bitter sweet end of the season

With my final trip scheduled for yesterday my party cancelled because of the forcasted weather.  I wasnt gonna let a forecasted NE snowstorm get by without me getting in some gunning. After some poor shooting on my part, the birds handled nicely the dog was on her game, I got to reflect on this past season, and though it wasn’t the season I am gonna be telling my grandchildren about, it was better than not having a season at all. We had some great folks share some NJ gunning with us from across this great country, we all had fun. Though my hands ache, my skin cracks and my joints hurt it’s bitter sweet to see the season end. In a week or two my batteries will be recharged, carving projects will begin, dog training will start, I guess I must have Diver blood running thru my veins.
