On Notice

Dear 10 Point buck on my trail camera,
Today is September 22. In 1 month and 1 day, Dad and I will be dragging you out of the woods. So, please enjoy the last few weeks – frolic in the woods, munch the apples under those 5 apple trees, knock up a few hoes does and enjoy the Maine weather.

See you in 37 days

~E
