Sitting here in my Covid quarantine watching my last day of prime time season pass me by! I do love being out there this week before the rifle season, seems to be much tougher afterwards, and I don’t hunt during. But I am not complaining, I am very thankful, I got to hunt quite a bit this year, and filled two tags, all I can get in my county. And may get in some late season hunts also a Lord willing in another county. I am still very weak but a little better. Actually got out and flung a FEW arrows yesterday. I was totally out of breath after pulling my arrows and walking back to the house, but I did it!
Good luck to all you fellers that your time begins tomorrow!

Sun rise this morning. Saw one small buck. This afternoon had 150+ at 50 yards. Him and two other bucks got to chasing a doe around. Good day

You still feeling alright?
Thanks Nock. I am doing well considering all that I have working against me. Main problem I’m still having with this stuff is extreme fatigue! It is a hard to go get the mail and walk back up to the house. Shooting a few arrows is okay if I had someone else to pull and retrieve them. But overall I feel very blessed.
By the way; that’s a beautiful picture above! Tell more about the bow, looks like a Black Hunter?

Also been hunting with this as well. Old green K mag. It’s a buddy of mines. He doesn’t hunt with. Told me to take it and hunt with it some. Hope to find one someday. It’s one of dream bows. Love that green and the white in riser.

Mighty silent among us Tradbow folks, guess it’s the rifle hunters time, I get out of the way during this time. But hopefully I can overcome this after Covid weakness soon. Gun season ends and I will be itching to go again if able. Any of you stickbow fellers still out hunting? Looks like Nock is only one showing signs of life.

I’ve found me a good one. Now the hard part. Bad as I hate to say it but I’m even going to pack a rifle.

Gotta do what he gotta do! I use to break over some in my younger days. Now I’m old and don’t own a rifle. But every one of us get to choose how we want to hunt, I’m not against hunters doing it their own way, I’m just stuck on the stickbow! Best of luck.

Sorry to hear of your situation, Carp! Been off here a while and just found this thread. Sounds like its been rough for you! Did they determine if you had the C-19 or just something like it?

Speaking of rough (not as rough as you've had it lately), a friend of mine and I camped and hunted 3 days at LBL. Bow hunted one day before the quota and then gun hunted two days of the quota. Worst hunting I've ever experienced there. I've been going down there for 2 - 5 day hunts for years and this one was THE worst for action. Three days of hunting, 1 deer seen. All I had was a doe tag and the one deer I saw was a buck! I think I either need to find a different zone to hunt in or give it a break for while! Bummer...................

I like that green too! I have an excellent K-Mag but it's in the wood finish sides/olive-gray limbs. I did however, find and bought the Kodiak Hunter in green this past summer. It's my next "kill bow" Lord willing!

I have survived again! This time it was Covid. Even able to preach again yesterday. Now that rifle season is over I may get to hunt again. Traded a longbow for a new tree stand so I got to try it out! Maybe next week.
