    I have tons of those big ant hills at my cabin and I just picture this avatar as one of those with a rack sticking part way out of it and some ants crawling on it. Came to me in a vision one night about 6 months ago. I think it was the Leinenkugels I had that night.:beer:

    It is definitely original. I'll take that over another cliche name with thwack in it!

    Ant Farm works for me. I don't think it's been done before. Anybody got photoshop skills or do we need to hire someone to make one up?

    Ben for Capitan.

    Yeah, he's done one for me the last couple years. But since I'm not pro staff anymore I won't have any new caps or shirts to give him this year. Guess you took care of that already.

    I know Mechdoc is still around. Saw him at the GTG this year. Don't know Damian, is he new or has he been around for a while? How many posts does he have?

    Hey guys, just so you know, it doesn't take a bunch of Monster Bucks to win this thing. Below is the team that won it last season. Six bucks that averaged 116' and a whole bunch of does is what won it for them. We should be able to do that. I know a doe should be no problem for me. I have the bucks around, but getting the big guys on the ground hasn't been easy lately.

    But since I'm not filming myself anymore I don't have to worry about the extra gear and movement of the camera. I already have a stand placed in a new spot that was just to thick to film in so I didn't hunt it the last 2 years.

    Team 27 - Total - 1097 1/8"
    Monster Raxx - 50
    rizzo999- 50
    iHunt - 151 3/8
    evilstuff - 50
    wibowhuntr - 50
    rknierim- 50
    iHunt - 50
    racewayking - 50
    MNPurple - 116 3/8"
    rknierim - 67 1/8"
    Hide-A-Bow - 50
    Hide-A-Bow - 145 2/8"
    peakrut - 116 7/8"
    rizzo999- 100 1/8"

    Mechdoc checking in!! Sorry for the delay guys family,work and setting up my hunting property that is 2 hours away has been taking up all my time. My hunting property is looking pretty good so far even after all this drought. I think Boof or Ben would be great captains. Ant farm sounds good to me.

    Wow, very doable. Getting a doe won't be an issue. Right now the cameras are pretty slow with bucks over 130. I have a camera check this weekend so I'm hoping for good news to report. My confidence went way up seeing last years total.

    Ive got the photoshop skills but it will be a week before I can get to it. Just opened up the roof on my house today and will be working on that for the remainder of the week. Like I mentioned before I won a state doe permit and I see them all the time. The doe to buck ratio around here kinda sucks. Alot of does and with that the bucks dont move around so much so I've been scouting hard and hopefully will put one down before shotgun season.

    Looks great Ben! I am interested to see what else you guys can come up with for avatars, too.
