hoythunter48,
It's the excuse to get in the woods!
Seriously, after the begining of October when Deer is in, I don't shoot at squirrels unless I am out after them as I am usually after Deer. The shot at the squirrel could(and has) spooked that nice deer that I didn't see <img src=icon_smile_sad.gif border=0 align=middle>

Itch? Naw............I'VE GOT THE FULL BLOWN FEVER!!!!!!!!!!!
All I think about is hunting now, and unfortunatley my grades at the techschool I'm going to show it a little,hehehe. The only other problem I have is trying to fix a partially stripped hole wher my sights go. I've tried epoxy, and that didn't work. Since about a quarter of the threads do grab I'm going to try lock-tite. I'll know tomorrow if it works or not. If it doesn't then I'll have to &quot;quick-fix it&quot; by drilling all the way through to the other side of the riser, and using a screw with a nut to hold the sight mount tight against the riser. After the seasons over i'll take off the site, and fill the hole completley with JB Weld, and redrill, and tap the hole back again! This will be my first year bow hunting, and i look forward to it! Since I'm a machinist student, I'm even making blue prints to make a completley original no peep bow sight, and my instructor said he'll let me make in the class/shop as a project.
(It's a good thing when your instructor is as big a hunting addict as you are, hehehe). GOOD LUCK TO Y'ALL THIS SEASON!!!!!!!!!!!!
