I'll still try to get out with the Xbow and see if I can stick a nice buck, but that's starting to wind down here even though I have about a month left.  Starting to shift my focus to yotes - I have gotten far more pictures of them than deer on the 2 cameras here  at the house this fall.  Have the night vision scope on the rifle by the door right now, and the carcass of that doe I smoked last week staked about 120 yards behind the house, so sneak out on the deck every hour or so to take a peek with it.   Have deerburger left from last year besides the new meat, so don't really need more in the freezer.  Also, the local processor who has always accepted deer for the Sportsmen Against Hunger program lost his facility to a fire a couple of months ago, so I don't have a place in the county to donate any extras at this time.  Hopefully he's back in business next fall.
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!

I will go down trying. Nothing this past Saturday, Sunday a rain deluge. Going to take off Friday thru next Tuesday and try and squeeze in a backyard hunt around all the holiday suff.

Season ends in Feburary.

 Amazing how all those years passed! I have great memories and  a chance to see if I can get a final buck. If not, does better beware!

I own approx 80 % of a Power line And I too and fed up with National Grids subs they hire for cleaning along the line.It seems they get paid on piece work and do not clean up their mess.They are supposed to cut into smaller pieces and move to the side but that never happens.Any complaints fall on deaf ears. Trespassers are another story.
