    Great job @BCHunter and @ADKMtnTrapper! Team 4 has taken the lead!!!

    @ADKMtnTrapper I was daydreaming earlier today about going hunting in the adirondacks, that buck is not helping my cause :D

    Yes congrats to all.
    Team 8 I have the opportunity to upgrade my buck and add five more points but I only have 2.5 days to do it. It’s going to take more than that plus redsquirrel is almost certainly going to upgrade one of his does for at least a spike before it’s over with. I don’t know what happened. I took a scouting trip over the weekend and looked back and team 4 had taken the lead.:dizzy:

    I just returned from my Midwest trip. Several close encounters with big dudes, but couldn't seal the deal. I shot a doe out of my kestrel, but was hunting without my phone, and deboned the deer on the spot and packed it out. Sorry team 6, i let you boys down. Does a picture of a tag, meat and the kestrel count haha?

    I'd count it. The contest is for fun and as long as you are reasonable I am trying to go off an honor system.

    Good job @Root, thought I was the only one on Team 1 who was out hunting this year. Count the point!

    Ouch. I tried at least. That’s what I get for getting focused on a single buck, and passing every doe I had an opportunity on..
    I did see a very large buck yesterday morning chasing does, but he hasn’t showed since. Today is my last hunt for a good while (and possibly the season). If I don’t get something today, any other sits I might get will be brown and down.

    Hambone I don't like losing. I fully intend on upping my points once gun opens. But around here after opening weekend things get pretty tough. I'm back to going after Mr. Bigs or his cousin / brother / dad / friend / distant relative.
