Re: Deer Hunting.....Lightening the Load
I went through something similiar about 7 years ago.
Sold my compound and learned to shoot a recurve. Both simpler and lighter.
Quite taking non essentials like calls, binoculars, hatchet?, and basically downsized to get rid of my back pack.
Also started to use loc on stands to limit using my climber and even hunting off the ground from time to time.
Basically I have my bow and quiver, grunt call, bow hanger, a rope, and a knife.
It is much more enjoyable now.
The deer didn't disappear.... the 250,000 guys who used to walk around and make the deer move did.
