Counting Days & Making Days Count
For hunters, opening days are an especially important calendar day. I live in Pennsylvania, and here opening day of deer season is a high holiday. For decades it was traditionally the Monday after Thanksgiving. Schools shut down and businesses ran on skeleton crews as roughly three quarters of a million people hit the woods in pursuit of a whitetail buck.
We count down the days. But we should also be making the days count. My last column, "Never Wear Corduroy Pants," was about killing my first buck. Today's column reflects on that event from a perspecitve of more than 50 years. Read "Counting Days & Making Days Count," published August 31 in the Jamestown Gazette.
