SPIRIT of the HUNT is going to rest !

The Spirit is slowly drifting into a needed rest time .
For 90% of people it the Spirit will just hide in the back of their memory until maybe September or October then it will come forward?
It will awaken some what for Spring Turkey season but not as it does for the pursuit of the Whitetail deer?
This is not a bad thing but it gives the hunter a rest also? I can't shake the Spirit as i seem to be able to relive every hunt i have ever been on!
Watch how the site slowly just slows to a crawl till it come near the season and the Spirit comes awake again ?

I am checking trail cams next weekend. If I get some nice bucks, the spirit will live again for a little while. Then, around late-June, when the bucks start really getting nice antlers again, the spirit will be back. Weekends will be spent running trail cams, planting some food plots and day dreaming about nice bucks.

There will also be a little fishing mixed in there, as well as my son's baseball, summer basketball and football camp to keep me occupied in the off months.

Still on trail cam patrol, removing stands this weekend all 11 of them. A small respite for 2 months but then off for sheds plus some March scouting for next year. And then onto shed hunting. No fishing, that fire has gone out, no will to fish anymore. Golf a lot then till August, hanging stands in between. Repeat season. Man, I love the SRA'S... But it takes a lot of work with little rest to get on top of those furry buggers.

From deer and bear to trapping. Turkeys then to striper and then flounder and back to deer, not to mention running cams year round, scouting, moving stands and shed hunting... the spirit is alive and well in me although work sometimes does get in the way.

Like BB, with me the spirit does not end with hunting, it is like the seasons, when one ends another begins.
I can target shoot gun and crossbow year round behind the house.
Don't ski much anymore but will go tubing when someone comes up and wants to go. I am in the woods often and work on the quads or equipment getting it ready for summer or just making sure it is ready when I want it.
Starting around mid March I open up the shore house and get the boats ready to try and get my share of the 3 fish 19" minimum for flounder. Will be ready for spring and fall striper but they are getting harder to plan.
By then its time to get back getting ready for hunting season to roll around again. Doe licenses to apply for, DMAPs to buy..

The older I get the quicker each of the seasons roll around and realizing I probably don't have 20 seasons left in me anymore makes the spirit burn all the brighter and makes me more determined to go all out since you never know when it will be your last.
