Let’s get everyone to check in so we can decide on a team name.
I’ve been in this contest every year since 2006, with that being a winning year for my team.
We got a Mathews hat if I recall for winning, so this year’s prizes really are a huge step up in incentive to win!
Going to shoot my new Mission Sniper Lite crossbow to start this season, but still have the old reliable Switchback XT in reserve for use. Probably will set it up on minimum poundage to make it easier to draw this year if I feel like taking it out. Have had some health issues so decided to make it easier on the old body and decided to try a crossbow out. Never wanted to go that route, but sometimes you do what you have to do to maximize the ability to put venison in the freezer.
I’m pretty much always good for a doe but sometimes go a couple seasons between bucks, so I’m due this season I try to shoot only 3+ year old bucks, so pass on the little guys – regardless if they are “points” in the contest. This contest is for fun, so we should all hunt like it doesn’t exist and see where the points fall. If we win, or place near the top, that’s great – but if not, there are “no worries” – we are on a mission to have fun this deer season!
Very excited about getting into the woods on Sep 11th when the MD season opens!
ArneHere from Indiana. Season starts oct 1st for me. First time one the contest but I’m sure I can get some points. 2 years ago I took 5 does and a buck. Last year I took 3 does and a 10 pointer.
Sent from my iPhone using TapatalkHey all, checking in from Kansas, season starts here in about 3 weeks. Really looking forward the contest. I hope we can all continue to check in from time to time even though I know its hard during season. I have been in 3 contest so far and the communication really drops off. Really though, the board in general has been dead for a while. I have only been bow hunting for 6 years so I really like to hear what everybody else is doing, as I also will have some questions pop up from time to time. I havent looked at our regs yet this year, usually in our area of the state we have been able to take 3 does and one buck, it all depends on the numbers. I too really only look for 3+ year old bucks. I hope everybody has a safe and succesful year. Got a couple pics from the hit list

Feel free to post your own photos I know I am sure looking forward to seeing them, as I am sure everybody else is too.
Joined: 5/20/2009Scott from Mississippi. Think this is my 7th/8th year in contest. Hope we have a active team. Season starts Oct. 01 and runs until Jan. 31 so I have plenty of time to get some points. Usually don’t run many cameras because the batteries get eaten up taking pics of hogs. I do have two out right now so might have some to post up. I’m good with any team name. No help with banners. Good luck to every one.

Joined: 1/31/2008Good morning guys. Vance here checking in from Minnesota. I hunt here and also in Buffalo County WI so I have some decent opportunities to shoot a good buck. I also only shoot (or try to ) mature deer. I have been in this for 7 or 8 years and try my best to keep in touch. I am usually better earlier in the season than later. 3 weeks til opener for me. I do have 3 boys that play hockey so I don’t get a ton of time to hunt but usually add points every year. Nice meeting you all and good luck this season!Just PM’d MQ1DXT to try to get everyone checked in on the team.
Not sure if you guys care but I always like to pick a team name to give us an identity for the contest.
If you have any ideas for names just post them here. Also, I can do a static banner for our team – but don’t know how to do those fancy moving ones.
Started re-sighting in my XT yesterday and hope to finish the task today. After putting it down to minimum poundage so that I could draw it this year the pins definitely needed some adjustment.

Got the XT and Sniper Lite both dialed in out to 45 yards yesterday. Today a buddy and I moved a stand to a better spot on the private land we hunt and also put out some trail cams. Also ordered a 4×4 raised blind so that I can take my 3 year old grandson out both safely and comfortably, at least one or two evenings to watch a hunt during the season. He’s never seen a live deer, so it should be fun!I may have found a way to help with some points. Went to hang treestands and pull cards today, needless to say from the pics I gotof a new deer, i’m going to have a hard time sleeping. Also, we have officially have our first 2 hard horned deer. Can’t wait to get int he stands.
I know score is not the only thing, but with the major palmation on both sides what do you all think? Looks like I got a new no. 1 on the hitlistIncredible looking buck. That my friend would be a great deal of points. As far as team name goes I’m not real picky. I thought about Arrow Force One or U.S. Arrow Force haha. Anyways I just got my new nighthawk bow press in the mail and my new axion glx sight. Just waiting on my string to show up so I can get back to shooting

That’s an AWESOME buck!! Hope you get him.Heading out tonight to hunt through the weekend, We have had temps in the upper 90’s all week with 30-40 mile per hour winds. We are supposed to get a 20 deg drop in temps and high pressure, so I am hoping that will get the deer up and moving. Wish me luck, and good luck and safety to all who are already hunting, or are getting ready to start.
Joined: 1/31/2008Hey guys. Just checking in. Is anyone hunting yet and having any luck? I have been out twice and have yet to see a deer. I had a nice 9 pt patterned to a T for 3 straight weeks. I had to be gone for WI opener and the guys I share the lease with shot him. I will attach the pic. This is the buck I was targeting but now will look for another one. Let me know how you guys are doing. Thanks VNo luck here, I have been out 3 times now and the temps are way to hot. I have not seen any of my big bucks on cameras. It seems since shedding their velvet they have gone into hiding. I had doe’s at about 10 yards on all of my hunts, but they had fawns with spots still on them, and I didn’t want to shoot. I hope we get some temps to drop and some more north winds.Good luck guys. My opener is next Thursday hopefully will get out in the morning. My hunting will be hit and miss until first week of November. I store and winterize about 300 boats usually I am just about done by November 1st
