I’ve been going pretty much non-stop since September 1st (the beginning of Dove season). Since then I’ve driven over 2,000 miles to three different hunting areas, and then driven up to Oklahoma for the Labor Day blog shoot with Jennifer, EvylRobot, Warrior Geek, AEPilotJim, and others (which was a blast BTW – you should go if you can next time).
Then this weekend is the Gun Blogger Rendezvous in Reno NV, which I simply am not going to make due to severe time constraints. I’m shooting a 3-Gun match this weekend and then rushing back home for my wife and I’s birthday party, so tonight was spent cramming magazines and making sure the competition guns and rig were all ready to go. I’ll be shooting the Mossberg M590A1 instead of my normal Remington 870. Probably won’t be much difference in my times, as long as I remember the tang mounted safety as opposed to the crossbolt.
This is all in addition to my normal blogging/writing duties at the day job and attempts to keep up with the other clients and my own work at home. Hopefully next week will slow down a bit, but I doubt it. I’ve got more hunting trips scheduled, articles to write and deadlines to meet. The life of a gun and outdoor writer may be fun, but it can be incredibly hectic this time of year!
