    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...

    When I Was A Kid ...

    I remember going with one of my friends. We were just cruising and had a shotgun in the caddy with us. It was my friend's mom's car. There were some doves flying along side the car so my friend says grab the wheel, as he reaches for the gun. I grabbed the wheel and he had the...

    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...

    Hunting

    I know that hunting is seen by many individuals as cruel, but without hunting many animals would over bred and become diseased. I hunt with a bow, a rifle, a gig, or camera. I do not hunt for a trophy, the head of an animal just does not appeal to me. But I do not oppose the...
