So what's everyone doing to keep the cabin fever away since the deer seasons are now closed? I kinda been going crazy these last few weekends. I guess it's time to dust of the crow decoys and the caller and maybe get a small game hunt in yet.

Im going out of my mind. I might go hang some trail cams on thursday, just to see what I can get, and maybe take the .223 and e-caller along and see if I cant call a dog in while theres still some snow on the ground here. I wish there was some resident geese hanging out in this area, but haven't been seeing many, or I'd be out chasing those around. Come on turkey season...

Been busy building a house for one of my sons. I bought a new Elite Pure should be here today. I am going back to a longer ATA bow. I have a 20 yard range in my basement and shoot alot and also i shoot in a winter league. The older i get the longer these winters seem to get.

20 yard range in your basement, the ultimate guys room, love it. When my son built his garage, he built 70 ft length, so we could shoot 20 yds during the winter months. As for the off-season, with the snow on the ground, I do a lot of scouting for next season.

Took a walk yesterday on one of the farms I hunt. Too much snow there to really look for sheds. Only saw two sets of small buck tracks. Jumped tons of does and fawns though. Ill probably check another farm this weekend and see whats going on there. Might even do some trout fishing on Sunday to kill some time...

Doing some paper tuning on my new arrows and playing around with some different fletchings. Able to shoot in my basement, so with the wood stove and keg fridge nearby, its a good place to escape the wife and kids when i can;t get out.

I don't know about you but with a few beers in me I can shoot so much better. It's kinda weird how that works. Hah hah

I'm going out of my mind. Started tinkering with some of the old sheds I've found and little bucks I still have the antlers from. Made a powder measure for my flintlock, and a primer flask. Then a few knife handles and 2 knives so far. Ordered leather and a few tools to make sheaths so thats got me thinking about making my own quiver and arm guard.

Come on spring!

I've been shooting some plus I built some arrows a few weeks ago and that helped. I plan to hunt turkeys with a bow (first time ever) this spring so I have also been watching a lot of turkey bowhunts on youtube haha.
