When will it end?

I feel like the grinch at Christmas suffering through this constant, ceaseless, tedious, incessant, neverending, overlong, montonous, interminable, everlasting deer season.

Maybe before it ends your cold cinder of a heart will grow three sizes bigger.

Re: When will it end?

If we were bound to get this weather, the timing for it has been perfect... the current condition of ice-crusted snow is not one I'd run my dogs in and I'm not one to shy away from wintery conditions.

In the mean time we just adapt...




After all, deer meat is considerably cheaper by the ounce.

If guns cause crime, mine must be broken.

Haha. I was thinking of doing the same post a few days ago. Can't even fun run during gun season and Sunday was too windy.

Six more days.

Re: When will it end?

I NEVER thought I would wish for deer season to end quicker. What the heck is up with these birds that they get ya like that.

For the last 2 evenings I have been glued to my phone reading The Grouse Hunters Guide. I had saved some of the feathers from my grouse, and have been hiding them and having Lilly go find them and such. This is very weird to me.

I am not sure how next archery season will be. I am always glued to a tree, and the weekends of muzzle loader season, and then the rut. I am wondering what my verdict will be for fitting grouse in there.

Well, I'm with dap, I am struggling with the wait..... But Lyco is right. I made the mistake of taking my setters out last day 11/30 at dawn. I had to work right after lunch so I HAD to go early if we were going to get that last hunt in. Snow was frozen and crusty, & after 45 minutes my dogs had a few bloody toes and I called the hunt over. I hate to say it though, but it was worth it. And drawing blood hunting isn't something new to these 2....they blast right through thorn thickets with hesitation on their own accord. But, it was worth it because my newest rescue had a :47 hold on a hen. It was his 7th time out hunting and he has learned so much so quickly, and it helped that I was keeping juggernaut sister close and from running a muck.

Here is the video clip: Beau passes his Pointing Exam!

I have gone deer hunting in the past, but I guess without someone to go with, I choose not to go it alone as I am not that into it. Maybe next year, "us bird guys" get together for deer hunt? Then after about 30 minutes in the woods, we can go to breakfast and talk bird dog stories

Post a pic of a setter you say..... how about a video?

Here is my favorite clip that I got this first half season.... the flush is in slow motion so you can see those tail feathers wiggle! Shake Your Tail Feathers
