    Looks like we have a few yet to sign in. In the mean time we need to think about team captain and team name.

    That was my second guess! Yeah I'm in Baltimore county on the Howard county line. I do a lot of hunting up at prettyboy reservoir since I grew up there. There's a couple other WMAs / CWMAs that I try to hunt also. There was one in Eldersburg off of Slacks road that was fantastic but they took it out of the program two or three years ago. Always saw deer there. Such a shame.

    Good idea on the name. I have no idea on a team captain. What does the captain even do? I'd vote for whoever has entered this contest in the past that could make sure do it right.

    Team name ideas (I won't be offended if none of these are chosen. I'm just sitting around with nothing better to do)

    Rut Went Wrong?
    ShortShirtTail Gang
    ForgotMyRelease
    TheRealDecoy
    Sooner or L8er
    Fitz Is My Father
    Old Mans Jokes

    Not sure if there's a winner in that bunch or not. Haha!

    Shedding, I those are some good ones! I like the idea of working "8" into the name. The captain has to make sure everyone checks in, post for replacements (if need be), communicate with Fitz for the team, and ensure team entries are done properly.

    I've been captain the past 3 or 4 years for the teams I've been on. Not much to it really, basically what Ghilie said plus nagging on members to get their photos taken and entered :lol: That is truly the most frustrating part.

    I will be Captain if no one else wants it, if someone else wants to do it, you have my vote


    I encourage all members of the team with a smartphone to download a camera timer app that can take multiple pics spaced a few seconds apart. Prop the phone up on something, set the timer and get back to bow and deer for 3-5 pics. Bound to be two different ones. Contest entries don't need to be glamorous or magazine quality.


    Big Terentino fan so only name I can think of at the moment is


    The Fateful 8

    I've done my time as a captain in a previous year. Perfectly happy to vote for cls74 or let someone new take the role pending anyone wants it.

    I was trying to think of a way to spin "The hateful 8" earlier and I will put a vote in for "The Fateful 8". I like it.

    I vote CLS since he has experience and The Fateful 8 sounds good....there's 12 of us but I think we mean we are the Fateful (Team) 8.

    Sounds more intimidating than Fitz is My Father or LookatDoes,lol.

    I’m fine with CLS being captain too.

    Like Travis and Ghilie, I’d like to incorporate the number 8 into the name.
    Assassin8 and Domin8 are two that come to mind.

    Once we get the name figured out I’ll work on an Avatar and an image to put in our signature. A few years ago I made the images for Nocked ‘N’ Locked when we won back to back.

    I kinda like the Hateful 8 as a team name, so it's got my vote. Clinton(CLS), if you are good with being captain, you have my vote as well. If you would prefer not, I've been in this contest for the past 5 years so I will not have problem doing it. Like it's been said, making sure we have all members checked in reminding everyone to get 2 pics posted in a timely manner.

    Not sure what everyone's phone capabilities are but the teams I have been on in the past have used Groupme as a means to communicate throughout the season. It is basically a group message board you can post anything from messages to videos.

    I'm not far from Pretty Boy. I have hunted at Liberty Reservoir and Bunker Hill(Hereford) areas a few years back. Always saw deer there, unfortunately just does.

    Hey guys,

    Checking in from South Dakota. Our season opens September 24, but my first couple weeks of fall will be occupied by two antelope tags and pheasant hunting. Here is the buck I killed last year.

    Always a couple names on a team I hope to keep up with.

    You and boof are the two that stood out for me.

    We can do this!
