    I have drawn it back, several times.
    A couple years back, I had two of my bows break a string in one season. Each of them opened up my left wrist. One was just a shallow cut and a big bruise. The other nearly had me go to the hospital before I could get the bleeding stopped.

    Nothing to mess with.

    Oh, I know. I went in our Pawn shop about 7 years ago, picked up a 3hundred $ bow, just had to draw it back. It was one of those elliptical cams with a deceptively smooth let off. Like maybe 70%

    Anyhow, I drew with 2 fingers and when I went to let it back down, it got away from me a dry fired. I was not injured but a cam broke. I felt like such an idiot.

    I had no way to pay for it, at the time. So the owner says, "tell you what, If you cut the grass and clean the property on the weekend, I will pay you 10$ hourly until you pay it off, then I will pay you cash.

    Anyhow, I ended up being senior 'employee' and worked there for 5 years before my other half took very ill.
    Yep, I'd wrap that in bacon! KEEP AMERICA GREAT, TRUMP 2020

    Time to get much more serious.

    I have been watching the deer, they are starting into their fall habits, with the usual crazy changes thrown in.

    Funny how every year, the time to put out the game cameras, and prep sneaks up on me.

    I cleaned/prepped the small caliber weapons tonight. We had a family 22 shoot this last weekend, tons of fun with about half of a 500 round pack shot out. Now we need some early squirrel hunting to sharpen the senses.

    Archery practice not coming along as easily as my younger years. I need to double down on my efforts.

    Great practice with 243 bolt gun and the muzzleloader this afternoon. One of the kids figured out that shooting is fun.

    While expensive, shooting the 243 is a total hoot.

    On the archery front, I have the old compound dialed in. I'm almost ready.

    My ex father in law got me started hunting with him back in about 1972 or 73 out in a squirrel lot way out in extreme NW Ohio near Pioneer.

    I had a Marlin .22 autoloader that maybe cost me $60 new. I put on a cheap scope and I was ready. The squirrel lot was about a 5 acre wooded lot surrounded by the usual corn/soybean/sugar beet fields. The fox squirrels were huge but were elusive in the heavily wooded lot. One time I got three of them that were in a tree right over my head. The debris was falling on me and all around me from their antics.

    I had to shoot pretty much straight up to get them. My best squirrel day ever! 3 large fox squirrels is a goof haul for a newb. Was not long after that when I purchased my Ruger 1022 and a decent low power scope.

    My father in law was a great mentor and sportsman. I cherish our times we had together in the woods. He and I would eventually camp in Michigan and in Pennsylvania hunting whitetails.

    His son wanted nothing to do with guns nor hunting. He was different for sure. But that is okay because I am the one that benefited from the mentoring and teachings of a true sportsman.

    Finally got the 20 year old Mathews shooting accurately with both field points and practice broadheads at both 20 and 35 yards.

    This is good.
