The boys and I went to the pro shop today and got our bows tuned and some arrows made up.  My youngest son grew many inches since last year, so his draw length was increased by two inches.  Accordingly, we had to adjust sights this afternoon.  He is still struggling a bit, but is managing to make some fairly nice patterns at ten and twenty yards.  My bow got a new string and after warming up and adjusting my site, I am geeting a 3-4 inch pattern at 20 yards.  For me, that is good.  We'll be in the trees tomorrow and hopefully will take an early doe for the freezer.  I love this time of year.

I bought a 22 bolt action Marlin today to hunt squirrels and hogs with, put a nice 3x9 scope on, has good weight to it, I'm pumped!

Bow season opens Oct 1, for us.

Ya'll have a good time in the woods and be safe.

Is it bow season already?  Too bad I don't bow hunt.   Sad

Hope no one bags the big buck I keep seeing before I get a chance to get out there after it when the rest of the season opens up.

I have aa old Savarge modle 24, 22WMR and 410 O/U that's good for just about everything.  From rabbits and quail, to deer and geese...you do have to make every shot count though.  For other things I have a 12 ga, 2 16 ga, and a 20 ga shotguns, and rifles in 7.62x39, 7.62X54, 30-30, 8mm, and pistols in 32, 9mm, 38 Spl, and 380 ACP.  And don't ask how many single shot 22s or pellet guns I have...I honestly don't know, I've lost count.

If I were going to bow hunt I'd use a compound crossbow.

Everyone seems to own a handgun today for "protection" but IMO nothing beats a 12 guage shot gun for that, just aim and shoot and you can be off somewhat and still get the job done if you're shakin' and pee's runnin' down your leg.

MAN! We don't start until October! (not far now!) My brother and I were out dove hunting last Sunday and did a little scouting since there were no birds and jumped a very nice 8-point whitetail from the swamp near where he'll be hunting... The blood's starting to get pumping...

Got a new back quiver to try this year and I'm making some more arrows right now. Everything's tuned, tweaked, lubed, and ready for action!

Keith, haven't been in the pearl since right after Katrina, but like always, I can guarantee you snips will be in hand.

Good luck, ain't nothing like hearing swamp deer slopping through the muck as they draw near to ya, that's some exciting hunting, my favorite type in fact.

No luck Sunday night, but I really did not expect much more than chatting with a 13 year old.  My son and I sat in a stand and talked about lots of things while his mother and brother (12) sat in another stand and did the same thing.  Hard to see a deer when we are talking, but  I would not have dreamed of telling him that.  We had a great time, and when the hunt was over my son said, " I had fun Dad, let's do this again."  So, deer or not, the hunt was a success.  We are going again Friday night after scool and a few rounds of practice with the bow. What fun.

I agree with your approach 100%, very unselfish of you, gold stars all the way around.

Awe jeeze! *goofy look".

I own two compound bows. I have a nice PSE "beast" and a Hoyt Ultra-tech cam and a half. I have owned these bows for several years. I draw a tag each year, most years I get out into my backwoods and tromp about as I am not much for sitting a stand. I've never killed any deer with either bow. When I am just hiking, I see deer, when I have my rifle, I see deer, although they are does and my general season tags for rifle specify bucks only. when I take my bow out, NOT ONE! I've seen bear though, of course, bear weren't on my to shoot list *shrug* no shortage of squirrels watching me stomp about whilst looking for mule deer. The does seem to know who has an AO tag with a bow and vanish. Some hunter I am! *shakes head*
