Our locations when you think about it are ridiculous! Midwest and then up north...gotta love it.
I don't put as much faith in gear as some, but this year will be my second year shooting a Mission Venture 70lbs loaded with a stiff spined Gold Tip Pro Hunter tipped with a 125gr Slick Trick Magnum (plus a 20gr insert to boost FOC a touch more).
I've over the past couple years God's treated me great with 2 P&Y bucks and a 110+incher in the last 4 years...this year I'm pushing hard all October to touch the 140 range nothing less (unless a meaty old bruiser with just a small rack comes out). On the trail of a couple bruisers, 1 is much bigger than RD (the buck I posted at the beginning) but has dodged our cameras thus far, just eye sightings.
As for the captain role nomination, if that's what you guys want I can take the reigns of that job I guess.
Pretty nice setup Sask. Both the bow and the herd of whitetail.
Here's what I am shooting. All info is in my sig.
For those interested. Couldn't help but tinker around with a team sig pic for those who would want. This is just one thought if we do Dirt Nap Daydreamers. Absolutely nothing special, just bored.
*Obviously it would be shrunk down when uploaded as a sig image.
One more thing, I edited the first post in our team thread and put the roster. If the name's in bold that means they've checked in. I'm gonna start pm'ing guys today probably at some point who haven't found their way here.
I think that name has a ring to it. I also really like that sig pic.
Checking in from Illinois, will be hunting west central Ill. Have a big 9 and a twelve on camera this year.
NICE! Another IL hunter...loving the Midwest melting pot we got going on here with some dashes of other great spots!
Welcome kfin1953. Can't wait to see one of those bucks in the scorecard thread.
Do you live in Joy, just wondering I have a sister who lives there
Nice buck there kfin!
Okay we gotta get a team captain and name nailed down. I'd nominate OutbackRyno and I'm good with Dirt Nap Daydreamers
Team Captain nominations are: Tynimiller and OutbackRyno
Tame Name nominations are: Dirt Nap Daydreamers
FYI to everyone, pm's have went out to those who haven't checked in yet. We currently sit at:
nattripeltt ( I believe this should be nattriplett...)
5 more need checked in, we need to decide on a captain (OUtbackRyno and Tynimiller only ones nominated so far) and a team name (Dirt Nap Daydreamers is the only one stated so far).
I say Dirt Nap Daydreamers is our team name. As for captain. I will do it if you would rather not Tyni, but everyone should atleast throw out there opinions.
I'm willing, but want everyone like you said to be able to give their thoughts. I'd say unless another team name is presented today we'll make it official tomorrow morning and hopefully will have a captain by then as well (I can plan on it unless things change...already sending out pm's to non-check in guys anyways) :D
I agree with you. You created the thread and all. Just didn't want you to feel obligated. If no other suggestions are made. You can go over to the Captain/ Team name thread and throw up your name and DND.
Will do, I might just do it now...DND was brought up yesterday and nothing new and all is quiet on it so might as well nab it. Besides we could always change it here in the next day or so if I begged Fitz.
Here's another sig option for those who want to do such a thing:
Name sounds fine to me, if Tyni don't mind being captain he has my vote.
yes i do live in joy
Separate names with a comma.
