Default Emily's Buck

Just got around to downloading pictures off my phone from this past gun season. I sat with my 10 yr. old Tommy again this season looking to get him his first deer. We saw three 8 pts. in the three days we hunted but only one gave us a good clean shot. Unfortunately he missed! LK had a hot doe come through then a parade of nice bucks. He shot a really nice 9 pt (would have been a solid 10 but it had broke off a tine) on opening morning.

My 15 yr old Emily then took a very nice 10 pt. on Saturday afternoon, her first buck while sitting all alone (she has shot two 8's while sitting next to me).

Second season gave us nearly a foot of snow in our area and with bitter cold and blowing wind, we just didn't see that many deer. LK saw the most, maybe 20 total, but that was just a couple of big groups all at once (12 in one group, 7 in another, then a few deer way out of range). Tommy and I saw one deer in 3 days, so as of now his quest continues, probably during the late season in January.

At least we have some venison in the freezer!

Emily's Deer.

Way to go Emily. Maybe you can teach dad a few tricks. Hey does that mean if we ever go to Mich for the sockeyes again we'll be loaded down with "jerky". MMMMM good.
Bravery and Fear are one in the same. It is how you react to them that determines which you have.

Really cool! Thanks for sharing
Is "basstiality" the same as sleeping with the fishes?

I prefer to Die on my feet than Live on my knees

2sac is not bassalarro material.

Super nice job! Anybody would be proud to take those bucks! Is that the Richland Hotel in the background Tom? My buddy got some meat for the table this year from our Wisc. hunt, but I had zero opportunities. I was having trouble staying on stand with the cold. Getting old I guess...
