Why am I nervous?

Doe rifle is only 10 days away here, but I've been preparing all year for long range hunting. I've practiced out to 1450 yards with success, I've developed a handload that will launch a 210 vld 2900 & shoot under 1/2 inch at 300 yards, I've shot over 1,000 practice round, I've got all the good equipment I didn't have last year (leica 1200, exbal, exct.) but I still feel nervous, and excited. I don't know why.

Man if you didn't get excited, it quit being fun and it's time to stay home.

Shooting targets is one thing....shooting live animals is completely another.

Nerves and anxious anticipation are normal. Find a way to settle your mind....breathe, hold, squeeze, boom!

Its a good thing.

I slept fitfully last night and all I was anticipating was shooting where other people could see my results. It was kind of like the "first day";)

but that wore off when my first shot was a miss by a wide margin.:(
