I'm about ready, how about you?
Its 9 days till Pa. flintlock deer season opens. And oh yeah, I'm counting them down. I don't hunt the rifle season but I was at camp and I sat at stand with some young people, organizes a few small drives for my daughter and son and law, and Ive had deer for supper a couple times already. To say the least I'm ready to hunt.
Getting ready is a process. It starts pretty much when the rifle gets a thorough going over and is put back in the rack when the seasons ends or I get lucky and fill my tags. (During the season its pretty much by the back door or on its pegs at camp.) That's when I start planning next season or wondering if I can afford to do that whitetail hunt in Maine I always wanted to take. Haven't yet, but I will. Then the shooting practice. The scouting. Getting a new piece of gear and messing with it.
Getting the old stuff ready. My wool pants and coat, my old hat and my bag. Then its time for a new flint, an edge on the knife, and a change in my pace, and in my mind.
Its 9 days out. I'm about ready. How about you?
