Balance of the State opens on my birthday again. Bitter-sweet I will be 53! I used to relish the opener on my birthday....when I was younger, teenager, college days...but I'd either be recovering from a victory on Friday nights, then getting after it on Saturday opener. Then off to college, couldn't hunt opener on birthday due to a game on Saturday's, but thought of my brother or father....those who would be enjoying the local shoot. It's funny how we look forward to such days...hell, now I need them to slow down! Still a great ***** day!
