    My name is Nate from West Central MN, I just turned 42 on Monday. I’ve been bow hunting since I was 12. I hunt a mix public and private in MN & SD. Last three years I’ve been on team 3 with another member of our team Dawg007.

    Just got done building a house, the picture below is my new den. The four deer in this pic are from the last 5 or 6 years. I have last years soaking in Hydrogen Peroxide he should be done tomorrow. I’ll post a pic tomorrow.

    I don’t have any cameras out yet. I’ve just been glassing. I know for certain there are a few big boys that made it from last year. I’m actually thinking about going to SD on Sunday for the opener.

    I’m Aaron from Michigan. I’ve been bow hunting for 6 years. Have a 30 acre chunk of private land I have permission to hunt. I’ve hunted waterfowl since I was 12. I’m 37, have a wife and 4 kids that keep me busy. 2nd year in the competition. I did not have an opportunity to shoot a deer last year. I have high hopes for this year. Looking forward to getting to know some of you and glad to see a couple of team mates from last year.

    Hey all! I'm Garet from NW Iowa. I'm 28 been bow hunting for like 4 years now. Didn't get out a lot last year due to a new kid and a new hobby. Don't have a lot of time this year either so I plan to do no scouting or prep work and just spontaneously get out and hunt when I can. I have stands set up along a river bottom in NW Iowa 15 min from my home and a couple stands set up in SW Iowa where I'm originally from. Both locations are stocked with deer so whatever walks up will be a fun surprise.

    Hey guys! Team Haastyle checking in! Looking forward to another year of the contest! I'm 31 and live in SE Wisconsin with my wife and two kids (Wyatt and Summer). I work as an aquatic biologist for Wisconsin Lake & Pond Resource, but also own a land management company (CreekBottom Land Management). This year I will be taking on three different states with the bow (Wisconsin, Kansas, Kentucky). Will actually be leaving for Kentucky next week Friday in hopes of a velvet buck. However, I do have a good deer I am after here in Wisconsin which is going to make me lose sleep at night for sure. Will post some pics when I get on my home computer. Good luck guys, and don't forget to shoot some does for those easy 50 points!

    If I remember correctly Archbunk and Team Haastyle we were all on the same team last year, we did pretty good as a team!

    Got that right! We needed 1 good buck or two mediocre to be in the running for sure. This year lets make that leap to the winning circle!

    A little about me. I live in NE Ohio, 39 years old with two boys ages 10 and 6.

    I've been in this contest every year, dating back to the first contest in 2004 on the old site before this one (HNI). I've entered a buck in 11 of the 14 years and hope to this year as well.

    Buckeye was on the team as well. We did pretty well as a team. Unfortunately I was not able to contribute any deer last year. This year is going to change.
