New bow hunter from Wisconsin
I am a new bow hunter, only 2 years, but I love it. I have harvested 3 animals to date, and am learning more every time I go out.
My husband (Stretch) and I are going to South Dakota to hunt mule deer in October. Along with hunting white tails here in Wisconsin I am hoping to harvest more animals this year. We did go to Iowa last year and I was able to do a spot and stalk on a Texas dall ram. We each harvested a ram, but mine was bigger and more handsome so mine is mounted and in our living room.
We are in the process of planning a safari in South Africa for August 2014. I am very excited for this adventure. I have started working out with my weights and will do a lot of practicing before then to get my bow weight up.

Welcome aboard Packsy from a fellow stick-flicker. I live just north of your next hunting destination in North Dakota. Mule deer are my passion. Unfortunately the population in ND has taken a real hit in the last three years - I hope you have some good luck down in SD this fall.
