Re: Its a sad day !!
I passed a young 10 point up in archery and passed him again this past Saturday with the rifle. He is not a bad buck at all and I was kicking myself after he walked through my last shooting lane a few days ago.
But, as I type this, I sure am looking forward to getting back out there Friday and Saturday for the last hurrah. My chance of success is low but I am still hunting.
The worst day for me is sitting in the woods, leaning against my favorite oak, on the last day of flintlock. I feel the same as you do at the moment for sure.
I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!
