Sorry for the long post but I think it' a good story.

I got to practice real Maryland shooting conditions. 96 degrees with about 90% humidity. The Mossy Oak Archer's gloves are pretty sweet in this weather.

I also bought the Alpine cable slide today. Watching me and my buddy put it on my bow without a bow press was probably like watching 2 monkeys trying to hump a football.

First, he help the bow parallel to the ground and I tried to pull both cables back. Then we realized if he held the bow perpendicular to the ground I could draw the cables back and put the slide on. What a pain in the butt. However, the new slide seems pretty sweet.
I'll agree with your description. We had the old guy on the picnic table dumbfounded. (although I don't think it would have taken very much)

"How did you get a sticker and a patch! I didn't get one, I'll be right back.....[:@]"

lol

Mark,

Thank you for sharing your relationship with your father and grandfather. I hope you have many more years with your father and the few left hunting with your grandfather are special.

Jarrod,

Thanks man on both.

Thanks for the nice words Dave! Seems like we have a great bunch of guy's here.Some of the most decent people I know are hunters,it always hacks me off when people make negative generalizations or stereotypes about hunters.
I just got back from setting two game camera's,they are about a mile apart,one is in the middle of a bedding area.Lots of tracks,none of them look to be that big.The other spot is on a ridge,a runway coming down the edge of it.It is getting used,and it is close to a real thick saddle,there is also some old bear sign there.
I think I will be moving camera's every weekend now until the opener.I really want to see if I can locate a couple of real good bucks.Time will tell.

I agree totally with you about hunters. Anti's paint us as a bunch of blood thirsty mongrels who hate our mothers when in reality most hunters are probably the most caring people out there.

I hope you catch some nice deer on your cameras. I bought my brother one of the ladder stands from Dick's to replace a stand he had built about 7 yrs ago that is falling out of a tree. Between the portable and the ladder stand and our climbers we should be able to move around different properties.

I'm trying to decide about getting a deer hauler. The one area I hunt is thick and my climber may not work. however, with the portable and sticks I can get up in there but I'm not allowed to leave a stand in position so I'll be hauling it in each time I hunt.

To post one of the pictures as your avatar you need to right click on the picture and save it to your PC. Then, in your profile tou have to download the picture and apply.

Thanks for the avatar help Dave! It seems like kind of a drag to be bringing sticks and your stand in every time you want to hunt that spot.Are you allowed to put tree steps in tree's there? I am guessing probably not.If you could put steps in a tree than you could leave all or most of them in and then just bring a light fixed position stand in on your back.
I am going to think about this situation a bit and see what comes to me.Are you allowed to leave anything in the tree?

Do you hunt public land or a club or something?

Jarrod,

Can you post the picture you have minus the badger? That one kicks some tail.

Scot,

That's cool about your nephew. It's great to see young people excited about hunting and especially archery. Sounds like you are doing everything right too. I also appreciate what you said on my thread and your story about what happened with you is touching. I can relate to what you went through with always being too busy. It's like our senses wake-up when we go back into the woods. What happened with your father is cool. That's great that you went with him and also got a buck. I'm proud of you being on my team.

Mike,

Thank you for the comments. You're a good guy.

I've very proud of my team right now. What a bunch of great guys.
Dave, just telling it like it is. We have an awesome team and I really think we'll be a contender. I wanted to let you know I'll be out on a trip to CA Thurs -Mon so I probably be offline. When I get back its all focus on getting ready for the season.

You're welcome about the avatar.

It's old military property that is now public hunting. The property was onceordinance testing facility and part of Fort Meade. I checked the P&Yrules concerning a place like this before deciding to qualify to ensure that I could post a deer from the property and found through a search that military bases are acceptable due to their size. Over 12,000 acres of property to hunt and it's my first year there.

You are not allowed to screw anything in the trees or leave anything there. Next week I'll be allowed to venture into the woods and get a better understanding of the trees where I plan on hunting. right now it's been all aerial photos and topo work and have a few places picked out that I hope are off the beaten path.

Mike,

Not a problem. Have a safe trip and we'll here from you when you get back. I'm going to be gone for the same time period down to my brother's place for the holiday weekend.

We have about 30 things we'd like to do for either deer or duck hunting and he works half the time. Maybe slip in an afternoon dove hunt too.
