Default Who's ready?

I have go to the bank this morning and see about a loan for broadheads, besides that my equipment is ready for opening day.

Stands and clothes, now that's a different story. I got 3 stands I still want to get moved around and I haven't even dug my hunting clothes out.

The time is getting near!!

Are you ready?

Stands are up though some should be replaced (getting old). 1 bow should be good to go, the other just got new threads and is not ready. I am the weak link, have'nt shot but once since last season. I'm not changing anything as far as arrows or heads or bows this year. Just have to start shooting. mid Oct is my opener. I cannot remember not shooting for this long since I started in the mid 70's. Life happens sometimes I guess. I'll be ready.

OH BOY OH BOY

I packed me a a few cool ones and sat on the edge of my bean field last night and all I can say is OH BOY OH BOY

I got to move me some stands around and quick like. The pics are crap but there were acoup[le dandy 8 points and a nice tall 6, all look to be at least 2.5 year old bucks. Had a few smaller guy wander out too. All told 21 deer were working on that bean field, the beans are pretty much destoryed.

Yeap.........I took a long look at the Rage's in the case, the a long look in my wallet and grabbed a pack of muzzy's.

I used some slick tricks last year for the first time with good results but muzzy's always do the job at a reduced price.

Well, I said I was all set with broadheads, but I visited Cabelas.
4 Gorrila stands, a Kayak paddle, a decoy sled (deer sled) and a pac of shuttle T locs later...
These T-locs are not what I would call sharp. I can rub my thumb up and down and no worries about getting a cut. They will be, but I got to buy a round or oval steel. WTH, how can they let these BROADHEADS out of the house like this? HELLO, THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO BE SHARP!!
