It’s nice to be able to get into the woods and escape the news for a few hours a day. It’s been really hot as it tends to be in August so I have limited hunting time from a few hours before full dark. So far the game is sticking to hickory nuts.
The pear tree is loaded down this year.
The pawpaws are starting to ripen.
On a side note, if you forget your bug repellent, you can use the leaves of the pawpaw tree as a natural repellent.
My recently purchased 12 gauge model 31 is still an ongoing project as I hunt with it . After some polishing on the receiver to remove some rust, I did some cold bluing and I think it is not too bad at all.
