AT TIMES, no matter how much we practice, plan and prepare, we simply cannot get things right the first time. Take my 2009 bowhunting season, for example. Despite all of my backyard practice sessions during the year, my preseason scouting, treestand hanging, and other prehunt preparations, I would have ended up with nothing more than a dull broadhead in my quiver were it not for second chances. Prior to opening weekend, the first tree I selected for my stand seemed like an excellent choice. It was a tall cottonwood near the Powder River in southeastern Montana. I had hunted successfully front that tree before, but this year it just did not work out as it had in the past.
