    Bow doesn't start until Sept 27th up in northern NY and a few days later to the south. Haven't seen a whole lot, some good size tracks, but the camera's only picked up a doe so far. We need to move it around a little bit.

    Anyone else feel like they're not prepared for the season? Maybe its because this is my first year bowhunting, but Holy Cow, do I feel rushed!

    not at all. i try to get outside when it is nice all year long and take some practice shots. keeps you loose ready. though my prep has not been that good this year due to work but i should have no problems. then again, hunting is never a sure thing you won't know anything for sure until hunt day. main point is to go out and do it.

    Sounds like i have the latest start of everyone so far. Illinois doesn't open till Oct. 1st. Not so much rushed as much as not sure what to do next. I need to move my stand, get my 50 and 60 yard pins set (no way I'll ever take that shot this year), re-fletch 3-4 arrows, get a fall food plot going, and make sure my pack is still packed. :jaw: :eek:

    My name is Mike, my dad Tom (short69) is on that team.:rant:

    Looks like either grizz or fish .. Unless I missed someone. You guys just want to work that out :)

    I honestly don't care what we call ourselves but we should have a name(:should we just let the new captain pick one .. Kind of an executive decision

    And last thing is we still are four members short
    How long do we want to or should we wait before calling for replacements

    going to bring it into the shop and see if they can get a part. brought it in already because the limb was bent. they said all i needed was a new string and now i might have to wait on a part. I'm afraid i won't have time to practice between school and farm work. just having one of those days

    Tough break on that bow, good luck getting her back up and running. Thats always been a fear of mine right before season opens.

    If no one else wants it, I'll volunteer for Captain.

    We still need a team name....so far we've gotten:

    Swamp Donkeys
    Leftovers
    The Replacements
    Mr. Irrelevants
    Stick and String Stepkids
    No Show Hereos
    Inglorious Buckterds
    Stand Warmers

    I vote for "Leftovers."

    By the way I'm Craig, 35 years old, live in South Central MN but do all my hunting in the southeast part of the state. I work for the MN DNR and have been bow hunting 19 years. I've been on the winning team for this contest twice, so I bring some real experience to the table (read complete sarcasm).

    Once we have a name, anyone good at making avatars?

    I leave for Colorado on Thursday to chase elk so I wont be around much if at all the next 2 weeks. Here's some of the pics I've been getting this year. If I've learned anything, all trail camera pics do for me is get me to stay on stand that extra hour when I'm cold wet and my feet are froze. They've never meant bucks on the ground for me so far.

    I can do avatars. I'm impartial to the captain roles.

    Obsessed Bowhunter checking in. Just checked my messages and saw that I was on a team. I live in S.E.Ky and always take the first week of November for my vacation. I have a 160+ buck running around close to my home. My father in law's dog brought one side of his shed home earlier this year. I will try to post a pic if I'm able to. Season opened here September 7 but I haven't gotten out yet. This one side grossed 70 3/8"
