The anticipation of fall

Postby Rajun cajun » Thu Aug 06, 2009 8:10 pm

My mind at work drifts towards the upcoming hunting season..........

Thoughts of sweating in bow season, hoping to get a shot on a deer, always with the promise of cooler weather getting here by the end of October!

Of whiteoaks droppiong acorns that make a loud "thump" when they hit the ground, and the anticipation of a deer coming in to steal a few before the "after dark" crowd comes to rob the ground of the sweet morsels.

Waiting on the first frost of the year, seeing the sun creep slowly over the tree tops, and the light refracting off the frost on the leaves, natures own laser show!

To hear a buck rubbing on a tree in the distance, seeing scrapes appear one morning, watching a doe come through the woods with her tail at half mast....... getting all nervous as you know a buck will be following her and show up sooner or later.

Waking up and finding water frozen in the bucket by the outside faucet...... getting in the stand today way before daylight..... hearing deer move in the dark around you, not knowing what they are.

Then after the sun rises, and the main morning chill is lessened, hearing the quiet "snick, snick" as a deer sneaks in from behind, pausing and moving slowly so the dry leaves do not give away it's position.

The smile on a kids face when they kill their first deer, seeing the pride reflected in the childs fathers face.

Hearing your family members or hunting buddies tell the same jokes around the camp fire at night, year after year, and laughing just the same.

To listen to a nine year old tell everyone about this new hunting technique called grunting! And everyone listens to him with awe and excitement, telling him they appreciate the tip, all the while making sure the grunt call in their coat is hidden well from sight.

Turkey season is over, the dog days of summer are soon upon us, the thoughts of fall and deer season is the only things that helps us maintain our sanity.
