    Front row seats to the Americas worst hunter videos. :frusty: So it starts with I wake up at 6am to get into my stand that I mounted the night prior. I get over there get ALLL the way up my whole 20 feet when I drop my ratchet strap ALLLLLLLLL THE WAY DOWN. OK so I climb down get my strap and strap my seat part of the stand to the tree, LOUD, NOISY just a PITA all together. THEN as if the first part wasnt bad enough I decided not to climg up that high again, I get everything situated I am seated I turn around to put the utility hook in the tree and SSSSSSSSSLIP there goes my bow str8 to the ground :frusty: I check my bow pull it back NO creaks, no cracks, no damage to the sight. I think my limbsaver s-coil hit the ground first THANK GOD. WELL after a few hours I decide to move to another tree. I go get situated Im up about 20-25 feet when HMMMMM where is my release? Im looking, looking pockets, harness, shirt, Im like WTH and low and behold there it is, SO pretty SO necessary, SOOOOO 30 yards away and 25 ft down :frusty: I saw nothing except 10000000 squirrels and a red robin that forgot how to fly and fell 100ft AT LEAST hit the ground, stood up and flew away. The ONLY highlight of my day was when a hawk or falcon some kind of bird of prey landed in the tree next to me. It was INCREDIBLE, it stood about1.5-2' tall but it definitly wasnt a turkey vulture. It was intense and amazing. Beautiful animal. After a few hours I started noddin out in the tree, catchin myself as my head hits stand. After all that it was time to get down.:doh:

    I thought my day was bad... I sat for 13 hours yesterday and saw 5 deer, only one of which I had a shot at. I could have let the air out of a button buck for all of about 20 minutes, I was sure the other does would come in right behind him, but they just stood around feeding on acorns and waited for the little guy to come back to where they were before heading west, into the wind that day.:noidea: First couple weeks of october always sucks!

    Most of us have those days... You just need to take it in stride and laugh at yourself about it.
