The 2013 bow season has long since passed and continues to fade away into the distance. So now that it is 2014, it’s the perfect time to contemplate your season and how everything went. If you are one of the lucky ones who got your prize, we congratulate you on your accomplishment. If you didn’t get what you were looking for however, the 2014 season probably can’t come soon enough. Ending a bow season on a disappointing note happens to the best of us unfortunately, so the key is to move on in a productive way. Assess the situation, figure what happened, why it happened, and what you are going to do to make sure it never happens again.
There are plenty of mistakes that can lead to missing out on your target. For example:
- You simply missed your shot
- You gave away your hideout
- You were hunting the wrong area
- You never got the opportunity to shoot
No matter what your mistake may have been, the important thing is that you identify it and then decide what you are going to do differently in the 2014 bow season. The solution may just be that you need a little more practice in the off season. If you need some great ideas on how you can accomplish this, you can check out our post on the different offseason activities you can participate in to stay sharp with your bow.
So while you are looking back over your last bow season and planning for the next, consider some of these thoughts to help 2014 be the best year in bowhunting you’ve ever experienced.
- Did you get the buck, or whatever other target, you were after in 2013?
- Is whatever you are after still out there, or did someone beat you to the prize?
- What changes are you going to make in 2014 to ensure this year goes better for you?
