    Ahhhhhhhhhh.....what a wonderful, beautiful, cool September 1st morning. I don't know if it's the cool air or that it's finally September. Boys and girls 9 days til the backstrap boogie begins. I feel like a kid and it's the week before Christmas!
    I am soooooooo ready for sights like this!

    Ohhhh Yeahhhh Man!! The thermometer at my house said 53 this morning when I left. It felt sooooo good. I've got Dove season opening Saturday and then Bow season the next. It is such an exciting time of the year for us bowhunters lol. My wife just doesn't get it..... There is nothing better than being in the stand when the world wakes up around you.. I can't wait man!

    September!!!
    I'm with you guys...Waited all year and it's almost here...Gonna Pass on the Doves and Head home to West V to Smallmouth Fish the New River 1 last time before I start playing tree monkey. I always say that I'm gonna take 1 out for dinner early but i always just sit and take it all in while they feed around me...Really depends on the weather...If it's cool like it was this AM and I see a Plump Doe at First light and she's alone without fawns or Yearlings...I'll give her a few minutes and then it's THWACK time!!!!Good Luck to ALL you Guys....Gonna Be a Great Season!!!!

    Amen guys! And I'd say GT's right about taking one out for dinner. I don't know what it is, but for some reason it's always hard for me as well, to take a deer on opening day. I've set a goal to take one opening day, but hopefully it wont be like last year where I found myself staring in awe at the deer around me. It's crazy to think it's something we've seen hundreds (and even thousands) of times, but when it happens for that first time of the season, the moment is special. To me, all else ceases to exist except for myself and the deer/environment around me. And I think for that very reason, is why I love hunting so much! 9 days and a wake up boys!

    9 days till
    Hey deer. This is just a reminder to you that in 9 days your vacation is officially over. So you better stay on your toes and check the sky, because you never know where I might be. You might want to start screaming and running right now. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
