Default who's ready?

The water is starting to cool down and get clearer. There are still tournaments to be shot...
But some have put down their fishing rigs and picked up their hunting bows.

So who is ready to take that first shot on Oct 1? I still have to get some fletching done. I'd like to hang a tree stand too and of course the huntin clothes need to be rewashed a
nd aired out...

Ugh! I'm still not really ready...but then I guess I never am.
I got my tags, bow is shootin good, arrows flyin' true, stand is out in the yard airing out.
I just need to get the camo washed and hung out and do a bit more scouting.

I'm ready! Still have to wash my clothes but the bow's all dialed in and I hung my main stand a few weeks ago. I just scheduled a job for friday and saturday so my first day out won't be till sunday.

Don't worry; I'll have pictures all over here when I get one.
