Since I promised last not to do anything as foolish again as forgetting to mention the beginning of deer archery season earlier this month, I will start off this week by telling everyone black bear season is now open.
However, be sure to check the regulations before hunting, as you could end up with the Department of Fish and Wildlife taking your bear if you mess up. The law in Kentucky is complex about black bear hunting. Of course, archery season for deer and turkey remains in full swing, heading to the firearms season in November.
As some of the Struttin Time readers know, I have been ill and just returned home from the hospital following an operation. I am now in recovery mode, but still plan on leaving October 9 to the Blue Ridge mountains to hunt the “Trappers Trail” one last time.
I hope I can still get it done, but at least I will be giving it a try. That was and is a rough hunt for a young man, let alone a sick, out of shape old man.
You as Struttin’ Time readers can journey with me as we watch the glory of nature change the color of the leaves and cool the weather down. We will enjoy this final trip for several reasons, but most of all it will be our final one.
Meanwhile, hunt safely and be careful in the mountains. And send me your stories.
