Summer Hunting Doldrums

It happens every year about this time. The hunting doldrums have set in – a true period or state of inactivity, stagnation, or depression, at least in terms of my hunting activity. Turkey season was a complete bust. I made it out three times, talked to a couple of birds and then couldn’t find the gumption to get out of bed to hunt them.

2019 Vermont Turkey Season: Irritating Birds

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m an inexperienced turkey hunter, and you’d agree if you spent any time hunting with me. The 2019 Vermont turkey season got off to a soggy start, so I spent my time working instead. I sat out the Wednesday opener and likewise on Thursday. Turkey hunting is fun, but I’m not to the point where I enjoy it so much that the thought of sitting in a downpour gets me out of bed at 3:30 in the morning. Perhaps someday I will reach that level of turkey hunting addiction. That day has not yet arrived.

“Hey look, Bud. There are a couple of hens walking through that field,” I said to Sam as I was dodging RV sized crates while driving along the infamous Route 5 in Vermont.  It’s springtime in Vermont, and turkeys are on the brain.

5 Hours with a Forester

Forester, Vermont

“I have $100, do I have $110?” the auctioneer hollered from the podium at a recent benefit auction I attended. I raised my number once again. It’s not every day you have a chance to bid on five hours with a forester.“I see $110, how about $120?”The guy behind me proved to be a worthy opponent. I wondered if he knew he was bidding against a guy that doesn’t own any land to speak of. My wife hid her head. Everyone at my table wondered what I was doing. “Are you guys thinking of buying some land?” a friend asked.

For Immediate Release: April 1, 2019Media Contact: tim@the4pointer.comWindsor County, VT – Local Hunter, Tim Biebel, made a major life decision over the weekend – He’s running for Governor.“I haven’t told my wife yet…or my kids…or anyone,” Biebel said. “I figured a press release was the best way to inform everyone at the same time. I’m sure my wife will understand my reasoning. I’m not sure about my kids – one of them is barely old enough to talk. I doubt he even knows what a governor is. Right now he only cares about toy trains.”

Dropped: Project Vermont

Dropped, Project Alaska

January is a particularly awful month, followed closely by February and then March. To make it worse this year, my wife has convinced me to join her in this crazy food diet called the Whole30. As near as I can tell, it’s a cleansing diet plan designed by people who enjoy banging their head against the wall and somehow have a unique ability to convince others to do the same all while telling them it’s beneficial in the end. The rules are simple – if you walk into a store looking for something to eat because you’re hungry, you might as well turn around and leave if they don’t sell meat (without additives), almonds, avocados, or bottles of water.Last week, I found myself staring out the window wondering if I’d ever see the sun again when I got the idea to pop my copy of Dropped: Project Alaska in the DVD player to pass the time and help me forget about the rumble in my stomach.

Dave’s Stand.

Tree Stand, Ladder Stand

His stand sat empty all year, perhaps as a fitting reminder of his passing, but mostly because there were no deer travelling by it. Sometimes I can be a dumb hunter – going back to the same place over and over because it used to be good – but this year I figured out fairly…
