good deal on making the safe decision.sounds to me like your hooked for life .thats great ,i love to hear the excitement in a newly hooked hunter.seems like a good camp ya went to .I hope ya get out more than once a year.ya dont always have to pay to go hunting find some public land nearby and learn the lay of it

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

Yeah, what Topher's dad said was that its better that I have that "I shouldve shot it!" situation rather than having shot it and wishing that I hadnt.

I was very clear with myself when I went out that if I shot anything it was going to be a single bullet and that the deer would be dead in a matter of minutes. I was going to be very sure of my shots, not going out with an M60 and doing some spray and pray.

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
-John Stewart Mill
