Finally got into the attic today

Threw down all my hunting clothes to begin the prehunt cleaning ritual. Takes severak hours to wash/descent and hang to dry, then plastic bags sprayed wih scent elinator and a few crushed pine neddles branches thrown in. Then everthing is stored in plastic tubs.

makes you almost tingly doesn't it.

I goofed up this evening. After working on these deer and making a 60 yard move with my stand to get in bow range. then working all the time and not being able to hunt till last fri evening, yesterday and then today. That big old doe made an appearence at 6:25pm. the cover is heavy and the light was low, and I didn't see the little tree that sent my arrow into a stone wall. All I had to do is wait for 5 more yards and it was more open. but then she would have been maybe a little to close. 20 yards and I dropped the ball. see what you have to look forward to? isn't it great?

for shame just working the bow now

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
