Geezer hunt

I saw a post about trying to get a bunch of guys together to hunt bear during the special firearms season and they pointed out that the Sr hunters could hunt both deer and bear with the rifle that day. Got me thinking about the typical geezer hunt these days, (of which I am almost qualified),

Enjoy!






Geezer hunt:

4 am Up to go to the bathroom, start coffee
4:30 am Check HPA on the internet, send 3-4 responses that you think are funny

4:35 am Bathroom again

4:45 am Shower with no scent soap
4:50 am Pull 1965 .308 out of the gun cabinet and put it in the jeep

4:55 am Fill Thermos
5 am Drive to SGL # XXX and sit in parking lot in the dark waiting on friends
5:05 am Check HPA on your phone. Nobody responded to your "jokes"

5:07 am Car drives behind you heading deeper into SGL. You think...Ha Ha...he overslept.

5:10 am Stomach rumbles....wish there was a bathroom here. You wonder if an hour and a half is enough time to drive to Dunkin to use the bathroom and get another coffee before daybreak.

5:15 am Where is hunting buddy...said he would be here at 5:30, but if he's not early, he's usually late.

5:20 am Buddy shows up. Jumps in your truck. Says his dog got sprayed by a skunk this morning....you already knew for obvious reasons.

5:25 am Let's get going...going to be light in an hour and a half.
5:30 am You get to your tree 45 yards off the road and unfold your hunting stool.


5:35 am Sit in dark sweating.



7:30 am You wake up after almost falling off the stool. Think to yourself, "Man now I gotta go to Dunkin" No choice in the matter


Get text from hunting buddy 45 yards away from you...."Dunkin?"



Sit in Dunkin drinking coffee and eating glazed donuts.

9am get home. Tell wife, "Nothing moved this morning. Were gonna hit it again tomorrow."

9:30 NAP!

I prefer my kid hunt and fish rather than steal and deal,

Remember.... they're full time deer......we're part time hunters!

First problem I see is you got up way way to early, "Rookie mistake" Second one you must always have a roll of paper towels in your vehicle at all time. Unless, you have your "Depends on" Third, Skip the donuts! "that's a tough one", Eat a fiber bar. Fourth,you came home to early! didn't stop at the VFW to tell the troops how your hunting "day" went. the big 8 pt.you miss. When you join this elite club there's rules you must obey! I think? My memory is getting a little weak. Any how, tomorrow go catch that big "fish"

You left out forgot to take meds so turned back towards home. Took meds, topped off thermos with more coffee, peed again, and then headed for the SGL again!

Bigfoot saw me but nobody believes him!
