This was the first time I haven't removed the sling when on stand, but was a little down about my chances for a deer today. It was very bright and windy, so didn't really have a good feeling about the situation and was very surprised when the deer came to challenge the call. You can bet it won't happen again.
People are like rifles. Some are tried and true, having great eyes, personality, and fun to be with. Others never seem to hit the mark with you. Still others go off half-cocked. Still, it's nice to know most of them.
