Family of course, guests, and good hunting buddies all get preferred treatment. I've been on both ends of the deal and it is a good feeling all the way around.

I'd nock Izzy down and step on his head to get a shot at a pig though. [archer2] He's a stone cold killer and that's the only way I'd get a chance! [laughing]

Gregg wouldn't have to knock you down. Just sleep in the same room and his snoring will keep you awake, then you'll be asleep when the big one comes along!

Sharing in the moment is just as much fun. Really.. Who cares who releases the arrow. Or makes the kill. I get just as much satisfaction, maybe even more. Being in the moment. Is so much fun.

Gave my brother my best spot a couple of seasons ago. He hadn't hunted in years and I really wanted him to have a chance. The arrow deflected and that giant 10pt lived to see another day but my brother had a blast and getting him that shot was almost as fun as having had the chance myself

And having you along is making me look forward to this trip far more than if I were going alone. Whether an elk comes home with us or not, we are in for one fine adventure Paul!

Me and my buddy I share a lease with are always arguing over who is gonna hunt "the spot". Both of us telling the other to go there. I really believe that when it is your turn, it happens, and when it the other guys turn, it happens for him. It is just as enjoyable to hear my friends tell the story of how the hunt went to me as it is for me to be telling them that story to them.

I usually take the best spots for myself..I once hid Marty's armguard so when he came in late, he would push the deer my way. I had Barry tell me which stand he thought Gene would use opening day and I got up early and put my pin on it.

[biglaugh] now that my man Biggie has broken the ice...

Its funny, about this time every year the lies between my brother and I begin. Each trying to get a grip on what the other has been up to and where we've been. Each season I have to outwit the whitetail and a snot nosed little brother. [smileystooges]

Just this past weekend I made numerous tracks through the fields just to keep him away from the spot I've been watching. I've also been known to make fake rubs and scrapes to throw him off. Is that bad of me? I like to call it Defensive hunting 101.

I have a family of friends who are able to hunt (and police) my family's farm far more thoroughly than I am. I am happy to leave the antlers to them (unless the temptation presents itself too directly) and try to harvest does for management. Any deer with a bow is a trophy to me, and small game/varmint hunting is as good a time in the field (generally with more opportunities to shoot).

I did and my hunting partner does that for me too.

He is planning to join me on a Alaska DIY moose hunt because I would like to do it. He has no interest in a moose. I know the minute he sees one of those monsters with a giant rack his juices will start flowing and that will change.

If he finds a big buck he is excited and can't wait to get me on it, I do the same too. Only he happens to find more big bucks than I do, ha!

On a recent elk hunt I was having a ball bugling most of the time and getting answers, as he closed in on the bulls.

A good hunting partner with common goals that gets more excited if you score than him, is worth his weight in gold.
