100 Mph


This trade sure is funny.

Either there is nothing, or everyone wants it done right now.

I've been swamped for 3 weeks straight, hopefully it doesn't shut off again due to crappy weather.

My fall was pretty relaxed last year, I eased right into deer season with little effort, then hibernated for a few months.

Oh god. When does deer start for you? In my area, people strat to realise in mid fall that winter is on it's way and they need to get stuff done. Works pretty good for me usually cause I go into x-mas with bags of money.

Our firearm season starts mid November. I can't bow hunt though because work is usually still going.

Most people will wait in their chimneys around here though until about the very first day they go to light a fire. And when the roof is frosted and I can see my breath I don't enjoy repointing.

I take a long 4 day weekend when duck hunt starts then it's 70hrs+ a week until Dec24. I try to get out for a weekend aft to sit in a stand after but it's rare. It's OK tho I find deer hunting pretty boring.

My deer season basically determines how much beef we have to buy the following year. This year sucked, I sat almost every day and only saw 4 deer, and shot two of them.

I usually get doe tags from whole family though and have a great time knocking them down and making a years worth of venison burger.

At least you have doe tags; no tags on Tug Hill where I hunt. We had them at my Dad's in the southern zone, until the past couple of years, now we just watch them walk by.
