17 days till the STEEL flies! anyone else anxious?

Postby nhhonker » Sun Aug 19, 2012 10:35 am

Im counting down the days, prepping my gear, practicing calling, scouting and dreaming. The other day i was in a field, and had over 60 geese fly over the treeline right over me and my hunting buddy. We were both drooling...... watching, dreaming....... Is anyone else ready? and what are your pre-season preperation schedule?

The shooting started on the 15th in some states.
