I have been going back and reading back issues of D&DH lately (normal behavior for me this close to the season) and I came upon one of Dan Schmidt's "Editor's Stump" articles from last year. I can't remember which issue it was, but he was talking about the top ten things that let him know it's near opening day. Things like seeing the leaves start to change color, setting up a new stand, cutting shooting lanes, and the different senses relating to autumn. It just about gave me goosebumps when I read it. Stuff like this really feed my fire. I have never been more exited about opening day in my entire life. I have every issue of Deer and Deer Hunting that I have ever received, and I still get them out and read them all the time. Gotta love it!!!
