Default I have left the dark side!

Well I killed a big bodied buck Monday with my ex-virgin shotgun so I have meat in my freezer, once I finish butchering him I will be back in the woods with my bow, I have a prime spot where one of my daughters and I had a doe within 20 foot feeding for 10 minutes when it was bucks only and also where I killed this buck to set up with the bow. I will admit that I kind of felt bad killing that buck with a gun, but hey it is meat in the freezer.

congrats Taz. I can't seem to get from the dark side myself. I look at my bow every morning then my gun then my bow then my gun etc................... I end up grabbing the Ithica deerslayer and humbled I enter the woods. Tonights the night though. I have one of those "feelings". Go get one with your bow. Heck why not?

Nice going Tazman. I am still on the dark side but I'll be firing a retro-rocket this afternoon, hopefully! My son, Joe keeps hoping and praying for my successful re-entry. I told him that my heat shield is a might charred from my last encounter but I'm confident she"ll take the heat.

Congrats Taz! Glad to hear you've now got meat in the freezer. The bow buck is coming too, just might take a little longer!

Dark side, light side, what ever. All I know that I am headed back home from over seas work for a month of God, Family and HUNTING. I will be using my Bow for this venture. I used my rifle last time I was home and was scored twice. A big fat doe and an eight pointer. I am headed to Texas for five days of bowhunting. Can't wait!

Congratulation Taz. For a second there I thought you meant that you stopped shooting a Mathews...

Well, the dark side season is in here but Len and I went out with the sticks this morning. I drew a blank. Len saw about 8 but they never came closer than 40 yards and there was always a limb in the way. They were serenading us with the firesticks all morning though. None closer than a quarter mile though. Some of those boys are going to have to take a break at lunch to buy ammo. Nice frosty morning here. The only thing that came by me was a scrufty fox and a lady walking her dog. She did have on her blaze orange though. It was the landlord of the place. No guns allowed around the place. I guess she's just playing it safe.
