It was there and then it was gone....Not going to be deer hunting again until September. I'd give a lot for it to be October again with chinkapin acorns on the ground and watching deer come into bow range.

I'm looking forward to small game hunting but I know I will see a deer out there and won't be thinking about small game then. I hunted roughly 57 days and over 70 individual hunts and I still did not burn out. I guess I'd deer hunt all year long if it was legal. Well at least there is turkey season. Nothing like gobbler hunting. But it will take a while to switch out of deer mode.

I hardly got back into the woods after Thanksgiving week, being more focused on family and an unusual phase of church/work going down with us transitioning into a new building. Don't think I'll have time to do much anything outdoors this month, though I may go dip a line when they stock the trout.

I know the feeling. I had a good year and several experiences that made this year a little special. I went to my hunting place yesterday morning for one last tree-sitting. When I left the cabin I couldn't help but think, "That's the last time I deer hunt for nine months."

On the drive home I wondered why I felt a little blue at the end of deer season but don't get those feelings about fishing. Then I realized that fishing doesn't have such an abrupt end. I fished during deer season this year.

That's when I realized that deer season ends, but my deer hunting activities last year-round. I have shooting lanes to clear in places where I observed they are needed, trees to cut, stands to relocate, salt licks to maintain and trail cameras to enjoy. My spirits immediately lifted.

On top of all that, as soon a this weather breaks I'll be hitting the trout waters and starting my 2014 fishing adventures. All of those things make me feel happy, happy, happy.

I like your outlook on things. Plenty to do in preparation for next season
