We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Odd as this sounds, my neighbor took two turkey off his back deck last year - both with bow.
There are so many turkey in the woods in back that I'm surprised that aren't more hunters - we're loaded with the beasties.
I'm probably going to miss the New England trout season this year - which is something that I will miss when I"m down South. Although the South Carolina DNR does a really good job stocking the Lower Saluda River (near Columbia in Lexington County) and there is a hold over population of browns and rainbows up near the dam - the water is cold enough with enough oxygen to keep them over the really warm months. The trout are a favorite target of stripers for some reason, but the population of hold overs is very stable.
Of course the best SC trout fishing is up in the North Western corner of the state along the Georgia/Tennessee line. There are some true monster browns haunting the two lakes up there Jocassee and Tugalo and I fished the Chattooga River last Fall - what a blast. Great browns and rainbow.
