Now I'm more of a seasonal hobbyist than a year round, occasional, or opportunistic hobbyist.
My hunting season usually last from october to april depending on the temperature. As the weather warms up and gets nicer I don't really hobby as I do outcalls and the SPs get less discreet as the weather gets nicer. When they don't have a jacket to cover them up they become more noticeable when they wonder around trying to find their way. For me it is good to take time off from the hobby and recharge the batteries so you don't take it for granted and you build up the hunger again for SPs.
