Bourjaily: Sign of the Times
By Phil Bourjaily
How popular is archery season in Iowa? It’s so popular this sign and two or three others like it recently sprang up along the gravel roads running through our crowded local Wildlife Management Area. I can guarantee a whole lot of bowhunters see them.* I guess some people regard mobs of hunters as competition, while this entrepreneur sees them as an opportunity.
What’s next? I’m thinking pizza by the slice delivered right to the treestand could be a real money maker. I’ll call the business “Scent Free Delivery” and make all my drivers wear rubber boots and camo.
*You can bet the deer on the area look up. In fact, they’re afraid to look down.
