Chad Love: Doomed Resolutions

2008 is almost in the books, and with it go all those goal-oriented lies I happily deluded myself into stating at this very time last year. I now have a fresh and unsullied set of lies ready to go. All I need is a good hangover cure, a few spoonfuls of black-eyed peas, a short-lived sense of purpose and optimism and a week or two in which to stave off reality.

To be honest I get a little melancholy this time of year because I know that January is the final gasp, the last fading exhalation of the season before the deep freeze of late winter sets in.

But hey, I've still got two weeks of bow season, a couple more weeks of duck season if the water stays open and the quail and pheasant are still out there mocking me. Plus, the good folks at Cabela's just sent me their official February survival kit. They may call it a spring fishing catalog, but that and a warm, cozy bathroom is all I need to make it through those long late-winter days.

Happy New Year's everyone, and may all your hopelessly optimistic and ultimately doomed New Year's resolutions come to fruition for at least one fleeting moment. 



To me all New Years is is another excuse for people to get drunk. I dont understand celebrating the human idea of time... but if it is a big deal to anybody else, go ahead and have a great time. If I ever feel the need to alter one of my habits, I wont wait until the New Year to do it. On another note, deer season has been done for almost a month in New York and this season pretty much sucked for me because of the booming coyote population in the north country of New York. So since deer season ended, Ive been out for the coyotes. Havnt had any luck yet, but Im starting to get the hang of it.
