Deer, rabbit, squirrel, pheasant and more are available to hunt this month. The one that is not is turkey. The fall season shut down in late October and reopens in December. I still have hopes of taking a nice turkey this fall. Hope, I guess, that is why we go out. The hope for collecting game. The hope for bagging a trophy. The hope for memories to look back on when the time comes that we can no longer venture out into the wild. The hope of what there is to come, the promise of an even better day than our best day before. The idea that we had fun and did things the ethical way in case this is our last season. November is special so treat each day as if it were your last and enjoy.
Be safe and good hunting!
