nick.mitchell1984 checkin in. Will be hunting private and public. Looking forward to a great hunting season.

Boogeyman24 08-30-2012 07:03 PM

Anyone have suggestions for a team name or avatar? I'm not much help with coming up with ideas so if anyone has any throw them out!

This is my third year in the contest and I'm hoping to put one down early this year. Last year I got a bit greedy and watched a 140-150" come out and walk away while I waited for his bigger buddy who didn't show up. Ended up not getting one so hoping to turn that around early this year while they're still in their summer patterns. Have had the cameras out for a few weeks and have some nice ones. I'll try to upload pics and post them next week.

Look forward to seeing what's on everyone's hitlist!!

mbmrang 08-30-2012 07:14 PM

mbmrang (Mike) checking in. Will be hunting central Missouri. We have a few nice ones on camera but I haven't checked in a couple of weeks. Just this week I heard of a lot of deer dying from EHD. About 45 miles from the farm, conservation agents found 110 along the creek in a few mile stretch. It just has been too darn dry around here.

Good luck all.

ArtyJoe 08-31-2012 07:36 AM

This is my first year in the contest but I do have a hit list. If you can't guess it is the deer on the right. I call him Godzilla.

Checkin in.. season opens tomorrow here in ky!!! Hope to get a hunt in before all this rain

Lightsout 09-01-2012 07:15 AM

didn't do any good this morning here in KY. Going back out at 2 for the evening hunt. will keep you guys updated!

RackLuster 09-02-2012 02:24 PM

Checking in. I'll be hunting about half the time in wisconsin and half in minnesota. just picked up 80 acres in wisconsin. both season start 9/15.

ryndisher 09-02-2012 06:53 PM

Just thought id show you guys some pictures of the bucks ill be going after... Also, anybody have suggestions for a team name?




RIStrutStopper 09-02-2012 10:03 PM

Nice bucks, ryndisher. This guy isn't a monster but he's pretty good for around here and this pic is about 15 yards from my stand on a new property I can hunt this year:

nick.mitchell1984 09-03-2012 04:09 PM

Blood trackers? is this name used already? I cant think of anything more at the moment. I been watchin a nice buck munchin on the soybeans. He is prolly a 150+/- should stick around til season starts.

Lightsout 09-04-2012 08:36 AM

Antler Assasians? Nice bucks ryndisher. i've been hunting every morning, every evening since Saturday. I've seen my big 10 one time in 6 hunts, it's looking rough for me.

nick.mitchell1984 09-04-2012 02:22 PM

Any idea who our team captin is? And are we all checked in? Anyone know

Looking at Boogeyman24's first post it looks like we've still got 2 that haven't checked in yet. Anybody want to nominate a captain? My vote goes to the thread starter, Boogeyman24. We've also got to pick a name. They all seem recycled, so many antler addicts, silent assassins, rackaholics.... We should just pick one that isn't being used and be done with it. Bloodtrail Brothers? Backstrap Boys?

Boogeyman24 09-04-2012 06:08 PM

Nice bucks everyone, sounds like we have some really nice ones to hopefully put down. Antler Assassins or anything else sounds good to me. Also anyone want to volunteer for captain or design an avatar?

Season starts for me on the 15th, here are a few pics I've gotten this summer:








Also this was quite the surprise, it's really rare to have these around where I hunt.

Boogeyman24 09-04-2012 06:14 PM

I've never been a team captain but will if no one else wants to be. If I had a vote I think I'd switch my choice to Bloodtrail Brothers.

Anyone else have thoughts?

nick.mitchell1984 09-06-2012 03:49 AM

1 vote for boogeyman and bloodtrail brothers. I Like it better than what ive come up with. As long as we dont have any female team members. Wouldnt work out very well like that

RIStrutStopper 09-06-2012 06:17 AM

Ok, I just PM'd NJ Camo Man and Grizzlyman and asked them to check in. So far Bloodtrail Brothers has 3 votes and we've got 1 for Antler Assassins. Boogeyman24 has a couple votes for Captain. We should get this decided soon. I'll be out of town for a couple days, not sure if I'll be able to check the team thread so whatever you all decide is good with me.

ArtyJoe 09-06-2012 06:43 AM

Boogeyman gets my vote as does the name Bloodtrail Brothers.

ryndisher 09-06-2012 12:48 PM

Guess its boogeyman and The BloodTrail Brothers! haha

RIStrutStopper 09-06-2012 01:27 PM

Looks like i can get on the net here. Boogeyman, sounds like you need to check in on the captain's' thread!

Boogeyman24 09-06-2012 02:30 PM

Thanks everyone - I checked in on the team captain thread.

A few things -
Does anyone know how to change the thread title? I looked briefly but apparently not in the right place.

Anyone have experience creating an avatar? I'm not in the least a creative person so I probably won't be any help here.

Finally I believe there was talk about allowing points for a doe in this year's contest. I thought the mods/team captains were going to discuss it and if so I'll go with whatever the team's thoughts are. I believe Nick posted that he would be in favor of allowing points for does? It looks like I might be able to create a poll so I'll take a look at that tomorrow, but if everyone could speak up with their thoughts we should be able to come to a consensus.

RIStrutStopper 09-06-2012 05:08 PM

Definitely would like to see points for does. I may not even get a shot at a decent buck. I passed on a few bucks last year and never did get one. At least I can help out if I whack a doe.

GRIZZLYMAN 09-07-2012 02:29 PM

Grizzlyman checking in. Hunting Arkansas and Texas.

ryndisher 09-07-2012 06:30 PM

I can make the avatar, Ive made ones for my past 2 teams. The one i made last year is still my avatar P

mbmrang 09-08-2012 12:46 PM

Name doesn't matter to me. You have my support for team captain Boogeyman. No opinion on the points for a doe. I don't hunt to get points for a contest. I hunt because I enjoy hunting.

Only 1 week left till season. Actually, I will be waiting at an airport for sunrise on opening day. Hopefully I can get out for an evening hunt on one of the first few days. Depends on how much time I need to spend with the family.

Good luck all.

Sorry for the late check in guys. Will be bow hunting Northern NJ Zone 5. Today was the season opener and in NJ you have to earn a buck by shooting a doe 1st. So I was able to do that today so Tomorrow my focus will be a buck. Good luck out there. If I'm not too late my vote "Blood Trail Blrothers"

Better late than never. I hope you got a pic of the doe with you and your bow, looks like we may be able to score points for does this year.

Well if we can count it here it is

Boogeyman24 09-09-2012 07:10 PM

Welcome NJ and congrats on getting one down already! It looks like the team is in favor of points for does so if/when it comes to a discussion I'll make sure to voice that.

Pulled the cards this weekend and have some more on the cams, hopefully they'll stick around until opener this Saturday and I can catch up with one.

Good luck to everyone already out there!

Lightsout 09-10-2012 11:55 AM

Great job. Looks like she fill be good eat'n.

Boogeyman24 09-10-2012 06:45 PM

Congrats Shane! Teams off to a good start, and from everything I'm reading it looks like everyone is in favor of points for does! Glad you both have pictures of the full doe with bow so we should get some points for them.

It's going to be a long week waiting for Saturday opener. Bucks weren't on camera in daytime as much in the last two weeks but still had them visit a few times during shooting light. I have two stands set up specifically for early season right on the edge of the beans so I've already gone back and forth about 100 times which one I should be sitting in opening day...

No kidding. I can't wait until Saturday either. I have a few different properties I can hunt but not sure where I want to be. I think I may hit two different properties, one in the morning and another in the afternoon. Decisions decisions...
