I feel like a kid on Christmas eve. Trying to be productive at work but all I can think about is flinging in arrow into my target buck.

If with you. Kinda sucks I cant hunt my main lease with the rain, but they need it. I will likely draw blood at one of my Bastrop places though.

Not me. When you work in an elementary and have a unit if kids that have emotional disturbances, you have to be on top of things or it can go bad quickly. Already have had one episode this morning with not so good behaviors!
Passing on this weekend also as the weather is nasty wet and is suppose to continue thru the weekend or at least thru Saturday and nothing that really gets my blood pumping on game pics.

That's me. When heading out of town, I leave straight from the office after work. Usually I'm scrambling the morning of to get packed. Not this time! Truck was all packed up last night and ready to get on the road. Just counting the hours until it's time to go.

Most frustrating of all is that boss' son leaves EVERY Friday at noon... Just because! If only...

Adding to my excitement is the fact that I'm chasing my first bow kill!!

Me--but then I'm retired and don't have a job. However, wife's e-mail (roadrunner) is messed up and she can receive but not send. Trying to deal with that---and it seems roadrunner has an internal problem and they don't know what it is.

Not me. I'm retired and will get my fill of hunting this year as I have for the last three. Mowed the yard this morning for the last time, (I hope), washed my hunting duds yesterday, gonna shoot my bow in a little while, and Sarge and I will head to my property in a few hours. Nothing coming by my bow blind yet except a couple does and fawns. One of them has twins. All fawns still have spots so the does get a pass. I do expect some pigs and I'll do my best to feed the coyotes some pork and hope they choke on it.


Sarge, though, is nervous as hell !

Rain has washed me out of my hunting lease. Hope everyone has a great time, and gets the deer they want. Got a wedding next weekend. She doesn't understand why she is not getting too many RSVP's . I told her A: it is football season, B: it is the start of deer season, C: you are having it on a Friday night in Denton, most people work on Friday and the last thing they probably want to do is fight traffic home then fight traffic to Denton. She is part of the it is all about me generation LOL
