Default Anybody getting ready?

The trad board has been quite lately. It's getting that time. Is everybody making sure your setup is fine tuned and ready to go? This will be my first year to carry traditional tackle into the woods. I want to try and hunt exclusively with my recurve all year. Who else is hitting the woods with the stick and string?

I've been shooting my bow and plan on setting up a couple ladder stands this weekend but I won't be doing any hunting this year during bow season. Gotta have surgery on September 27 and will probably be down at least 6 weeks.

Best of luck dude and hate to hear that KM, hope you have a speedy recovery. But to answer the question, I am beyond ready. I've been trying to shoot my bow everyday for about 3 weeks now.

Hate to hear tha kmbrown, hopefully you'll have a speedy recover. The deer and hogs in your area can breathe a sigh of relief.. Glad to see someone else is ready Cmane. Hopefully we can keep the board fired up with pictures this season.

I've been ready but will get a late start because of vacation till mid October. Been shooting almost daily the past 2 months and start each session with a cold shot broadhead arrow. Good luck to everyone and let's keep this trad section active during the season.

I have pretty much everything ready to go on the equipment side...most of my time now is being spent scouting and working around the camp site. Looks like the year will start with my Black Widow recurve, Gold tips, and Bear Razorheads (vintage)

I am ready. The wife and I will be going in the morning. She will be shooting her Northern Mist Baraga Longbow with carbon arrows and Bear razor heads. I am using Pronghorn Longbow with Heritage shafts, Simmons Tigershark heads. I have been doing a lot of scouting the last several weeks. Nothing looks real good, but it will be a blessing to be in the woods.

Kevin; hang tough brother. You will be hunting before you know it. Hopefully we can make a hunt together this year, I am planning on it. Get well soon!!!!

God bless.
