For some reason, this year I am trying not to get too excited...yet. This summer has been real cool so far. I have had my air conditioner on for a total of 2 days. Thats not right. I just have this sinking feeling that it is gonna get hot soon, and I will not like it if its hot in september, october, and november. I dont enjoy hunting while it is hot. I try to "control" it until it gets cold. Might be just me though.
Still haven't put the air on. I have a feeling August will be a hot month. Hopefully September will be tolerable and we'll have normal October and November weather. Last season was really strange. Late October we had an ice storm and a few days later on November 1 I shot an 8 pointer and had to gut and drag him in 70 degree weather.
I'm looking forward to this season too. I've been shooting for a couple weeks now but theres still some gear that I want to add before the season starts so I'm willing to wait another month and a half. For quite a few family members, this will be their first season. Hopefully, it will be a good season for me and a season full of firsts for those that I hunt with.
