It's almost that time of year. I can start hunting in just 5 days. Early goose season begins at sunrise, on Tuesday, Sept 3rd, and ends on Sept 15th. Bag limit in my area is 3 per day. On Sat, Sept. 14th, bow-deer and grouse season open at 30 mins before sunrise. Then the regular goose season begins on Sat Sept 21st, and duck begins on Sept 28th. In 5 more days, it's the beginning of non-stop hunting action, until Jan 3rd, 2003. When do your State's seasons open... and are you ready? Got any new "toys" for this year? I've got a new shotgun for grouse (20ga Ithaca 37), a new pistol scope on my Blackhawk for gun-deer season (Leupold EER 2x20), new Gold Tip camo graphite arrows and New Archery "shockwave" broadheads for bow hunting, and a couple of boxes of Remington's Hevi-Shot for goose/ducks. This hunting "habit" is pretty costly.
