That's a hard task in georgia. Easier on private land though. The one I shot last year was 3.5. I would have bet my paycheck he was 5.5 when I saw him coming up. I don't regret it though. You pass up a big buck on public land and someone else will pull the trigger on him.
I understand the feeling of lacking purpose. I think you could do more here than over there though. Life can change quickly and you could find that purpose here tomorrow. Whatever you do , do it for you. You are getting long in the tooth and deserve to feel good about your life.
Lesson learned without losing money. Turned out ok. I learned many years ago to not use a debit card for most things. Fighting to get your money back is a ****er. Cash or credit. It's easier to dispute and deal with a bad cc transaction.
