Let's see. Currently it is spring so I vote for spring
Spring and Fall. That time of change always has me out and about and enjoying things, including my pipes. Winter out in the country sitting by a fire and looking out at the snow and that fantastic quiet is pretty good. Summer's long days with the sun still up past 9;00 and the great sunsets isn't hard to take either.
Guess I just voted for year round.
Autumn. It is not too cold, not too hot and it is hunting season.
Autumn is also my favorite.. As i go fly fishing for salmon for a week and enjoy smoking my pipe right before first light. To me it's so enjoyable watching the river come alive with the steam coming off the water, and the leaves all changing color. To me thats a sign that it's time to slow down, relax, as the days will be getting shorter and old man winter is just around the corner.
wabbit season..... Duck season...
Spring and Fall are tied for first .. Summer and Winter second . I might smoke a heavier blend at times in Winter and a lighter one in Summer . I'm mostly smoking Burley blends , so I dont change it up much . Burley is fine all year and I smoke the same amount in all seasons
Autumn, with early spring a close second. I don't like smoking anything during the day when it gets too hot. And I also dislike freezing my a-double off in the winter if I have to smoke outside.
In Idaho we have a year around open pipe season. I can hunt for a pipe day or night without needing a license or tag. No limit on what you have harvested as long as you are 18+ years old. Most pipe/tobacco hunters have nice trophies displayed of their captures with storys of fond memorys to tell relating to them.
I voted for Winter. Snowy and cold outside. Warm pipe bowl in your hand with no place to go..just relax and smoke.
I vote for autumn. Nothing like a crisp colorful day in the Michigan uplands watching pointers and shorthairs, carrying a double gun and smoking.g a pipe. I do not smoke much in the summer, I just HATE heat. But come fall and winter, I smoke a ton!
Aren't you a fire fighter?
I hate the stifling, humid summer heat down my way, too. I vote for winter.
Yes, but it doesnt matter what the temp is outside, it's always the same inside a house fire. it is nice to come out of a fire into cooler temps, however.....lol
