    Coop thanks for putting in the extra work on the logos...I'd have to say I like the top one with team 2 on the bottom.

    As for what I do, I work at a bank (not a branch) and do work on a computer all day...needless to say I love spending all my extra time out in the woods!

    That works for me. Good work guys!

    I sent a message to Fitz asking him to add our team name to the thread title. Just a heads up in case you can't find it later...

    I hate it, blah, yuck...:). Kidding of course, good work Covey!

    I was leaving it simple since some members mentioned wanting to make it their avatar during contest. You lose a lot of detail shrunk down. But I like it, let's call it done unless somebody objects.

    Yeah I thought about that after I posted it initially, I went back and sharpened it up some and changed the "2014" part a bit to try to make it show up a bit better in a smaller size but we'll see. Just a basic concept...it could be altered a bit and customized if needed. I've got a pretty good program here, Paintshop pro x6.

    I'm going to use it as a sig line rather than an avatar, I'd prefer to keep my normal avvy.

    Logo looks great!!

    I'm in construction equipment sales up here in MN. 3 years ago I was working at a customer motorcycle shop as their fabricator. Crazy going from one extreme to the other but I have ALOT more flexibility now!!
    I too didn't let any arrows fly last year. I let a lot of does and small bucks walk by and missed a nice 8 pointer at about 40 yards. I'm at a new location this year so hopefully I can pattern some deer with the trail camera and salt licks!!

    Ok yeah sorry, trying to catch up with work after being out for more than a week. Hunt was humbling to say the least. Hit one high after a spot and stalk day one. Found him later and saw him for rest of the week and he was ok (very happy about that as I was sick to my stomach). Had a few more opportunties the 2nd and 3rd days but shot through the bottom fold of the blind window. Finally on day 4 and just as the sun was about to set I was able to get one within 30 yards and put him down. It's not the biggest goat but I was so relieved to finally put it together. The unfortunate thing is that my father was filming and wasn't able to get the shot on film so not sure if there's enough to make a show of it. There's footage but since the bucks came on the opposite blind we thought I only had time to open one small window and we had to switch seats in the blind. He was filming the last buck of three that were walking past and I was shooting at the second one. Wish I had waited till the third but I couldn't see him so I took the one I could get to stop.

    As I said, it was very humbling as I really struggled and had a few bad cases of buck fever causing me to make some poor shots. I haven't had to face adversity in years as my harvest have been clean without many hiccupps. This was a good learning experience for me and I learned how to deal with buck fever and nerves that I had never had before.

    Had lope for the first time on the trip and it was fantastic. I was really surprised but was told that if it's cooked wrong it can taste terrible. I can't wait to get the meat and enjoy the tenderloins and back straps!

    I work in transportation for Hub Group. We offer IML, HWY and supply chain solutions. Who do you ship with and what mode?

    Sounds like a 3pl outfit. I ship otr and intermodal truckloads....about 80 a week. Plus LTL (2-5 per day) and small parcel (150 packages a day). I typically use asset based local carriers. The plant loads trailers directly off the assembly line...there is no warehousing. I utilize dropped trailers as a live load is near impossible.....I'm a busy guy:(

    I grew up in AZ and never once hunted or ate antelope. Muley, javelina, elk, black bear, mt lion...but never lope.
