I've had deer stare straight in my direction while wearing the blaze orange and never see me unlike say Turkey that will see it from a mile away. The key is to stay motionless. Most hunters hunt a variaty of game and some require you to wear orange. It just makes since to just throw on a orange vest over your'e regular hunting clothes.

If I'm hunting in a blind the vest comes off. I'll also take my vest off if I need it for a marker and I know I'm the only one hunting an area like my own land. Otherwise, I leave mine on until I'm back at the truck/road and need to use it for a pillow while napping/waiting on my ride or partner.

My hunting includes more naps and nature watching than actual hunting by far, since it is typically the only vacation I get each year.

There are some really nice "Trophies" but the really cool ones are of the kids. Good on you Dads. Love the dog pics too. This is one I found of my Dad and Uncle around 1976. I loved hunting with those dogs. Liz,Spot and Lady. I remember them like it was yesterday.

Quail hunting is a lost art really. The two pointers were covey dogs that found the birds. The Britney was used for singles after you split them. Some here might remember hunting like that. The coyotes,Hawks and fence to fence farming has almost made this kind of hunting obsolete around here.

I do hunt with a compound bow too, an old 4 runner, but am more extinctive with a recurve when something is moving faster than a walk. Shoot, I can hit rabbits on the run with my original Groves. BTW I have a Lyle fusion long bow too is why I asked.

No, it's a Black Widow MAII 60" @ 72#. It's been my absolute go to bow since 1990. I've shot a couple of Groves recurves and they are fantastic also. I also have a compound these days due to some shoulder/elbow problems a couple of years ago. If I can find it I'll post up a picture of a nice prairie goat I got with that bow a couple of years ago. Now that the shoulder and elbow are cooperating I am starting to shoot the recurve and longbow once again.

I wouldn't have taken offense without the Edit All wild animals do some strange things at times. I've had a very nice 10 point white tail walk up to ten feet and just stare at me while I was stalking javelina. The warthogs were quite wary where I was and I think that it probably due to the level of predation. The leopard population was significant in that area.

The young warthogs were a blast to watch and film. They would come in all puffed up with their whiskers representing faux tusks but at the first snap of a twig they would turn into whirling dervishes heading for the brush.

Very true about animals being unpredictable, and how a very elusive quarry one day can be almost like a barnyard pet the next in its behavior. I recall last fall doing some wild turkey hunting and commenting somewhere on how those critters wouldn't come within 200 yards of me, and then ShadyRascal, who lives just down the road from me, posted a pic of himself practically petting a turkey on his property. Jeebus.

I almost commented that it was a Black Widow but was not sure. The only one of those I pulled was so great I went to order one back in the early 90's. The price back then was crazy. Like everything else I guess you get what you pay for.

That said I have a top of the line Mathews with 80% let off that you can not finger shoot really buy I can split arrows with it. I thought I would like it but still pick up my old recurves when I go out hunting.
