So what do y'all do when it's done?
How many of you spring hunt? And for what? Turkey, Bear?

Me and my wife do a lot of fishing. Generally start by April 1st and fish right up until the rifle season opens, about the 3rd week in November.

Bought a camper last month so that'll keep us occupied too. Might even use it during hunting season, I'm looking into a lease that has camping on the property.

So let's here about your other sports,hobbies or addictions (legal ones of course)

Well that gets me a little, there is always something
You can hunt. If you are a diehard hunter. Woodchucks
Crows etc. Its like the people on TV. Make a big deal out
Of opening day of the rifle season until it close's. They think that
Is all there is too gun/ hunting season.
I start striper fishing in April then Turkey hunt then open
Up camp on lake Champlain. Till bow season.
And hopefully due a lot of. shooting on the range.

We keep getting snow on top of snow and the lakes are frozen.

Normally I'd be shed hunting right now and crappie fishing on nicer days. I ice fish usually but haven't this year.

Not terrible to have a break though. Before I know it, it will be camping season, mushroom season, turkey season, and the crappie will be spawning all at once and I'll be running around like a chicken with my head cut off.

Shed hunt and predator hunt until spring turkey season. Then turkey hunt and bass fish. Then it moves into just fishing til August and then big game hunting starts again.

Oh yeah from the beach is an altogether different game. My last 12 years of fishing on L.I. was from the beach.
We mainly targeted stripedbass and bluefish.

caught a 5 1/2' ray year before last, one of the worst @$$ whoopins I took in my life, worth every second. was a beach wedding going on when I dragged it on the sand, the whole wedding party including the bride came to see it. caught it on a 12' 15/50# rod and a lever drag that made 36# of drag, was all I wanted.

Fun stuff!! Where you doing this beach fishing?

I cant say that I don't miss the beach at times but lake fishing here in TN. definitely has filled the void!
