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.

Getting excited myself. July 4th is the line in the sand for me. After then, it is all down hill to opening morning for me. Many thing to get ready.
Christmas comes in September.

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!!!
