Getting to be that time of year....

The air has begun to look and smell a little different. Acorns have been falling for quite a while....critters are behaving a little differently. I have plenty of freezer space.....

That 'itch' is upon me.

    Indeed, .45-sized holes in things has me thinking about recipes....

    And as far as the coyote hunting goes, I may (will) be leaning on you guys for some input. I'm still as green as can be when it comes to figuring out those guys. But, that's for another thread.

    editing myself is the norm.....

    I know what you mean. You'd notice it in the fall a little back in Louisiana, but here in Colorado it's really pronounced, and it happens without warning. Just one morning toward the end of summer you wake up and the light is softer...sort of golden. Mornings are when you usually see it best, but around here occasionally it'll stay that way all day. I guess it may be the changing sun angle, but that doesn't explain the suddeness of the change from one day to the next.

    Yes, the air is changing and my mood is changing along with the approaching fall, what a wonderful time of the year.

    Indeed. Its time to kill something.

    Need some 405's?

    Nope, but thanks, got plenty...for this early season stuff I'll be using the .223 AR Things happen pretty fast an furious. I've got the one for the .45-70 all planned out...it's gonna be a cold morning, enough so you can see your breath, at the tail end of autumn, and he's gonna be a big old gray male standing on the pond dam, the morning sun is going to highlight him against the willows...

    Much envy here.....Truth be told, I'll send an arrow through one a lot smaller and a lot less 'male'. I like meat.

    But seriously, tell your buddy congrats. :up:

    He is a pretty serious hunter of whitetails, I will try and get a picture of the "shed" at the sporting clays range he runs in his spare time, about a dozen nice mounts.
