Issue 39 - Feb / Mar 2014

Well, it’s that time of year again. The antlers are hardening off and before you know it we’ll be hearing first the bugles, then the Red and Sika roars and Fallow grunts.

We won a Wapiti ballot, but a ballot computer glitch took it off us so now we wait on a cancellation. Ah well, there’s always next year, and we’ll get into the Reds early if nothing pans out in the Deep South..

Summing up....

With the silly season not far away, remember it’s always another hunter until you’ve gone down a mental checklist to eliminate that possibility and positively identified it as a deer, and the particular deer you want to shoot, and you’re aiming at the particular place where you want to hit it. If you always run down this mental checklist, you will never accidently shoot someone.

Don’t rush the decision, slow down and think about it before you pull the trigger!

Good luck this roar and stay safe!
