameras. Or maybe a photo of your favorite hunt or something. Be cool to hear where everyone is hunting and how they have had luck in the past. I’m never to busy to learn some new tactics or something new about deer behavior. -Simplman-

    Dusty you’ve got some good looking bucks showing up on camera, you’ve also killed some nice deer in the past! Thanks for the post, when’s your season open? I guess since it was my idea I’ll post a few photos. I’ve got one buck on camera that I’m really hoping to see on the hoof. A few other bucks that look to be 2 & 3 year olds.

    Just a heads up...I'm kinda scoring nazi. No worries, when we all need to score a buck this year just take your time and always put first scorecard away and do a second one from scratch....helps a ton to confirm or deny any glaring issues.

    I will share some pics from last years hunt but will admit last year I passed the biggest buck I've let walk to date on cam....will share video link sometime.

    All in all most winning teams over the years (been on one winning team) has 2 things in common; the entire team stays active AND they harvest 50 point deer (does or 2nd bucks). The year my team won memory doesn't think we had more than one buck break 140 but I believe all but one or two got a doe and then a bunch of 70 to 120 inch bucks...

    Ty, I always thought it would be fun idea to throw Vito, GMMAT and Atlasman into a ring together and see who's left standing. :biggrin:
    Todd could've sold live-viewing rights and made a fortune!

    My cams haven't produced anything noteworthy yet, but I got them up late this year and have only had a single check so far... fingers crossed!

    What’s up everyone, just checking in. My name is Chris and I’ll be hunting in central WI. Had my best year bow hunting last year, taking a buck that scored low 120s so I’m hoping to repeat that effort and maybe get a doe on top of that. Will be heading up to do some work on the property this weekend and will finally be able to check cams, I’ll post anything that’s interesting. Can’t wait for the season to start and get back in the woods!

    This is my 4th season into bow hunting. So far in the last 3 seasons I've bagged 4 deer with my bow and several hogs. I'll be good with my doe for sure. I've been able to hunt Texas (my lease)and Oklahoma (family property)the last few years. The buck is where I struggle in Texas. I've yet to even pull back on one here in Texas. I've been so damn close (within 10 yards) but it's never panned out here in Texas. I've had several great deer within range but I've only been to capitalize in Oklahoma tagging my first mature buck last year and smaller buck the year before. My deer last year was a nice 8 point that had a 21" inside spread. Picture in attachment. I will not be hunting Oklahoma this year due to vacation time :confused:

    We have several good deer that me and a buddy are putting in all of our efforts for. Several years now on camera with this one particular deer we have called 'Monarch'. He won't give me a good angle this year but we suspect he will go 140s. Has a split brow tine and kicker coming off his g2. I've attached last year's pic, early growth, and my most recent pic but bad quality.

    I'll attach some other deer that we have in the area tomorrow when I get to my computer.

    Here are a couple other pics. The one I would love to see live until next year is x-man. He has a 3rd main beam and has put on good growth from last year. We suspect he is a 3.5 year old based off last year's pictures with him. I'll share more throughout the season! But I have a few good ones here in east texas.... nothing compared to you guys and northern deer but it's good for this area!

    KB1785 checking in. Looks like a great team and am also looking forward to getting back in the woods. I live in Eastern KY but work and hunt in the bow only counties in WV. Have been fortunate to take some great bucks(for me at least) through the years. Been really busy this year with work and a development project that my brother and I have been working on but hopefully I can get the time to spend in a tree this fall. Don't have any pictures as I haven't put any trailcams out yet. Last year I didn't put any trailcams out at all as I wanted to see if not checking them and leaving the area as undisturbed as possible helped and also getting back to the "old days" of hunting without knowing what may be coming in. I usually leave my stands up and hunt the same spots that have produced over the years unless I can get a bead on a big buck and try to figure him out. I do have one stand that I want to put up in a different area this year. Good luck to all this year.
