Are you ready? Whatever your task is, are you ready? Once again, I’m back in the whitetail woods, looking to harvest a mature buck. Preparing to be ready, I’ve been scouting, practicing with the bow, looking at deer signs, practicing scent control, planting food plots, and viewing thousands of trail camera pictures; these all help put me in a position to get a shot at a deer.
It’s incredible how a small squirrel can sound like a heard of elephants, and a 150-pound deer can appear out of thin air. When the deer does appear, I take only the shot that I’m confident and capable of making. I must be alert, be still, and be ready! Sometimes that means not shooting – the last thing I want to do is wound the animal. I want to let that arrow fly with confidence!.
I’ve put the time in, but will I get the shot today? The final test might arrive in a few minutes, hours, days, or weeks, but I AM READY.
Get out there and enjoy yourself with confidence and BE READY!
