Default Be smart out there tonight guys.

It's not a coincidence that Valentine's Day is exactly 280 before the opening week of Deer season. 280 is the exact gestation period of the female of our species. This is further proof of the lengths women will go to keep us guys at home and out of the woods. Be smart and don't take the bait.

Where was this advice 18 years ago, my daughter was born in the middle of the rut. I'm just lucky she loves to hunt and always wants to go hunting for her birthday.

Try getting away when the wife is 38 weeks pregnant and an emotional mess. That ain't going to happen.

All three of my sons were born in August. I seemed to always be away and hunting A LOT in October, until I would take a break and come home for my Anniversary on November 4th (After the gun opener of course).

Funny this is mentioned. Exactly 9 months and 2 days after my mom & dad married I was born.

And here I thought this thread was about drinking and driving on Valentine's day. Silly me.
