Re: Just curious gentlemen !
I bow hunt with a Bear recurve purchased in 1976 for $35 plus some cedar arrows. Switched to carbon arrows 3 years ago, use 3 blade broad heads. Muzzle load with a CVA inline bought for $130 in 1993. Deer hunt mainly with a 300 Savage model 99, gift from dad. Elk hunt with a Winchester model 70, 7mm mag, gift from dad. All my rifles are topped with old Texas made Weavers. My favorites are the post reticles 2.5-7x.
Lucky to be able to hunt whitetail from the house, sometimes from the front porch. No food plots, occasionally run a feeder if there are no acorns. 2 tree stands, one purchased one hand built, one ground blind. Never use scent block suits, use the wind and the rut. Do use scent eliminator spray on clothes and boots.
Occasionally buy little extras here and there like everyone does. But try to keep it simple as my main goal is meat in the freezer. But I do love to be outdoors hunting reguardless of the outcome.
Now if next week would just get here so I can apply online for next year elk hunt in Colorado.
By the way. I think I could throw an ear of field corn out front and have 20 deer on my porch. My evergreens are taking a beating this winter.
We pray our sights be straight
and our aim be true
We pray for no pain
to the game we pursue
We thank you Lord
for this land
We thank you for the sights
from our stands
We pray for safety, one and all
We pray we may return next fall
