Late season update

I haven’t been home in 4 days.  I’m only 30 miles away but it feels like 3000.   I’ve spent the last 4 days trying to get some good folks on a turkey and I’ve stayed with them at our company lodge.  I’m absolutely worn out and in 4 hours, I’ve got to get up and take my hunters to the airport…then go work a 13 hour day.  I’m exhausted.  But the past 4 days is some of the most fun I’ve had with my clothes on in a long time.  When I get home tomorrow, I’m going to pour a whiskey and write all about it.  Until then, in the words of Mills Lane; good fight, good night.

Sunday hunting in West Virginia.

SundayHuntingWVIf you live in West Virginia you’re probably aware of our asinine law which does not allow hunting on Sunday except on private land in 14 of the 55 counties.  I’m not going to get into the reasons why the current laws are stupid, but what I will do is encourage you to vote on May 13 and help get the state moving in the right direction.  While the upcoming vote will only allow for hunting on private land, it is a step in the right direction to opening all land in the state to Sunday hunting.   Here’s a link the Sunday Hunting in WV Facebook Group.  Like it and share it.  Spread the word and make your voice heard at the polls May 13.
