    Talking Shooting lanes

    I'm hunting in thick timber , that I cut shooting lanes other wise your arrow has a good chance of hitting a twig ot branch .

    I think that I'm the only one there doing that , cause others complain about misses that they know they were right on , guess they are too lazy to take the time and cut !

    How many lanes do you cut , I usually do three , but did four this time ?

    Like am I the only one here ?

    Talking A little known fact !

    Westy , baiting is illegal here in " The Tall Corn State " and most of us don't shoot pen held critters neither !

    Westy , how is everyone here going to admire " yours truly " knowing that I have to cheat ?

    Have I not stated that this year I'm not joining the orange army and will be using them to my advantage , as I wait with bow in hand for those gun guys to chase deer into my killing zone as I wait ?

    I'll let them ( that orange army ) do all the chasing this season and see how it works out , mate !

    Now you know and you are !

    This reminds me of a guy a few years ago , who also hunted the same timber as " yours truly " at the same time . Well this guy also never cut out shooting lanes , mostly because he switches stands , as he always moving his around !

    He was getting alot of shots , claimed he shot 19 times , hit 10 deer and had not one to show for it that year in January , as they all got away !

    He'll just have to learn on his own , as he has now moved next to me this season , but I doubt if he cuts any SHOOTING LANES !

    I don't like a surprise deflection on my arrow while in flight , cause chasing a wounded deer around , just sucks !

    I have never lost a deer because of a deflected arrow. I have made bad shots and lost deer. I do cut just not what i would think of as a lane. I have a friend who takes out trees until you could drive a truck down his lanes. I just pick my spots and cut what I have to and no more. I have only let 2 arrows fly in the woods that didn't result in me dragging a deer. to each their own i guess.
