I certainly hope you can get back into it next season. If so, please report how you do.Congratulations, @A J!
It's been over 2 years since I've been hunting, thanks Covid! Plus, I moved (temporarily!) from Washington to California, so I left my rifle with my hunting buddies, a pair of Lummi brothers who have taught me more about hunting in the past 6 years than I ever learned in my entire life.
Judging from the deer tracks in my woods, the place is still thick with deer. I plan on paying more attention to their movements and patterns during the off season. I'm also thinking about getting into muzzle loaders as that will open up about two more weeks of deer season (state of Michigan).
My only regret is not taking up the sport decades earlier.
