    My goal this season is to get out more... Shooting a deer is just a bonus. For me its about getting out in the tree and relaxing without worrying about the stresses of work (unless I'm on the clock that is hehe)

    I'm hoping to shoot another yearling this year, we had a blast 2 years ago with cooking it over the open fire on a spit... Maybe I'll even invite Bunny and JayAre this year...


    nahhhhhh :P

    I would love a couple of does for the freezer (we just used up our last pound of meat the other day.) I would need a buck that would surpass my current best (120 P&Y). I have gone a couple years w/o a buck, but am happy killing does until the right one comes along. I also get a great sense of accomplishment passing up the bucks that don't quite make the cut.

    Goal # 1, to enjoy the beauty and appreciate the freedom I have to hunt. Goal #2, to fill my kill tags and the freezer. Goal # 3, to see and maybe arrow a nice buck.

    My goal last year was 2 does and a buck. I shot my goal...but only bagged one doe. Dern do I punch it when I am nervous. I got a guy who will take the meat off my hands this year, so hopefully I can get the doe pop under controll. I don' like to shoot much more than a doe and then maybe a trophy buck becuase it takes so much time to process them. I got two-blade heads and fobs, so I am planning on getting pass throughs to keep broken arrow costs down, I plan on taking so many. Hopefull the brisket shot 10 pointer will come back with 12, but I am not hoping on a buck. My goal is to sleep more and not have hunting slave me like it did last year. I would get up 6 mornings a week at 5 just to try and get one. I want it to be fun and not just pure addiction. I could not cease hunting- I had to, no matter how misserable the weather or how tired or whatever. Even when I wasn't hunting I was thinking about it. I had it bad last year. Hopefully I can control my life this year.

    Default My Goal

    I have been bow hunting since I was 16yrs old. I spent 6 months in military school. I then joined the army and with Iraq and everything have not got that much time to Bow hunt. So this year my goal will be to get my first kill on any animal deer or wild pig with a bow for the first time. I have some really nice bucks scouted about 20yrs from my stand a 4, 8 and 10 pointer. I would like a buck to be my first bow kill. But I can't eat horns so im not to picky.

    My goal has been the same now for the past 3 years. I first want to pop a doe or two for meat then im after the same big dude i have been after for 3 years. He's like a legend on the property i hunt and ive always been on em hes always just one step ahead of me. Last year i bought rifle tags and went out with my bow. I had a close call with that deer. He actually chagred at me scared the piss outa me. Hes the biggest deer ive seen and hes an absolute ghost. I am almost hesitant to take a shot at him because once hes gone whats next ya know hes the absolute trophy known on the property i hunt and i think the hunts always way more fun than the kill ya know.

    My goal would be to not get fired from work from taking off too many days to go hunting

    Future goals = get my 4 year old and 18 month old daughters involved in the outdoors.

    I hope to get about 5 to 10 days in the stand, and bag 2 or 3 does. I don't care about antlers, just want to fill the freezer with as much high quality meat as my $10 doe permit will give me. And get some good quiet thinking time in the tree stand. That seems to be the only place I can collect my thoughts in peace and quiet anymore.

    Shoot 3 deer to fill a freezer, if one was a nice 8 point (or better) that would be nice.
