I think I get more and more impatient every year about deer season opening. I'm up in my office today watching Arlene come ashore in Mobile.......too much rain, too hot, etc, etc. Man....I can't wait until October!!!!! :)

Don't wait for season man, just wait wait for hunting. There are lots of stuff to do before hunting time, like scouting areas, clearing lanes, fixing roads, PRACTICING, checking equipment and just getting out in the woods in general.
There is always something to do to prepare even if you can't hunt and plenty to do when season is going on.

We are lucky enough to be able to hunt year round. I wont get up to Scotland till the end of July/early August. The roe are rutting then. Still, like Iveygun says, there allways seems plenty hunting related stuff to do. It's just not as much fun as the hunting but better than lots of other things!!

Iveygun, I agree. However, I made one fatal mistake at home. I said, "Yes Dear, I agree, let's resod the backyard after I load in the 42 (yes, you read that right), truck loads of dirt (I live on the side of an incline) Man, what was I thinking!!! :lol: The good thing about it is.............well, I just can't think of any good things.... :)

those two words, "Yes Dear", will get you in big trouble. :) If they (the women folk) would remember all the "yes dears" we say all summer, maybe they would be more forgiving in the fall :)

Roebuck, while at first I think I would love to hunt year round, I don't think I'd ever get anything done around the house, if we could hunt year round.

Right now in MS, we can hunt some type of game, from Sept - Feb, then April & May. Thats 8 months that some type of season is open ... That only gives me 4 months to try & excel at my job & home life :lol:

I hear what you say gtk. Though we can legally hunt year round, the reality is that one can only hunt when one's circumstances allow, which is never as often as I would like to!! However, the upside is, when an opportunity arises, it can be grabbed with both hands and we don't have to cram our activity into a specific period.

Those yes dears will get you in trouble and take away from hunting time, just gotta go with the flow to keep peace and make sure they know that hunting is very important like in the top threeeeeeeee.

just so she knows is what counts. if she questions much , then say " you want to go with me ?" what I hear is oh its to early, I want to sleep and I say ok I'll call when on the way home.

Oh, My pet peeve is I DON'T HUNT ON A SCHEDULE. ain't no since in going if you have to keep checking the time. might as well watch football or the outdoor channel than be on the clock.

amen to that cooper.. it was HOT today.

I have to be good the closer season gets here... This year, I'm going on a pheasant hunt in kansas, the week b4 rifle season. It will be touchy with the wife, with me being gone a week, come home for a day, then hit the woods again for deer...... Ahhh... the sacrafices I make to keep wild game in the freezer :)

When I came by a bank off of Pear Orchard Rd. in Jackson today the sign was flashing 101 degrees, I don't believe it was that hot, but it sure was hot.
