Hi,

My name is Tim I live and hunt in northeast Newaygo county. I hunt all private land lot's of deer not the greatest quality of bucks. I will be hunting with a bow only for the contest. I have never hunted in 30 years of bowhunting without success so I will definitely be putting some point's on the board. Hope to hear about some names maybe.

Jeff here! I will be hunting when ever and where ever I can. I may even quit my real job just for season. Mostly hunting private Calhoun turf. A little Lexington, Evart, Dexter and Illinois mixed in. Looking forward to a big season on the winning team. Anybody scouted out any Big Boys yet?

Name is Scott...and I'm hunting with bow for the contest. Own 40acres and lease another 80 in Arenac county. All private around me and most of the property owners are pretty selective these days....there are some good ones around. Unfortunately I'll miss the week just prior to rifle....I'll be in Manitoba the 10th-15th :evilsmile

They must of screwed up putt'in this team together. Winner, winner venison dinner!

And no Josh, I did'nt really notice where you were hunting and it does'nt look like any of us are short on good areas. And we still have one member to sign in. Probably hunts his own 5,000 acre apple orchard/ceder swamp/river bottom/oak stand property that butts up to a wildlife preserve in Deerheaven, Michigan. Come on Sam!!!!!

Maybe we should have are own little team contest. You know, so we can actually enjoy some competition.

I try to get up there at least one or two weekends a year. I also got my feet wet on the public land off 110th and 15 Mile. My family has a cottage on Little Long Lake. Started there when I was 10 with pops.. Never missed a year. That place is "Tradition" to me. Did you have a place up there or were you camping back in there? Even though we had a cabin, we camped most of the time. Not really camping when you have a shower, crapper and TV right up the road, but it made it more like hunt'in. Awesome country.

Name is Sam. I hunt all over, some in Marquette and Alger County, Presque Ilse county, Grand Traverse County, Ingham, and Antrim County. I am lucky, I get to go all over and hunt. Some public land but mostly private. Hunt a QDM program in some locations. Bowhunt and Rifle hunt. I will check in on here a lot, these contests are lots of fun. I would be willing to trade a hunt with one or more of you if anyone is interested in coming up here to the UP.

Jeff we just had "our" traditional camping area that we stayed every year, like everyone else had that we all became friends over the yrs..Sure do miss the area we took alot of nice deer out of there,i've only been back once since my dad died in 93' and killed a huge 6pt with an 18 inch spread and he was 41/2 yrs old...

It's nice to see someone on here that also got there feet wet in the same area.....Good luck this yr...

Some of the names have been really lame, let's go for one that's not so cheesy. Off the top of me head I don't have any ideas, whoops. I am going to spend most of the weekend getting things set, I have 5 stands I want to set here in the UP, will be lucky if I get 3 of them done. I might even consider baiting, or rather getting ready to bait, in one spot. I don't normally bait at all until december, but I want to get my little 15 year old sidekick into a deer, and I might want to video it.

I'm drawing a blank at the moment but I'll think a little harder.....

I'll be hanging some stands this weekend also...well, actually move a couple and hang 2 new ones. Make a couple repairs on a rifle shack, clean up the trailer, fill propane tanks, check the foodplots. Yeah the weekend is full of work....:dizzy:
