I'll be hunting archery season with my bow, providing I can get some relief from this "golfers elbow" (I don't golf - go figure...).

During ML season, I'll likely hunt with my bow, as I'm not currently setup for ML'ing. Hope to rectify that soon with a ML handgun setup (likely an Encore; wishfully wanting a smokeless XP-100 ML ie - Arrowhead Sporting Goods).

During regular gun season, I'll be packing my Ruger 454 Casull SBH as well as my XP-100 7 RSAUM. (had originally planned to use my 6.5 Grendel AR I just put together, but going to let my son use it since it's a rifle and I want to get back to my handguns; besides, he likes AR's).

I've yet to kill a deer with a revolver, so that's kinda my primary goal this year during gun season.

Well, I have 3 months to go and unless I get some projects completed between now and then it will be my scoped Bisley in 45 Colt and Contender in 7/30. Might bring along the GeeP in 357 just for kicks as there are a couple of stands in the woods that are close shots and it is a nice compact carry with the rear peep and fiber optic front sights.

Hoyt bow then CVA Optima V2 muzzle loader pistol then S&W 460xvr. I was blessed enough last year to take a deer with each of them I hope I'm able to repeat this year. I also picked up a .35 rem. That I'll take some times to try and get one with it.

Hoyt bow, Mission crossbow, and probably an FA 44mag.

There are some well used trails between feeding and bedding areas where visibility limits shots to less than 50 yards. My 357 load is a 158 XTP in front of a heavy dose of H110. I shoot a 250 in the Bis and a 120 BT in the Waters for field edges.

Weird to be planning for hunting season when it's 103 degrees outside.

First on my hit parade this year will be the Henry 45-70, followed by the SRH .454 and CVA .243.

Then it will be just whatever I fell like schlepping into the woods that weekend.
