I tip my hat

a writer I am not, but here goes;

To all of the men and women who choose to hit the woods this time of year with flintlocks in hand, I tip my hat and salute you all!!! we hunt at a time of year that can be 60 degrees and beautiful, 30 degrees and raining or most likely 10 degrees with a foot of snow 30 mph winds and snow blowing sideways. yet year after year day after miserable day you/we hit the woods and fields in hopes of bringing home a nice fat doe or if we are really lucky a trophy buck, both of which are true trophies with a flintlock. even though the deer have been hunted, chased, pushed, spooked, shot at and picked over you are out there. And yet with all of these negative elements against you, you continue on in the quest of that trophy. to come on here and see the pictures and stories is truly a wonderful thing. but most of all one of the greatest things is the lack of complaining about the time of year for the season or the length of the season, not wanting more other than to be just left alone to do your thing. simply just getting out with a weapon from the past and getting it done or not, either way is a good day

Listen, or your tongue will make you deaf.

"When a pine needle falls in the forest, the eagle sees it, the deer hears it, and the bear smells it."

Very well written! I like late season. It seems like less pressure. After the craziness of rifle, I'm ready for it to calm down..
