I know that if you have ever had to hunt beyond the first two weekends of gun season without having taken anything, then you know how I am feeling.
I hunt mainly for the meat and my family enjoys venison very much. I also love seeing the animals move in the woods without anything else happening but when you are not seeing anything it gets a little tiring.
I guess that this weekend will be the one and that after a long dry spell I will enjoy the harvest of whitetail deer even more than normal.
Good luck and good hunting!
