Ok all my fellow students out there it is time to whip out those textbooks and plows! So it is that time of year again school is starting back right about the time the fall plots are starting to spring up. If you are like me then you are probably finding yourself thinking more about that spread on a monster buck than you are about your algebra spreadsheets. As you look out your school window and see crisp brown and yellow leaves hitting the ground that hunting itch is becoming harder and harder to scratch.

Since the fall, hunting season is upon us and our food plots are beginning to show life scouting is becoming a necessity. Oh but wait I have to study! Take your books with you it is a great way of killing two birds with one stone. If you are having trouble, adding or subtracting then use the deer in the field. I mean if there is five deer in the field one leaves then now there are four. Have to write an English paper; base it around deer hunting. It is a great way to keep our short attention span in check.

In addition, if you are like me and are getting some late season plots in the ground do homework first. That way you are not rushing with big machinery as it can be dangerous. Plus, it will keep the parental units happy when there is an A+ beside the first deer of the season picture on the fridge.

In all seriousness, though your education is more important than a hundred big bucks. So even as the seasons are drawing you in do not let your focus or mind set be changed away from schoolwork. School only takes a few years to finish but it makes a big difference in the end. Think of it this way without an education, you cannot get a very good job, no job means no money, and no money means no hunting license, no bullets, no new gear. You owe it to yourself, and to the sport you love, to get an education.

So to everyone out there be safe and smart this hunting season so you can see the next one. Let this year be the one to make your friends and family proud of what you can do. Above all else, remember to enjoy God’s great creation and share it with others. Be safe in the 2009-2010 hunting season![wpg_thumb height=”200″ width=”180″]
