    It's the last weekend of deer season

    where I live as I sit in my favorite stand watching day break. I killed a really nice buck here on Nov. 22nd. I hate when deer season ends. I don't really have any more room in the freezer since I've killed 4 deer and a hog so far and have plenty of meat to last for a while...

    I love going in the woods.

    Finding a tree or a good spot on the ground and then becoming absorbed in everything around watching the animals feeling like this is where you were born to live at.

    If there is something

    that wiggles, walks or flies and it's in season then I am probably pursuing. I have always enjoyed the outdoors and use every excuse to get in the woods with a bow, muzzle loader, rifle or shotgun.

    Since And Early Age

    I have been hunting.  Some of you may not believe this, but a kid walking down the road with a rifle on him had the cops or sheriffs stop, but it was just to ask how hunting was.  Usually asked your name, your parents name a general idea of where you lived, but that was...
