Fellow Team 2 members I suggest we cut to the chase and name ourselves " The Winners"

TEAM:
LimitOrNothing
grey ghost
takin' time
B^K
manny
good old boy

But I did like Russ 14s prediction of Team 2 surprising everyone with some REAL SMASHERS

I hunt mostly zone 24 and am looking for the NB Grand Slam this year Moose, Bear, and Deer
I hunt with a Browning BLR 308 tree stands,still hunts and waiting on traffic areas.
Also hunting deer this year with my nephew this year, his first tag and my Dad, his first deer licence in 20 years.
Looking forward to an awesome season.

Any team members going to the EXPO in Sussex??

Fellow team 2 members,

I will be hunting zone 24 and 21 evenly. Can't wait till the season starts. I hope my savage .300 win mag will have the chance to strike again. I'm pumped up already.

Everyone on this team must be getting set for the season. Apples are falling and stands are up I'm excited for the bow opener!

I'm OK with "The Real Smashers"
If it's alright with the team I'll post it @supper time.
If you guys have a better one, have @ it.

Saw a nice 6 pt Wed. evening not what I want but he would be a great 1st deer for my nephew.

Well after two days I have no deer sightings to report. I have seen 6 bears the past 2 nights. Not exactly thrilled about it, but it does liven up the night a bit when one does go strolling by..
Switching it up tomorrow AM...Sitting in the ground blind watching the apple pile.

That's great, sounds like you don't have a problem keeping your eyes open.
I've got 2 stands up, 1 is on a super deer spot I found while scouting for moose. The walk in wasn't worth it for a moose but deer sign was unreal.
I put a stand up Thursday evening,lots of time after tagging out in the morning and still had the week off.
I also ordered a new climbing stand, I've got a great spot for that, I was out this afternoon and trimmed out a couple shooting lanes.

First of all I want to say that I have always had my best luck hunting in the rain. I have been watching 4 doe's at my stand for 2 weeks now and had pictures of this buck on my trail cam but only at night. Yesterday around 3:30 I decided to head out to the treestand. On the way there I noticed a large set of tracks along with some doe tracks that had crossed my road. They were not filled with water yet and since it was raining I new the tracks were fresh. I lathered 2 scent wicks with tinks 69 and hoped for the best. around 4:45 two doe's were in my field. As I was watching them I heard some splashing to my left and sure enough there was Mr. buck running up the trail. He took me by surprise because he was going at a pretty good pace nose to the ground. The thought went throgh my mind that he wasn't going to stop and that he would chase the doe's away. I new he ment business so I didn't waste anytime getting my rifle in position. The buck paused for a few brief seconds, and I placed a shot down through the engine room, from 30 yds with my .300 win mag removing most of his heart. He took off running toward the doe's, circled back and dropped in the spot i had shot him. He fell within feet of where the 9 pointer I got last season fell.
I was always a bit skeptical of scents and lures but after seeing the results of tink's 69 this year and last I believe it gave me an edge on both bucks. You don't believe it until you see it but when he came in quickly, head down, following the tinks trail I left him, I was amazed. My wife and son deserve most of the credit on this one because of there help picking apples , building stands, and seeding my clover. I am very thankfull for this deer and he gave me a good run since I have over 40 hours trying to get my chance at him this season. He is a nice 10 pointer and hopefully good in the freezer to.
That's what I like about hunting. Sometimes the spots that are often overlooked hold the best and most deer. You never know when that big guy may appear. He is an Albert county buck and field dressed in at 200 pounds.
