I love rifles,and love to shoot, but I am a bow-whitetail hunter first.
ALabama deer season comes in 15Oct and runs till the end of Jan. Two deer a day limit.......no kiddin!
I've bought a dozen and a half new arrows and am shooting my light bow regularlly in the yard. In search of a new bowsight for the fast, heavy bow.
Buy the end of the season, I'll have climbed 40-50 trees.....sometimes with lots of venison, others not so much. Good Lord I love it to a fault.
But lots of hot weather 'till then.
