    One of the range officers/trainers where I shoot offered to take me bow hunting any time. He has a big spot of land he hunts and has been bow hunting for a number of years.
    So now all I have to do is take the hunter safety class on line, and he can actually sing off on the test because he is a HS instructor in addition to being a firearms instructor. Schweet!
    He is one of those guys that focuses on the basics. None of the mega cammo stuff. He wears regular clothes when he goes hunting. He just keeps the clothes fresh and scent free.
    This guy also, on occasion, uses a suppressed 300 blackout AR pistol for deer hunting :D
    So, depending on timing, who knows, maybe I'll get to go try and bag a deer this season.

    Awesome! Sounds like a great guy to have as a mentor.

    Do it. Nothing better than sitting in a tree stand watching the critters go by.

    Cool.

    I did find the website for the on-line class. I can take that any time. Even on a slow work day while the boss is in China this month :D
    I'll have to check seasons too to see what I can do. "Short range" firearm with my VP40? Ha!

    You can still bow hunt during muzzle loader or firearms season.
