On this poll you are able to change your vote because I personally can't make up my mind. It's a toss up between spring and fall. I love the spring because of the shed hunting and coyote sniping. Unfortunately I live in Northern Utah so I have to make the commute to either Idaho,Wyoming, or Southern Utah to enjoy the shed hunting aspect.

The fall is nice because of the general deer hunt and observing the diversity of deer that are coming out of the hills including my own. But for some reason I enjoy seeing the deer that come out as Cactus bucks, or One horned deer too. The character is easier to observe during the general season and I often dedicate entire weeks to this time of the year.

I guess if I was restricted only to Utah I would say the fall. In general though I am more active in the spring and the neighboring states provide me with a shed hunting opportunity worth the gas that I spend to get out and see the world. The summer is just too hot and dry. The winter is great but it is just freezing cold out there and there's a stupid holiday that makes me responsible for buying presents and doing all this shopping with my wife to make up for the rest of the year.

In order; Fall, Spring, Summer, Winter. I love fall because of the hunts, I love the spring because of the renewal of life. Summer is too hot, winter too cold.

Don't hate me because I'm different. I cast the only vote for summer. P-doggin is my passion along with motorcycling. Now if I can only figure out how to carry 5 varmint rifles on that bike. :lol:

This is a cool post. I will tell of my favorites in reverse order.

Winter is my least favorite season. It's so cold, and dark so much of the day. The storms are vicious and unforgiving in the winter. Also, when you go outside the sounds and smells are somehow repressed in winter, and the snow and the sky seem to be pushing in on each other and it feels pressurized and claustrophobia inducing. Plus, everything's a burden in the winter. You have so many clothes on that doing simple tasks become difficult and fine motor skills seem to vanish. Not a good season, even if the fishing can be great.

Summer is sooo **** hot! And being a big guy, I don't cope well with the +100 degree days. Plus, everything becomes so scorched and the outdoors and everything in it seem to slow way down, because moving too fast just uses up too much energy. I will say that nothing beats the morning and evening in the summer though, and those times are my favorite time of any season, but they are so fleeting that I can't count summer itself as my favorite.

Spring is the universal season of re-growth, and therefore a beautiful time of year. It's so green and rainy and I can only think of water and wetness in spring. The fishing becomes amazing, and wildlife seems to burst from nowhere in the spring. Spring is a loud and boisterous season with a veritable cacophony of noises spewing forth from nature. It warms up, but stays cool enough to bear the temperatures throughout the day. I love spring.

But fall is the king of all seasons. The cool crispness in the air. The lingering sunlight that allows for extended adventures and extra casts. There seems to be an electric anticipation in the air during the fall, like something exiting is about to happen and if you're at the right place at the right time, you might just be a part of it. The bass are still bighting, the trout come to life, there's deer hunting, and elk hunting. Upland game and waterfowl are suddenly huntable as well. Everyday can be spent in the outdoors pursuing a different wildlife adventure and there are never so many choices as in fall. The colors of the changing leaves are rustic and earthy, and the smells are more vibrant and musky. What a glorious season fall is and how sad that it's already passed us by. :cry: :cry: :cry:

At least there's next year though.

I'm with Bronco (Go Broncos), football and hunting in the fall (fishing is great too). (what's up with losing to the Raiders :evil: very disappointing). I really enjoyed the way J-bass described it as well, good job J-bass. I guess there is a purpose for drunk hillbillys, though slow, and dangerous behind the wheel, you can still serve a purpose :D :wink:

It's true, we're only good at being dumb, recklessly driving while under the influence and poetically describing our love for fall. :D :wink: :wink: :mrgreen: :D
I'm glad you liked it.
