Default Countdown NY!

Well some of us anyway in NY are still waiting for the bow opener on the 17th...which is in 12 days!!

Who all is ready? Anything left to get ready?

Just need to put my broadheads on, do any final sight adjustments with those...hang the camo outside...and set up my backpack!

Hope it doesn't rain on the opener!

That is what I have to do exactly. Been shooting for the last 1.5 months.

Bow is tuned and on, and the sonics are ready to eat on the 17th,

Sighted in my brand new Knight long range hunter yesterday. Once bow season comes along there is never enough time for much else, so i figured i better get it done now.

The 17th can't get here quick enough. Usually it's archery firing me up around this time of year, but this year I'm spending 17th-23rd muzzle loader in the High Peaks near Saranac L:ake. I'm camped less than 1/2 mile from where I took the buck in my avitar.

The past three weeks I've left home 3am on Wed, drove three hundred miles, spent 3hrs hiking, 5hrs scouting, crashing, then home by noon Thursday. There is the most sign I've seen in years on the 20,000 acre Primitive Land I hunt. Camp is all set up minus some odds & ends I'm canoeing in tomorrow. Can't friggin' wait
