I haven't really ever paid attention to the deer contest till this yr. What kinda scores usually win? I hunt public in lower peninsula. I am pretty much a gimme for 2 deer with archery equipment. Most yrs I kill 2 bucks but am looking for a nice one this yr so might eat one buck tag. I hunt from opening day till the last day so I wont disappear.

Team with the most deer killed with a nice buck or two added in for good measure. Archery tackle helps.......thread participation is key also.

I thought I was a gimme for two deer last year as in most years past and botched a chip shot on a nice buck and shot a doe that ran to the neighbors property where no access is granted and it took the wind out of my sail so just I passed numerous deer encounters. Can't wait for the new season to begin.

The best thing for the contest, IMO, is kill a early doe quick in the EAS or first week of October. Then go into Buck mode. If nothing pans out take a late season doe.

I hunt all of deer season also.

We r in it to win it this year RMH so u better keep the sails up. I think we got a good chance at it if we all put in a solid effort n help each other out with tips n tactics.

Checking in. Looks like we have a solid team. I'll be hunting mostly private land in Jackson county this year, but will possibly put some time into public land in the NW13. Plan is to put some meat in the freezer during EAS then won't be back in deer mode until around Halloween for a solid month of buck hunting.

I'll assume that you were incarcerated.:rolleyes:

The champs last year won with 135 pts.
If every team member shoots 2 does with their bows, that's 112 points. If 3 of those are 8 points, you eclipse their score.

Peace of cake for our new team!!!

I would like to be the first to thank you BIG T for picking us 8 winners!!! I was wondering if Lobrass was gunna make the cut, although I am a little disappointed he did not make it, I realize we have a better team for it.

Putting together a winning team is no easy task we know!!!

All I can say is that my wishes were answered in that I was not thrust onto your team of LOSERS!!!!(except Hemry, of course)

You guys are going down just like your sails last year!!

That's definitely not victory you're smelling, that's Defeat!

I'll gladly take LoBrass but Hemry does have a stellar buck on his cam. If he harvests that, you guys will have some good points.
Yup, stinks over here.

Hemry has yet to kill one of his trail cam monsters. Just sayin'!!
