Whenever I tell people that I live in THE COUNTY their first response is “It’s so cold up there and the winters are sooo long!” This is not always the case. I spend a lot of time riding my ATV on the hundreds of trails and woods roads where ATVing is allowed. Without a doubt late September and early October is the optimal time for this.
In the past week I’ve been fortunate enough to have encountered several moose, two black bears, and numerous partridge. I use the excuse that I’m going bird hunting, but the truth of the matter is I consider a good HUNT one in which I see birds, shoot at several, but kill none.
The following photos are the real reason why I do it
It’s true that fall has its downside (Like what follows) but I still look forward to it every year. The crisp, sometimes frosty mornings followed by sunny days when the temperatures reach the upper sixties and lower seventies (although this year we’ve had several days in which the National Weather Service has posted temps in the eighties) are idyllic. When people ask me what is the best time to visit I send them the pictures above.
Anyone up for some Bird Hunting?
