Opening day of rifle season means a lot of different things depending on who you talk to. For the avid hunter, they've prepped through summer & fall with establishing food plots, building the perfect deer stand in the most ideal spot in the woods, brush hogging the fields for good visibility and sighting in the most prize possession, the rifle. For the widow wives, it's a free ticket for a girls shopping weekend. As for us, it's usually the last hurrah for the year at the farm. It's hard to believe that it's even that time of year considering the kids took a plunge in the pond a few weeks back.
So the prepping and packing began with the questions flooding in. Who's coming up? How long ya staying? What projects are we working on? What's for supper? I know two things for sure....we will never starve at the farm and there is never a shortage of projects. UB (Uncle Bob) has already said potato soup with grilled ham and cheese for Friday and I hear liver and onions are scheduled somewhere in the week.
Good luck hunters!
