It will be here before you know it. That is for sure. Lots of negative changes around the field we usually hunt, but hopefully the birds will still come

It's great to be prepared Charlie. I'm getting the fever already too but for grouse. I used to brush hog a friends property but it was to clear the way so I could get to my deer stand easier. The tractor was a big old Ford from the 40's that still works well. You don't see many Ford tractors anymore. I love to bounce around on that old Ford. I am big into vintage tractors.

"Power saw". That's what my grandad always called them, and it has stuck with me also. It must have been late 50s or early 60s before grandpa got one and then it seemed like there was always two or three. However I never recall more than 1 being functional at a time. We had better luck with Ford tractors. There was a 2000 diesel, an 8 N, a 2000 gas, and a 4000 Select O Speed. That 4000 schooled me on Holly carbs!
I still have the 2000 gas, it was new in 67, and came to the farm with a yellow 6' Woods 3 point bush hog. There is little paint left on the brush hog, and the gear box lives on several tubes on grease and some bar oil each year. But it's like the man used to say about a Timex it takes a licking and keeps on ticking.

I've always got 3 or 4 rifles sighted in ready for deer as we usually have some property we do damage control .

Shotguns are as ready as they'll ever be , be it for deer or winged creatures .

I quit bush hogging my trails a couple years ago . I just ride the ATV thru three or four times a couple weeks before archery season .

Both my chain saws are sitting in the garage beside my big tractor in case they're needed . The last two weeks I spent cutting up tree's that fell in my yard when a mini twister (for lack of a better term) came thru . I do however have a rather extra large tree that was up rooted in my front woods close to the drive way and the road that goes by the front of our property . That one will get turned into burnable pieces after the first of the year . Now with that being said I can see a Stihl 391 with a 25" bar finding its way to my house soon as my Stihl 291 is only an 18" bar and that tree is a good 35-38" .


This year I'll do a first for me . I'll leave the country in the middle of Virginia archery and not be back in the country until the Monday before election day . Gonna leave for the PI on October 10th stay on Mindanao until the 28th , then back to Manila on the 28th take a side trip to Corregidor and Clark . Then on to Makati November 2nd and 3rd to attend the pre wedding and wedding of one of my nieces . Fly oughtta Manila early November 5th their time and land in Dullus the afternoon of the 5th our time .
