no deer, back to work

well, no deer as of the end of the regular season. time to go back to work.

it was certainly nice to get back out in the woods with my buddies and spend a week away from work.

the excella performed perfectly, pulled the batteries out for the season to await the deep freeze. i went through about 1 1/2 bottles of propane to run the furnace, mid 40's and low 30's at night, nice and toasty inside!

on the bright side, black powder season for deer starts tommorow.

maybe i'll dig out the .50 cal and see if i can get one that way!

john

David,

Did he walk with a bad limp? It looks like the buck I hit last week in Minnetonka.

Hunting Picture

This picture shows the extent that John will go to get that deer. Here he has discarded the bright colored outfit and gone with the camo look. He has even sought out higher ground to spot any possible deer activity in his area. All this and not a single deer in sight!

Way to go John.
Our hunt ended on Sunday. It was a pretty good year. We took 4 deer for three of us. (we were each allowed two this year) 2 bucks, a big doe and a fawn.
I took the doe and the fawn. Bought a new rifle this year - a Tikka T3 .270 cal. with a 6x9 Leupold scope. Made a pretty cool shot on the fawn. Normally we don't get to shoot much over 100 yds but I was sitting on the edge of an old gravel pit and watched him browse for about a half hour - hoping something bigger would come out. He kept moving farther and farther away and it started to get dark so I said what the heck and pulled the trigger.
It dropped him in his tracks. The following morning I paced off the distance and counted 218 paces. Been telling folks I'm more proud of my shot than the deer.
Oh, just to keep this on topic. Yes we stay in my Overlander. Make big breakfasts in the morning, drink a little ale, barbeque and play cribbage at night. Who could ask for more??
Too bad it's over for us here.
Good luck to you.
Jerry

John glad ya'll had a good hunt, we havn't gone yet. Over the thanksgiving holidays we all go to my grandparents and hunt. There is about 35 of total. Some of us hunt while the others eat. Everybody usually winds up hunting sometime or another though. My son killed a seven point last year and he can't wait till the weekend. I have a good camping recipe for deer meat.
Cut the tender loin into small pieces soak in dales for about 4 hours, wrap a piece of onion around it then wrap a piece of bacon around that. Then grill
It's pretty good. Happy hunting
Dawn
