Hopeful Week

Amy, Roan, and Dave on the Phat Boy skiff, Baytree Island, Virginia


We are back in Maryland, I'm nursing somewhere around 300 tick bites (lost track after about 200, so the real number is a guess), but the real storyline is that this week could hold some really great times. My workload will be back down to a "dull roar" and I'm a little more settled into my teaching routine, so what else could be going on?

-Resident Goose season opened today

-Dove season opened today

-We will probably have hurricane-related surf by the end of the week

In another two weeks, the fish will start biting again (as temperatures begin to let up), bow season will start, and teal season will also get underway.

They're chigger bites, not tick bites. Why do you keep calling them tick bites?

Goose Season opened here on Tuesday . . . however hot temps appear to be keeping them off their regular schedules making hunting FRUSTRATING! Well at least I have been able to get in a fair amount of dog work and call practice!
