Deer 2012

Posted: November 19, 2012 in Miscellaneous

We just completed deer hunting weekend for 2012. That weekend always starts on Friday evening with “Shorty” serving up his world famous, well famous in his world anyway, bacon potato corn chowder. No, it is not healthy.

Saturday morning was extremely foggy, extremely! For all my fellow deer hunters out there you know that fog is not our friend. At 6:20 AM is when it became legal to start the hunt, due to the fog we weren’t able to see anything and get any shots off until nearly 8:00 AM.

If you look hard in the center of that iPhone photo, and I mean very very hard, just 25 yards from my rifles business-end is a small doe standing there staring at me. You probably won’t see her, when I look at this photo that I took I don’t even see her but trust me she is there. I let her and her three doe friends go as I was only hunting bucks this weekend.

Hunters from the farm next to our property shot this nice nine point buck but it got away from them, they trailed it on to our land where it came to rest & passed in our creek. We were nice enough to allow them to come onto our land and retrieve the deer. Most land owners are not so nice. Okay truth be told, these hunters were young 20-something girls who were so excited about this deer that we just didn’t have the heart to tell them no, get off of our property.

Ultimately, it was a very unproductive hunt for us as we were really just looking for bucks. However Andrew, who had yet to get a deer in his five years of deer hunting, did finally get one in the crosshairs and harvested this nice doe. Congratulations Andrew!

That pretty much sums up our weekend, how was your weekend?
