I was thinking back to when I was in middle school, before woman,bad habits and guns.

Times seemed so peacfull back then, people thought I was crazy getting up in the dark

of morning on a saturday and turning on the fishing shows like Roland Martin,Orlando Wilson,

Hank Parker,Malcom Florence,Bill Dance then rushing my ass over to one of the the local

water holes like the CA bay area delta and then geting sh*t for coming home late sunday( I just

blamed it on my uncles, then they were on my parents sh*t list but I made it to school on

monday). I stoped fishing after my freshman year of high school but am still left with many

unforgetable moments of many fish caught and I stll have alot of my fishing gear stashed away

like penn sabers, fenwick willow sticks, flipping sticks with baitcasters..etc. Those were very

peacefull times with a rod in hand and a fish on the line.

no he means fishing with a bow and arrow, you get either a reel that hooks to your bow or something like that to hold the line then you get your fishing arrows that are specialy made for bowfishing then you find some fish to shot and you shoot through the water and real em in its fun especially when you nail a big carp or cat fish what a fight they can put up if you dont spine em

T-dad -- Dude, you NEED to get a bow if you don't already have one!  If you love hunting, it will force you to become a better predator.  Once you make your first kill with a bow, you'll be hooked forever!  Plus, it adds additional time to your season and gives you a legal excuse to shoot other critters like fish.  I haven't given up rifle hunting, but there's just something special and satisfying about taking a game animal up close and personal with stick and string!

 iagree with you ted but bow hunting really tests my patience, i dont like the waiting game for the deer to get close enough for a good shot, with a rifle you see deer you aim you shoot it dies move to another stand and repeat! that buck i killed last year was the first bow kill i have ever had and i was so glad to see that deer dead after the shot, i was affraid it wasnt a good shot but it died.

Just keep bowhunting, pyro, and you learn ways to position yourself for more high percentage shots by reading trails and other sign and looking for bottlenecks in the woods.  Besides, what would you rather do during that time of the year -- be in the woods facing tougher shot opportunities or sitting at home wishing deer season would hurry up and get here?  Since you can't rifle hunt during bow season, you might as well be out in the woods increasing the length of your hunting season.  If nothing else, it helps you pattern deer so that when rifle season rolls around, you have a better game plan.

i could be out bear hunting, or catching bass, i sit in an enclosed stand thats not move-able and its nice because the deer cant see you in there but at times you need to move a little.

I would recommend you look into one of the excellent "pop-up" style portable ground blinds that you can literally move and setup in less than 1 minute.  These are the lightweight fabric style blinds with shock corded fiberglass frames that resemble a small tent that you find at stores like "C" and Bass Pro.  A good example is the Double Bull Archery blinds, though they are one of the most expensive of the breed.  You are totally hidden in these blinds, many of which have shoot through mesh on the windows.  Don't like where you are, just fold it up, move somewhere else, pop open the blind and get inside.

 

Sorry to get OT, T-dad; back to fishing... I got heavy into bass fishing about 15 years ago and bought a bunch of nice rod & reels.  I live really close to one of the premier bass fishing lakes in TX -- Lake Fork, but I rarely went there because it was always so congested.  Now, I hardly ever fish anymore, yet I still have quite a bit of $ tied up in gear.  My hunting and shooting activities tend to take precedence over fishing, even though I do enjoy fishing.  I occasionally like to go down to the coast and saltwater fish.  One thing about saltwater -- you never know what you might reel in next!  If I lived near some good trout fishing streams, I could easily see myself getting into fly fishing.  Too many hobbies, not enough time.

you would be surprised at how little it costs to get into bowfishing for less than $100 you would be well set up.
