    I hunt Morgan County in West Central IL, don't get out much early season trying to give what I can to work as I normally work less than 13 days in Novemeber.

    Been on a team previously with Dmax, and spend every year in the LFTS theead with Holt, shane amd TC.

    Recognize a few of the other names as well as a few new ones.

    I think we stand a chance in this one.

    Looks like everyone has been a forum member for no less than 3 years. Should have a full team without needing an alternate request.

    Hey everyone! My name is Skyler. I live in eastern SD but hunt all over the state. The past several years I have been pretty fortunate with deer hunting on the public ground in SD.

    Here is my public land bucks from the last few years.

    I am feeling pretty good about this season. I have practiced quite a bit and am feeling confident in my shooting and have seen some pretty good deer from scouting. Season starts tomorrow, but I am unsure if I will be able to get out, if I do it will be for a doe. This Thursday I am driving out to Idaho for an elk hunt. Last year I got pretty close to shooting a nice bull and I am pretty confident I will have an opportunity this season if I do my part right!

    Likewise, I believe Dmax is the only member I've been on a team with in the past. Pretty sure that was the year we came im 2nd to Team 3 and would have won it any other year.

    Hopefully he is good luck :lol:

    Post them every year, believe me when I say it is the land and not the hunter, but here's my past contest entries.

    Had to use a crossbow for a few seasons when I tore my rotator cuff but back to a vertical bow now.

    Yea 100%. Around where I live I haven't had an opportunity at a whitetail over 100" in six years. For mule deer, I frequently see pretty good bucks and have had pretty good luck harvesting a few good ones. I also enjoy mule deer hunting quite a bit more, so hopefully I can get it done on again this year. Last year I missed a pretty good buck in velvet and blew a bunch of stalks the rest of the year.

    Nothing wrong with that, never been on a team with a spot and stalker. Going to be pretty cool following your season

    Doesn't seem like many people on this forum overall do it much. I do most of my hunting out west and its pretty much a requirement to be successful with the areas I hunt. I have already been antelope hunting a bit and have got pretty close a few times but wasn't able to get any shots.

    Here is a screenshot of the best opportunity I had, they bolted right when I started to slowly peak up to try and shoot though.

    That's awesome! I went to Colorado in 2018, I think and hunted mule deer with bow. I didn't get one, but saw a few nice ones. I was looking for one particular buck that was pushing over 200" but just couldn't find him all week. It's was a blast though.

    I just looked thru the team list and noticed that not one team seems stacked and they are fairly spread out. Looks to be a good contest this year. Looking forward to it! I'm working today so maybe this evening I can post up a few of my past season bucks.
