There are few things more beautiful than the view of the world from a tree stand. That moment when half of the outdoors world is waking up, and the other half is going to sleep.

You could ask 100 people in Michigan, "why do you hunt?" You would probably get 100 different answers. I do believe the one consistent answer though, would be "to recharge my batteries and relax."

It has never been about the kill, but more along the lines of the hunt for piece of mind. Michigan offer so many opportunities for us to get out, that there is little room for excuses not to.

Best of luck to all this bow season. May you have safe travels and I hope your arrows fly straight. Whatever your method of stick and string, there is room for all of us to hunt together. - Duran
