well, think i just sold my beloved hoyt! i have injured my bow arm elbow, not sure how or what i have done, but the hoyt is just too heavy for me to carry. cant hardly sleep after hunting cause my elbow throbs so bad. gonna try and find a nice used light weight bow( light phisical weight that is, not draw wieght as i only pull mid 60\'s anyway), or a rifle. may just get back into coyote huntin, and then rifle hunt this year if the elbow doesnt get better. anyway, i did check out the new piece of property that i can hunt and it looks good, but......i got about a hundred or more seed ticks on me also sunday. and man i hate ticks! so i may just wait till it gets cold to go do any hunting anyway!

well, i took the 308, and my oldest son to the rifle range saturday. have not shot it since rifle season last year, and she spit 5 shots in the orange one inch dot. had bought some fusion lite reduced recoil loads for him, and they shot about 4 inches low, so i brought the scope up 12 clicks, and she was good. he shot 5 rounds and did pretty good. it is too long for him, but he enjoyed shooting it, and with my shooting sticks i think he will be able to get a deer this weekend. he was so proud of himself when i put a 3 inch orange clay pigeon out there at 100 yds and he scattered it. was awsome to see him shoot, and smile about it. i think he is hooked now! we will see what happens this weekend. wish us luck.

well the boy got his first deer yesterday. had sat a field i had seen 2 does in friday night, but seen nothing saturday morning, so we decided to try it again in the afternon, and we got in there around 4:30, about an hour later the same 2 does came out about 200 yds down the field like clockwork. we watched them feed toward us, and at 65 yds chris made a good shot on her! i was way more excited then he was i think.

well, no horns in my hands yet! but we have seen a couple of good ones running this last weekend. came home after goin to town pulled down the drive about 3:30 and a nice big 8 pointer was standin in the hayfield. so we hit the woods. i grabbed my dads 30-30 because i was goin to go rattle and i wanted a gun with open sights. dad grabbed my 308 and sat at the edge of the hayfield, another nice buck stepped out into my foodplot, dad shot, and he thought he hit him. we looked for an hour or so, no blood. that is when i noticed what shells he grabbed and he grabbed my sons reduced recoil loads that shoot 4plus inches low! so i kinda screwed that one up for him, i should have taken those outa my bag before i left the house! anyway, was a good weekend to say the least. we will be back at it tomorrow.

well, went to a new spot this morning, was a nice morning to be out,,,,,for a couple of hours then the rain got heavier and the temps got lighter! burrrrr. anyway, stuck it out and had a nice 8 or 9 point non typical come by at about 8:30, perfect right side with 4 or 5 points, but the left had the main beam and 2 lil points stickin up, and 2 drops comin off it! he was a 2 and a half year old, if he makes it a year or gtwo he will be a dandy! gonna try it again tommorow, hopefully a buddy brings me a climber to use!
