Before the forum had the Grand Slam Challenge they would have a give away each month for the best story that was submitted that month. Also since they didn't have the Challenge this last January they gave away a prize to the best story and Quinton's story won it. I suppose that starting in March we will go back to the story contest again if we don't continue with the Grand Slam Challenge.
Congrats on the call. Is it for predator hunting? If so get out there and chase em....always like chasing coyotes after goose season has ended....get some cold weather and snow and they are like calling in a bull elk to a cow in estrus!!
If you're lucky enough to be on private land and can leave your stand up during the off season you can tie an old piece of cloth or something of the sort to your stand. I like to use an old camo bandana that I have. That way the deer get used to the movement and eventually don't bother even looking up when there is slight movement. This may just give you the time to draw your bow or raise your gun without being detected.
