Default Drove 2hrs to realize I left arrows at home

Yep. Iím a dummy. Just made the drive to Eastland. Got to ranch, all excited to hook up my GoPro to the bow and film a hunt. And............... thatís when I realized I left my arrows and quiver at home. Talk about ******! I have one of those double bow SKB classes that you canít really fit a quiver or arrows in with a bow. You can sure bet Iíll be macguyvering the crap out of that case to ensure this doesnít happen again. Bright side is I brought along an AR to chase some
Pigs with so Iím not completely hosed.

Hopefully this wind will lay down so some critters will start moving to make
Up for the crappy hunt so far. But hey, Iím in the woods and not at work!

Here's one for ya. Went to POC duck hunting this weekend. The buddy with the boat shows up at the house in POC about 6pm. He drove in from Marble Falls. Drops the boat and heads back towards home. He forgot the GPS for the boat! His wife met him in Gonzales with the GPS, which helped. He ended up back in POC around 11pm. He drove over 10 hours Friday!

Reminds me of the morning I tried to draw my bow with fingers. Realized real quick that hurts. Made the 1 mile walk back to the truck to get my release. 3 mile hike before the feeder went off .

My Dad forgot his shotgun once going duck hunting; was only about a 30-minute trip back to house, luckily. A friend forgot to load his gun quail hunting -- first covey gets up and everyone shoots. How many did you get Bob? Uh, I didn't shoot. What do you mean? I forgot to load my gun after lunch.

Not perfect, but have tried to learn from the above by having a short checklist: license, weapon and bullets or arrows before putting truck in gear.

Fix a quiver mount on the outside of the case and hook up your quiver there---and flywise's advice is great.

Left my quiver at the house one morning but hustled back and grabbed them and was back in stand in about 20min

Benefit of hunting behind the house

But you can bet when I am going on a trip I check the "must haves" several times before leaving

Went last weekend and forgot everyÖ singleÖ broadhead. Not to mention I forgot to buy a new license after it expiredÖ not my finest moments and caused me to miss a morning hunt where a shooter buck came in as well as a huge boar.

Ended up eating a tag sammich that weekend.

Couple hundred dollars later and a missed hunt taught a valuable lesson.

Check yo s***!!!

My son and I drove to southern Colorado for a elk and bear hunt. We got to the place we were to meet a group from KC Mo. When we went in the store to buy licenses the guy tells us a gal called to leave a message for one of the guys from KC that he left his arrow box!! I made a sign and held it up when they drove into the parking lot. It said "ARROWS $100 Each". They all wondered what it was all about until they went inside to buy their licenses. I had already found a archery shop for him to buy a dozen arrows.

Yea it happens, When I was 17 I got up headed out to the prime public land in PA, got to the parking spot first so I know I'm getting my best spot, look at my arrows no broad heads, go home get them and head back, 4 trucks sitting there 1/2 after sunrise, walk into the woods all ****** off at myself and stand by a big oak and 30 min later a 8 point walks by and I hose him. Funny that was 39 years ago but I can't remember last week.

I forgot my release opening morning in 93. Told my buddies I would probably see the biggest buck and not be able to hit it. As luck would have it, I killed a basket 10 at 18 yards using my fingers.
When I got home I tried using fingers at my target at 20 yards. I totally missed the target.

Ha Ha,been there. Got halfway to the lease one Friday night and realized I forgot my release after sitting in traffic for 45 minutes. Back home to pick it up and on to the lease. No traffic now. Bought a spare when I got back. But I still seem to always FORGET SOMETHING!!

Got a muzzleloader to take advantage of the late muzzleloader season. I treated it like I do my bowhunting gear since there are so many accessories that go with a muzzleloader and got a tackle box so I wouldn't forget anything. Got to the lease, got dressed, pulled out the gun; powder-check, primers-check, bullets-back at the house.

I don't feel so bad now listening to these stories. I was in Amistad two weeks ago and about 200 yards from my truck I realized I didn't have my release. Spent almost an hr backtracking and going through my pockets and truck. No luck. I had to run to Wally World and pick up a new one. Neatless to say I missed the evening hunt.

After a morning hunt 2 years ago, I set my bow on top of the tool box while I changed out of my hunting clothes - then drove off. When I realized what I had done, I drove back to the scene and found my bow lying in the sand in the middle of a tire track - my own. Good 'ol PSE just needed some new arrows and camo duct tape on the quiver and it was good to go.

Never forgot arrows or release for that matter.

With that said, one time a buddy and myself towed a boat a couple hours down to Port O'Connor only to find out at the ramp, we had forgotten the boat keys.

Talk about a long drive home.

I have arrows behind the seat of my truck and a release in the console. Learned the hard way.

Drove 3 hours to the coast for a late night kayak trip with a friend that I invited to go. Unloaded everything to find I left the paddles at home! Stores closed nothing we could so, drove three hours home.

When I was guiding duck hunts we were half way to the blind on the marsh buggy when one of the customers asked why I didn't hunt with a dog. Lol whoops. Left her in the truck. Had to run down the levy and get her. Felt like an idiot

Here's my list and I have it memorized.
- bow
- arrows
- release
- flashlight
- corn
- phone

Simple yet inclusive of the basics.

I always keep a couple arrow and my quiver in my bow case, then have an extra arrow case with my arrows and tools. The release is strapped to my bow all the time when it is not being shot. There is always a chance to forget something that screws up a hunt,knock on wood I have not had it happen to me YET!!!
