The chance of poisonous snakes would freak me out. lol. I can deal with cold, snow, rain, bugs, mosquitoes, spiders, rodents, but snakes... *shudders* lol.
I wish we had a dove season! They put it up to the votes a few years ago and Michigan is one of the few states that doesn't have a dove season. The resident early goose season started on September 1 though, it runs through the 15th for the area we live and hunt in.
We hunted a new spot that my husband gained access too on Sunday. Got 2. Sure it's better than 0. And there're the only birds we shot at. We were hunting a cut wheat field and were watching a ton of geese flying around in the distance, but just couldn't get them to commit. We found out after the hunt that we were the 3rd group to hunt that field in 4 days. No wonder the geese didn't want anything to do with it. We were told initially we'd be the only ones out there. That's the way it goes.
There's a good chance we'll hunt that area again on Saturday, just due to the sheer number of geese in the area.
