Question What's stopping you from going hunting?

Not enough money?
Not enough time?
Nowhere to hunt?
Don't know rural landowners?
Poor health?
Too much physical work?
Don't know how to hunt?
Did not come from a hunting family or culture?
Nobody mentored you or showed you the ropes?
Don't know others who hunt?
Laws and game regs put you off from this sport?
Other?

I believe Oklahoma has the same kind 24/7/365 season for coyote, dillos and rodents. I believe cougar can be taken year round in Tejas (TAY-hoss) as well.

Time more than anything. My vocation eats up a lot of time in the fall till winter break when I can sneak out for some deer hunting and small game.

Summertime and spring tend to get devoted to fly fishing, my other passion.

I don't hunt coyotes or rabbits so the next season I'll hunt is spring turkey May 1.

Nothing stopes me from hunting! There are some things I don't hunt because I don't want to and I do not consider closed season a bar from hunting, it is part of the process.

I have a unique one as a priest. I sometimes encounter people who are devastated or in crisis. Getting them stabilized and back on their feet sometimes requires some extra counseling and it can mean doing it fairly soon. That sometimes cancels something like plans for a morning hunt.

It sounds like being out in mother nature with a gun and/or a nice hunting dog can do a soul perhaps some good. Good therapy for mind, body and spirit.
