Deer Season!!!

Next Thursday October 1, is the start to my annual retreat from the weather world for awhile. It is the start to deer season, particularly bow season. For those that do not know, I am an avid bow hunter and have been since I was a child.
Deer season is not only a time for me to possibly put meat in the freezer (yes we do eat deer meat) but it also a time that I get to reflect somewhat on the past year. This reflection includes weather and chasing not to mention life in general. To me, there is no better time to really think about "things" than while sitting in a tree stand waiting on the sunrise....overlooking a lush field of green clover and watching the deer eat, play and do what deer do. The serenity of being out in the "wild" is one that I do enjoy and am glad that I can take part in on a year to year basis. It's just one of those things I love. Plus, it gets me out of the weather world for awhile and I get to spend more time with my family.
This year I have elected to take my son, so that hopefully, I can start the whole teaching process while he is young. I don't think I have ever been as excited about deer season as I am about this year.
I have already scouted, glassed, hung the stands and sighted my bow in....I am ready for deer season!!!
