A strong body makes the mind strong.  As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball and others of that nature are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks.

Anybody out trying yet?  Ive thrown in the towel on idaho, and decided rather than hunt deer in washington this year im going straight to lion calling.  Starting tomorrow.  Hoping to give a big cat a ride home in my rental car.  The thing i signed just said no pets.  :chuckle:  just changed scopes on my lion gun again, happy with this one.  Zeiss conquest v6 1-6◊24, should be just the ticket.  Trying to decide where im going to start tomorrow.  Little rental car cant go the kinds of places my yota could, so my options will be quite limited this year.  Not like a guy needs to get deep to find cats though.

Thatís an understatement especially for you. You should just start in your backyard from the looks of a lot of your pictures

My property is steep and brushy.  Most of it behind my house is either doghair fir patches or head high tangles of oceanspray.  Not really ideal for calling.  Ive tried a few times though.  Heard a yote howling in the creek across the road this summer middle of the damn day.  Went out to my driveway and howled once, expecting nothing, and the dumb thing crossed the road and ran straight into my neighbors large well manicured lawn broad daylight.  Blew my mind.  Wasnt ready to shoot as i didnt think hed be bold enough to come in like that.  Tried to head pop him (grabbed the closest rifle when i heard him howl which happened to be a .22 wmr.  Figured i better head pop him) and whiffed at 100 yards offhand.  If i thought i actually had half a chance to call him across the road into the wide open mid day id have grabbed a real gun that i could have just center massed him with, without worrying about holdover.  :bash:

Snowing, think I'll hit it tomorrow.

Did some scouting tonight seeing where the deer were moving good, I'll cut cat tracks in the morning and make a play

Rattling in a buck and killing it with a bow from the ground.. you better be an absolute ninja.  Id say leave the bow at home and get serious on cats, or haul the bow into a treestsnd and be serious about deer.  Better to do one thing right than 2 things half assed i would think.
