After the alarm buzzis for 5-10 minutes at 4:00am some finally gets up and turns it off.
Go find asprin, take three because two won't work! Turn on the TV and turn to the weather channel to see wich way the wind is blowing and the temp. Turn up volume as to wake up the sleeping-beuties that didn't go to sleep until after 1:00am or after and try to wake them up. If they don't wake up right then and there then they can get there own sleepy-a$$ out whenever and not complain to me that we didn't wake them! Last year my brother didn't wake up after he went to bed at 2:30am. Well I watched about 15 deer go into the area he was supposed to be in and he wasn't there, he was sleeping!
Put on long underware, thermal sock, foot warmers, sweat-pants, fleece pants, and finally your camo hunting pants. Then five minutes after that try to sit down on the toilet without taking all of the clothes you just put on so you can do your thing relaxed! Ha HA!
Drive to your place to hunt and repeat what you did earlier and hope you brought toilet paper, and make sure your down wind of where you are hunting!
Take out sent pad and put sent on them and hope a buck don't think you are in heat!
Get to treestand and listen to the deer that are running away after you just about walk over them on your way to the stand! That's what happened to me last year!
Get in treestand, put safety belt on, pull up gun and fanny pack, hang all the stuff you want handy on you hooks that are screwed in the tree, put outer coat on so you don't get cold and look at watch every 5 minutes to see if it is shooting time yet.
Then the sun eventually light the woods and everything comes alive and then BOOM, BOOM, BOOM, sounds like the hunter missed. Sure wakes you up and your adrenilin really starts flowing! Can't wait!

    • Well there's that! 👍  
    • Speaking of lures I remembered something... Recently I have been trying to understand how to fish at night, was never really much of a fan before. Don’t overload yourself with tackle when fishing at night. Use a smaller tackle box and make use of two or three separate, small containers for all the necessary items like hooks, weights, small bait etc. Night-fishing success means not using bright lights and being very quiet. I feel in love with my new glow in the dark fishing lure, it is so underrated, there are quite a lot of these glow in the dark lures at places like Amazon and such. According to veteran fly-fishermen trout that are all but impossible to catch during the day will be more likely to hit at night. Why? Because these fish are nocturnal feeders. They venture out from under the logs and out of the deeper holes to feed in the shallows. Of course, when you’re seeking trout or other shallow feeders at night you’ll have to take extra precautions to stay safe. So far I've been doing good with my night fishing adventures.
    • My "BROWNING STRIKE FORCE SUB MICRO" was a dream. It really stands out for its exceptional daylight clarity and amazing battery life. The images this game camera can capture put most 12MP cameras to shame. It also uses power very efficiently, even with heavy use of video – especially if you install a set of lithium batteries.  You can expect several months’ use out of them which is even more impressive when you consider that it runs on six AAs, instead of the more common eight.
    • They only have 2 options in life: 1 - get hunted. 2 - get ran over.
    • Crazy thing just happened to me while fishing off my dock... Was throwing a topwater, not paying attention, and SPLASH, I set the hook and nothing there. As I was reeling in to try that spot again, I heard something in the big pine next to the dock, but didn't think anything of it. Recasted and heard something again, turned my headlight on in time to see an owl heading to and then kinda hovering over my lure...  I thought that was weird... A couple casts later I hooked a small bass.... Then I lift it out of the water and as I'm reaching for it, the crazy owl swoops down and about hit me as it tried to nab my bass!!! Holy $#!+ I said out loud and decided to go up the hill before I got attacked. But not until I got pics and videos of the brave bird.  Last summer I had a very similar up close encounter with a great blue heron and a crappie, right at dusk with a heavy fog coming in... Not sure which one surprised me more!!
