What would you do?

Post by greenmountain » Sat Nov 28, 2015 7:17 am

I have an unused archery tag and late bow season coincides with muzzle loader season. I like bot but archery allows me either sex while muzzle loader is bucks only. I like meat but I am fine with an empty game bag. What would you do?

I use popup ground blinds. Depending on state regulations You could carry both a ML and a bow.

In Vermont where I live you can not hunt with a bow and be in possession of a firearm at the same time. There is an exception you can carry a hand gun for personal protection but may not use it for taking game. Thank you for the suggestion though.

I got out my vest and gave my broadheads a quick touch up. I am going bow hunting in the morning.

I did not score this week end. I did spend a few hours in the woods. Tonight I got together with my hunting partners and hunted near each other. We didn't get deer but we had a good hunt. In my book tat is a successful hunt.

I didn't make meat this bow season. I did have a very successful hunt. I watched a fisher on his hunt, I shared the woods with many other creatures and I simply was alone with my thoughts. The more experienced here will understand.

I've always considered the hunt more important than the kill. Glad you enjoyed it.

Nice to see people successful in their hunting moments most especially those who hunt many bucks for example and they were able to meat it. and cook the same.
Then probably the meat is going to cook to plate on a table.

Hello friends: Since my recent hunt I have been humbled. A closer friend discovered he has incurable cancer. I have become closer with his family as a result . I lost a couple friends this week to carbon monoxide poisoning. Life goes on. My daughter gave birth to a beautiful daughter on Feb 18. Mom and baby are doing well. All of these events made me aware that life goes on. It also came into focus that family and friends are really important. I feel blessed. I hope you all do too. Best, Bob

Glad to hear that the grandchild is doing well. Congratulations are in order, even if you didn't have much to do with this! :roll:

It seems that once you reach a certain age, one's friends start going over the great divide. I also lost two great friends recently and can commiserate with you. Keep up the good attitude - life goes on!
