    Well thanks for telling me I sound like a girl.....:frusty: lol! I do have a pretty full schedule...full time student, full time job and full time hunter. I am working as a process engineer for a mid sized company, pretty relaxed atmosphere, able to spend some time on 3dshoots at work, the company is paying for my schooling, not to bad of a deal! And I get out of here about 2 or 2:30 to hunt the evenings, 3 weeks off this year for hunting(plant shutdowns) they would like me to work, but I would like the days off.....:rockon: My classes meet every other weekend 8-4:30 sat. and sun. I also help out at the local pro-shop/outfitter the weekends I don't have class. Just until jan. 09 then I will have my BA in industrial technology, might go for my masters in business administration but I haven't decided yet.

    Will be out with the rifle this year, as the last 2.

    Next year prolly not. Bow during rifle them break out the ML for the rest.
    Prefer being inside 40 yards:wave:

    Yes, I will be out during shotgun season. I consider myself a hunter, mostly a bowhunter, but a hunter who will get out any chance I can get. Would much rather shoot a deer with my bow though.

    it's going to be a little tougher i think this season...opening day is a few days away and even though the leaves have changed...not many have fallen...can't see verry far in the woods.:frusty: depending on stand location even a 50yd shot would be tough.

    Bingo :thumb:. I hate when bow only guys think they are superior to those that hunt w/ a firearm. I hunt as much as I can, regardless of weapon used. But to me, a bow kill always means more.
