Very nice jjones! Those are some great trophies. It is nice to see them posing in the daylight and just not after dark. Archery opens 9/5 in Kentucky? Seasons seem to be getting longer and longer. I was looking at Arkansas last week and the season there is 10/1-2/28. Furthermore, non-resident tags were pretty nice- entire season was $300 and included 4 deer, 4 turkey and a bear. I'm thinking I may try to put a group hunt together for next season.

I'm in Clinton County, a little west of St. Johns. I'm familiar with Remus as my northern property is at the family farm in Mt. Pleasant. Not exactly "northern" in Michigan standards but north of home for me. Let me know if you get to make a trip up there!

Lordy JJ!! That's a Pile-O-Meat hanging around in front of your Cam. I would sell my kids to see that many deer of that caliber in 10 seasons never mind one. Stick one for the team bud and see you guys in the woods.

Wow! Small world...your only about an hour away on M-21. Actually, I was there last Thursday and Friday to get a pop-up camper. When I was a kid my dad used to hunt around Owosso and Grand Rapids.

Leave me right out of the team name discussion!!! I actually thing we came in forth last year but after 30 plus years of deer hunting I was on the "ruttin rookies". Talk about a contridiction.. Not only don't I do much rutting any more I'm sure not a rookie. I am looking forward to changing my avatar and see no reason why we can't be the ones to knock the Dark Horses down

I do live in a state with a less than 10% bowhunter success rate but I've shot and entered deer in the contest for the last couple of seasons and I shot bigger deer that just were not my first of the year. I used to kill them in the berkshires but now all my deer fall within 20 miles of Boston.

I DID pass on deer last season but I became weak and settled for a young deer. I'm not sorry at all but this year I hope to arrow a neat piebald doe I've been watching grow older as wiser as well as a giant 6 pt with the tallest rack I've ever seen. I would even be happy with a decent smallish 8 pt I truly let walk last year. I even counted coup on him by drawing my bow and settling a pin.

I'm pumped and could be in the woods tommorrow but I have months to wait.

Rock on guys and I sure hope everyone shows up and let's be an active team.

Jjones, great bucks on those trail cameras! Very impressive deer, especially that tall tined hammer.

10 days till I start hunting here.

Team Names.. leave that up to all you young guys, I've been doing this contest since 04 .. We won it in 05..and I made some great friends from that team, some of those guys and I still travel across the country and hunt together these days. Should be a lot of fun fellas, best of luck to everyone!
