Off Season-'11

Howdy ya'll. It's been a quiet off season as far as hunting goes but it's fixing to pick up. Work has been crazy and I have been working a lot of overtime so I haven't had much time for very many hunting related activities. I did get a new truck and it will get it's first hunting use when turkey season opens up next month.

I'm gonna try to get out next week and start checking on the local turkey groups and see where they are at and start roosting them in the evenings. One group I hunt has some new agriculture in the fields around where they stay so I have very high hopes for that area. I am so ready for opening day and getting back in the woods and so is my gear. I'm still looking for my first archery bird and hope it works out this year.

I am coaching my daughter's softball team this year. They don't usually play many games on the weekends so I shouldn't lose many full weekends and if we do play on Saturday, there is always Sunday. I may have to skip my Prentice Cooper turkey hunt but it's not a big deal. It's an open hunt and not a draw hunt.

After spring turkey is spring squirrel then it's time to get ready for deer season and my Prentice Cooper draw hunt. A buddy is supposed to go with me this year and it will be his first trip and hopefully not his last. I'm really looking forward to it more than the last couple of years. I hope to have some good stories this year and I look forward to sharing them with ya'll.

Good luck to everybody in the upcoming seasons and God Bless.
