Season 9, episode 2

Nope. Not mine. Or Dad’s. We struck out again this past weekend. We saw coyote and bear droppings (the bear was really cool because it was on the path to our sky condo). Dad was able to jump a few does but no bucks. No scrapes or rubs – are any of you seeing this as well? I am hoping that with a full moon on Thursday, rain all day Thursday and it getting colder here, that come Friday, I have a picture to post that is actually mine. The above deer was shot by my brother in law – 8 points and 225lbs. He got is at 8am on Saturday.

    Hang in there! Your time is coming!

  4. We found a deer like that a couple years ago. My brother in law is a biologist and said when that happens, the deer has been injured on the opposite side of the single spike. Weird, I know!

Got it!

Today the any deer (really, doe) permits were released and Dad got one!!! Between finding that out, all of the posts on Twitter with friends and followers posting photos of elk, antelope and other critters they have shot, I can not wait until deer season starts. ...

Sharing the news with the family

On Christmas Eve, we told my parents. To say Dad was shocked is an understatement. This is the last entry for what it was like to be pregnant during hunting season. It is pretty surreal to think about the next hunting season and the fact that come November (or opening...
