Default Do you ever get lazy?

I've scored twice this year. A small doe during bow, and a nice button last week. It's 20 till 6 and Ihavn't even put my hunting clothes on yet. I was pumped to hunt in the snow today but it rained instead so I'm less than enthusiastic to get out in the cold wet woods right now. I'm about to force myself to go butthe heat coming off the wood stove is mighty hard to leave.

I am there with you. It is a whopping 29° this morning. Not going. Not going. I'm gone.

Good Hunting

It can get a bit tough when you've already put in a LOT of hours during the season, you have a full or nearly full freezer, firearms season have been underway for over a week, and it's cold and rainy. I hunt for fun and I don't enjoy the bad weather. I'll put up with it if I haven't scored yet or the rut is underway, but late in the season, I'm likely to turn off the alarm and roll back over.

I'll admit it I get lazy. The thing with me is that I hunt every available hour of daylight during bowseason which was october 15th - November 17th this year. I put so much work in mentally and physically during this time. Then gun season hits and that runs from november18th - december 9th. I hunt hard the first week of gun. After that I am spent and the deer are gone. I get a little lazy yes. Start getting later into the woods on afternoon hunts and strangely light when walking to the stand in the AM.
I think the lack of deer sightings adds fuel to the laziness fire. And the difference between the way things are during bowseason and how it changes the first hour of gun is almost depressing. But I'll stick it through to the end even though it's an excersisse of futility these last few days.

Get lazy?...don't we all?

I am like some of you. I shot a fat doe with my bow on Oct.1 (upstate NY bow opens the first!) Then on November 1, I shot a spiked buck with a rifle. Wife complains we have too much venison for just the 2 of us...but I am gobbling it up pretty fast. I remodeled my kitchen this summer...everything new...cabinets, sheetrock on walls and ceiling, rewiring, new appliances, everything. Well, I didn't get all the trim work around windows and baseboards done before hunting season...so I am playing catch-up now...instead of hunting. Today, I was walking from my shop to the house with some lumber when I saw four large deer on the other side of the road. I saw them so briefly that I couldn't say for sure if one was a racked buck. As I contemplated heading out for them, my dear wife reminded me of my promises and my priorities. I am just like most guys...I get a little lazy about my hunting when I have been successful...but just give me a glimpse of some venison on the hoof....that re-ignites the fire and I am ready to go again!

This Morning I was very much lazy. I got up hoping for the white stuff laying on the ground but turned out to be nothing rain...I sat on here for a while reading some new post and thought I better go rather than just reading about it...Plus I am empty handed so far this year and time is running out...
