Well guys, today was the last day for me to deer hunt for the 2011-2012 season. Needless to say I didn't get a buck, maybe next contest. It would be nice to have the same members on the team next year.......maybe there could be 4 member teams next contest.

Thanks for the cold weather gear info Zrt. I'm still trying to decide which way to go.

VM, good luck with your hog hunt! I hope you get one.

BB, It was nice having you on our team this year. I hope we end up on the same team next year. You are welcome on the cold weather gear info. I just need to get a good set of gloves/mittens and I should be styling for next season. I go in for my shoulder surgery in the morning so I should be in great shape for next year with a help from our lord!! Sorry you did not get that buck you were trying to get and I know what that is like. But we both got them with the rifle so we have venison. I just had venison yesterday for super and man that was good. Being I only got one deer this year I have to space out my venison meals. I was spoiled last year with 4 of them. We just finished our second bag of venison jerky as well. That is a big hit at our house. I have about 6lbs of jerky meat left so next month I will do up another batch. I will probably not be on here much for the next week so VM go get a nice fat hog!! And be safe hunting them!! Take care guys. When I am back on I will be typing with my left hand only so that will be weird!! Heck using the mouse with the left hand will be even more strange.

Hey guys, I stopped at a trading post today and they had wrangler insulated jeans(Blue & Brown). The guy there said he out sell's those 3 to 1 over long johns and are warmer. I did not see where it said how much thinsulate it had but I will check into it. Man, a pair of thinsulate jeans on top of long johns with bibs on over top should keep us old farts toasty warm even if it is zero out!!

How do you get into one of the teams for the 2014 deer season. Here in Maine it starts late
Sep or early Oct, and last 1 mo. In 2012 I shot a 11 pt buck that dressed at 221. Looking to do
it again this fall. I am definitely an old fart at 71. Whatever team would want me. I had a 200 lb
8 pt behind my treestand last fall but no shot. Think things will improve this year.

I will make a new thread at the end of summer announcing the signups for the 2014-15 contest. It is open to all.
