Opinion

Listen To Life
How long is a minute?

I’m not exactly sure how long a minute is anymore.  Sometimes a minute seems longer than at other times.  For instance, I’m driving to an appointment and I’m running a little late.  The traffic light I’m approaching turns yellow, then red.  I have to stop.  A minute seems like a long time.

Or, I’m traveling and simply must stop to go to the bathroom.  When I arrive at a convenient mart and run in and the restroom door is locked, a minute seems like a very long time.

Outdoor Truths
Gary Miller
Outdoor Truths
I had been in the stand only 15 minutes when the doe appeared. When it crossed the path that I came in on, she immediately smelled an unfamiliar odor and followed it with her eyes to my tree stand. Now, she was at full alert, trying to bring into focus the blob that was in the tree. She moved to my left trying to wind me but was unable to satisfy her curiosity until I had come to full draw. I landed what I thought was a good shot. It was a little high but I was sure it did the job. Instead of a pass- through shot, the arrow stayed planted in her side. I knew this would present a few problems, but I was still confident. After nearly three hours, I left without finding the deer or even one spot of blood. My disappointment still haunts me; not the disappointment that comes from a missed opportunity, but the kind that comes because shot deer are meant to be found and are meant to supply food for the table. Otherwise it’s a needless death.
