Default Adrenaline Rush??????

I just wanted to know when everyone gets their adrenaline rush? Do you start feeling it soon as you see that deer come walking into your area, right before the shot or right after the shot? I myself don't get the adrenaline rush till I fire the gun. I don't even know why I re-load my muzzleloader. I'm shaking so bad I can barely get the pellets and bullet into the barrel. Can you imagine me trying to put the crosshairs behind the deers shoulder??!! HA!HA!HA!

I call bs on that and if it's not then you need to hang it up hunting isn't just about killing. I know ppl that have hunted for years and still get the rush

For me the rush comes when I see the deer... then I have time to get it under control and make it count

I still enjoy it,in fact I love it more then anything on this earth but I dont get the shakes or any kind of rush,and I have had encounters with bucks that would make some men brown there under britches,I only have 2 bucks on the wall and should have 9-10 maybe more but I have made a lot of mistakes hunting with junk equipment,I have done away with all the junk and upgraded to modern equipment,I never once said it was about the kill,being self employed and working part time in the spring and summer I spend days upon days in the woods,I enjoy every 2nd of it,I don't see where not getting shaky or rushed warrants hanging up my equipment.

During Archery..as soon as I see the deer...the first time I saw a hog..I was shaking so hard I couldn't stand up..I was stuck at a 45 degree angle im my legs..

Rifle this year..the rush came after the shot..the deer is down but you aint sure if he somehow squated down and ran away..or if he's really down..you are pumped..cross hairs ..forget it ..the scope is everywhere

Lol. Yeah, about the time I start thinking I've got a chance on one I start to get pretty pumped up. A few deep breaths usually calms the nerves, then POW!

I have shot some big deer and have had encounters with my fair share of Iowa monsters, but no matter how big I always get that rush feeling right after the shot. This year however, I had a clean 155"+ 8 pt that had me damn near shaking my stand off the tree. I don't get near the rush when ML comes around however.

I start to get excited when I decide to raise my rifle. When a deer comes out, I get calm and feel as if every muscle in my body is relaxed. I forget that I am cold and quit shivering, too. But dang it, as soon as I lift that rifle off of my lap......I have to remember deep, long breaths. Then I calm down and start to squeeze. Doesn't matter if it's a doe, buck, or yearling. Been this way for 20 years at 5 to 10 deer a year. But......I like it!! Wouldn't be fun if there was no rush.
