Fall's pre-getting here was marked by shotguns a blasting yesterday AM as the local neighborhood began to fill their freezers with local geese on the pond. The daily limit during this early " nuisance"season is 15 per person. NY for waterfowl shooting has no minimum footage from cottages/houses laws if shotgun shooting over the water here so some of the shooting is quite close and if one isn't awake predawn it wakes one up quickly. Meanwhile scattered early bird salmon fisherman can be seen in the streams and as noted early acorns have begun to drop. And the morning temperatures feel quite brisk although soon enough forty-eight to fifty degrees will feel quite warm. We are not in a rush for fall and are still holding on to the last days of summer as once the deer season kicks in, it lasts plenty long enough.
