    Checking in. Good to see some names I know - cmtrav and I were on the same team last year and text frequently. He's usually good for a buck a year.

    Twitch is my nickname so we will go with that - for reference purposes the Indiana State Sycamores are my alma-mater.

    I will hunt two maybe three properties in Indiana this year. 18 acres (three of which I own) behind my house. 80 acre lease with 2 other buddies down the road that hunts much bigger than 80 acres and is a dynamic & beautiful piece of property. Have access to a new property that's 80+ acres as well have a few cameras running but haven't spent a lot of time on it. More of a backup plan than anything else.

    I'm getting married in December (was able to avoid November) and might not have as much hunting time come the late season as Ive had in past seasons.

    Last year I killed this buck on a lease that I dropped at the conclusion of last season. That might provide you a little insight into how special this 80 acre lease I'm on is.

    Got a few really nice deer on camera this year that we've been watching most of the summer. Some of the more recent highlights include:

    Probably needs one more year but beautiful buck:

    Also probably needs another year but we will see how things play out:

    Definitely a shooter:

    Look forward to meeting you all and wishing everyone the best of luck this season!!

    Hey guys, glad to meet you. I'm Travis from southeast Ohio. Been hunting all my life but bowhunting since 2009. Still looking for the one I want to hang on my wall. I let a decent buck pass last year and missed an old gnarly buck. Ended up with just a doe I got opening day. The property I hunt is about 120 acres. Mostly hay fields, hills and woods. There's been some slobs out there. I've only checked the trail cams once this year. Had some potential shooters. Also had 4 stinkin coyotes eating a fawn in front of my camera.

    I'm also a part of a little hunting group called Shedding Light Outdoors. We're 3 guys who have a passion for hunting and a passion for the Lord. So we film our hunts and have a blast doing it. Been at it since 2015. Here's a highlight video I made to show at our booth we set up at homecoming and a local fair. Check it out if you want. Looking forward to a fun season with you all!

    Very cool.
    I'm from NE Ohio and didn't start hunting till college. This year will be adventure as I am moving and will finally be able to hunt my own property which connects to another 150 acres of timber. Hope to get cameras up by end of Aug to do some type of inventory.
    Good Luck to everyone we have some good teammates as I have been on various teams with each of them through the years.

    Hey guys, my name is Chris I hunt 40 acres of private and lots of public land in Central Wisconsin. I've been bowhunting since I was 13 and love everything about it!

    I just checked cams this last weekend but haven't had the chance to upload pics yet...finally got a couple shooters this year and I know there are a couple of big ones from last year that haven't shown up yet this year.

    Look forward to getting to know all of you this year...hopefully we have good seasons!

    Hi, guys. Checking in from Northeastern Pennsylvania...a land with quite a few deer and LOTS of hunters!
    A little bio...I am 43 years old, have a wife and 2 young daughters, and a couple of German Shepherds. I am principal and full-time teacher at a small Christian school and love it!
    I've been keeping my eye on a few decent bucks, and look forward to another great season.

    I don't want to be captain. So take my name out of the hat.

    I have one team name selection of a video online that was recently sent to me. Thought the title was kinda catchy. It's pretty difficult to come up with names that haven't been used in the past.

    You Had Me At Meah

    That's all I got...
