30 days gents!

I'll be ordering a new set of arrows and broadheads this week and getting them ready for the hunt. Then get my hunting kit together and start shooting with it on.

sns, I'll be taking binos for sure. I don't have a compact set, but I do use one of the chest harness deals for them.

Probably ought to edit the title, not sure who has access to do that.

Pete

Binos are a big help down there, even in the thick stuff. I use them to pick apart the vegetation as my eyesight ain't what it use to be.
I carry a pair of Leupold Katmai's that are 6x32 and compact. I know Ray has said he uses the Leupold Yosemite in the same range.
Cabela's has the Yosemite's on sale right now for around 80.00 for the 6x30's.

Sean and I went on a Road trip yesterday down to Lost Nation Archery to pick up some things. Met the owners Larry and Janice, mighty fine people, they have a nice little shop there in southern Mich.
Anyway we picked up some premium Cedar shafts,fletching, nocks and broadheads to whip up some arrows for our Hill bows. We may not hunt with them but they're definitely coming to Ray's with us.

Thanks for the input guys, and thanks for the lead on the sale! I think that is probably gonna be the pair I'll be carrying next month.

I'm a little jealous of your field trip yesterday, I've been shooting at a wheelie shop since Traditional Outdoor Supply is moving from Sand Lake down to Rockford right now. I can't wait til it's open again!

Thom actually I think you're about 50 miles closer to Lost Nation than we are. Rockford is near Grand Rapids is'nt it?

Rick, I'll be leaving the Charlotte, NC area around 6am on Friday morning for the drive down. Might be riding along side you!

Is Doug riding with you guys? If so it might not be as bad with 3 driving...

Yeah, I guess I am closer than you guys to Lost Nation. I'm just spoiled having Tom's shop only 25 minutes away (soon to be 15 once the move is done.)

The wheelie shop is working out really well for the indoor range. 30 empty lanes every night, just me an the guy with the widows, and whatever other trad guys stop in to talk turkey hunting with him.

Since I can make it back to GR by late morning Thursday, how about we revisit that idea of me catching a ride with you guys and pitching in for gas, etc? I could be to Flint by 2 or 3 pm pretty easily. If the car packing plan is too full for another guy/bag/bow I understand.

Thom I think we can fit you in. I drive a Dodge Caravan and hauled four guys and gear to N. Dakota Pheasant hunting last year.

Mike and I are going down a week from Friday to do some scouting

I have no bookings until your trip and none after until fall

Seems like no one wants to hunt when it's warm though it's THE BEST TIME to kill one so you will be having a great adventure guys

I have been telling my coworkers about this trip almost daily since march and in the end that is the only reason i was given the time off. The manager said that I had been looking forward to this to much to not let me go, but thursday was out of the question.
