How many of us gun hunters believe that the statewide youth gun hunt effected the statewide gun season? Did the state schedule the youth too close to opening day? I like what ODOW did, but I think it could of been scheduled a bit different
to continue, I heard some complaints that the deer just were not there, but you have to factor in opening day, there was a pretty stiff wind all day, I hunted Ohio Power lands SW of Cambridge, and the deer just wernt there, like it was 2 weekends earlier when we scouted, and saw over 150 deer in about 6 hours, with over 3/4 of them in gun range, the quality of deer we saw was exceptional, actually more bucks than does,
As I sit and glass, which is common for hunters out west, I have sort of quickly discovered something I never learned when I was younger.
In my youth I had enthusiasm and spirit. In my middle to advancing years I have creaky knees, arthritis, and I tire more easily than I used to. Where I used to sit on the cold hard ground I now look for that soft spot to sooth my tired muscles. That leads me to my tip.
Carry your soft spot with you!
In my pack I carry an air filled, ultralight, camping pad....
