Who's flingin broadheads? Wearing some huntin clothes in practice? What's it gonna take for the trad guys to release an arrow. I'm releasing on a doe if possible. A pig maybe, or a turkey. Saving the bucks for the kiddos. Or maybe not. Just depends on the mood. Good luck to all, and may god be you!

Just fractured the middle knuckle on the ring finger of my string hand today. Nothing serious but sore. No heavy clothes yet as that weather is a bit off. Don't like my kids well enough to let them shoot my buck. Second grandson due any day and the daughter knows it needs to happen soon if she expects me to see him before he's three months old.

Other than using the hunting bow for practice, I'm not flinging any broadheads until summer goes away. I did start shooting with the quiver full of arrows mounted to the bow. It looks like all that I need is some cooler weather and an unlucky buck to walk past. I did shoot about a dozen times with a dull broadhead last month and they fly like the fieldpoints so I probaby won't cut my target up with many more. I also cannot bear to think about wearing long pants and hunting boots just yet.

^ Chiggars much. LOL
I wear longpants but T-shirts and face mask. Like many others, I shoot broadheads and filedpoints year round. Being two weeks away doesn't change much about practice, but it sure does make me feel a bit more edgy/restless. 100 or -10 I am in. "Put me in Coach!!"

Sometimes I think the anticipation of opening weekend is better than the hunt in but there's no place I'd rather be.

Normally I'm pretty picky about the bucks I shoot, usually a doe or two. But this, I'll be shooting as many as legally allowed. Got a new tracking dog and want to get her on as many live tracks as I can.

Practicing with Broadheads now they are flying well and I am ready for the hunt. I lay dormant all year and come alive at deer season. I think the scowl is going away and a faint smile has taken it's place. Yeah !!!!

I have been flinging broadheads for a while now. Hitting just like my field points. I am more than anxious for 9-30-17. Last year my shoulder was so jacked up I could not even pull my bow so I have some catching up to do. First legal deer becomes my first target unless a pig happens by.

I'm ready mentally but still have some last minute prep work to do.
This year is my quest for FUN, the past few years I have passed some really nice (to me) deer for several reasons to young, or have a better buck on camera etc. etc. As well as progressively getting overly technical to the point it seemed like I was sucking the enjoyment out of this passion. The decision was made to get back to stick bows and just enjoy myself. It's been about 7 years since I hunted with a longbow due to having kids and work not allowing enough time to practice. But kids are a little older and everyone in the family has been enjoying shooting together in the evenings excluding the 10 month old. This year is about having fun, spending time with my family in the woods and killing stuff. Excluding a fawn with spots not much is safe and I am absolutely jacked going into season with a different mind set than the last few years. Sorry for the ramble.

Have spot checked my broadheads... still flying with FPs just like last year and the year before.

Critters should always be nervous when they are near me when I have a bow in my hand.

Shot some a couple days ago, hitting same as field tips so just waiting for season, and a little time to hunt, Trimmed fletch off a field tip arrow with a broadhead so close enough for me.
