    Let's get this started!!!

    Check in (as you do I'll make note here)....brief introductions are always nice as well.

    PLEASE above all else, even if you have the worst season of your life, stay active. I've been on many teams and my least favorite have never had to do with scores but teams with no-shows or folks that check in but NEVER communicate.

    Love seeing some familiar faces and some fellas I'd call friends already on the team!

    Bullridnfool - Checked In
    Tbass3574 - Checked In
    dmax4me - Checked In

    @Bullridnfool @tbass3574 @dmax4me @MnHunterr @virginiashadow @sknox8 @triebs58 @Ryan Cornelius @Racks&Ridges @Bone Head Hunter


    I'll also add some things.....that way for anyone that is new can avoid making our team look like folks that cannot read the contest rules. Make sure to read through the rules ASAP.

    Briefly put remember, there is no excuse to not take two photos with the harvest (archery equipment MUST be in the pictures) in order to verify and be eligible to count for the contest.

    Also, please if you've never scored a buck DON'T be shy and ask for help. Every year there are numerous entries that are clearly off score wise...the contest isn't worth it, if you shoot it that means it made you happy no matter the score so who cares. If it is a 80 inch buck who cares...if it is a 100 inch buck who cares...if it is a spike who cares.

    Tynimiller here (real name Ty Miller). From Northern, IN and this season I got high hopes yet again, BUT have a baby coming September 2nd.....so my normal hunting hours will be DRAMATICALLY lessened this year.

    Last year was an INCREDIBLE and RARE season for me, when my plan came together on a buck that grossed 175...but I'm usually chasing bucks in the 130-150 range and Lord willing I can do that this season.

    My state's normal archery season starts October 1st...but for those with reduction zone properties you can start September 15th (earn a second buck tag there though so doe first).

    Brett here from central Virginia. Will be hunting two large military bases this fall, with some other public pieces mixed in here and there. I had a trail cam out on a lake spot and picked up a real nice 7 pt id like to get a crack at this year. Good luck everyone.[​IMG][​IMG]

    Jake checking in. Great to see some well known/real active members on the team!

    I'm from central MN and will be hunting the family farm mainly. Don't have many big deer on camera as of yet. We finally get the chance to take a doe and buck this year so that is my goal. I have never shot a buck with my bow (I've passed many smaller bucks).

    Now that I've checked in, I will talk to everyone after the season :lol: .

    Good luck.

    Hi everyone! I can't wait for archery season to start. I live and hunt in Pennsylvania. I have about 140 acres I can hunt in western PA and here in eastern PA I hunt mostly public land. I look forward to this up coming season and hearing from all of you.

    Scott checking in here from South Central PA. I mainly hunt on our 2 farms in Ohio. I will be headed out there this weekend to plant my fall food plots. I'm sure my corn and soybeans have just about reached there potential. Glad to be on the team and looking forward to this fall.

    I have been burned (some long stories) about posting some of the bucks I'm chasing online (my Small Acre Hunting page/site) but I usually share a few here and will a few. One of the coolest bucks I'm after though is a buck named Bertier. He got hit by a car back in November of 2016 (tore a whole antler off...busted up his right back leg...) well surprisingly this dude without having a functioning back leg has illustrated how tough they truly are and now in 2019 is still around and as always is EXTREMELY unique since injury. Here's a couple pictures of the odd goof by a fence along one boarder (NOT HIGH FENCE PROPERTY...neighbor's fence).

    I have tons of footage and know precisely where this wounded warrior prefers to bed (video'd him in his bed multiple times this year).

    He isn't the biggest buck I'm chasing...may not be top 3 even, but the story is INCREDIBLE with him.

    Only got this picture of this guy (Highrise) on phone, not the clearest but this is a buck I passed in 2017...Pops almost killed in 2018...and BLEW UP this year. He is a 4.5 or 5.5 year old. Dude is very active on the property and like Bertier, illustrates the property is one of his favorites to spend his time on both in late summer and fall (based on past years constant use).

    Some good bucks.

    Sometimes the story that goes with them over the years makes those hunts the most memorable. I have had a few over the years with a few years history and even if I never closed the deal on them...
