Thread Name: The Haggis season - when does it start?
Subject: RE: The Haggis season - when does it start?
Here in Central New York (State not City) we have a variety of the Haggis that while not generally thot to be a game animal usually not hunted till after the spawn in October. The Haggis run is usually triggered by some warm rains and two frosts in rapib succession. The Haggi , plural of Haggis, Haggis being the singular of Haggi , begin to change color on much the same manner and color of the Maple leaves. This makes the Haggis nearly invisible to the eye when not in motion. Great swarms of Haggi hang about under trees in Hustles. Hustles being the name of the plural swarm of Haggi. Like a herd of cattle. The trigger to make the Hustled Haggi hike hither is usually a wind. The entire Hustle may take off enmasse and by doing so be vertually indestinquishable from the Maple leaves.

lately among the Haggis hunters here abouts there has been a Hue and cry about the planned requirement of the migratory Haggis stamp. Haggis Unlimited is planning a protest but the government willout I'm affraid. The stamp is planned to show a hearty Haggis standing on a mountain crag quarter on and viewedfrom below to give a majestic stature to this fine bit of wild game.

Even now I can hear the faint sounds of a Hustle of Haggis as they prepare their trek north to the plains of Scarberia. It figures that the Haggis would go north in colder weather. Obviously a part of their Scottish heritage.
