Hunting season
« on: September 17, 2014, 06:37:00 AM »
Just wanted to wish all brothers and sisters of the bow to have a great and safe season this year. Mast is looking good and if hunting from trees lets remeber safety first. Best to all.

Oh, is it hunting season already??? Well, hot dang!  

Jennifer has to work all day Saturday, and I work in the morning, so... hopefully, I'll be in the woods by early noon(ish).

Be safe all!

Safety is no accident....    :knothead:

Got up this morning... drove towards my chosen hunting site, and then remembered... you have to have your license with you (assuming you get a deer , and want to move it legally).  

Ughhhhhhhhhh!!   Ok, back to the house... finally found the license (it was in the last place I looked), and back out the door.

In short, no deer; however, three turkeys came down from their roost (to me, it always sounds like a helicopter is landing), and two LOUD squirrels.

Yup, welcome to hunting season!!  

P.S.  This is the first year I've used the Thermacell insect repellant thing.  OUTSTANDING!!   No more spray for me!

Deer 1,Tom 0. Contributed a Zwickey to the tree gods when I missed a doe due to limited focus, did not see a sapling until it nose dived my arrow. Better a clean miss than a sloppy hit. Will be ground pounding this year due to knee issues-exciting as all get out when they're inside 20 yards and eye to eye, forgot how much fun it is.
 Good luck to all this fall.
