I haven't deer hunted since 1982.....long story.
But anyway, I am this year, and I can't wait!
I'll be using a long bow and hunting from the ground, on public land (sort of) it's a military base so there are a lot of rules, and forget leaving a pop-up overnight unless you want it to go bye-bye. Regardless, I've done my homework and am very optimistic!

I just found out I might not get to hunt after work as often as I thought due to family commitments/priorities.
So, I'll be doing a lot of "all day on stand" hunts on the weekends, maybe take some vacation time here and there.

I will totally turn this around to my advantage however - always one more way to skin that cat IMO. Does anyone ever get to hunt as often as they want? Nobody I know that's for sure. I'm shooting my bow every spare minute so the "weakest link" won't be the actual shot. That's the one thing I have control over anyway.

Tip 'o the hat to you oldfella! You clearly have the bowhunter mentality. Good luck this fall.

Im less excited about bow season this year then I ever have been! But, its because my wife is pregnant with our second boy, and he's do on September 14th! So I won't get much hunting in this year, but I don't mind considering I'll have another hunting buddy down the road!!!

First "bow season" or "first season hunting" ? Either way are you part of a club? or you hunting private land? Public land?
