Today is Sat. December 17-th . It started snowing around 1:00
So on the spur of the moment , myself & my wife Carol
decided to go out hunting with the muzzleloader. We arrived at camp around
2:45 pm. I decided to go right to my groundblind, as the winds were n/north west at 9-mph, which is Ideal
for the one groundlind I chose to hunt . Along the way to my blind I saw 3- sets of fresh tracks, in the hour old
snow. I couldn't help be excited with the fresh snow , the fresh tracks, & the winds couldn't have been better at
9- mph. I don't know folks I was out there maybe 25 minutes , when the 3 deer I seen the tracks from appeared out of
the swamp thicket to my right where I entered the woods from . It was about 3:30 pm. They must have been laying
there just inside the swamp, where I had seen the tracks enter the swamp. As the deer moved out from the swamp towards the
woods , I took aim after I decided they were all nice does. I aimed & squeezed off a shot with the muzzleloader ( Boom!!!)
. I seen the big doe drop in her tracks after the smoke cleared lol . What a qwik hunt I thought lol :) . I'm glad
though as the temps. were dropping fast. It was 16 degrees by the time I got back to camp with the deer brrrrrrr. Upon returning
to camp , my wife Carol who didn't hunt today due to the extreme cold, said to me when she heard the shot fire , she said
"daaang" she told me she wasn't able to finish only 2 & 1/2 hands of solitare before she heard boom lol :) & figured
I scored. Well after deciding that we would donate the next deer we took & God Blessed us with that opportunity,
We are very greatful . I hope that alot of hunters were able to donate a deer or so, to the local food pantries in their areas.
Its a wonderful gesture to give something back when we are lucky enough too take an extra deer. Since our hunting party had
already had taken 4 deer this season, we are more than happy to donate this one.
To the folks who process all these deer for the various venison donation
programs. Myself & wife Carol want to thank you from our hearts for the good deeds you do, proccessing the donation
deer for free. May God continue Blessing all you Butchers for doing so , so that others less fortunate may share in our
Well My wife Carol & I want to wish Everyone out there a very
Happy , Healthy, Holiday Season From Our home to yours .
May God continue Blessing each & everyone of you !
