Joel and everybody:
Now, here's question : if you're down to a doe tag, and you know you're probably going to see a shootable doe, then what?
What happens when there's no more "WOW" left in the season?
Here are the options I've tried:
1) Stay home. Bummer. Season ends to soon.
2) Go out, but don't carry a weapon. There's another name for it: hiking. Again, bummer. I could join the Sierra Club and eat granola too.
3) Go out, carry a weapon, but don't shoot anything until the last possible moment, or not at all. It's a little hard to get used to. My friend Beryl does it too. Things get very existential up in the treestand.
4) Bring a camera. I really need a different lens to do it justice, but here is what I did last year: Eye Candy
I'm open to other ideas.
