Tis The Season
I know, I know. You have finally taken the required safety courses and purchased your large firearm, and already the season is ending. Yes, today is the last day of Hurricane Season. In case you rush out looking to land that hurricane on the last day, some rules to remember.
You may shoot only hurricanes. If you come across a Tropical Storm or Depression, even though it may be named, you cannot shoot it until it becomes at least a Category 1 hurricane.
Only one hurricane per season. Though the quantity of hurricanes has risen in the last decade, officials have not yet approved raising the limit per hunter. That may happen next year if hurricanes appear to be as over populated as they were this season.
You cannot shoot a hurricane after today. Yes, there is a named storm in the Atlantic right now that may become a hurricane. But after today, you have have to just let it go.
Finally, do not despair. If you purchased a lifetime license, you will have plenty of hurricane hunting opportunities in the next decade. Besides, landing that first hurricane always catches people off guard. Especially the cleaning and cost of preperation.
Also, in just a few short months, you have a hunt in which to participate.
It will be BASEBALL SEASON!
P.S.: Please remember your gun safety.
For example, do not shoot at apparently unoccupied out houses.
Also, do not shoot at an animal standing between you and your kid. You may shoot your kid instead.
