I have a favorite blanket. Don't laugh. You probably do to. And if you don't now, you once did. Deny it and I'll just ask your momma, and she'll show me picture after picture of you with your thumb in your mouth and your blanket over your shoulder. My own son was not only attached to a certain blanket, but he also had a favorite corner of the blanket.

One of my past-times that increases between hunting seasons, is cycling. I've been enjoying this activity for nearly a decade. Most of my rides are short enough that I don't have to think too much about water, an energy snack, or any extra equipment.

I remember one of my first trips to Texas. I was going to hunt pigs with a bow at night. The setup went like this. We would get in a blind before dark, and after dark, the pigs would come to a feeder.

It was the funniest sight the other day. At daybreak a tom strolled down the path to a small field just in front of me.

For about two weeks now I've been in a close-down, clean-up phase of hunting. The mornings have been spent behind a desk without any thoughts about the next time I'll get to go back to the woods.
