..sniff...it's over:(
« on: January 18, 2011, 07:04:07 PM »
...sniff...sniff...(que tears)  :-[ Well, deer season is officially over here in Illinois. I had my best season to date but it still stinks to think it will be another 9 months until I can draw the bow on a deer again.  My son and I are signed up for the hunter education course in March so I have that to look forward to. It means that next year he'll be able to hunt with me a bit more and I'll actually be able to hunt out of state.  I'd love to be able to head west and smack an elk or head south and stick a pig.  The off season will be good though. I plan on shooting my bow about every night, flyfishing for panfish this spring, turkey hunting at our property and working on selling our house and some other properties we own so we can afford to build in the woods!!  So, even though season is over, I'm going to have quite a bit to keep me busy. I'm sure October 1st will be here again before I know it!
Hope everyone else has a good off season when theirs does arrive.

Glad you had your best season yet. I still have 13 more days left to hunt. So I'm not far behind you. I will be doing some fishing and I plan to get a youth rifle so my kids can go and maybe get them a deer.

I suppose the off season is a good thing to some degree. If we could hunt year round the critters we love to pursue it probably wouldn't be as special in the months or days leading up to opening day....

Ours will be over on the 31st, but we have a couple of weeks left of squirrel and rabbit after that, and we are going after the hogs hard this year. There's still fun to be had!

I got to take my hunter safety course so I can hunt out of state... I have life time hunting license and am grandfather in from having to take the course . I been told I am exempt for all states except for Colorado but they where not 100% sure so I am going to take it to be sure...

Have you gotten any of your mounts back yet?

My best season, also.  I am going to go to the lease and do some rabbit hunting, which is something I haven't done since I was a kid with a pellet gun.  I'm looking forward to it, and just getting out into the woods again.
Retired after 34 yrs. on Jacksonville (Fl.) Police Dept.  19 yrs. in patrol and last 15 yrs. in C.S.I.
Now I can hunt and go bass fishing anytime I want!  Started deer hunting in 2007 but, had many years as a teen hunting rabbits and squirrels.
