    Just wondering if anyone has been out bow hunting yet and if you've had any luck?

    I don't know if I'll make through this season with my sanity intact. It will be the first bow season since 1975 that I haven't hunted. I was sitting in front of the TV last night playing with my bows and antique arrows, wishing I was in the woods. I'll do my bow hunting through you guys this year, so I hope you all whack um and stack um. Good luck people.:sad2:

    I sure appreciate the offer. That's outstanding. I've always loved to see new areas. It's the "game" I miss the most. I've always spent much more time scouting than hunting. Like today; it's raining hard and I've always loved to go to the woods and sneak up on deer in the rain. They don't expect us to be there in the rain so I've been able to get real close to them in the rain. That's why I'm giving up bow hunting. To me, it's more about putting the time, and miles, into the hunt and seeing how close I can get. It was great when I lived real close to where I hunt. I would scout all summer long so when the season opened, getting a deer wasn't a matter of luck, it was knowing that a deer would be there, and making a good close shot.

    I can still get all the meat I need at my best friend's farm, and drive right up to the stands in most cases. I do that with a gun if there is still room in the freezer after bow season. However, if I can't get a bow kill fairly and do the homework, I'd rather not stick one just because it was unfortunate enough to walk out in front of me. I've always done my bow hunting in the thickest, most inhospitable places I can find. It's soooo much more satisfying than sitting at the edge of a field waiting for them to come out. I'd love to come down and take some pictures and meet another BOC brother, though. Maybe I can find time to make it happen. Once again, thank you very much for the offer!

    You are always welcome at my place, if you want to come and bring a camera that would be great! I take a lot more shots with a camrea than bow or gun. I just love being out there:big_smile:
