It feels good to be home...

So out of curiosity, who on our team elected to be archery only? I did and can at least guarantee a doe. I'll be hunting primarily Barry and Calhoun counties. I thought I read that any member on your team that chose bow only your team got extra points for.. is that still happening or no?

Only 14 days left till bow opener.

Im bow only also, you get 2 extra point for bow only or if you picked gun only but not for combo. I will try to put up some point for us in the early season, the hoyt is all tuned up and ready to rock:evil:.

I'm bow only. I'll take a doe or 2 for meat, but my buck prospect is up in the air. I lost 2 properties from last year (one was a 360 acre farm with a 20 acre pond/swamp :( ) but I picked up 2 and am working on a third new property along with the family land in Arenac County. I bow hunt right through rifle season anyways.

QDMAMAN was just stopping by to put his two cents in about our name, which was very funny.

I am hunting combo. The area I hunt generally is really good for bow, okay for gun, but starting around thanksgiving through muzzleloader gets really good, especially if we get some snow and cold temps. I am heading out west on November 6th and will be back the within a day or so of our gun opener, so I hope to get a big boy down during the first couple weeks of bow, and will then probably cool it to keep my wife happy, until I get back from out west. I did draw a bow hunt on Shiawassee National from December 1 through 5th, not sure on exact dates, around that period. Have some good spots located. I will put down a doe, but generally will wait until muzzleloader. Good luck guys!!!!

Well - one more time. Had my ego put in check last night. I showed my wife our team logo. She said sounds like a name I could use at home, thinking she was referring to the lethal injection, I thought it was a complement, she was quick to point out that she was referring to the silent but deadly part. oh well:lol:

I'm representing both bow and gun. Last year I did bow only. The extra points were nice but I would have gotten more points doing a combo.

I've been away for awhile and have not and will not be able to scout out my property. I'll get there the weekend before the opener. So I'll do one walk through and see what going on. It usually doesn't change to much but one of the four property's on our south line changed hands. It was a serious bedding area and high pressure get away section. I've been told that someone has put a large camper right in the middle of the property. Which should drive the majority of deer to take refuge in our abandoned orchard (which they normally do early in the season).

We'll see what happens and then report back mid-October.

Yeah that guy that shot that buck is a douche bag "I forgot to get my tag" He even admits he remembered he didn't have it before he shot it when the deer walked in. No more record for you.. way to go ace.

Anyway I've been seeing quite a few deer coming around our crab apple trees the last few weeks. They usually have everything pretty well cleared out of there by Oct. but sometimes early they're still hitting them looking for left overs. No sightings of anything impressive but there was a descent little basket 6 and a small 8 that I have seen a couple times. The little 6 hasn't really got anything to worry about.... for now... but seeing as I didn't get any antlers with the bow last year I'm afraid that 8 is fair game for me.
