Can't wait until fall bow season for white tails again. Already out shooting the bow and gettin ready for turkey season. See the pic of my 43 yd kill last fall. He was chasing a doe and I got him to slow down for a second and let'r fly. He went 10 yds. My longest attempt and kill on a deer. I am money out to 50 yds, but usually don't get the chance in the thick woods in eastern Ohio.

Nice buck on a nice shot.
I know the feeling, I am always counting down to the next hunting season the minute the last season ends. I am going bow hunting for the first time this year so I added 5 weeks onto my hunting seasons. This will be the first time that I will be able to hunt deer on my birthday and I am really looking forward to it.

Very nice buck and nice shot,
Very nice buck and nice shot, I'm with you, I hate the wait in between seasons. I only have to wait till the end of August but that seems so far away. with the tags I should draw this year i wont have much time off from hunting between August 25 till December 15th, and I wont complain about that. Good luck to you on the up coming seasons.

Thats a good looking buck. I too am having a hard time waiting for the seasons to start rolling around again. Antelope will be first for me and I cannot wait.

Back quite a few years ago I
Back quite a few years ago I also had a lot of trouble waiting for the fall seasons to come around but then I found out that if you work it right there are only a couple of months of the year that you really have any wait time. Between starting archery hunting now for elk and deer in August and ending with a javelina hunt in February and then the application time, reloading, and scouting trips I only have a little time to wait. But then I guess it is all in how you look at it.

Great buck, BTW!

Helps me get through the seasons
I can't wait either. I have invested in the moultrie game management system and it takes the edge off alittle. I get my pictures everyday from the camera and it seems to help. I am going to get a few more cameras hooked up so I can watch different properties. Waiting to get the pictures is jsut too much and now with gas over 4 bucks (bastards) it is worth it.
Coyote season and turkey season just manage to contain me. I want New York to open a Spring Bear season.

Do any of you chase wily
Do any of you chase wily longbeards in the Spring? That takes the edge off for me a little bit since we have seasons that last for six weeks and I can chase them until the first of June. Then it's not nearly as bad waiting for the early Fall big game seasons to open in September.

I'm usually able to keep
I'm usually able to keep myself plenty busy hunting something all year whether it's javelina like Critter said or hogs somewhere in the winter months. Even a few rabbit hunts till the seasons end. Occasionaly a run for some prarie dogs in the summer combined with fishing or some scouting trips. Hunting is the real passion but then when it does get here I'm almost overwhelmed with trying to get it all in with the limited time available. Seems like I'm hunting every day off from mid August to the end of the year or longer. Even if I'm not actually hunting myself I'm out there spotting for my kids or a friend.
The opportunities now are far greater than when I was younger and the internet has made it much easier to find all that is available.
