Default Why is this happening.

I got a brand new deer rifle for chrismas two years ago and a brand new muzzleloader last year for chrismas. I got them all ready to go (even though i couldnt hunt with them for 2 years) and was unbeleivably excited about them and couldnt wait to go out with them and hunt. Now that two years has passed of them sitting in their cases and me looking at them i can finally use them. The only thing is im not as excited anymore as i was 2 years ago....this sucks! I wish i had waited and whent out and bought them this year so that i could use them when like 2 years ago they were theonly thing i could think about. Has this happened to anyone else?

Hmm... about 5 to 7 years ago my dad used to work on a pecan orchard... that's where we did most of our hunting. The other place we went hunting was at a friend of my uncles. I got a new Marlin 30AW .30/30 for christmas (my first and only personal deer rifle), the last year my dad worked on that farm. My uncle wasn't friends with this guy anymore either so didn't have that place. I still havn't shot anything with that .30/30.

not really, i have never bought a gun two years in advance, what stopped you from using them before now, i hate to see you not excited about them, whenever i get a new gun out for the first time(sometimes a month after i purchase it) it gets me very excited, just the thought of shooting something new for the very first time, dont have any advice for you but just getting them out and looking at them usually works for me,

I have bought rifles that were not used for several years but just because I was using others. Never missed a deer season except when I was in Naum.

every time i pick up one of my 700's, the mountain rifle, the CDL or the one i built with my own two hands.... it excites me.... they feel perfect to the touch... it's unexplainable.... almost the same way my 686 feels with a strong grip on it... like a natural extension of myself... it's not the gun that excites you it is the desire to form new experiences and memories... as well as the flood of memories from years gone by... or of someone who meant something to you, whom passed that firearm on to you....
