Do you get lost?
My wife called to tell me that she was sorry, but that she’d be late. I was leaving to speak to a group and would be gone overnight. She had planned to see me off.
I asked if everything was okay. She said, “Yes, but I took a wrong turn and it’s thrown me off schedule. I knew better than to go this way. I don’t know what I was thinking about.”

This hunting season has started off a little odd. I’ve not actually been in the woods and yet 2 of the 3 states that surround my home have already opened their season. I wonder if I’m losing my edge. Well, not really. I am excited about going, but there are several factors that have postponed my start. First of all, I prefer a little chill in the air before I start slinging arrows. A good barometer for me is whether or not I can see my breath. I love those cool temperatures. Another reason I have not hunted yet is simply timing. I have either been traveling or getting ready to travel and have needed any extra time for other things. And then lastly, I’m just saving myself.
