Today is the first day of deer hunting.
I can tell because:
The deer aren't following their usual paths through our area.
The dogs are skittish, jumpy, and hiding under my feet.
In northern Pennsylvania the kids have this day off from school for "Deer Day."
And I hear occasional gunshots in the distance.
This is when I pull out my most important part of my late-November winter gear.
Its not pretty - but this bright orange hat may literally be a lifesaver as I go about my outside chores!
