    For your excitement level for the next hunting season to rise.

    Yesterday I watched a group of honks glide over a group on the ground, they then started to leaf a little, over shot the group then did a hard U turn. Got over the group on the ground and started to backpedal. Just seeing that got the blood flowing an put a smile on my face.

    What’s it take for you...

    For me, it's a variety of things. Kind of pathetic, but will admit I get excited when the fall hunting catalogs come out. (Hey that reminds me: I need more decoys! :fp ) More than that though, in August or September, there are usually some smells that trigger my excitement. I can't even say what they are, but at some point, I always say "Smells like hunting season is almost here." Weird, huh?

    The cool mornings starting in late September, dove and bandtails building in numbers in the trees around the place, rabbits grazing on the dew covered grass in the mornings, the first real rains of the season, listening to the hundreds of flocks of small race Canadas and specks migrating over in the night sky, the thousands of calendar migrants wigeon, pintails and teal arriving the month before and building up to the waterfowl opener.

    Ughhhhh have myself dreaming now. :z :l :l

    Hey GDT, you think we can get a discount for a bulk order of decoys? :l

    A nip in the air and the leaves turning colors is what gets me thinking about hunting.

    Couldn’t agree more on the cooler temps. Hard to think about hunting when we are about to hit triple digit temps this week.
    Just watching those birds work got me anticipating seeing that a lot more this season!

    Around the 1st of August every year I start hearing the consistent wings of ducks and calling of geese, as they fly to and from the lake, first thing in the morning and as the sun goes down at night. That consistency is what get me going.

    Cheers,

    Adam
