First, I was super blessed to have a great turkey season and bag my limit and have a new stash of memories I won't forget. So I am very happy about that, but you know how it is... I'm gonna miss those trips down to the WMA to chase those birds, and the 2 day hunts where I stayed in the car overnight, finding new places to hunt and what not. Starting to sink in now... gotta wait almost a whole year now for it to happen again. Yes I will fall hunt... got 2 goals set, which are 4 birds in one shot (far fetched I know), and to bag a fall gobbler. But it ain't the same and I'll be gearing up for deer season. Funny thing is, during deer season I was obsessed with deer and I didn't care too much for turkeys because I knew I would when spring came. And this spring I haven't cared for deer at all, except when I found a couple of sheds. Funny how it works. Now it's that post-season withdrawal that is tough to go through. I am super pumped to go fishing but can't help but wish I were still turkey hunting.

Enjoy fishing and preparing for deer season. Be glad you have hobbies with different seasons to hold you over till the next one. That's what's great about being an outdoorsmen it's year round fun...

spot on... I have some outdoor hobby to look forward to no matter what time of year. Oh and speaking of deer season, I need to start shooting my bow more.

I'm ready for a break. When I'm not in the woods or work I'm @the the baseball fields with my son. Never a dull moment. Would love to fish more but just haven't been able to squeeze it in.

I would love to work one more hot gobbler this year before it is over.....I miss it more every year that it closes. I am not ready for the season to be over either.

I'm never ready for it to end. This has been a strange year, but good as usual. I will miss it until it opens next March, and will pass the time with some fish, deer, and grouse.
