Awesome!  I haven't counted

Awesome!  I haven't counted the days until archery antelope opens here in CO, but it is probably about the same number of days away as your seasons, and then archery deer here opens a week or two later.  I am trying not to count because sometimes that seems to make it seem like it takes longer for the season to actually get here.  Good luck!  We are getting closer to that most wonderful time of the year.

I'm going to take a class in

Dancing I'm going to take a class in archery... I don't think that will get me ready for archery hunt but it'll for sure give me an idea if I have the arm for it.

Well Vermonster, we're down

Well Vermonster, we're down to a few days until rifle season begins.  Today my grandsons and I finished our gearing up shopping spree.  We're ready.

This afternoon we sighted in our rifles for the final time.  

I've got a nice 3 point I've been studying for the last few weeks and I think we have a good chance to bag him.  We'll see.  It will be my oldest grandson's first hunt, as a hunter that is.

Sept my 2nd oldest grandson, he's 10, will be able to take his .20 gauge and hunt dove while my oldest grandsons is hunting deer, unless he's already bagged one.  

Dove and Venison... yum yum.  :)  

Oh, and the pigs have returned.  Who knows?  Dove, Venison, and perhaps Bacon? Big smile - JamesJM

I'd love it.  Place I was

I'd love it.  Place I was going to hunt pigs has suspended hunting, with no end in sight.  I went and moved a trail camera the other day, and brought my gun in case I ran into a pig.  Didn't see any though.

We're going to try 'blind'

We're going to try 'blind' hunting this year.  Not exclusively from a blind, but I want to give it a try.    Since I'll be teaching my grandson's how to hunt I want to try various methods.  Blind hunting, stalking, etc.  I'm not as concerned with actually bagging a deer as I am in teaching them how to hunt, learning deer and their habits and tendencies.  

We'll be a little restricted in 'time' because they both are in school, obviously, and play football on Saturdays.  Our trips will be leaving after the games Sat. and arriving late... early Sunday morning hunts and with luck maybe Sunday Evenings... fortunately my ranch is only about a 1.5 hour drive from hom so their Mom can be sure they'll be in bed on time for school on Monday. <smile>

Good luck!  Keep me up to date and I'll do the same. - JamesJM
