Rackstackers is cool with me only other one I thought of was BoneCollectors

Bowtech - now listen man last year your entry was a bit small so step it up a bit this season. I really shoudn't be saying much cause I didn't even enter a deer last year but man we need a buck that is a bit bigger than 09's was.
Plus I donated that sausage kit knowing that it would pay for itself someday.......that time has come.

its kinda cool that I know a couple guys on my team (bowtech and 300rum hunter) and some of us aren't that far away from each other

How about a bit of info from each of team 1 members

I am 36 and have been hunting my entire life. I hunt with rifle 3006 in the past but this year I really hope to get a deer with my 300 ultra mag as it hasn't had a kill since I bought it.
I hunting mostly from tree stands and the occasional ground blind. I will still walk a few old logging roads in the mid day
I don't have a doe tag this year so its a buck or broke
Generally I have great luck late 3rd week. I have shot more deer on the 3 Thursday then any other time during the season

Hey everyone, i'm 33 years old and live to hunt, i most enjoy hunting the Big Woods and looking for the Kings that roam our forests.I had planned on trying to prove to myself i could get a mature buck in a few certain areas and just cant seem to pull myself away from my old hunting grounds..I really want to get a corn field buck by stalking and had said its the only way i'll hunt this fall but after ArcheryNut posted that aerial photo of the area he used to hunt it ruined my idea.That place is so awesome and even though Irving has almost ruined it i still dream of wandering through there and letting out a WarHoop after i drop a mature buck while still hunting that piece of woods.Theres still enough woods there to hunt and probably where i'll be..I now have a 338 win mag so i wont worry about those beech thickets anymore and am shooting 210 gr Nosler Partitions..I had planned on buying or borrowing an open sighted rifle to hunt the cornfields which is still a possibility..I'm looking for a 140" plus deer to go over 200 lb this year ,,Fingers are crossed

Like the name!

I'm 42 and have hunted ever since I could tag along with my dad. I started bowhunting when I was 19 and shot a doe the first year which hooked me forever. I switched back and forth for several years depending on my success or lack of, until I got to the point where I took the plunge and sold all my rifles. I usually took "a deer" every year until 4-5 years ago when I heard about QDMA. Now I pass on young bucks less than 3.5years old and shoot does only when the numbers are too high, which means I've eaten my tag a few times since and have yet to take a deer off our property. I didn't get a doe tag this year so it will be big or bust for me. I would like to have three does shot off the property this year so if one of you has a doe tag and wishes to fill it let me know.
I enjoy all hunting and styles. I have taken every game animal in NB with my bow except a moose, I was drawn once and used the bow even then. I even try waterfowl with the bow some now. The most fun I ever had "hunting" was bowfishing in Pa. I enjoy all ways of hunting and I stillhunt, do some spot and stalk, ground blinds and treestands. Stillhunting is the most rewarding method for me but I love a good spot and stalk situation. My least favorite is sitting in a treestand even if it is the most effective. I usually don't hunt over bait unless I'm trying to kill a doe, preferring to scout out natural funnel points, doe bedding areas, rub or scrape lines, etc. I love hunting during the rut more than at any other time even though I've been most successful the first week of bow season. The second week of November has been good to me

I hunt mostly the home farm now which is not quite 300 acres. I have spent the last 4 years inproving the habitat and if God sees fit I'll spend the next 40 doing the same.
We have a few "shooter" bucks running around this fall so prospects look good at least. Will have a little better idea when I get the camera survey done.
Good luck to you all!

Hey! Fellas.

I'm 39 years old. Been hunting since i've been old enough to carry a rifle. I used to still rifle hunt only. Gave it up 7 years ago and picked up a bow. The rest is history. My first love is Caroline. My second is bow hunting. She made me say that!
I will do my best to harvest a bruiser but if I don't find him and the opportunity presents itself. I will take one for the team!
Just kiddin'. I can't go through winter without my steak & eggs. No matter the size of the headgear, they all taste the same. Good luck! RackStackers...
Might want to get use to bacon and eggs

Hey guys, it's great to be part of Team 1 and that's where we are going to finish!!!

I'm 31 years old and have been hunting with my Dad since I was old enough to walk. I love hunting and I love firearms! I enjoy all types of deer hunting! Typically my morning/afternoon hunts consist of still hunting through the woods and the evenings consist of stand hunting over a food source. I personally have had good luck in the first 2 weeks of the season having takin, in my opinion, 6 respectable bucks (7 point-11point) during these first 2 weeks, The largest field dressing 252lbs. I don't consider myself a horn hunter but I love a trophy as much as the next guy, I hunt for the love of the sport and I enjoy bounty it produces. My weapons of choice are a Remington XHR 30-06 with a Leupold VX-II 3-9x50 for the woods and a Remington BDL 300 Ultra Mag with a Bushnell Elite 6500 4.5-30x50 for the open territory.

Here's to a successful deer season for the RackStackers!!! Let's kick some A$$!

Hey Guys,
Glad to be part of this team. Lets put together a great season and remain number 1. Well here is a short blurb about me. I am 26 years old, like most of you i have been hunting since i can remember seeing over the dashboards of the old fords. I still cherish all those memories and they made me the person i am today. Well I will be hunting mostly 22/24. My family has a cottage in back of Elgin, but i will be traveling to zone 22 a lot as my brother, my wife, and I all have doe tags for 22 and we are meat hunters so who knows. But i have 3 weeks off this year and i think I am gonna put a big effort into taking a big zone 24 mountain buck. I grew up in salisbury(well really up the grub road so outside salisbury) but now live in Oromocto as i work for the military. But i always come home to do my hunting Albert County boy at heart and always will be.

Bowtech i think i would like to talk to you about bringing my wife down and taking a doe off your land for ya. It will be her first time shooting a deer and i think she is excited about the fact she may actually get a chance this year. We could sit and watch a field or something as i am buying a new Ameristep ground blind for this season. Let me know what you think or we can talk about it some night.

nbdeerhunter --- you may know my father he works at Alf's Sharpening in salisbury.

300RUM --- I know your hunting areas pretty well there also hunted those fields around intervale through petty a lot.

I think a few of us could meet up and do some hunting this fall i think it would be a good time...go for a coffee make a plan and head out...let me kno what you think.

Cheers,
Russ

Russ, sounds like a good idea getting together sometime for coffee or something. I may know you, what's your name? My name is Jaret Lewis. NBDeerHunter doesn't live to far from me, I sure we could get together sometime during or maybe before the season and talk over coffee if you're up this way.

Getting together for a coffee sounds good to me just to meet everyone. I'd be more than happy to have you both come down for a hunt or two or more and help get your wife a doe.

Here is a pic of about 1/2 our property which shows quite a bit of the fields to give you an idea of the area.

Bowtech my wife also has a doe tag, but normally finding a doe in my hunting area isn't too hard but if for some reason we don't and you still need to harvest a doe I could bring her down. Good excuse to meet you.

hey guys lets setup something before the season starts and shoot the breeze.

Jaret and I know each other and we have a decent idea of where each other hunts. Jaret has some good locations
I lost 1 of my hot spots last year due to the land owner protesting Sunday hunting and posting everything red instead of yellow but thats ok cause I still have my 1 hotspot that rarely fails and its not far from home which is a huge benefit.

Jaret I am hoping to get my ultra mag its first kill this fall. Finally convinced myself to carry it instead of the 3006.

I know Alf and his son Todd but can't place any of his employees...probably if I seen him it would click together

An albert county buck is always a special one. My dad and grandfather used to hunt back there all the time and have some good bucks to show for it and my dad has a 17 pt hanging on his wall from years ago that dressed about 265. he still talks about that deer all the time. They needed a tractor to get it out of the valley they were in.
