We're in the middle of one of my least favorite months of the hunting year. To put it bluntly, March sucks. In my neck of the woods, whitetail season is over; I can't blast any ducks or geese and to make things worse, I can't even go squirrel hunting. Every hunter knows June, July and August sing the same tune, but that's a bit different, at least the weather's nice and the beaches are open.
So, in the spirit of springtime and to aid my fellow hunters, I've put together this guide to milking this month for all it's worth.
Top Three Reasons To Love March
1. National Frozen Food Month
So, let's celebrate National Frozen Food Month by trying out those recipes we've been neglecting. Bide the time until turkey season with a little salt, pepper, flour and your trusty skillet. Check out this site for recipes that will make March a bit more than just a hunter's purgatory.
Women hunters, take this time to let your husbands and boyfriends know that women's history is important. So important, in fact, that you have to show your true mettle by doing most of the hunting this year. The day when men got to have all the fun in the field, well, that's history.

3. National Bone Collector's Month
This "sport" is for all of us who'd rather be in the woods than anywhere else. It's also good if you're not handy in the kitchen and you happen to be single. Head out to your favorite spot and key in on the most traveled areas—chances are you'll find a few sheds within walking distance. March is a great time to learn some new terrain, and gain knowledge about the genetics of the quarry in your area. Be sure to take full advantage of your chance to collect some bone, you'll take home much more than just a few antlers.
