Got a call telling me that I had an early deadline this week. This usually cases quite a predicament in that there’s nothing much happening in the four days since I turned in my last article.
This time the pain of a short notification was lessened due to a recent froggin’ trip.
It started at dark, which seemed to take awhile. I was at a pond owned by a friend with my light and gig.
As it got dark the frogs started croakin’ so loud it was almost eerie. Of course I wasn’t scared, maybe a little nervous, but not scared.
In my last article I mentioned that we were sort of “between” gunning seasons. So, I suggested you try coyote hunting to ease the pain of not shooting!
Since the article came out I was reminded of a couple of other opportunities to hunt!
First, we have an early squirrel season we can take advantage of. It runs from May 18 until June 21 with a daily limit of six and possession limit of 12.
I’m not one to advocate killing something just for the sake of killing. So when I say all coyotes should be shot, trapped or in some way eradicated it’s not just for the killing. It’s a matter of control!
This point was brought to my attention during our turkey season. On two occasions I came across a pile of turkey feathers and some body parts. Don’t know why the feathers and body parts were left since a coyote usually eats everything.
O.K. Score: Turkeys = several, me = zero. Oh, I saw birds, plenty of birds. But, they were either very young (small Jakes) or they hung up on me.
Course the Jakes got to looking better the closer to season’s end it got. They also got wiser and the last week of the season even they started to hang up!
Big derby weekend coming up. For a lot of us this means “Derby parties.” Whether you have a horse to bet on, or just taking an opportunity to hang with some friends, please be safe!
Along with the parties will be some alcohol consumption by many. I don’t pass judgment, as long as you’re of age. So, all I’ve got to say is if you drink don’t ruin a great time by driving!
The turkey hunting has been on my back burner for the last week. Meetings, doctor visits and the weather sure cut into my hunting.
