Thinking about the upcoming season

Bird season is over; the dogs are resting on their beds in the corner, their feet healed up from our closing week quail safari in New Mexico. I have a little downtime before training season is here. But tonight, I am looking forward to turkey season! I broke out my vest and the calls and started honing my quite gentle hen speak. I miss the company of the dogs during the spring turkey hunts, but there is something magical about calling a big old gobbler within shotgun (or bow) range. The anticipation is like the suspended excitement I get during a point on sharp-tails, but it lasts much longer. I may have a hard time getting to sleep tonight, thinking about the upcoming season. -Chris
