    This is good.
    Here you can hardly take a shot that far, too much scrub brush.

    I worry about the 2 top pins only.

    Good job!

    Back in my bow-hunting days, I never did sharpen broad-heads. I would have good broad-heads used exclusively for deer hunting and broadheads used for target practice only. Same kind on same Easton XX75 shafts.

    I was very good in the back yard and up in my tree stand in the back yard but out in the woods, well, that was a different story altogether.

    You may remember my post saying how lousy I was when the actual target was a deer! Good for the deer too. He got to live and so did I.

    If guns kill people do pencils make spelling mistakes?

    Good Gravy. We have two black bears around the hunting cabin that are smaller than some of those.

    That is a plague.

    I am calibrated out to 50, but I only shoot beyond 35 with the old bow when I am shooting at turkey or vermin.

    I still shoot XX75's for my traditional bows.

    I do similar on broadheads. I have hunting only versions of arrow/broadhead combos. However, I shoot Muzzy and they come with practice broadheads that are completely dull.

    Tomorrow I have the opportunity to take the kids out on a deer hunt with me as guide.

    Washing clothes. Final weapons prep. A little shooting practice for fine tuning. Check the gear and the batteries.

    I struggle to describe my joy in this. It is at least magnificent.

    Some of the best days of my life involved bow hunting and the preparedness that you describe.


    After my divorce in 1987, I stored my bows and all related equipment in my brothers attic while I relocated to Florida and lived in a much smaller place. Right after that he got the bug up his ass when his wife inherited all that money. He didn't want anything to do with me, dad nor mom. He refused any and all contact with us.

    My Darton's and all my gear could still be up in the attic, I don't know. He gave that house to his oldest daughter and moved. Even she refuses to speak to the family because of my brothers indoctrination of "Uncle Rickity bad" rhetoric.

    That's okay. Losing what we had growing up being close, was all wiped out the minute they got their millions from his wife's inheritance.

    I haven't seen or spoken to him since dad died in early 2000.

    Money makes a lot of people go totally stupid. Sorry.

    Today's trip to the woods with the kids went pretty well. We all got scent washed, camo'ed up, gear, water and weapons and made it to the stand only 20 minutes late. Good for 2 kids on the first hunt of the season.

    We sat for an hour+, but nothing with fur walked by.

    The tiny songbirds came to visit and entertain us.

    That is quality time with the kids.
