My hunting season is shot down the tubes already! God has blessed me with a great paying job. Of course i am grateful for God's favor but since i have been in my new role. My time in the woods is getting very low. I am a ways from retirement but i can't hardly wait!

I know the feeling, although at 66 I choose to keep working. Mostly because it is also a good paying job, and I work 2 weeks on and off 2 weeks. Unfortunately a lot of my weeks on are during various hunting seasons.

On the bright side, I am collecting full social security with no penalty with how much I make.

The worse thing about retirement is that your body is not as ready to do the things you wanted to do 40+ years ago.
I did 12-20 hr. days for 46 years. Now I try to hunt 6 days a week, but most of them are half days. When I do all day hunts out of state/country my body rebels and I have to take a few days off to recuperate. Oh, the Golden Years.....

I replaced the roofing on my house a couple of years ago. wvhitnam, junebug, I am convinced that they make asphalt shingles heavier than they used to. There will be no more throwing a square on my shoulders and running up a ladder.............NOT EVEN CLOSE!

I guess the main thing to remember is having good health, whether you are working or retired, without it either can be a problem everyday. Enjoy life while you can.
I've been retired 13 years & I've never looked back once.

For the past 40 years as a Merchant Marine I have worked a day on day off schedule so I am off 6 months a year. Like John McDonald's Travis McGee, I have been taking my retirement out in installments, so I figure I have 20 years vested

I feel your pain. Retired a year and a half ago but was only off for 7 months before I had to go back due to health care coverage. Retirement health care sucks under 65 and super expensive. Job I have now is fine for what it is but no time off for the first year other than some holidays. This may be the first year I don't get out at all for deer season. Really hard to deal with as November approaches.
