Hunting--The Moment of Truth

Hey everybody; it's finally here the one time of year when every hunter is actually looking forward to getting up early( I mean really early) in the morning. This is got to be the best day of the year when all your dreams could actually come true. I'm talking about Mr. Big standing right beneath your stand and your actually in your stand with your bow just itching to release your arrow into a vital area on him. This day is going to be one for the books, one that you'll tell to your friends and family for years to come. Although it's not official yet you just have that feeling deep inside you that this has got to be the day when the great moment of truth finally happens. All this talk about one day that's finally come and I haven't even told you yet what day it is( of coarse I'm sure you've already guessed by now), naturally it's opening day of bow season here in Tennessee and I'm about as ready as I can get. Well maybe I can make just a few more preparations before I go to bed and oh yes I have two companions going along on this adventure. That's right one of my grandchildren Matthew Simmons and his school buddy Charles Parrish are going along so even though it's opening day I don't look to put anything on my tag but it could happen I guess. Clothes laid out,gear all together and ready, truck gassed up, new broad heads on arrows,stabilizer on bow, med. bag equipped and of coarse alarm set and coffee pot set and ready for an early morning. It sounds like I've got everything ready for opening day but I 'm sure there'll be something that I'll forget and before anybody brings it up I don't ever use a flashlight. Flashlights are to easy to spook the deer so I memorize the woods I hunt during my scouting to minimize spooking the deer I'm hunting. Anyway this post was really to tell everyone good luck and stay safe during this years hunting adventures and don't forget we all like to see those great photos even if they're not of your game.

We hunters are a truly fortunate bunch because we have Christmas twice a year. Still today as an adult I can’t sleep for anticipation of the upcoming hunting season and then again for Christmas, it’s the same with both, you never quite know what you get.

Hi Othmar; Good to hear from you again and your right as usuall. The only exception is that it's Christmas for about 4 weeks before the opening of the season cause usually we hunters are always needing some little something for the upcoming season.As for the sleep we can do that between hunts. Thanks for stopping by for the visit.

Heay Jon: Been a while since I've heard from you, I thought maybe you'd gone out scouting and got lost in the woods. It's always good when any of us hunters or fishers can take along a young buddy and if not for the safety factor then just for the fun of it all. Hope to see you back soon and thanks for the visit.
