Time for a move... :(
Well, as hard as I hunted this bow season, after tomorrow, I will have to post any deer harvested in the deer hunting forum. I hung my bow up last week due to extenuating circumstances and will be in the stand with a muzzleloader tomorrow. I was really hoping to get a good one with my bow this year, but it wasn't for lack of opportunities or trying. I gave a good run at it, hunted 20 times or so (a heck of a lot more than I have ever gotten the chance for in past seasons).

So, I just wanted to say congrats to everyone who got one with their bow this year. I'd love to keep hunting with my bow, but at 8 months pregnant, my time is running out, as well as my energy reserves! LOLI've got to get another deer for the freezer. Also, my mom will be hunting for the first time tomorrow afternoon, and I will be guiding her every step of the way with my muzzleloader, so I am hoping I tag out in the morning so I can concentrate on her hunt tomorrow night.

Good Luck tomorrow. I am also hanging up the bow and picking up my shotgun so I can fill the freezer. I think it is awsome that you are this far along and still hunting! I am working hard trying to get my fiance to pick up hunting but she still hasnt said she will yet.

Same here... After going hard at it, bowhunting all season, I'm to go rifle huntingthe whole week of Thanksgiving and part of the week after.

I will be leaving real early Sat morning (maybe Fri night - I don't know yet, depends on how much I can get packed) and heading out to the western part of VA, out to the mountains to the deer hunting camp that I belong to. We all meet up every year at Thanksgiving week/opening day firearms season and hunt the whole week, weekend, next week, etc..etc... It's a little slice of heaven out there.

I'llbring both my Remington 870, my Marlin 30-30, and my Summit Viper (maybe my Reflex Highlander bow if there's room), so then I can pick and choose what type of hunting I want to do and with what firearm. Wish me luck!!!!!! :D

Well, ckiel, thank you. LOL Some have different opinions of what I should and should not be doing right now. I'm fortunate enough that my stand is an easy 5 minute walk, so it's not a huge deal IMO. I just couldn't imagine hanging up hunting for a year due to a pregnancy, it's not really an inconvenience anyway... hunting passes the time faster for me, I'm getting antsy to meet this lil' huntress!

I wish you all luck with whatever weapon you choose to take out with you this weekend!

Butch, I think it's great that you come home for Thanksgiving dinner, many wouldn't! But hey, you gotta keep the wife happy! ;)

I'll be scanning the deer hunting forum this weekend when I'm not hunting, so I'll be lookin' for both of ya!

Thanks... Yeah, my wife would beat my a$$ if I missed Thanksgiving dinner with family! [:-] At least camp is close (2 - 2hr/15min away), so it's no biggy to quickly head home and head back to continue hunting.

Good luck with the smoke pole. Go get a good one.

Ill be out with my sticks and strings until Dec.. Got two does so far and working on that big buck. Havent had the chance to hunt as much as I usually do. Ive been out twice this year. Ill be out most of Thanksgiving with my recurves and probably my compound. The big guys might be moving by then.

I think that is some hard core effort heading out at 8 months pregnant. That's something, good for you. Best of luck with the baby and your deer season.

RE: Time for a move... :(
Wow, I agree... 8 months pregnant and hunting. {insert theme of the TV show "Wonder Woman" here} ;):D[8D]

Good luck and be safe!!!!

Not a stand as in tree stand? Please be safe and good luck to you and your mom.

I'm hanging up my bow tomorrow evening and probably won't break it back out until next year. I took a decent 8 pointer with it 3 weeks ago but I have an extra tag that I will try to fill tomorrow. Gun season opens Monday and I expect to be out there by Monday evening. My wife has some test scheduled at the hospital opening morning so I'll be with her untill noon. Be careful out there Buck Huntin Girl. Hope you're hunting close to the house just in case Baby Buck Huntin Girl decides to make her apperance.......:D:D:D:D Good Luck to you all....

I am going out starting tomorrow with the .300 mag. I have yet to get a shot at one with the bow. If I put one down with the rifle, I may get the bow back out.
