I wish I was close to a range as I love to shoot. I have to drive 25 miles to shoot so I need to preplan. Let's see, I get 18 miles a gallon @ $4.05/gal =$11.22 total cost per round trip.
I have 4 Friday's scheduled off in Oct to bowhunt. My routine is to hunt until 11:00AM in my morning spots then go to the gun range midday to shoot for a few hours then hit my afternoon spot for the balance of the day. The shooting pit is only 4 miles from my core hunting spots. It's funny how the price of a gallon of gas changes one's behavior.
EXACTLY WHAT I WAS THINKING
Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky
