No deer this weekend-argh! I was looking forward to getting one myself but no luck. We all hunted this weekend, hubby, son #1, and I. Hubby saw a small spike and did NOT shoot it. It was walking in the direction of son #1’s blind, he was hoping it kept on going that way.
I guess the spike must have veered off in a different direction because son #1 never saw it (he was probly text messaging someone and not watching!). He said he saw 2 does. Probably the same 2 I saw last night.
It still is a bit chilly in Oklahoma. I do not think it ever reached 60 degrees yesterday. The winds are supposed to be picking up. I hate hunting in high winds. I doubt I’ll go out if it blows hard.
On the last day of the season, if my buck tag isint filled, I am allowed to shoot 1 doe. I hope I see this here doe on the last day, I’ll be hunting for sure.
Early this morning, the Old Guy was speeding around and bucking like a 2 yo. He has not bucked that high in ages! Usually he jumps sideways and crow hops around, not this morning. He was in an all out fit, bucking bronc style. I am happy he is feeling good!
Thanksgiving is already here. This Fall has zoomed by. The weatherman said it is going to be 75 degrees on our Turkey Day. My 1st Thanksgiving in Oklahoma, I shot the biggest deer of my hunting career. it field dressed at 140 lbs. It was about 75-80 degrees that day. I nearly had a heatstroke dragging that big bugger and my rifle the 2 miles it took me to get out of the woods.
But, it was worth every step of the way.
It is going to be another gorgeous day today.
Wee One and I are going to walk to the Goat Ranchers down the road and visit. He needs some fresh air (me too!) fresh outside air makes me feel better. In fact, I am begininng to think I am addicted to it.
I am only going to half-ass do my house cleaning today, because I’ll just have to repeat it all over on Wednesday for Thanksgiving.
