Hunt solo, no waiting at the landing for someone to show up, never have to feel like you let someone down if it was a poor day, nobody drinking your good scotch and then bringing out Black Velvet like it was awesome stuff, never getting stuck with the cooking AND the dishes,  and never arriving at your spot and finding your hunting partner and a few buddies already taking up the space.  Solo hunting has it's virtue.
After the first shot the rest are just noise.

And don't have to worry about my legal weed going up in smoke while picking up the deeks and someone shooting my one or two hen mallards that wonder my way every season. Oh crap, now who can I get to take it home?

Well there's always football and fishing......  time to take up trail cams and get outdoors.  Change is good just don't let the recliner get to firm a grip on you  :chuckle:

Had a major change after my wife got laid off after almost 20 years the day before April fools and now our income is almost slashed if half.  She has since started some part time temporary work while hunting for a new full time job.  After years of buying fancy shotguns, decoys, ammo, and other supplies now I remember the red sky in the morning but wasn't the sailor that took warning.

Appreciate the advice and hope it helps the new people wanting to get into hunting are reading how helpful seasoned hunters are.
