Just found out my wife has to work late 2 nights a week when she starts her new job, so that's 2 more guilt free hunting nights for me :)

What is this "guilt" thingy you speak of? Not familiar with that term. Haha

This is only season #2 in the saddle for me. Been hunting since I could walk. And while I will likely have access to the most 10+ point private land bucks of anyone this year - it will all be new property and none of it has been scouted. And I won't even get to hunt all the good bucks I could hunt.

So I could score big on some silly non-typical. Or I could pass on some small 10's early waiting on a big boy that never shows up.

So I can be hero or zero for my team. Based on my track record, they can probably count 10 points at most from me.

Two 8 points in one year... I know plenty of Michigan guys who would like to have a year like that! Just found out my wife has to work late 2 nights a week when she starts her new job, so that's 2 more guilt free hunting nights for me :)

My hunting career is not too great.

2012 zero hunted 5 times
2013 one hunted 10 times
2014 zero hunted 10 times
2015 2 bucks in 12 hours out of the same tree stand I hunted 30 times in various places

I call that providential grace... some call it luck last year.

Two eight points are good for southern Ontario too.. Hopefully I have some grace again. or luck

I know I will not pass on opportunities like Dave does. I may not get another opportunity

Been using a saddle off and on for 10+ years. I had an original Anderson sling way back when. I do ok getting in bow range of a few deer each season.

Just curious...Team 2, where are you all from...I am in Baltimore, MD.
Minneapolis. Opener is Saturday but I won't be able to get out until next weekend. Here's last year's deer, but unfortunately it was the one day I hunted out of a blind....

Ok, the moment we've all been waiting for!!!

Everyone is assigned the number below. I am using the random number generator here, https://www.randomizer.org/, to generate the numbers. The first five numbers will comprise team 1, second five team 2 and so on. I made two exceptions to the post count because they are longtime members. I have decided to close the contest entries at this point also.

Any way we can add a team if we have enough people interested in being on it?

I'm really sorry Prill, we're not doing that this year. The reason is because in the past we would have new members join the site, join a team and then never come back to the site. I had invoked the 20 post rule to try to ween that out for the same reason.

Alright, thanks for the reply. I admittedly haven't been as active.

Yeah, man. I was happy to see you posted. Good to see you back here.
Changed jobs and have been fishing hard. Now that it's just about opening day in Pa I'm shifting back and will be posting more frequently. Although I've got a fishing trip scheduled for mid October, I'll be out opening day and getting back out last week of October/ first week of November.

Glad to be back.
