Default Walking with an arrow?

Alright mighty hunters, how many of you walk to your stands in the dark with an arrow in hand. I don't know about you guys and gals but I do. I have had everything from yotes, possums, raccoons even people walking up to me in the dark. See I watch to many scary movies and it just so happens the area I live in, well I'll just say there is a lot of weirdo's around. Even in the stand, if its getting dark out and there is deer in the field, I'm getting my Ass down out of that stand and getting to my truck.




edit: DO NOT skirt the profanity filter by using symbols, it's ass, not a$$. If it's allowed, so be it, if not we will delete threads.

Alright Magic I know you are like Ed Gein and Can all your deer meat and nothing scares you. But to me if I can't tell what is coming at me I'm going to freak out. One time a friend jumped out from behind a tree at a party and my reaction was to punch him in the face. Had no clue what I did but that was my reaction.

I generally keep in mind that I'm the meanest thing in the woods that I hunt and if there is something that makes me nervous... I kill it and move on.

No I keep them in my quiver. But usually have keep the sheath for my fixed blade knife open, so it easy to pull it out if needed especially when the wolves are a howling'.
