    Tomorrow is the first day of pistol season. Anyone besides me skipping out of work to brave the bitter cold and snow???

    Well if you ever decide to come south, I can set you up. You're just 3 hours from freedom--no excuses.

    Hey, just remind me when it's time to buy tags, and I'll hook you up.

    Well kids, I'm officially vacationing. I'm heading south tonight with my bud, and hunting tomorrow morning(if I wake up). Wish me luck. I need more venison--my kind heart gave away most of my last deer.

    Good Luck Ben, I hope a nice fat doe shows up early for you.

    A couple years back I sat all day in my stand and had three nice bucks come into range but not a single doe. One was a really nice 10 pt. that hung out under my stand for almost 5 minutes. I swear they know when it is Antlerless only......... ;)
