So it's here! Fall, and the hunting seasons are opening across the country! Water temperatures are cooling off, and the fish will be feeding to put on fat for winter. It's a great time to get out and enjoy the outdoors.
We are happy to report that the relocation is complete, Mike and Dana are settling in at their new place in Tennessee. This should be interesting, as they plan to try and improve their property with food plots for deer and wild turkey, and may share some videos of this as the project progresses. We are happy to report that a new tractor has been obtained to get some of that work done, and a video of this occasion was filmed! There is also a lot of scouting to be done on the nearby public hunting lands. This got started over the past summer, and continues even now after hunting season opened. It's going to take some time to learn our way around the new back forty! Mike got the deer season started with a few hunts and some more scouting. These initial hunts were unproductive. It was for this reason, with the rut approaching, a decision was reached to fill the tank on the truck and head for more familiar ground. We headed back to Maryland to do some hunting with Michael, and we ended up having a week for the record books! We took out five deer on our bowhunt, four of which were bucks! We also managed to process them all the same week before the hotel reservation expired. We still plan to look for our first Tennessee deer, but you'll find the first videos from this years hunt posted in our "Now Playing" section, with the rest following soon!
But hunting is not all we'll be doing this fall. Now that we have new waters to explore, some fall fishing will be in order. We've also posted a new fishing video filmed as fall got started this year, and we're sure there will be more to come as the leaves change! If that's not enough fishing action for you, check out our "Frugal Fishing" videos filled with fishing tips!
We certainly hope to have some more herping for you this fall. I know Michael and Desiree had planned to have a video ready for this update, but life got in the way. Matt and Siobhan have finally gotten a fall herping video filmed, so we will try and edit that footage, and post it up as soon as we get a chance!
Chris has been promising us a video for sometime, so we'll lean on him a bit to provide some fresh content too. Until then, you'll find some past herping action from him posted on our "Herping Maryland" page.
We look forward to an exciting fall, and will be bringing you fresh content as the leaves change and the days shorten and cool. We hope you'll check back often and join us on all of our outdoor adventures!
