Sorry for the loss of your friend, Pac. Great story and I look forward to seeing it and maybe shooting it a couple times if you wouldn't mind.

You will have to be verry carefull on the lake there will be poberrly 60 boats leave out crystal springs ramp the bass tournament is a big bass only event not total weight in ,so you can launch any where on the lake you want,and weight  in at mountain harbour ramp,there will be hourly weigh ins could be as many as 400 boats,just have to travel with lights on in darkness...I will hunt up hy 70 n. of crystal there is a swath 20 miles wide by 30 miles long that you can hunt north and south of crystal springs (national forest)and plenty of corps land  around lake 1200 miles of shoreline i could never walk it all ...on the north side one of my buddies killed a 350 lb hog plus watch out for bears...there is plenty of deer down by the dam...I used to walk that to keep my weight down...very much a aplendor in our back yard ..see you all at crystal springs for A.R.R.O.W. 2014

If you have a digital camera bring it.  Snap a few pics of whatever catches your eye.  After the hunt I usually take all the pics and come up with a slide show.

Did you get your pack to weigh less than 50# this year?  Good luck and have fun.

Sitting at 50.2 lbs.  Still more than I wanted but 6 lbs less than last trip.  Not as young as I used to be.

Just got a few broad heads put together.  Wild turkey and crow fletching.  Looks pretty cool.  I am ready.  More than a little ticked that the army moved drill to opening weekend, but at least ARROW is still on.  

With any luck, I'll have a couple extra bows shooting to bring down by then.  They may not be finished but hopefully have some shots through them.

I am hoping to be there and look forward to meeting some new friends. Will try to bring Chowder the Wunder Dawg as he knows the campground pretty well after last year.

Quachita is always a great time.

I just talked to Pac and his Dad is better and going to be released from the hospital today.
He wanted me to let everyone know he will still be at Crystal Springs on Oct. 8th.

Glad to here your Dad is ok Pac..

Been out hunting purity much every day. Learned a lot about using my Climber. You can practice all you want but actual use in the field will tell you what you need to do.

Cant wait until the 8th

I'm gonna blow out of here right after school Thursday.  Call it five hours and change over there.  Round 9ish to the campground I hope.

Got everything ready.  Will be taking off in the morning (Weds).  I haven't been able to hunt yet due to the sudden trip back to NC to be with my Dad.  He had a heart attack and it was touch and go the first day home.  Things are looking up now though.

I am so ready for this hunt.

Sweeney I doubt if we will be asleep but if we are feel free to come right on into my site if you would like.  Your Spartan style camping will not be any problem.  We will save a couple of trees for you.

Heh heh... Yeah.  I've gotten it parred down even more now.  A few more years and I'll have my earthly possessions whittled down to a pickup load.  That's the goal.  

Same spot as usual I assume?
