Isn't it amazing how the rest

Isn't it amazing how the rest of the world can disappear when focused in on a possible shot at game?  50 yards from the truck & your in maximum excitement mode!  What an adventure!  Regardless of getting a shot off or not you've got a trophy story to tell that will be as fresh and vivid in your mind twenty years from now as it is today.  Hunting isn't only about the killing but that being said - a few steaks in the freezer ain't so bad either.  Patience & persistence and the payoff will be that much sweeter!

  My heart always beat hard

 

My heart always beat hard and fast during an archery season and having deer approach me or me approaching them.  Not so much the same during rifle deer season.  It is the primitive aspect that gets me going more so.

You are absolutely right on being out in the woods is what it is all about.  This time of year is the best. 

Although this was a great read.  I could imagine the trail you were on and the deer in their different places.  It sounds like you have a great amount of opportunity left in the year so I know you will have some great harvest and pictures for all of us.

Also - I use to lose large amounts of response or story sometimes -- now I always copy before I preview or save so if it is lost I still have the information to paste back into a new form.

I finally got one

Brothers and Sisters I finally got my 1st bow kill.  Bowtech Assasin 60lbs, Maxima 250 carbon express with blazers, 100grain montec G5 carbon steel.  Complete pass through left front shoulder both lungs and some heart.  Buck spun and went the other way for 20 yards stopped and did the whole I don't feel so good wobble wobble wobble and down.  This past weekend was the 1st frost for middle georgia.  4 bucks were taken in 48hrs on our hunting club.  My daughter on Friday Morning got her 1st deer that happened to be a buck.  I'm typing a story and pictures for that one.  We were blessed this weekend and gave many thanks and praise in his name.  Jesus.
