How many of y'all do it? I'm not sure if I want to in my archery stands. I do wear a harness and a life line though.

I'm of the type that is pretty staunch about "guns and alcohol don't mix" I won't have a single drink while hunting or shooting. I also don't think it's responsible to attempt to shoot an animal bow or gun while intoxicated or drinking. It will do nothing but make it harder to make a good clean shot. Save the alcohol for camp.

Beer is wonderful. Deer hunting is wonderful. Drinking beer on an afternoon hunt is wonderful.

Yes Please

A person should know how many beers they can have before they become an idiot, if you become an idiot on 2-3 beers you don't drink enough cheers

I really enjoy about two ice cold beers while I'm in my blind.
