I can't help but wonder, what non-hunting, boneheaded, genious at the DNR made the command decision to put the "Special 4 Day Gun Hunt" right smack dab in the middle of the PRIME TIME part of the Bow Hunting season. Why coudn't they have put it at the begining of the Bow Hunt or just added 4 days at the end of the regular gun hunt.
Bow Hunting is like a religion to the true dedicated Bow Hunters. It just doesn't seem right, especially when Bow Hunters have been scouting, patterning and reconing the movements of deer in their woods for months.
One of the things I struggle with when afield is keeping my rifle clean and in good working order. Small amounts of dust and dirt collect moisture; moisture can freeze rendering your action immovable when you need it most. I have seen this happen on multiple occasions, and over time, I’ve learned the cause and how to prevent this from happening.
The first thing that you need to avoid before going afield is leaving excess oil on the gun. Oil will trap dirt and sand in all the wrong places....
