A feeling of satisfaction, contentment, that feeling that you get when a job is completed and well done. I had this exact feeling a couple weeks ago in early October.
I had been hunting three times. The first hunt, an afternoon jaunt, I let a buck walk, even though he presented a perfect, broadside, 12-yard shot. It was getting late and I didn't want to be blood trailing and field dressing in the dark. I guess my age is showing.

I was kind of hoping that we would have had a round of frost here to turn off the lawn mowing app in this area of Lebanon. We are planning to decorate the yard for Halloween, with a few tombstones and other haunted houses thingys, but to get all of the stuff out will require mowing around them.

I have a novel idea of how we can decide the eight teams to battle it out for the national championship.

I can still smell, sometimes, even see it. The clean crisp smell of late autumn, the smell of the leaves as I gathered some kindling. The dusty smell of the one room cabin, the ashes in the old wood stove and the shallow, muddy river. I had use of the place and permission to hunt the farm for a couple weeks and I had come to kill the genetically best of the breed.
