Shoot? November is not part of the season (5)
I believe the answer is:
'shoot?' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)
'november is not part of the season' is the wordplay.
'november' becomes 'N' (phonetic alphabet: alpha, bravo, charlie etc.).
'is not part of' suggests deleting specific letters.
'the season' becomes 'spring' (spring is a season).
'spring' with 'n' taken out is 'SPRIG'.
(Other definitions for sprig that I've seen before include "Tiny branch" , "What may be flowering" , "piece of holly" , "Small stem with leaves or flowers" , "Small branch or shoot" .)
