    Is this the same creek crossing you had a couple years ago? If I remember you had some great bucks in there.

    Checking In

    Chris Jay from central Illinois. 4 year old twin dad and obsessed deer hunter. Blessed to be able to hunt some of the best whitetail country around. Lucked into some decent bucks over the last few years. Still trying to climb the ladder on the most mature deer! Looking forward to October 1!

    I second Holt. It's been a few years since I've been in the contest, so I'm not up to speed on what all is involved.

    I don't mind being captain, as long as you guys vote for it. If not I don't mind if someone else wants it. Good either way.

    That’s a stud there! They’re mostly still velvet here as well. That deer is a home body and roams all times of day and night it seems. Second year for him on our family lease. He’s a bully! I’m hoping my dad gets a crack at him!

    My problem is I am hunting a spot that is shared between 3 of us. 1 of the 3 doesnt bow hunt, so get an early crack, by my brother in law hunts it with an X Bow. I am essentially only going to get 1 early crack at that one...4 days scheduled middle of Oct. Then I wont get back out there until Thanksgiving week. I know once the first couple drop, the pressure will reduce odds quite a bit, so my first sit will be a very patient one with long days in the stand/blind.

    Thanks! Doing okay for an old guy and a newly crowned Great Grampa!

    Our granddaughter blessed us with our first. He's 2 and a half months old... and he already has dibs on my Kimber 6.5 Creedmoor. There's a BIG 10-point hanging out behind his poppa's house, but I think his dad has it pretty much staked out for himself. He's such a hog... LOL.

    It's really great to 'see' some of the old crew posting. I kinda keep in touch with Heckler off and on via FB, and I've enjoyed watching his and tynimiller's boys grow up.

    It actually feels great interacting with y'all. I hope everyone participating in the contest has an enjoyable season and gets to experience God's great outdoors safely.

    OMG... Absurd Herd. I think you and I would get along quite well with our sense of humor.
    AND... I love your avatar - nice XKE(!) is it a '68?

    Not trying to influence anyone... keep team name ideas coming.

    Thanks. I get my "warped" sense of humor from my dad.

    It is actually a 1970 3.0 Marcos GT...very similar to the XKE. Same market (British) and falls into that British sports car era. Another passion I am slowly growing into that I inherited from my Dad.
    Heck, thats how I landed here. He was the one to pick up bow hunting about 10 years back. Went Elk Hunting (Spot and Stalk) in NM. Only got the draw once, got one opportunity, came up short and never got another opportunity again. Looking to improve on that by starting with some Whitetails.
