Nicely done Golem! Glad to see they left you alone long enough to get the job done. I had a thought about that.....Change your message to "I'm sorry, I'm busy being silent right now, please use the binoculars on the window sill, and let me do what I'm here for. Thank you for not scaring away the game." Then turn your phone to silent or off. ;)
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.

Made me add the hours up. 17 hours total, killed three deer and one turkey, messed up a shot at 22-yards when my arrow rattled on the hook while taking to bow down.

Cold front coming in Sunday night. Going to wait until Monday morning to go again. Firts three or four days next week look good for both morning and afternoon. I need to kill four or five more to fill everybody's freezers up. Then I can start serious buck hunting.

as excited as i am about getting this kill got a phone call about my grandmother last night ...
i knew she was in the hospital for a broken hip and surgery was a success ..

while in recovery she suffered several heart attacks about 1:30am and passed before 2 ..
they did everything they could to revive her ...
she was 89 and my grandparents had just celebrated 70 years of marriage .in july .

... thanks .. but my excitement is nothing more than confusion now ..
:|

i guess the excitement is postponed till the next harvest ...

Sorry about your grandmother.

Have to change my stats. It is now 19-hours with four deer and two turkeys.
