where I hunt a good , good buck is anything over 100. That is what I am aiming for. do what I can.

I can make up the difference I think. There are a few absolute jaw droppers running the farms I hunt.


I got the whole picture thing....finally. Takes a big man to admit defeat, and call in the wife to figure it out. She made it look so easy I feel even dumber than I did before:eek: :eek:

Those are some nice looking bucks there NY.

I lived in a small town right on the Miss river called McGregor. Just got relocated to the Quad Cities area for my wifes career. All my hunting is done up there in Allamakee co.
Good to have a few fellow Iwegians on the team. Good luck to you, hope you kill a booner.

As far as names, I like

Team Pass Through
NY's suggestion Team DBL LUNG
Team Booners BWare
Or my sons suggestion.....TEAM-O SUPREME-O (he is watching it as we speek)
Or rather than "lock n' Load" how about Team Nock n' load

Team Widowmakers
Team Nanny Whackers
Team Own The Bone
why dont the 7 of us that have checked in just vote?

Out of all the names, pick your 2 favorites. We can narrow it down fronm there.

I like
1. Booners B-Ware
2. Rack Attack

There were others I also liked, but if you have checked into the other teams suggestions, a few of the ones we were throwing around, are also being thrown around by them. The 2 above I have not seen mentioned except by us
While we wait for the others to chime in on a name

Lets get to know eachother.

My name is Kolin Korsi and I live in NE Iowa. I hunt in the #1 and #2 P/Y and B/C producing counties in the entire state. I have about 2200 acres that I'm the only bowhunter on, and it is only hunted by the farmer and his son during the gun season. Man, its good to have the right friends! I have hunted with a bow for 19 of my 31 years. I have hunted here since moving over from Wisconsin 8 years ago. Since then I have shot 6 bucks over 150" with my bow. Last year I jumped an honest to goodness 190+ buck that I had been hunting all fall. He went underground, so I ended up killing a decent 136" 8 point very late in the season. Good news is the landowner has seen 2 monsters this summer, and from the description of the rack one is definitely "mine"
I have him all but patterned, and have 12 stands to hunt from in his core area. So if he scores 190(I think he will go closer to 200)+ the 50 points for a doe, I could POTENTIALLY score us 240 points:eek: :eek:

Good luck to all of my teammates, but most importantly, lets keep it safe.

Now, let the butt kickin' begin!!:wink: :wink:

Team 6- We need to contact everyone, and make some time limit on them checking in. If they don't check in by 2-3 weeks probably not going to particapate. We could let one of the hunters on the waiting list get in. What do ya'll think?

I have to agree here, we heed to set up some time limit for checking in. Do you guys think that if the rest of our team has not checked in by Sunday, August 20th at 11:59 pm, they should be replaced by others that are on a waiting list?

As far as me being "team captain", I would be honored. I will need a replacement though for the 3 weeks I'm out west elk hunting. Will be gone from Sept 2nd- 20th, so if someone would do whatever respondsibilities that come along with the captain title, I;d appreciate it very much.

What do you guys think about the checkin deadline?

Thanks for doing the PM'ing. I hope all of our originals can make it before the deadline. Otherwise we will have to find a few replacements from the waiting list. Did you guys notice that there may become another couple teams, check out the thread under league play. I hope that there still are a few on the waiting list by the time we would need them.

When does everyones seasons start? Mine doesn't get going until Oct 1st. I should have us 50 points opening morning as I have to shoot a doe to get the buck tag I earned last year by shooting 6 does out of a State park / city land up by me. I actually have 3 buck tags for archery season this year in Iowa. I have my statewide paid license, the license for inside Pikes Peak state park, and another tag for inside city limits. I will have the season of my life if I can put down 3 bucks for the wall this year. Good luck to all!!!!!

I guess we are team 6---- Booners B-Ware

I'll post another thread stating our name, so another team doesn't steal it just to spite us. We will win this thing if we all give it an honest try, and most importantly.....EACH KILL A DOE. That is 750 points, then all we have to do is EACH kill any buck(a spike or larger scores 50 points) which would bring our total to 1500 points, more than last years winners. Obviously some of us will kill larger deer, which will only raise our score that much more. Let have fun, and make sure we kick some butt!:darkbeer: :darkbeer: :darkbeer:

For simplicity sake, lets keep this thread as the one we are responding to. Easier to keep up with one versus keeping up to multiple threads.

Just some motivation to get your appitites whetted. I hope you guys can all crack one of these!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SW CO. just across the mountain from NM

I head to SW Colorado every Sept. If you cross over the top of the mountain, you are in NM. We have the overall lease on about 2000 acres for the entire bow season. The 2000 we lease adjoins about 800 acres of BLM ground that is landlocked by private. On the other side of the BLM, is another ranch that is about 4500 acres if momory serves me correctly. We divide the season into three, 10 day hunts. This season has 3 hunters per season. We all have a ton of shot opportunities, last year we went 100% on getting a shot. Only a handful of us brought home a elk. I hunted my butt off last year, passed a bunch of bulls and cows(I saw a giant on day 3, and was going for him)

Last evening we were there, I had him, a 360 class 6x6 or 6x7 at about 30 yards in the heavy brush. He had a very distinctive bugle that I could tell from anywhere. He had his herd of cows in an old logging slash that had grown up really thick. I could see bits and pieces of him, and every once in awhile he would let out a scream that would give a guy goosebumbs. I had stalked through an entire herd of cows figuring I had nothing to lose this late in the hunt, and was in range, just needed him to give me any kind of decent shot. He began to gather up his herd of cows, and head the other direction, so I threw out all I had. I got out my bugle and screamed the biggest, baddest bugle I could muster right in his face from about 30 yards away. I raked a tree with a branch and caused a big commotion. He either was not a fighter, or just didnt care about the herd of cows this early in the season (sept 6th). He just walked the other way, and went totally silent, never to be seen again. I was SO frustrated that about a 1/2 hour later, still in the same spot, a satelite bull came into 4 yards and got shot. Not a big bull like the man I was after, but better than heading home with a $500 piece of paper in my pocket.
No one shot any bulls this big during the rifle season there, and the other ranch had no hunters, so I think he is still alive. That is the reason we are heading out later this year, to get them b4 they have huge herds of cows, but when they are trying to gather them. If I hear that bugle this year, GAME ON BABY!!

My digital camera got messed up and erased all of the pictures of my bull, but here are a few pictures I managed to recover of the rest of the group. I have more if you want to see them

Good to have you aboard also. I like the team 6 in 06 idea. Now we just have to make sure that our "destiny" comes true. :darkbeer:

SCBowman, glad to have you aboard!!!
