turkeys in spring, fishing all summer, dove and bowhunting early fall, ducks/deer in late fall/winter.

by the time I just barely start to get burnt out/frustrated with one thing, it's over and it's time for something new. I'm always a little sad when a particular season is over, but at the same time, ready for a new activity. when Turkey season ends next week, I'll be distraught for a couple of days, then I'll go do some fishing and I'll be back to myself

With the exception of our long winters, I don't get the duck depression. Now, I'm trying to find tome to deflate a spring bear, and then the salmon start showing up. About the time that is winding down, the trout fishing is winding up, then right into duck hunting on September 1st. From about Memorial Day to freeze up I will be very busy!

Every spring is always the busiest time of year for me, my mind usually manages to keep it at bay until the middle of summer. Then I start to get impatient.

That's awesome Hunt. But the good news is... after all the late night feedings... waking up to crying. The lack of money. The time invested into the future of your family... they hit puberty... and you really are :censored: ...

After that comes the borrowing phase... "can I borrow the car? the boat? your gun? your decoys..."etc.

It will stop just as you can no longer raise your gun to your shoulder.

Congrats brother... :thumbsup:

I have it! Sold my boat for plans to buy another hull, so that stopped my fishing season. I gave up golfing a few years ago. I used to turkey hunt, but decided it was too much travel and gave that up. I use to dove hunt, but got sick of sweaty balls all day. I already started replacing clothing and dropped my gun off for cerakoting. Also, ordered some Cordura to sew on my bibs to save them for a few more seasons.
