Not ready. I wasn't expecting to bow hunt, so I spent the summer thus far fishing and drinking beer in my free time. Nothing wrong with my shooting, the problem lies with the shooter. I've got a few weeks, but I doubt I'll get into comfortable "elk shape" by opening day.

I just moved and all my stuff is in storage because we are remodeling our "new to us" house. It was all supposed to be done by now, and I was supposed to be 100% concentrating on my trip to Africa now. As it stands, I have had much less practice than I would have liked, and feel almost like I should not even be going because of all the stuff that still needs to be done at the house. I leave one week from tomorrow, and feel like there is no way I'm gonna be ready.

Once I get there though, I know the peace and serenity of the hunt will be well appreciated!

Shooting in new and back up strings getting everything settled in along with lots of broadhead sharpening. It's that time of year when hair on the left arm starts disappearing.

Right there with you, haven't had my backpack on since May! Luckily I get a lot of exercise at work! Everything is basically procured though, so other than not getting out with my pack on all I have to do is sharpen broadheads and put my pack together. Now the monsoons are so bad I don't see myself getting up to do any of the stuff I planned either, wanted to put a treestand up by a wallow with pretty easy access, guess that ain't happening!

Various bows, but if you see me shooting, it's probably a Toelke in my hand!

My go to bow for the past two seasons still has arrows ready go. My new go to bow now has arrows ready to go and I am shooting fine. since, I will be in a maintenance stutus for a while dove and bunny seasons won't start until after i get back from our canoe trip, I am spending the next few weeks setting up a couple of newbies to traditional bowhunting. It will be a challenge to see if they can be ready to go by October's deer hunting start.
