DEER HUNTING OPENER 1986
LOWER HOWARD LAKE SPORTSMANS
Its windy and cold on opening day, with conditions like
these, deer will just lay. So you sit in your stand with nothing
to do but try to keep warm and take in the view.
Its often been said that its so damb much fun to hunt for a deer
with a powerful gun. But I can't help thinkin as I sit here and wait
that's it's the poker and drinkin we appreciate.
By ten AM we've all heard the call so we go back to the shack for
some "Eggs Mc Paul" ! and by three PM its hard to believe that one's
been dragged in and there's more to retrieve.
When you as a rookie must clean your first buck, without some
advice you're shit out of luck. So you hike to the road and swallow
your pride and you find someone else to open the hide !!
As dinner is cooking the stories are told, it's a wonder that deer
tales never get old!
When you hunt as a party its an un-written law that you share
everything, including the squaw! If someone don't share, it up-sets
the group and it lowers the chances for meat in the soup.
But our new guy in camp has slayed his first deer, and the salty
old vet has tagged his this year. So all in all if we see no more
game, we've had a GREAT time and were all glad we came.
