I love to camp, remote areas only, the further away from the hustle and bustle as possible. Deer season is from Sept till Jan 1, Duck and goose season Nov to March, fishing season is year around. I usually go deep sea fishing at least once a year. Last year we tagged and released a 400 lb Marlin. I mostly catch tuna up to 50 or so lbs, more or less. Oh yes, DEAR season stays open all year.
