This heat is really slowing me down. I guess that’s what happens when you’re retired. But, hey, I’m not going to let a little thing like that keep me out of the deer woods! Every day is a blessing, and every day teaches me something new about the lands I walk. For me, that’s amazing, because I’ve been walking these same woods, day after day, year after year, for decades. I’m simply fascinated when I find a shed antler someplace new. It’s almost as if the deer are trying to teach me something. And I’m sure they probably are.
In any event, I walked more than half the day today … 4.5 hours to be exact. There are way too many ticks out here right now. These 70+ degree days can be thanked for that. I hear the walleyes are already running on the big rivers. Might need to take a break here pretty soon and join one of my buddies in a boat.
Even more amazing, it seems like the spring frogs have been chirping all month. It’s only March! Incredible.
Plan on going shed hunting again tomorrow, though. Still have a few places I want to check and re-check before hanging it up for the year.
