Could have put a small racked 8pt down, I wouldn’t have shot him with a bow so gun season is no different pretty slow. I did hear a lot of shooting on Friday.

In my neck of the woods, Woodford, I had one yearling doe within 7 feet when I sat on the ground Saturday evening. That was it, other than that excitement it was super slow. I am glad I enjoy tag soup because I do not see anything changing second season or bow season.

I practiced involuntary self restraint.  Drove to the hunting area at Zero dark 30, 5 degrees.  Twisted knee on a hedge ball.  Down for the count, with ruptured quadriceps tendons.  Was at the emergency room slightly after shooting time.  Surgery at 1 PM and on my way home from the hospital before the close of LST.  Obviously, saw none, shot same.

The mass shown breaking into the stores and looting in Ferguson reminds me of the average deer hunter, taking theirs with no regard for the owners of the businesses, or the future of their community.  The guy that started the fire and ran away reminds me of Marc Miller. The lady that grabbed the gallon of milk and put the fire out is much like most on this site who care about their community and future. Everyone grab a gallon of milk and put these fires out one at a time.

  Hey at the age of 73, I was able to hunt all 3 days with family and friends, every thing after that was a bonus.

God bless you joecarver. I hope you have many more good years to hunt. My dad got me into deer hunting in 1978. November of 2012 we sat together in a ground blind I made just for him. He had terminal cancer and told me sitting there , this would be his last hunt and it was. The part that got me most was not the fact he knew he was dying and suffering in terrible pain. It was he felt he was letting me down by telling me that it was his last hunt. The last two years I have gone out half heartedly and try and make a hunt for him. Its just not the same. I have killed two of my best bucks to this date one with shotgun , one with bow. I know he had a hand in it, at least that is what I wish to think.
