Default What are your goals.

I'm not narrowing this down to a goal for the season/pre season...

But what are your "Archery" goals.

For me,
- this year is gonna be the year I take a mature buck (crossed fingers).
- I was talkin with the gf earlier and before I leave this place, I want to have hunted as many states/provinces as possible (financially).
-Canada is a top spot that I want to go. To me it's about a place that has as much area that seems as untouched as you can get, if that makes sense.
- Eventually, I would like to own an Archery Shop.
- I guess I am a dreamer, but I could list a lot of other goals as well as the above, just thought this might spark some new interest as well.

I want to also get as much scouting as possible in this spring and summer. And really nail down some more habits of the deer in my area.

I feel blessed by God to hunt. My goals are to,

1. Take full advantage of God's blessing
2. Work harder than last year and begin scouting the land that I hunt in Jackson MI beginning in August.
3. Work hard and practice every day
4. Get out and enjoy the outdoors in which God has blessed me with!

This year? I always say I'm gonna get stronger and shoot 70lbs, that would be nice, I plan to get new vanes on 2 of my other sets of arrows, the cheetahs and whitetails....think Ill shoot the whitetails though, they lighter than my current rhinos though not super like, also I want to try some rage 2 blades.

This year, i think im going to force myself to take a doe, though I think last year I didnt even get a shot and that ws the plan as well. but this year does and management bucks are fair game. and of course monster buck....if he comes around....

I want to scout more....

1.improve my shooting at different shot angels and elevations as-well as accuracy out at my farther ranges.
2. improve my ratteling.
3. scout more effectivley.
4. and finaly,before daylight decidewhich bow i am going to take.

I am going to go back to where I was raised (Arizona) and take a muley with my left handed bow.
Be more consistent with proper form.
Take a few more hogs this year than in the previous years.
Buy a recurve
