Make better plans for hunt opportunities & finalize the where and when, with who ??'s ....since I am probably not EVER again get into a lease situation.
Visit and check out TPW Lottery sites to survey local support resources and Hunt Area staff attitudes and hunt conditions. Study the success histories, looking for places to look 1st for any Stand By chances.
Go scout the the NF, etc opportunities for Type II hunts. EX: I drive by the WMA access point signage in Robertson County every time I go to the VA in Temple...and have never stopped to figure what that WMA has to offer...Lake Limestone Access ??? dunno yet, but gonna, might be nuthin' but it might be somethin too...take th time to go see what's up with that Sign.
Finalize load workups on the chosen shooters waaay before the last minute like this year was, with most of my new to me guns never having been hunted before & resolve any issues with which scope is going on which gun before it gets too hot to wring them out at the range.
Sell Off the shooters I'm no longer interested in long term, and shop for another 7mm or 6.5 of some sort...and mebbe try another 9.3x62 for a fun thumper.
Bottom Line: Not gonna sit and wonder where could I go THIS coming week to hunt what on thursday Nite and the weather is perfect? I'd love to 52 weeks a year if it's possible and I wanted to....feels like I am running out of time more and more these days ...still got the desire but less and less of the ability to make things happen.
