    Still, I'm planning on hitting the Harrisburg show and take advantage of whatever opportunities I can. Had a couple hours free Sunday afternoon and the sun was out. Took the boy and the dogs for a run up behind the house. Was rewarded nicely.
    Four years ago we'd have 3-5 cottontails in our yard every evening. Not so much the last couple, but they'll be back.

      Any problems with calves and black buzzards Red?

        Although I am still pheasant hunting with success, I definitely dread being "cooped up" this time of year. Cold temps bother me more than they used to. This time of year , I find myself looking to purchase a new firearm. I usually purchase a firearm in February, in fact nearly every February for more than twenty years. Also it is a time that spend at the reloading bench, taking inventory, upgrading equipment and other inside gun stuff.

Got ducks till Saturday, most small game till the end of Feb at which time I have to leave for Arizona, hopefully returning to NC before turkey season closes.

          Also as Gary stated, I enjoy downtime between seasons by heading out to the National Forest plus a couple smaller gamelands to scout. Especially right now when most animals are still moving like they were at the end of the season. Saw a lot of deer during bow season and the first 2 weeks of firearms. By mid November my sightings had dropped off severely and I'm looking to change that next year. Post-Thanksgiving was usually my favorite time of the hunting season back home.
          Red, I'm looking for one of those chainsaw bayonets they mentioned on USAToday. Looking to put one on my 30-30

            But I must say, I have seen some guns that pique my intrest, like the Mauser M18, the new Fox shotguns and the carbon fiber brownings
