I choose to stay out of my stands during the early season for fear that I will disturb deer that are unseen in the dense underbrush or standing crops. With the possible exception of a cool evening sit along a crop field, I do not plan on hunting for another 3-4 weeks. Does anyone else out there do this?
My stands are hung, my gear is scrubbed clean and packed away in air tight bags, my tags are purchased and we have a glorious high pressure cold front moving in. By this weekend I will have access to two states with open bow seasons. I have to admit that I feel itchy!
The problem is, after starting this thread I can't go back on my word. Fortunately I have a slight shoulder injury that needs rest and will keep me home. Haha!
If that dream bucks walks out on opening day I will shoot him just the same as if he walks out the last day. Just being in the woods is what its really about for me.
My family owns about 220 acres that I hunt and we are fortunate that the backside of it backs up to a WMA that is open for statewide bowhunting.
