Lake Ouachita Crystal Springs campground. 10-12 Oct.

The 2nd week in Oct is 10th & 11th.  The 12th is a holiday.  It will offer an extra morning & possible evening hunt for some if they would like to take advantage.  

I imagine I will show up on the 7th. I plan to hunt as long as someone else wants to hunt.  

If you are new to ARROW just look for the truck camper on a gray dodge diesel.  That's mine.  You are welcome to camp anywhere but we try to stay fairly close together so we don't have to walk as far for the nightly bull session.

If we want a slide show please bring a camera & take pics.  I generally have them emailed to me & I make the show from what I receive.

So who is planning to attend this year?

I went to the VA complaining about my bow arm shoulder.  It has been bugging me for a few years now.  Got diagnosed with tendinitis in my shoulder.  They have me doing physical therapy so hopefully I can shoot my bow soon.  For now the PT person said no bow shooting yet.  

I hope I am cleared to shoot before ARROW time.  Maybe a month's worth of PT will do the trick.

All you need to shoot is once. Kill the deer and be done with it.    :saywhat:

Holy cow... Finally got my login fixed.  Haven't been on in several months.  I'm planning to be there.  Dunno how quickly and how long I can get away but I'll try to get down there.

Has anyone peed on the corner for that little choke point on the peninsula west of the marina yet?  I'm thinking I'll bring either the boat or canoe this year and hunt it some.  Maybe a little one north of the area too.  I don't want to step on anyone's toes if they've already been hatching a plan though.  There's plenty of room down there so no point in hunting on top of each other.

I may well just hunt all day Saturday.  It's not like the Hog game will be worth trying to listen to...

Got the camper on the truck & my meals planned out.  Been shooting a little every day but can only get in about a dozen shots before I have to quit.  I haven't been hunting yet so I still have to get all my stuff together.

I've had deer all around me so far, including three or four nice bucks.  We're already covered up with scrapes and seeing lots of chasing up here.  Seems early but I guess it's really not so much.  Fall always sneaks up on me.

Well, I've got fresh fluids in the ArKansas Traveler (10 miles per gallon of everything: gas, oil, coolant, brake fluid, power steering...), got it mostly packed except for perishables, and am about ready to bail from work after lunch tomorrow.  

Trying to choose what bows to bring is a Schindler's List sort of affair, but I think I got it pared down to three or four.

Make that five bows.  I keep my door framed in longbows and as I left this morning I just sort of involuntarily grabbed the 74" ERC.  I have no plans to use it but it looked sad being left behind.
