I

Old School

T happens
to many of
us who have
hunted deer for
decades. We hit
a point in our hunting pursuits where
we start thinking maybe I have enough
stuff; maybe I don't need the latest or
greatest hunting gear or gadget to hit
the market.
Since I've always been a little reluctant to spend my money - let's just
call it a Pennsylvania Dutch thriftiness
passed on by my grandfather, it's probably not surprising that I reached this
epiphany sooner than some. But not
too late that I ended up filling the rest
of the attic and basement with gear, or
forcing my wife to have a covert sportsmen's yard sale when I was at work.
No, about 10 years ago, I had finally
come to the realization that I had too
much. Too many deer calls and rut
attractants. Too many hunting jackets
and hoodies that differed only in camo
pattern; it appeared I was making
more of a hunter's fashion statement
than becoming stealthier. There were
too many hats, face masks, lamps and
lights. Too many broadheads, arrow
rests and sights. Too many dust collectors: deer drag systems, hoist ropes, bow
holders and, of course, boot blankets.
The curse of cold feet deserves every
consideration!
It was time for me to streamline with
an eye toward necessity, but if, in the
process, I reduced the burden of hunting on my wallet and back, well, that
would be fine, too. I finally came to the
conclusion I was going to jettison some
of this superfluous stuff and work with
what's led to plenty of success. Now, I'm
sort of retro hunter; old school.

Today, I hunt with an old Browning Mirage Hunter with a one-pin
fiber-optic sight, an old Golden Key
Futura 3D Silent Rover arrow rest and
a kisser button. I load up with Easton
Super Slam arrows tipped with good
old 125-grain Thunderheads. I can't
be bothered with multiple sight pins,
graphite shafts and expandable heads.
