What October Means to Me:


This is a pretty wide open subject. From Oktoberfest and other fall festivities, Halloween, Hunting, Bonfires, Camping Trips, Leaves in transition, whatever you can think of that happens in October.

I live in Southern California, so just about the only thing that happens here is that I get to see some clouds.  This picture was taken at sunrise.

Fall in Iowa means unpredictable weather hot to cold, rain to snow. For our family it means busy, busy, busy. School, Band, Hunting, Fishing, Camping and family, family, family. Enjoy the seasons while you can. I would add a picture as soon as I figure out how to upload one. If anyone could help with that let me know.

50 Post will unlock the picture tool. Until then email them to a willing member or moderator.
Folks ain't got a sense of humor no more. They don't laugh they just get sore.

Need to follow the rules. Just hard to determine which set of rules to follow

Ilya, that's a very nice photo. I really like the colors that you have there.


Kathi, once you have fifty posts you will be able to add photos.

Besides bowhunting, October means COLLEGE FOOTBALL to me.

And college football sometimes involves a pre-game flyover...

Isn't that the truth. There isn't much that can compete with on a Saturday outside of Hunting, than some College Football.


Great picture Ted.

I don't think I can post my pic based on forum rules - Skylar has seen it, though, and it is definitely bowhunting-related.

Man for the last two weeks I've been enjoying a huge harvest-moon moonrise.  That coupled with angry clouds and fall colors on the leaves ahs been breathe taking!!!
 
Unfortunately I never have my camera with me and by the time I get to one it's already passed.
 
I am aboutto heaed out for a 3.5 hour drive to mid -state for my very first Turkey hunt!  I am completely stocked!  It not far from Letterkenny Depot near Tuscarora Mountain and it's supposed to be loaded with Turkey!!!  I am bring both Bow and Shotgun as Deer Archery Season is still on there too!
 
Turkey opening day is tomorrow!!! Yippee  Yippee  Yippee
 
If the Turkey come close enough I'll bow them, that or if I see a deer...
I know its a pipe dream but I'd love to come home with BOTH...

I've already got the camera in my daypack! WinkCool
 
The landowner showed me a picture from about 3 years ago.  A flock of over 40 turkeys all in the same field...
 
 I'll be enjoying the scenic route getting there too...Johnstown, Altoona, Deadman's curve...
