    Looks like we’re missing Mr. O, Kody Nehl, WillO and Rumchada1443. Not sure how to reach out to them or have them replaced

    I was recommended for captain beings I had first blood but this is my first year on the forum and on a team so not sure if I wanna start as captain wanna see how this year goes and how it all works first hopefully that makes sense! Also are you familiar with cedarville university? My brothers goes to Ohio for college there. And we should get this thread going we only have three pages. Let’s get some conversation going haha... I haven’t been hunting sinse the doe I shot been really busy with work and building an apartment for my wife and I! Almost ready for our occupancy inspection so that will free up a lot of time when that’s done! I can’t wait to get back in the woods!

    If nobody else is willing, I’ll go ahead and do it. Gonna need help from a Grizzled Veteran though. Not really sure what’s required of the Job. I catch on quick usually. Big temperature drop here tonight in Northern IL, plus a big front just pushed through. Heading out for my first sit later today. Will try to post a photo or two of my setup and the deer I arrow ;).

    You will be a fine Captain. It has been to hot here to get out but next week is cooling down so if I can get caught up on some work at home I am gonna get in the woods.

    It’s beautiful hunting weather here in New Hampshire just working again though instead! Was 38 degrees this morning so woulda been amazing to sit in. I’m going to try get out Saturday morning as it’s supposed to be 32 degrees so hopefully I can shoot my first NH buck this weekend.

    Messages were sent to those that have yet to check in, hopefully they’ll grace us with their presence soon. Everyone in favor of sticking with The Alternates as a team name? I’m good with it.

    75 here yesterday, high of 64 today with lows at 44 tonight, perfect day for a first sit. First big weather change of the season. Hopefully some of you can find time to hit the woods, I know I’m ready for my tree stand therapy.

    I posted my Sitka Fanatic Coat and Bibs for sale in the classifieds the other day. Would really like to get them sold if any of you gentlemen know someone looking for amazing gear. Might be willing to come down in price a little for a teammate

    I am good with the alternates as the name also. And I’m looking forward to being back in the tree sure have been missing it. I honestly have been looking around for new gear recently so I am a little interested.

    The Alternates is a great name.

    Fine with whoever being Captain, I’ll help out as I’ve been here the longest.

    My brother almost smoked our #1 last night, got blocked by a smaller buck at the shot.

    I’ve had decent action from stand and cold front coming through this weekend, should be exciting.

    Thanks Siman, that’s a great looking Buck! Too bad for your brother but we’ll call it Fate for you. Hope you get a crack at him.

    I was hesitant about Sitka because of price but was tired of being cold. The stuff is amazing. They just redesigned the Fanatic line, right after I bought mine. That’s the only reason I am selling, to upgrade to the new line. The stuff is basically brand new, flawless condition. I have photos posted.

    Yeah that’s the thing I don’t want to be cold anymore. But you are right about the price have looked at them for awhile and they are quite spendy.

    Hey, everyone. Mr. O checking in (finally). I didn't get signed up in time to make a team, so I wasn't watching the Contest thread. Thanks for the email, Illinois Outdoorsman!
    I'm from Northeast PA by the way...our season starts Saturday.
