So here in Ontario, we’re eight days removed from the end of spring turkey hunting, and already I’m jonesing for more hunting.
I don’t think I’m going to get it.
I’m seeing all sorts of geese wandering around, loafing next to ponds, and being smug in their knowledge that I can’t do a darn thing about eating them until some time in early September.
I’m also seeing a whole lot of groundhogs around, and I’d love to get out and help some landowners remove any unwanted landscapers from their properties, but no one seems interested.
So what to do, what to do?
Well I have some ideas for some thoughts about the impending (and by impending I mean three months from now) waterfowl season, and some reminiscences about past ones, so I’ll put those up as I finish them. I’m also going to a wedding for my cousin in a couple of weeks, so I’m sure there will be some old ghosts of stories drummed up there as we have some laughs and some drinks.
For those of you who have emailed me for gear tips, I’ve got a treat. Not only will I have a new set of “Confessions of a Waterfowling Gearhead” but for the two (2) fans who emailed asking for some links to buy gear, I’ll oblige (see, no request is too small) so in the future look for a link to a place on the site where I’ll give some more in-depth reviews of the gear, clothes, and calls I use and post some links for those who want to use what I use (although for the life of me, I can’t understand the appeal…but I’m not going to turn down a compliment either).
And if anyone reading is, or knows any landowners near the 401 corridor between Milton and Woodstock that need some groundhogs or coyotes taken care of, flip me an email here. I’d be happy to come by on a weekend and help out.
