Went to lease in Weirgate to fill feeders yesterday, brought camper back today, loaded jeep to go to lease in Burnet to Turkey hunt a few days, maybe catch some pigs or put an arrow through a pig or Aoudad. The good thing about shooting sticks is no noise.

Motivation to go out and do it.

Too damn many trespassers putting up tree stands that I have to cut down.

Most of my hunting partners have retired or died and I don't really feel like breaking in a new crew of younger guys and at 65 I'm on the edge of being too old to go it alone.

Got 2 of the food plots tilled up.

Got the deer shanty base up and cemented in yesterday. Walls went up today.

Don't "need" this stuff to be ready. Just doing it because I "want" to.

Deer hunting is a passion. All aspects, scouting, shed hunting, hanging stands, food plot prep, running cameras...it never stops


Hunt...

Damn, you really have been bit by the ‘99 bug. Must be doing some serious business with Fireballs. .358’s then .284...
I have to admit both intrigue me deeply. The .358 is easier for me to ‘comprehend’, the .284 seems like pure rareum unobtanium, but still intriguing.

To the question, I need :

Time

Deer (life in NH)

A new job and life. Hahaha

Ballz swears by that oddball .284....
I am in no position to doubt his credence, but would sooner look for a .280 R,.... but......

Well, quite a few things. I am not quite a weeek away from getting my second full hip replacement. The other one was 06-30-2020. I am badly out of shape and fat to boot.

Therapy for the next few weeks. Then:Lots of conditioning. Lots of strength training. Bike riding.Getting used to what clothes to wear. Spending as much time as practical outside.

Hunt camp and firearm gear is ready. Vehicles too. Luckily I will have 2-3 reliable patners to help a little if I need it.

Now we need to pull some tags.

I always remember that I need 5 things for deer hunting.

1Gun or Bow
2 Ammo / arrows/broadheads
3 Check wind direction & weather conditions / pick a stand according, decide which door to exit leaving house.
4 Something to eat & drink for the day or the deed is done or I had enough for the early shift.
5 The rest will all fall into place.


I would have got him too but a Dad Blam snow flake hit me in da eye....
