DEER HUNTING 1991
On opening day the forest was banging, and by Sunday AM we had five
of them hanging. We thought that last year couldn't be beat, but this
years hunt was really a treat. Its true that "Real Men" hunt the whole
season, but with plenty of veni I guess there's no reason. So instead
of us hunting two weekends this year, we will all meet at my house and
process the deer !
Yukon was back from his two year hiatus but still don't relinquish
his visitor status! With a new scope mounted and his doe tag in hand,
he'd have plenty of action if he'd hunt the rite stand !
The big guy called Kujo is known for one shot, but after four clicks
and nine rounds only two deer he got! Its great that his efforts took
us two doe, but his nickname of "One Shot" is certain to go !
The veteran took his deer and Butch shot a spike. Rudolph keeps bragging
but that's what he's like! The old man who last year had him no luck
won money at black jack and shot a big buck.
Our shack in the woods, a humble abode is owned by the mice and its
thirty years old. Its getting too small for six full grown men and with
sons getting older it soon could be ten. So next year we're thinking its
time to expand and put a new shack on that cleared piece of land. I
hope we can do it, it sure would be nice, but the old shack is still
good in spite of the mice !
The poker and black jack, the food and the drinking, the smart talk
and rudeness are all great I'm thinking. But the thrill of the hunt
and respect for the game are the primary reasons all of us came. If
hunting were cancelled for a shortage of deer, I'd still hunt my stand
with no weapon next year !
