For you hunters 55 and older

I'll be 67 and still hunting this year and many more. I have friends who hunted well into their 80's and the older we get - the better hunters we become. For instance my first time out last year I let 4 does walk during the first day of black powder season, then I hunted opening day rifle season and shot a large buck 13 minutes after leaving the hunting camp in the morning. Don't worry because I am writing a book on how to become an expert hunter and I will share all of my knowledge with you.

I'm thinking this Saturday is a good morning to do this, the earlier the better to beat the crowd. Plus the weather / temps aren't going to be worth doing much else that early in the morning.
I can’t commit until maybe 2/23. Gone to lake this weekend and having shoulder surgery on 2/13.

I may still be heavily sedated on 2/23 but you could come give me a ride. 😵

Are any of you other guys gonna jine in?? They got sho nuff good country breakfast.

Good luck and wishes for a quick recovery from the surgery.

Rotator cuff repair is one of the things I’m having on 2/13. I’m hoping I would be up to eating out 10 days later.

Remind me closer to the 23rd. I'm old, I can't remember that far out. :bounce:

Hope your goes very well.We ain't getting any younger and need all the extra days we can get.
If it is orthoscopic recovery is 2-3 weeks. If they split your shoulder like gutting a deer it is 3-6 months.

I’m staring 55 in the face so I’m bout to join the club. I still get around pretty good considering.

I should be able to see a few more sunrises above 3000’ before I am relegated to the flat lands.

old fella told me and a friend at Cohutta that he used to hunt there more before he retired to South Georgia! We didn’t understand at the time but do 100% now!

We have some mghty fine sunrises and sunsets here in the flatwoods and swamps too. And a lot more game. Come on down. sunrise3.jpg sundown3.jpg
 
Thanks Nic. As I get older I appreciate a good pic. Relaxing to look at on a rainy day. I wish I'd carried a camera more when I was younger. The few pics from way back, mean a lot.
