Late Friday evening, I managed to shoot a doe on public land in Tennessee. By the time I found her it was twilight. It was then I realized my headlamp was not in my backpack. So field dressing was mostly by touch, not by sight. I haven't field dressed a deer in over 30 years. Luckily, I only nicked my hand three times. Then it is a 3/4 mile walk back to the truck to retrieve the deer cart, walk back to the deer, load it, and haul it back to truck.

In Texas, I would have been sitting in a blind, hunting over a feeder. If I shot one, I could drive my Ranger up to it, load it, and take it to to the barn for proper cleaning. The barn has a winch and water and light. Plus the barn fridge is right there as well.

I do miss hunting in Texas.

A lot of states have special rules and allowances for people who are disabled. In Texas, those rules apply to everyone.

Are you suggesting that everyone in Texas is disabled in some way or another?

No they just hunt like disabled people, not that there is anything wrong with that.

Sounds like good exercise. Maybe a little more preparation for next time and it will go smoother.

How about you and I posting up the bucks we both killed spot and stalk hunting? Mine will all be from a low fence free range ranch native mule deer and white tail in Texas. And I invite other members to join in so you can show us how itís done.

I like my laid back, easy Texas hunts, but itís a lot of fun and very satisfying to bust your hump on public land, too.

I like duck hunting as much as the next guy, but it's a pain in the asss. There is somthing to be said for dove hunting. You don't need camo, waders, a boat, calls or decoys, just a lawn chair and a shotgun. You don't even freeze your butt of while doing it.

Don't need a lawn chair either, but I guess that is how disabled people might do it. roflmao

Time and place for both

I like sitting in a pop up watching my feeder bow in hand during early season and I also enjoy sitting on a ridge looking for animals I may have to walk a mile to in order to get a shot
