      I was at the ranch yesterday stump shootin:

      At least they both start with an “S” 😀 Think I shoulda looked a little closer, that “stump” was a little greener than I thought:(.

      Then it looked like it might rain so I thought I’d better get out of there before the flood.:D

      Yep Doc, some of the best things I’ve got to say to the world are probably best heard by my ears only (except for one good TN friend:wink:. )

      This will always brighten up one’s day though.

      I don’t think I want to see (or smell) the inside of your quiver, Ralph. 8)

      But that country sure looks like it would be a lot of fun to wander in. Thanks for taking us along!

      If nothing else is showing signs of life yet at least the wild plum thickets are blossoming out. Hope they make fruit this year, deer love’em.

      Bruce, nice to have sagebrush to wipe arrows off with. Smells like sage poop in my quiver now.

      Nice pics R2.

      I would love to put TX on my list to visit/hunt one of these days. My wife might even tag along because it would be one of the warmer places to go.8)

      Nice pictures Ralph! But just looking at ’em makes me thirsty for a glass of water. I hope you get a little rain this year.

      Our wild plumbs are in bloom right now too, but the fruit always disappears before it gets the size of a pea. I don’t see any birds eating them. Figure they just fall off.

      One of my first lessons in bowhunting “There ain’t no such thing as a chip shot” happened many moons ago as a result from a plum thicket adventure.

      I was sitting on my butt in the middle of the day just enjoying the world when a small muley buck wandered into a plum thicket about 20 yards away. He was standing there chowing down and my brain goes into the “Ha, fool, you’re mine” mode and I shot right over his back. It didn’t take him long to figure there was something really bitter about those plums and he bugged out quick.

      Me, duh!!!!!!!!

      Never think about the shot, just think about the spot [u]you’re gonna hit[u]. Works better.

      Ain’t that the truth. When I let me brain get in the way of my shooting, everything falls apart. Look at what I want to hit, push the bow straight it, get ahold of that grip, don’t over-analyze it, and it all comes back together.
