The waiting hurts more when you know the season is already open and other guys are already out there chasing them. Hopefully your water hole pays off quickly. It's been hot but it's sure rained a lot this year.
Weird thing about the area we hunt is for some reason we hardly ever see another bow hunter, and my partner did not draw so I know he is not up there...now rifle is a different story..almost like a sea of orange hats running around.
Jim Zumbo, Craig Boddington, Ron Spomer and Wayne Van Zwoll are all solid contributers to the modern hunting literature. Through their gifts (both hunting and writing) they make us better hunters. Whether it is letting us learn from their mistakes or by teaching us new techniques,they help us harvest more game. But I suggest looking to the oldies, the fathers of the outdoor writing craft, to learn tricks that you might have not used.
I chose to shoot the 270 winchester because I grew up...
