    Son picked me up an went an got my PA hunting license , got archery,federal stamp,migratory bird so ready I guess . went to pay an he already took care of it an would no take my money :oops: dang boy !

    He wants me to hunt with him in PA as he already got a MD buck with his old longbow . he seen a nice one the other day where we are going to hunt as he has had latter stands setup there for sometime. the boys have got some of there largest bucks off this farm over the years.

    Got the old noxtrix sighted in with my 512 EOTech with my zombies at 30yds .going to try my 1 inch cut single bevel ramcats out ,as I lean more toward accuracy than cutting width but like having both if I can . good to go I guess an just waiting for a cool down.

    Glad to hear your getting out. This weather sucks for hunting but I still like it. The deer are waiting until almost dark to come out to feed up, have only seen two bucks sparing so far, we need a har frost to motivate them and kill of the bugs.

    I havn,t been out yet either , went fishing yesterday instead an roasted till the sun went down. water temp where I go out was 81 degrees but only 70 degrees up in the moving fast water around the islands. I don,t want to go there without my son an kill one of the nice bucks he been seeing there as he put in all the scouting,work with stands . he told me to go there an I told him I,m not shooting no big buck without you there to drag it out :p

    No good deed goes unpunished. Daughter gets a job, you have to "babysit." We had to actually babysit for our 4 month old grandson, after a whole day of working the spuds. He fell asleep 2 hours late :rolleyes: , but he fell asleep when I was holding him and he wouldn't settle for the wife.:) I think I had more fun that you, Frank.;)
