    Mine is definitely on recovery I start shaking like a leaf, before that it must be all adrenaline.

    Before the shot for me, the adrenaline rush is unreal, trying to draw undetected with a pulse rate of 200 :D :D :D Then make a pin point shot. :thumbup :thumbup

    I getting jacked up just thinking about it. :D[/quote:h9v4d3xa]

    I’ll have to agree with Andy. When I see the deer and then decide I will take that deer. From that moment until the arrow is released! Wow!!!

    2008 opener is only 181 days away!!! :D I shot 8 arrows today, 6 yesterday, 12 the day before… :D :D :D I don’t want rust to grow on my shooting joints!

    To quote Andy again,

    I getting jacked up just thinking about it. :D

    I’m with you Brother.

    But after saying what I said…
    If you held a gun to my head,
    I’d hafta say, the part that gives me
    the most satisfaction is:
    Seeing my arrow hit exactly where I
    want it to hit,
    After waiting and waiting and waiting
    for that just right shot, the shot I want
    to ensure a clean kill, and I ain’t a patient
    man by nature…
    That would be the part that I enjoy most.
    Good post Kory.

    Although the whole experience is what makes
    me always wanting more. The time I enjoy
    the most is right after the shot when I can sit
    down and reflect on everything that just happened.
    I can think about what I did right, and what I might have
    done wrong and learn from it, and anticipating the
    tracking that’s coming.

    I’ll have to agree with Ronnie there. That moment is a time of pure joy. I wish I could say I experience that 100% of the time. :oops:

    I have to agree!! sitting their watching the game you are hunting coming in and hoping to get that shot is unreal!! then after the shot if it happens the time you sit their to let the animal expire the only thing I keep thinking about is the replaying over and over of the hunt up to the shot!! then the let down I realize the work that is ahead of me!! which don’t get me wrong it is still all apart of the hunt and I enjoy it but ain’t nothing like before the shot!!! :thumbup

    voted recovery…………..

    but really all of the above. its the whole package!

    seeing an arrow hit its mark and knowing that youll have a short track…………..nothing else like it in the world.

    sit down, breath, gather gear and reflect about the work that will be done. From tracking, to my given thanx, to a quick field dressing…………..home to butcher.

    look at my watch. unless it dropped right in front of me………….i calculate the wait.

    might even decide to walk up the old gravel road to tell a friend. pickup that towing sled before heading back out!

    ive been forutneate enough to have seen a lot of my deer go down within sight. the majority ive at least heard go down. that makes the wait and prep time a lot easier to handle.
