My neck of the forest: today is the day | art & life

It’s finally here! Today is November 26th, the opening day of Pennsylvania’s most popular hunting season. Firearms season for white-tailed deer begins this morning and lasts statewide until the December 10 closure.

Where will I greet the dawn? With any luck, I’ll be sitting comfortably about 50 meters from my wife, Karen, who will also be out hunting. The two of us will be spread out on a friend’s property in neighboring Snyder County with some friends.
