You can sure tell when "The Lag" is on by the ridiculousness of the discussions or arguments that are posted on this site! We will argue over whether it is a poisonous or venomous snake, or is it a coke, pop, soda pop, soda water, or just maybe, its a coca cola! Whats the best caliber bullet for deer? Where is the best place to shoot a deer? Box stand or ladder stand; no wait, the climber is best! No scent soap is a must, unless your hunting the wind of course, then it doesn't matter! Best snacks for the stand are....peanut butter crackers, or double stack Whataburger with jalapenos! Should I walk a mile to the stand so I can keep quite or just ride right up to my stand and park it right there! The topics go on and on, but I think for the most part, we are bored because we are out of hunting opportunities (except those that require heat strokes) and are seeking mental entertainment to stimulate our outdoor minds! I include myself in this annual slog fest, as I to am ready for what won't be here for another 4 to 5 months. This is who we are, and while there are opinions galore on every subject from "what protein to feed" to "how to avoid swamp butt while sitting in the bow blind in early October", we are all on the same team! Whether you are killing deer or killing time in the stand, it's what we are all waiting on! So here's a toast with ice tea or beer of your choice, to "The Lag" ! We all share it and for all the aggravation of waiting, it sure makes the arrival of season worth it! cheers

But this year is different. We will burn our hunting license and go kill pigs by the ton... because we can.

I nust can't believe there are that many hunters that dont fish. Ya'll gotta broaden your horizons a little bit. Shouldn't be a lag, just a new season for a new thing!

You forgot to mention the debate about chili with beans or without beans.....seems to be a really touchy topic with some of us.

Do you shave with the electric or disposable?

The same direction the hair grows, opposite, or crosscut? confused2

There's a thin line between fishing and standing on The shore like an idiot.

Yep, like sitting in an enclosed box all dressed up in camo looking out the widows waiting for deer or whatever you're 'hunting' to show up.

Some of us don't have time to fish....we are too busy catching up on the stuff our wife was nagging us to do on the weekends that we didn't get done during deer season.

roflmao I'm with you kid.

The older I get, the less I look forward to summer. I'm already ready for the first freeze. Wife reminded me today that we're down to 4 packets of venison. I'm not even going to look for axis until July, after I've been working outside and am on the verge of heat stroke. That's when the devils appear for me. bang

I used to fish quite a bit, but I finally had to make the decision I would either hunt or fish, but couldnít do both. Best fishing time is also the best time for business and the two donít jive real well.

I will still cast a line in a river here or there and take a trip to Medina or Choke once a year but I donít hit it like I used to.


I do miss owning a boat though. Driving a boat is very freeing. I loved blasting down the nueces toward lake Corpus Christi or running Dunlap


For it is not the quarry that we truly seek, but the adventure.

But are beans really beans without chili?

Glad I started hunting out west where the season starts in September. Missed out on some bird hunts but the weather is much nicer.

If you put bean in it, it ain't chili...but congrats on making a tasty pot of bean soup.

what time do you set your feeder to go off? Well doesn't mean you have to get up early

It's the best round to use while hunting in a high fenced pen.
You just follow the blood trail along the fenceline and look for the buzzards.
