3 days for deer already this season. probably about 10 days (evenings mostly) already for grouse/quail. hopefully i'll get that blacktail tag filled soon and then i can concentrate on patterning elk and getting some duck hunting in.
all in all i'll probably get about 30 days in a year...maybe a little more if i am lucky.
Let me start off by saying that I am a scaredy cat.
For someone that spent 3 years in 82nd Airborne jumping out of all manner of military aircraft, my friends find this ludicrous - but... it is what it is!
Climbing stand? Yep, still scared - put me up 15' and that is about it.
Ladder stands? I am better in these - but still cautious.
Chain on stands? Used to love them, now they terrify me.
I was once ridiculed for putting chain on stands waaaay too high - some of my friends...
