Well for those of us who look forward to the fall hunting season not so good. The warm weather, the tree's holding there foliage and the lack of frost to kill off the ground cover make for poor conditions for the fall hunter.
September and October are gone now and I have yet to go to the woods. Today is the first day of November and we have had only one frost so far and the tree's are now starting to show some color and dropping there leaves. We have fifteen days until our opening of the gun deer season. Only fourteen days left of our fall turkey season and finely the temps are dropping below the sixty mark during the day, it's time to take to the woods.
Time to do some scouting for the up coming deer season, or to be lucky enough to get a fall turkey for the Thanksgiving day table.
Time to just sit back and have a little something to eat and and enjoy the woods.

It was a good weekend. We had good weather with a lot of people stopping by and asking a lot of great question.

There is a small pocket sewn on the front of the bag. This is the second bag that I have used vinegaroon to dye the leather. This is a great size for a fire starting kit. The bag is the same size as the one I made for myself. I carry lose ball and tow for shooting or cartridges in mine along with a couple of extra flints and a small turn screw in the front pocket. I can do all of my loading from this bag.
