Season opens Sat here in VA. I can't wait but I must admit that I'm behind where I should be for the season. Just shot my BH yesterday. The Rage's were spot on but the Spit Fires were grouping to the right about 3" at 40 yards.
Also have two places yet to take a peak at before I go in. :embara:

We're trying to get the house ready to sell so I've been busy with that.:rolleyes:

Bo Bob,
If you ever need a hunting buddy in Lynchburg, give me a shout! haha!

You better believe I'm ready. Got a couple days off of work scheduled here and I might possibly take tuesday off as well. I was hoping to get a stand hung this past weekend, but wasn't able to get to it.

Good luck everyone!

All stands hung and bow is shooting great.
We picked up another farm this year so we have some new possibilities there.
Good Luck to everybody.

Finished all the prep work to the farm last weekend and now I'm just keeping busy shooting every evening. Slick tricks are flying okay but my Shuttle T-Locks are flying spot on to 35 yards so I'm feeling very comfortable with them. Peas, wheat and oats are pushing up in the food plots so they should be good in about 3-4 weeks once they start harvesting the rest of the soybeans around me. Looking forward to it and good luck everyone!

Had trouble with my Slicks shooting right as well. Buddy of mine like the Shuttle T's, in fact he's in Illinois with them right now (or at least driving there right now).

For some reason the Slicks shot well out of my old SBXT but out of my new Elite Aigil they are not flying as well. Don't know if it's just me or what but my Shuttle T's are flying better than before so that's what I'm going with on opening morning. They are a bad head I can tell you from shooting some hogs in Texas with them.

Can't imagine the KE you get from that bow.

Any of you guys in the earn a buck section. The one county I hunt in is. Wish they would put a point restriction on the 2nd buck as well.:rolleyes:

I am, my spot is in Loudoun county. Been out once for the early doe season. Too hot. I like the earn a buck and wish they would put a point restriction as well. But I am in the minority on that. Most just want to kill it if it has horns.

Yea, I can't quite understand the need to shoot anythign with horns. If you looking to simply fill a freezer a doe does nicely and it would help thin the does more in this area.
I'm not talking big restrictions either:
2nd buck - at least 3 points on one side.
3rd buck - at least 4 points on one side.

Guys will bulk againist this (some guys any how) but they won't complain when big bucks begin to be taken or seen on the following years.

My $0.02.:rolleyes:
