Great week slowly getting back into the groove of real life. I'm running the gym, working at the fire department, changing diapers and shooting my bow. I also am starting to feed (bait) some deer locally for my wife, she is hunting for deer this month by our home. I did get out for an evening bear hunt, it was on public and rifle deer coincided so there was a lot of hunting pressure, I even got stopped by a game warden to check my license. I am going to head up and pull a card off one of my cameras where bears frequent. I have until November 15th here in WA. Other than that, just laying low until late season deer/elk opens up at the end of November. Training and shooting are taking precedent and I am getting my reps in. DISCIPLINE IS FREEDOM.
