in some European state, hunting season begins in spring, not so in Italy. Here in my country, the first hunting day is 03 September. The first day is even special for me, we are waiting from much time for this great day!!
Every year I move to my hunting place the day before hunt start because this night I can't sleep... I'm to nervous!!! This personal tradition will be also this year: I'll move in the first aftrenoon to the hunting zone, prepare a good place for the night (I love sleeping in the nature, without camping-tend) and take a look of the last game-movements of the afternoon. Then prepare something to eat, drink a bit good vine, smoke a cigarette and think about our big passion: hunting and living outdoor.
The day after, in the morning, when season start, I'm ready and in position....
This year I hunt from a new position where I can see all the valley but I need to shot at longer distance: from 200 to 400 ys. I know, for some of you, this looks like short distance... for me and my good Rem 700 30'06 cal is a long distance, probably our limit...
I can't wait this day!!!
What about your first hunting season day???
