Hey guys, if you would, please post your name and a general idea of what part(s) of the state you hunt. I will make a post with all of our names in this thread.

I mostly hunt at my home outside of St. Clair, but will be hunting for a week on state land near Gladwin, and hope to hunt in the NW13 near our cottage outside of Traverse City now that I am retired!

Good Luck this year, and most importantly be SAFE!

Kevin

Hello men. I am Brady and live in Lenawee county. Most of my hunting is done on state land in Oscoda and Crawford counties but I also hunt around home in Monroe county. I will be hunting around home until the 4th of November when I go up north till the 17th. Back up after Thanksgiving and also bobcat trapping season.

Compound/Longbow/shotgun/rifle/muzzleloader I use 'em all. Heading to Newfoundland for moose around bow opener and then Wyoming for Mule deer a week later. A very busy fall but should be a good time.

I’m Trevor and I live in Saginaw county. I have 5 places to hunt around home and also hunt some state land in between. Plan on going up to Crystal Falls for deer camp for the first week of gun.
Also doing a weeklong bow trip to Missouri 9/12-9/19. Looking forward to a good season.

What's up guys! My name is Louis. I like long walks in the woods and killing stuff for the smoker, LOL!

I hunt two small farms in the thumb. First farm is 40 acres by Ruth and the 2nd farm is 20 acres outside Port Sanilac. 40 acre farm is mostly ag field with some cedar woods / creak bottom through it. The 2nd 20 acre farm is all CRP fields / bedding. I need to hit this farm when the conditions are right so I stick and move out of this piece. I was up last week finalizing stands, pop ups etc.... so thats all ready to go. I really dont start hunting until the 3rd week of October when it starts to cool off. I process my own deer and like to not be in a rat race to get it done with the heat. Im usually good for a buck and doe every year as I try and shoot 3-4 for the freezer. I have Nov 6-26th off this year so looking forward to grocery shopping again!

Hey guys my names Steve.

When near my home I either hunt either public land in Muskegon/Newaygo county or Private property in Ottawa. I also go to Manistee County to hunt family property, which is where I will be this weekend for the youth hunt. Hopefully will have some pictures to share next week after checking all the cards this weekend.

In late November I will also participate in a management hunt in Ottawa County.

Hey guys. My name is Sam....but I am not 22 years old anymore, I'm 40!

I live in Traverse City and I have two leases here, one is 40 acres and one is 150. The 150 acres is new to me this year up in Antrim. The 40 is West of Traverse and I have had it a few years. I also hunt a big club type property in Pesque Isle county, that is just under 2000 acres, these days I mostly only rifle hunt there. Additionally I have a 600 acre lease in Southern Ohio. All of these I share with at least 1 other person. I hunt hard when I can, and actually hunt a fair amount on public land near home. I am mostly a mobil hunter these days, have saddles but don't really get into them.

Most years I kill at least two or three deer, usually at least one buck. Whitetail hunting is my passion, of all the things I do deer hunting is my #1, aside from family and God. I am not nearly as great a hunter as some guys here, but I do love it.

So are we happy with the team name, or do we want to change it?
I'm Joe, and do most of my hunting up on State land in the NeLP. I will be with a friend on a farm in Sanilac County for the EAS season as well! I just got back from a long weekend at the cabin. Did some scouting, and am excited for the opener! I have my morning and afternoon spots picked out!

Glad to see we are all checked in!

Reads like we have a good team with a lot of good habitat to hunt.

I hope to hunt next weekend behind the house for a doe. The forcast is for temps in the 80's, so I will play it by ear...not going out there to be mosquito food!

These does show up just about every morning to do some browsing on the plot. I had a much better plot last year, I think the heat this year fried it...I did put some more seed down last night just before the rain, so I'm hoping it really takes off.

Anyone besides Craves and I hunting the early antlerless?
Out of curiosity; who all killed a doe last year? I think doe kill drives this contest.

I only killed a doe last year. Shot her behind the house with my Hoyt.

Doe killing definitely makes a big difference in this contest...and a few nice bucks!:cool:
