    Enjoy a little boredom.

    Watch college basketball and hunting shows on tv. Feed cows, shoot in my yard, build arrows, talk about last season and next years prospects. No indoor archery within 100 miles around here that I know of.

    this year I'll be shooting my first spots league though so thats something to look forward to... especially considering i haven't shot my spots bow (OG) for about 2 1/2 months

    I like to do some scouting after season. Gives me an idea of what exactly I missed while sitting in my stands. Gotta find me a new indoor range to shoot this year. Maybe I'll try the Archers Spot it is only about 20-25 miles from here. Only problem is they do not deal in Mathews yet. :Cry:

    I gave them a call and it seems as though they have the Mathews dealership from my old shop that closed. They have been wanting this for awhile I was told. So it seems as though they did'nt even deal in Mathews and were Darksiders.:biggrin1:


    Sorry for the HIJACKING now :focus:

    After the hunt - when the real work begins

    After season I focus on three things:

    1) Excercise - I like to keep the old ticker and lungs in good shape. Dragging deer ain't for the weak. I also like to lift weights 2-3 times a week to keep the arms in top shape for a smooth draw and keep the legs in shape for rugged hikes during season caring gear and/or climbers into the woods.

    2) Shed hunting/scouting - who lives hear and what did I miss.

    3) More access - find out who owns that land then get access for a bowhunter.

    Still have a couple wks of bow season left and still plan to hunt as hard as possible.But after that i'm going to do a lot of cutting where my stands are at.....had a lot of tall under growth this past season.It's a lot easier to do that in the winter than in the summer....don't have to put up with the ticks/chiggers......than it's time to start thinking about spring turkey season..
