Thanks for the encouraging report Charlie. Tell those unit 1 hens to keep their knees together.
My unit 2 initial draw this year improved very slightly ... after 3 consecutive period E years I moved all the way up to period D (whoopeee). So I took advantage of the new 7-day periods to plan a unit 1 hunt spanning the last 2 days of per C & the 1st 3 days of per D. Picked up both those unit 1 permits in the leftover sales. It will mean that I have to come back to home unit 2 for the end-of-perD last few days of my initial draw.
I'll confess that I got greedy seeing the amount of leftover permits this year, & by the time the first weekend dust settled I had permits in the last 4 time periods in 3 different zones. Assuming that I can get off work as much as I'm hoping, gonna be a sleepy guy by the end of the season. Good problem to have.
Last spring season was a weird weather one here ... snowstorm, hail, high winds, most-of-day-fog. Hoping that this year's weather is a bit more boring.
Just got an email from a South Carolina friend, holding up 2 nice toms (they're allowed 2/day, 5/season I believe). Their season started March 15. He'll be done (May 1) by the time I'm starting.
