    Checking in. I will be bowhunting Minnesota and Wisconsin. I also drew a late muzzleloader tag for Iowa. I don't have as big of bucks on camera this year so far but do have 2 nice ones showing up pretty regularly.

    Francis checking in.. I'll be hunting Ohio.

    Monster Raxx you probably don't remember me, but I remember you from the WTW day's...pretty sure I've still got one of your shirts. I'm a driver for UPS so it can be very tricky for me to find time to get out. Luckily this year I was able to use my vacation and be hunting 14 days straight starting Nov 3rd. Be at hunting camp with Josh/OH and Buckeye. Then whatever weekend that I'm not stuck at work.

    How did everybody do last year?

    KY: Opening Day 10pt

    TN: Opening Day 10pt

    IN: Day before gun 10pt

    I knew I had very limited hunting opportunities in KY and TN so I punched 2 tags early. I big deer hunted and walked 6 bucks 120-130 trying to kill a 150. It never happened and I killed a 10pt while walking out on public in Indiana.

    I have the same mentality in TN and Ohio this year but I have no problem eating my Indiana tag if I don't see the "right" one.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Jacob here in Ohio checking in. Will be hunting Ohio and Indiana, but Indiana will be shotgun only. Killed two nice bucks last year, but both with shotgun so didn't get to score for the contest.
    I spend way to much time in a stand, but luckily the wife understands!

    The 1st doe that walks by me that gives me a shot is getting a rage tipped mayhem.

    In my last 5 yrs I have killed a doe every year and 1 buck. Last year I hit my number 1 in the shoulder and never recovered him. I have some nice deer on camera which I will put up when I pull my cards next (about a week). I have the opening week off which I will be spending most of my time hunting.

    I bowhunt through the entire season. I don't know why anybody would join a bowhunting contest if they planned on gun hunting during the rut.

    I did not get drawn for a 5 day gun permit hunt this year. Which means I will be public land bowhunting through the whole year including the rut. I only drew a Muzzle loader permit this year. Its for 5 days (oct 20-24)

    I don't personally care how people choose to hunt as long as they aren't on my team. If you join a bowhunting contest you should be bow only. If you fill you buck tag with a gun you are dead weight to the team. Why join a contest and hurt your team?

    I can kill (2) bucks in Arkansas but only (1) on my permit hunt. Plus the rut is after the muzzle loading permit hunt. Our limit here in Arkansas where I live is 4 deer. Only (2) can be bucks and we have a 3 point rule. Where I bow hunt and drew the muzzle loading permit the buck rules are at least 4 points on a side, 15" spread and 18" main beam. The buck that I have on my wall from there was barely legal. It was a 7 point with a 15 1/2" spread and 18 1/4" main beams 20141112_073904.jpg

    I will spend as much time as anyone here with a bow in my hand. Rut in Ohio is not during our gun season, but I won't feel bad in the slightest if gun season comes and I pick up the shotgun and fill my tag. Every year I have done this contest it has been about having fun and enjoying talking about hunts with team mates.

    I hope everyone fills their buck tags before gun season.
