I also hope you have had the opportunity to get out into the fi elds and woods to hunt. The rut is in and the deer are moving. There is a little more than a month left to the regular deer season, January 1 will be here before we realize it. There will still be chances to bowhunt during the “urban “ archery season in specifi c areas in the State. After that, small game becomes the archer’s target of choice. We are approaching the Christmas season. What do you give the archer in your family for Christmas? That will depend on the type of archery in which your loved one or friend is involved. If it is “primitive” style several accessories come to mind.... fl int knapping supplies and equipment, string making material, bow making materials, draw knives, and arrow woods. If a ‘traditional” style of archery is involved then you can’t go wrong with a new supply of arrows or arrow shafts, feathers or vanes, strings and string making materials, string keepers, bow-fi shing supplies, or an arrow quiver. For those involved in “compound” styles of archery. A new sight system, an arrow rest, new arrows, a bow sling or quiver, etc. The same holds true for those that hunt with a crossbow. As you can see, there are a plethora of accessories that you can get for the bowhunter. Notwithstanding, all hunters can use, binoculars, monoculars, scent dispersal materials, wind direction materials, safety equipment, perhaps even a new log book/ journal.

Its best to take the person you are getting a bow for with you. Don’t forget the landowner of the property you are hunting. Its always nice to offer them something for giving you the privilege to hunt. It never hurts to take time to thank someone. This is a wonderful time to introduce someone to archery. Take someone new to the sport down to your local range, visit a 3-D shoot, or just take him/her range roving. The idea is to develop more interest in our sport.
