It all worked out for me to get a nice 8 point on last day of bow.On the opener I was out with a DAMP and bear tag in 3A. I appreciate that I was still able to go out and be a part of this new tradition. I heard only far away shots on a perfect sunny and cold day that was very quiet. Weather was not an issue like last years' washout. I saw a few road hunters when leaving and nobody in the woods.Yes times are changing but if you do not feel thrilled on being out there...then it might be time to hang it up,no matter what your age is.
