    Tynimiller -

    Real name is Ty. Born, raised and presently still live and hunt in Northern Indiana (for reference I'm about 45 mins East of Notre Dame). Nearly a 10 year forum member, and thanks to these competitions I've literally gained some hunting friends for life, even got to hunt Kansas one year due to the friendships formed.

    This fall will be the first year without the ground I grew up on (9 acre homestead) ever, as the parents sold and are moving. That tiny sliver delivered a ton of 115-145 inch bucks over the years and was a honeyhole. I still have a stand on two neighboring parcels I can hunt, but I rarely make it there much. I own 23 acres of my own and hunt a 70 acre farm also as my main two. This year's crop of bucks for my area are arguably some of the best I've had going into a season. I'll share a few over the coming days...but I'm nearly always good for a doe/anterless harvest and if I shoot a buck it'll be around a P&Y or better....just don't expect me to repeat my 2018 booner year LOL.

    Checking in, though I'm not sure I need to at this point. :lol:

    There's a few old teammates on the list. In fact, Brett was on my team last year.

    My name is Johnny and I live in SE Missouri. I retired from the Navy in 2008, worked at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital for 10 years and then decided to retire while I was still young enough to enjoy it.

    I'll be hunting three states this year, starting in Kentucky this Friday the 5th. Missouri season starts on the 15th and then Arkansas starts on 01 October, though I normally save Arkansas for later in the season.

    Mitch checking in from SW Michigan where I born and raised. Can’t believe another year is upon us. Been in the competition for 4-5 years now and have faired pretty decent, still chasing that 200 point club. Last year being my closest at 192 I believe where an opening day surprise got my season started.

    I am way behind this year as far as hanging stands and cameras but I did get out a few weeks ago to make sure I was good to go on all my permission farms.

    I will be hunting here at home as much as possible and will also be heading over to Ohio towards the later part of October for 5-6 days of hunting.

    Can’t wait to get to know everyone and have a blast doing it!

    Guess I should do a brief introduction, which I missed just checking in. I am JD, I live in upstate NY, between Albany, NY and Bennington VT. I have been up here 2 years, originally from north FL. I am a pastor at a church up here. I was on a team a few years back, but with moving 2 years ago, a baby last year, I haven't been able to hunt very much.
    I have been hunting a farm for the past two years, unfortunately the farmer and farmer before has given permission to alot of people. No one else bow hunts, but gun season gets a little crazy. Not many good bucks in terms of racks in this area, heavy doe population and most young bucks don't get an opportunity to mature.
    The season begins Oct 1, looking forward to hearing how everyone's season goes.

    It's Brett. Live in Springfield, Nebaraska and currently the police cheif in Valley, Nebraska. Valley is 10 miles west of Omaha and beleive me it is a **** hole. I hunt three properites in Nebraska and this year I was lucky enough to draw a Iowa tag ($673.00) which only comes around about once every five years. Our Nebraska season starts tomorrow and temps are forecasted to be only 75 degrees so I will be hunting tonorrow after work. Welcome you all to team 12...the dirty dozen

    Oldcarp checking in. I'm just heading out to hunt elk for a couple weeks.
    Quick introduction. I have 5 children and 16 grandchildren that enjoy hunting with me. So I am very blessed that way. I love to bow hunt elk and shoot at ducks and chase deer. I didn't draw a deer tag here in Utah. but I did draw a big Bull tag here. I do have family in Kansas I hunt with. So I will be out there the first 2 weeks of November in hopes to putting some points on the board for us.
    I think over the years I have been on a couple teams with Tynimiller. Anyway it will be good to get to know ya'll and have a little fun with the contest.

    Fletch here. I am a recovered whitetail addict, but it seems like I have recently started a relapse since my wife has taken interest in deer hunting. I just closed a week ago today on a 3rd property that may have some decent potential. I have yet to ever step foot on it, but hope to get it scouted and hang a camera or two this week. I have been getting some surprises on camera this year on the only property I have a camera on and hope to put some inches on the board for this team. Looks like a strong group!

    Settle down fellas, I have arrived!
    This a solid looking team!
    I'm Steve, most call me Mc, Mac or Steve, don't care either way. I'm in Tennessee (just north of Nashville) but also hunt southern Illinois, I have an awesome spot picked for Illinois and my recent trail cams in Tennessee just showed me 3 good bucks.
    I have a 4 year old playing fall T-ball that goes into the first week of November but I do not see any issues to getting time in the woods. I played horn hunter last year and let a really nice buck walk, fortunately I have him on camera again and he's grown since last year.
    Super pumped about this season, can't wait to lay down some derrrrs.
