Pa_Yote_Hunter checking in. I am hunting in SEPA and have seen a few good deer in the area. Unfortunately one of the biggest 8points in the area just go hit by a car a week ago.....

Still should be a good hunting season though.

bigsugar 08-29-2011 03:16 PM

Betterbirddogs checking in. I'll be in SE Kansas where the giants roam. Have a few good bucks on camera. Have lots of places to hunt, it'll be a fun year. Shot a 150" last year about 600 yards from the house.

Here are a couple of freaks from last year. I didn't hunt that place very much. I know these deer survived because we seen them in late Dec. Hard telling what they look like this year. These two will get you thinking big deer!




BetterBirddogs 08-29-2011 03:27 PM

Sorry guys my girlfriend was logged in and I didn't realize it before I posted. We hunt together a bunch. Looking forward to a good season.

zubba 08-29-2011 06:00 PM

Zubba checking in. I'll be hunting my home state of Iowa.

IOWABUCKHUNTR 08-29-2011 07:39 PM

Kurt, with a little bit of luck I will be bringing you some business this year! I took a peek and I like what I see in your gallery, great realism in all those mounts... I take it you hunt up near the Dubuque area?

whacker 08-30-2011 01:43 AM

zubba 08-30-2011 03:43 PM

Thanks Iowabuckhunter. I hope you connect on a nice one this year. If you do & if interested in getting it mounted, call early. I'm going to be cutting back on the number of heads I do this year. I accepted a new full time job that eats up a lot of nights & my wife and I are expecting our first kid in a couple weeks. So I won't have as much time as I used to for taxidermy.

Yeah, I hunt around the Dubuque area. Actually south of Dubuque in Jackson County. How about you? What part of IA are your from/hunt?

I'll mostly be in Guthrie County this year, and with a little luck I will be getting into a couple of our other little honey holes, but they have only been managed for 2 years now. I also have access to some prime land down in Van Buren County right north of the Missouri border, but due to time constraints i.e New Job, I probably won't make it down there at all. I normally take all my animals to a local taxidermist, but he's become quite popular and it takes him a longer period of time now to get them back, so I'll be shopping a bit this year.

I actually went to school up in Cedar Falls a few years ago, so I know the northeast part of the state pretty well.

I second both... Purely out of my laziness and lack of originality on the team name, and KMCO seems to be doing a good job so far.

zubba 08-30-2011 06:41 PM

Team name sounds good to me.

KCMO Cityboy 08-30-2011 07:29 PM

I can be reached at [email protected], and my vote has already been cast for KCMO, with yours and zubba's that gives him 3.

I re-read zubba's post, he only voted on the team name... my bad :)

KCMO Cityboy 08-31-2011 11:03 AM

Hey guys, looks like most of us have signed in. Pretty impressive. I just sent some IM's out to those that haven't signed in just yet. It's still early so I'm not too concerned.
Thanks for the votes being cast for me as your captain (you are all my BFF now!), but I am hoping that someone here will step up and offer to be the team captain. I know a lot of you would like to do that. So if you would like to do that then please let me know and I'll be the first to nominate you! If no one offers and the official votes have been cast and verified by some accounting firm, then I will accept.
Halfbaked's name and avatar works for me. I like it. And if we use that avatar I will try to twist his arm to see if we can get 'Team 3' inscribed on the arrow shaft.
Zubba, first kid you say? You're really gonna appreciate the time outdoors this year!
Let us know when the big day arrives.

Bucktail_Bob 08-31-2011 12:37 PM

KCMO you have my vote……Red Mist is cool, is there a way to add a “gut” color mist to the avatar. Because when I shoot there is not always a red mist.

ZUbba, do you really think she will let you out the house? Good luck with that. Also I’ll be right across the river In IL, I have visited that club in La Matte many times.

Okay, thought I would post a pic or two. Here's a guy that we had our eye's on last year. Glad he's still around. Not the best picture, but hey, we aren't here to take pretty pictures. Do you think he's a shooter?

zubba 08-31-2011 07:54 PM


Zubba, first kid you say? You're really gonna appreciate the time outdoors this year!


ZUbba, do you really think she will let you out the house? Good luck with that. Also I’ll be right across the river In IL, I have visited that club in La Matte many times.

Boys, boys, boys....what's wrong with you? Of course I have my ducks in order for when this kid comes.

First off, I have a week vacation scheduled for the first part of November to bowhunt.

Second, my wife agreed to try for a September baby (our season opens in October). If no luck for September, we would 'take off' trying, then start trying again for a January baby.

Third, my wife is super cool about hunting. She doesn't hunt herself, but understands my addiction. To give you an idea of my last calendar year, I bowhunted October-November, shotgun hunted in December, mounted deer (taxidermist) from December until July, turkey hunted in April-May, went to Oklahoma hog hunting in March, planned a 2013 MN bear hunt, all on top of shooting archery tournaments 11 out of the last 16 weekends, checking cameras, hanging stands, ect. She understands and made the comment that there is no offseason...haha. She's great.

And did I mention I have a week of vacation designated to bowhunting the rut...lol.

BTW - I usually check in daily, but can be reached at [email protected]. KCMO, you get my vote if you are interested.

zubba 08-31-2011 07:56 PM

Oh yeah Bob, I've been to LaMotte my fair share as well...lol I actually hunt about 5 minutes from LaMotte.

He is a nice buck KCMO, at least I would have a hard time letting him walk.

SouthDakotaHunter 08-31-2011 09:32 PM

Checking in.... Hopefully should be a good year and can't wait to get to know everyone a little better. Wife and I just had our second kid a few months ago so no elk hunting this year - deciding to focus my time on whitetail hunting this year instead... Pumped that I drew an archery tag down in southern IA this year - been a few years since I've drawn - so that's where I'm planning to spend most of my sweet Nov. prime time this year.

SouthDakotaHunter 08-31-2011 09:44 PM

Hey Zub - so do we get a 'team rate' for taxidermy work this year - ha ha... Those are some sweet looking mounts on your site!!

halfbakedi420 09-01-2011 11:25 AM

well..lets see pics of everyone totally dressed out with their bow hidin in the bushes at your house. hook it up, ill get mine on soon.

I like it! except I have to go to work, so it will have to wait until tomorrow... I could post some recon shots from Afghanland...

halfbakedi420 09-01-2011 11:54 AM

well..thats too funny..i got one old team member on this team..jenna..kydeerhunter..ill hit her up, see if she is checkin in.
team capn needs to enter our team name, and announce himself as capn, from my count, no more votes needed?

KYDeerHunter03 09-01-2011 06:02 PM

hey guys! checking in! sorry im the last one to get squared away lol gonna try my best to contribute again this year..hopefully mr. big shows his face!

zubba 09-01-2011 06:31 PM


Hey Zub - so do we get a 'team rate' for taxidermy work this year - ha ha... Those are some sweet looking mounts on your site!!
Thanks for the kind words. You guys got lucky....you are teammates of 2 quality taxidermist. Kydeerhunter03 mounts a very nice whitetail as well. If you get some time, look in the archives of the buck she took last year and the fantasitc job she did on the mount. I understand there is little chance that either of us will mount any of your deer, but please do us both a favor and do some homework before you select a taxidermist. There are a lot of shady ones out there. If you need help finding a good one in your area, I would be glad to help point you to someone.
