Many times in life you will be thrown a curve ball. How you react can either win or lose you the game, so being ready for anything can save the day or even your life.
It seems Iím already having one of those years. Nothing is going easy and wonít relent without a struggle. Iím not fazed yet and probably wonít be. Life can be hard and trying at times, but putting on a war face and trudging through the muck of life can be extra rewarding.
I hope everyone had a great first day of bow season, but Iím positive not everyone did. The reason I know this is I didnít myself. The morning started off good, cool and dry, in comparison to the previous few days. I actually managed to find all my gear but my rangefinder. Personally, my finder is only second on my list of important bow hunting equipment. I had to choose a relatively tight hunting location that would offer shots not much over 20 yards. I call the area from your feet out to 20 yards, the ďdummy zone,Ē because you can just acquire the target and shoot without having to adjust for yardage. You do have to pay attention to the deerís body language and aim an inch or so low if itís alert. This can prevent a high hit if the deer reacts to the shot, otherwise, it should be a no-brainer.
