Maybe it's just the time of year or the weather. You know, opening day seems far away and it's too darn hot to do much without playing with heat exhaustion. So you think about hunting, plan hunts, talk hunting, read about hunting and watch hunting shows. Whatever the reason, every year about this time I start getting the "itch to hunt". It never goes away, it just lessons a little during late Spring and Summer, but knowing opening day is around the corner, makes it worse after I've had a few months off to recoup.
