    Default how do you deal with,"Off Season Blues?"

    I started to bow fish in the early spring and summer in the dead of winter I Bowhunt coyotes from my ground blind. I would say shooting a coyote with a bow is 10X harded then deer.

    So what do you guys do it pass the winter month.
    Lose'em, shoot'em, fling'em, or fly'em aslong as they hit the mark. SHOOT FOR YOU!!!!!!!!!!

    don't forget there is a spring bear season- although bear hunting in MT is hard-no bait.

    Default Off season

    Still enjoy the trail camera suprises and just watching deer. You can learn much about bedding, feeding and activity in general just watching deer. Then later there is always shed hunting. If it is all about shooting then practice practice practice---you can never do this to much. Even in cold weather it will get the blood flowing. Enjoy

    Kill spots, tune bow, build arrows, buy more equipment I really don't need, and then keep repeating all over again until hunting season begins.
