I left the rifle at home on opening day and packed the hoyt. All the hunters on neibhoring farms pushed several deer by me Saturday morning early. By 7:00am I had seen more does than I had seen all year. This ol'girl came by about 8:00 and I let the hoyt play alittle sweet string music. She went about 50yds. and piled up. Shoot deer is fun no matter what weapon you pick, but shootin with a bow is really fun. I'd say those traditional shooters really have a good time. Got one tag left and I hope to fill it next time out.
