Considering it is Veterans day weekend i find it funny something that was drilled in my brain years ago in the USAF I use once again in my every day life

Adapt and Overcome

3 simple words but a very important meaning.

I told my stomach doc to go to you know where 3 weeks ago and quit taking all the meds and I have had a 95% pain free 3 weeks but thursday I ate some of Katies chilli and I decided to lay off of yesterday eve as I wanted to have a great day in the woods.
well i woke up and was hurting bad hit the crapper 2x before i left the house and 1x when i got to the woods, i figure no point in a cover scent. Crawled up in the tree about 5:30 and at first light i was hurting again. well about 6:30 i see something off to my right...deer.... buck..... decent horns
he walks in front of me at 20 yds i take aim with the savage


i was like what the heck opened the bolt.... no primer
insert various curse words
i started fumbling in my coat pocket he is walking into a thicket 15 yds he is gone
i noticed the more i fiddled the more he stopped and looked

finally got in pocket then i try to get in the baggie carrying ml bullets and primers i find one i ease it out swap to other hand thinking do not drop it i get it loaded and bolt closed
at this time he is nervous turns walks back to where he came from 32 yds 1/4 away bam he ran a bit father than i would like complete pass thru good blood trail and i got to head to the creek to take care of business
I can not eat chilli no more no ifs ands or buts

btw this is not the one i passed on hoping jason would get i was in another county

If I had saved all the money I spent on hunting, I'd spend it on hunting.

Congrats Big Guy!! You get it done!! Still looking for a shooter here............nothing but 1.5 years olds so far.
The problem in America is not that ungodly people have said yes to ungodly things, but rather that Godly people have refused to say "no" to ungodly things.
