Default what's next on the agenda?

Well with deer season coming close to an end, and at an end for some of us I was just curios as to what everyone was looking forward to hunting/doing next? Personally, I'm looking to get into some hogs since they are all over the public land near me, as well as trying my luck at turkey hunting. Never gone turkey hunting, but if it gets me outdoors with a bow I'll try it out. Also looking forward to doing some bowfishing and running trot lines this summer. What about everyone else?

Hogs, predators, changing up a few setups for next season! Timber specialist coming Monday to get a cut plan together as well! This coming season will be a big change!

Woah! Timber specialist? I know where I'm hunting in October haha. That's awesome though. Didn't even know they had specialists for timber. Kinda just assumed that was a Biologist/Conservationist thing.

We moved from Harker Heights, TX to Paris, TX. What made it worse is the fact that we had moved earlier that year from Tennesee back to Texas. So it was as if we would get good and comfortable and then move again. All in all we have moved 3 times since December of 2015.

Basically hiring a Forester to come in and manage our timber cut on 88 acres. Property has never been touched. I'm overrun with mature cedars all around my oaks and need to thin them all so the oaks can reach full potential. Lots of pines and some hardwoods that could use thinning. Cover is there for all wildlife and even selective cutting will still leave plenty. I plan to plant 18 acres of pines as well. Hopefully see a nice chunk of change from the cut. Upgrade all blinds, larger feed pen stations and better bow setups through main travel areas.

My plans are to start baiting hogs while fishing. Then drop jug-lines in the morning, fish for sandbass and crappie all afternoon, Then go crawl up a tree and go to sleep till the hogs wake me up. Shoot a hog. Climb down and take it back to camp about sunrise. Go run jugs to see what's on-em and rebait. Then go fish. Then climb tree and sleep till hogs come in. Repeat till I gotta go home and go to work.

Hoping to break ground on our new home end of Feb, first of March so it is going to be a busy year. Will be mixing in fishing both fresh and saltwater, golf and most likely a free range axis hunt. Not sure what the summer or fall will bring just yet.

Pigs all spring here locally if we can get them more consistent. I aim to put a little more effort into it this year.

March 1-ish is around our turkey season workday at the lease, rebrushing natural turkey bow blinds, refilling feeders, water and putting out cameras to scout for us for a month. Started cottonseed this year so I'm anxious to see how they take to it.

Setting up the feeders for hogs in Georgia next weekend. Then Extreme Bowhunting for a week mid Feb. Then hogs again all summer with the thermal set up. Plus turkeys this spring, and I have the boat I just got to rig out and get to fishing. I think I am going to like being retired.

If I was in PA I would be ramping up for the trout opener in April. I love walking the tight SW PA Laurel mountain trout streams fly fishing natives (wild brook trout). I can't make it back this year so I am hoping I can shoot a bow in time for turkey season.
