Success is all about timing

Hit a deer home run this month

If you like baseball, then you probably watched the World Series games between the Rangers and the Cardinals. If you did, you saw some excellent hitting — Albert Pujols hitting three homers in a game, Josh Hamilton hitting what Ranger fans thought was the Series winner in Game 6.

Hitting a home run does require power, but it demands really good eye and hand coordination. See the ball and put the bat solidly on the ball. Timing is very important when hitting a baseball.

Timing is also important for successful deer hunting. As I often say, I do not get excited come Oct. 1 because our deer are just not active. The weather is usually hot, and with low deer activity, it doesn’t make for good success.

This year I am looking at deer stomachs on several areas in the state to further document deer foods and weight gains of the various age classes over the season.
