I can almost tolerate winter when it’s here, because I know it’s leaving eventually. But leaving it’s mess behind when it leaves is too much. I was looking at a weekend weather forecast that looked ideal for hunting. Temperatures in the 60s Saturday would be perfect for drying out (the ground, not me), then back down to the 40s Sunday for comfortable hunting conditions.
Now I’ve gotten word that there will be no hunting this weekend, and possibly for the rest of the season. The ice storm in February left so much destruction that major cleanup of the territory is needed before hunting is feasible. I guess I’ll just have to knock some of the mud off of Arthur and hack around the farm Saturday. It sounds like it’s going to be too nice not to.
