Tomorrow (1/31) marks the final day of the upland bird season in Nebraska for this season. As mentioned in years past (Last Day 2014; End of Season 2013) I do my best to hunt it. The reasons are many but it simply boils down to the fact that I want to be there.
I will spend time hoping to see a bird or two. Hoping that the flock makes it through the rest of the winter in good health. Hoping the nesting season is a resounding success. But I know many of these factors are outside of my control.
I will relive past hunts. Dream about future adventures. And wonder why I didn’t spend more time afield this year.
Here’s to the final day of season…cheers!
