I'm looking at Louisiana Sportsman's classifieds to see if I can score a discounted bow.
So, I thought I'd kick around the topic on here.
When do you start practicing for hunting season?
Do you have any axle-to-axle or brace height preferences? What is your reasoning behind them?

All are projected in the 16-18 range.
I'm leaning shorts w/ Johnson a very close second.
Hilton has been inconsistent.

Had any one of those teams taken care of business, we'd have played someone other than Bama and most likely would have won.
Bama had a great gameplan.
Our defense played hard and kept us in the game.
For the second year in a row, our championship defense was let down by our JJ offense.
