Big Difference in Three Years

Postby Bowriter » Thu Nov 15, 2012 4:10 pm

Three years ago, I needed help to walk 100-yards and was able to hunt 90-minutes total all year. I killed one deer.

Yesterday, I drug number seven for the year out and threw her in the truck without getting out of breath. I am even considering elk hunting again next year. If I think I can handle the NM altitude, I may go.

With work, determination and a lot of help from Tam Apo, I have come a long way from being nearly dead.

Good for you! I love stories like that. What do you do with 7 deer though?

" I needed help to walk 100-yards and was able to hunt 90-minutes total all year. I killed one deer." I'm astonished you got one in 90 minutes or less. ;)
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.

Good for you John! See what clean living will do for ya?

I had a bit of my own "rebirth" a year or so ago. I lost about 30 pounds, got a lot of my stamina back, and my knees don't feel like they're about to give out on me. Now if I could only make some money again I just might be able to enjoy it!

Was it the "locks for love" program?

Congratulations! That is great to hear. I lost 20 pounds this spring and I feel better then I did in my early thirties. Increased strength, stamina and confidence can go a long way to help you be a better hunter. It can also make you a lot happier.

If you mean "locks" as in hair........I don't think so! What hair I do still have is grey and few and far between!
