Gentleman & Ladies;

I have to share....Last Friday I went bow hunting. I am in East Texas and was hunting public land on Wright Pattman Lake. The weather was miserable for hunting, hot, humid, and there were 1X10 to the 23rd mosquitoes with a few yards radius.

I had been in class all day working on my thesis for my MS and was really not in the mood to hunt, but a close friend talked me into it.

I climbed a tree with my climber, and had been in the tree for about 20 minutes when I saw my deer. A gorgeous 8 point. I shot him at 12 yards with my bow.

Great hunt, but I must give my friend all the credit, he scouted the area and showed me the spot.

Thanks for allowing me to share.

That is outstanding - nice to have your patience in miserable conditions rewarded like that. :) I'm off to bowhunt for whitetails & turkey in 1 hour.
