86 Days Until Bow Season!

Postby FireCloud » Tue Jul 06, 2010 11:12 pm

Bow season opens in just 86 more days! That's only twelve weekends left to clear trails and shooting lanes, repair stands, put out scouting cameras, position feeders or improve food plots, get your camp area in order, and do whatever else needs to be done in the woods well before opening day. Better make that only nine weekends left, because you want to stay out of the woods entirely those last two or three weeks. And of course you have to get your gear in order too, stock up on hunting supplies, and be sure your license is valid.

I have set a personal goal to shoot a dozen arrows every single day until season opens, thus taking over 1,000 pre-season practice shots. In the event some changes do occur in the archery season this year, I feel it is important to be fully ready on October 1 and prepared to hunt hard in October. More hunters in the woods in November with firearms could alter deer movement patterns making them go nocturnal sooner and will certainly result in more hunting pressure in some locations. Thus, archers should get ahead of the curve now to be fully ready on opening day.

Gtk, is it too early to post your handy count down counter?

Been shooting 25 to 50 arrows a day since Friday evening... got a used 2009 Bear truth 2 bow this summer and I am absolutely loving it... I will tone it back down to about 20 arrows a day all the way up to opening day.....the reason I do twenty is when its this hot it takes one cold adult beverage per 10 arrows so I usually stop after 2 beers fer supper.....

I let about 20 arrows go this afternoon before work with my "new" (used) bear recurve. I did pretty well (for me) at 15 yds with most groups inside of 4 1/2 inches and 3 of my 5 groups had 2 shafts touching. :shock: I really hope I can get one of those old slick heads inside of 15 yds this year.. :ylsuper:
