You know how you look forward to something for a long time; you plan it, dream about it and go over the scenarios in your mind? Well, anyone who knows me knows that one of the high points of my off-season is the time I spend hunting in Kansas. They also know that I carry some pretty big expectations with me when I head north out of Oklahoma. Well, I made the trip last week, got my Kansas deer and made it home safely. The weather was pretty nice and everything went smoothly, but… The truth is that I’m a little disappointed.
Everyone who knows me knows how much I enjoy deer hunting. After a long fishing season is over, this is my vacation. It’s my time to rest up and clear my mind so I’m ready to go for next year.

Now that my 2014 tournament fishing season is over, I plan on spending a lot of time with my family. When I’m not with them, I’ll most likely be in the woods hunting. That’s the relaxing reward I give myself after each tournament season. It’s a time to rest my mind and body and start preparing myself for the next season. I’ve killed plenty of deer with a rifle, but these days, I’m strictly archery. For me, it’s more challenging. These days with a gun, if you can see a deer at 400 yards or closer, he should be dead.
