Today is the first day of.....
Me spending all of my extra time being perched in a tree stand. Today is the start of Ohio's archery season.
I hope I see a big ol' corn and soy fed buck tonight. Even if you don't get a shot at a big deer it sure gets you fired up for the rest of the season. It makes it much easier to sit there hour after hour if you know big deer are around and you have a chance. Not seeing deer is very demoralizing and leads to a poor mindset. If you don't think you are going to get a buck then you often leave early or don't go out at all. This is usually a self fulfilling prophecy.
Just like most things in life, a positive mindset equals success while a poor outlook often leads to failure.
