    we start the second week in september here in new jersey, i cant wait! this will be my first season bowhunting and i cant wait. i hunt in a privite club which is awesome! my father has shot 2 bucks in the 125 bone and coccket scoring sytem and another 8 pointer that is very nice but nowhere close to the other 2 bucks. my second cosine shot a very nice one also all in the last 5 years so the genetics are there, he have a law that says you have to shot a doe before any buck in every season and your doe doesnt roll over to the next season which has decresed the doe population greatly. ill keep you informed how i do this year.

    sounds good to me, yea i like hunting with shotguns and rifles when they come around but by that time im training hard for wrestling season. plus school and working as much as i can so i got money when i cant work during wrestling season. wrestling for one of the top schools isnt easy but we dont stay near the top by slacking off. so im hopeing i have some more time to hunt during bow season.
