I have seen multiple national brands lately asking the questions
- “How was your season?”
- “How did your season go?”
- “Now that hunting season is over”
Um….it’s not over. Heck, the good part is just starting.
In our part of the world, duck season generally runs until the end of January. This can be the best time to duck hunt. Heck, some years, the ducks are just starting to show up. They are super smart and a challenge at times to get them to decoy but that’s the beauty of it.
Quail season is rolling hard. It runs until the end of January, February or even early March in a few states.
One of our successes has been that we travel and we have identified that the hunting dog calendar is pretty much year round. Hunting season begins for most of the country in September (August really for a few things) and runs into March. If you chase Snows you can go deep into April.
For the folks that are snowed in, they are planning for the off season training. The rest of us will start training the day the season closes.
“How did your season go?”
Ask me again in March.
