Early December

Early December

Postby flipper » Sat Dec 05, 2015 3:48 pm

It's a beautiful Saturday afternoon in the woods, December 5. I have seen young bucks chasing and heard a lot of grunting over the past 2 weekends. This evening I'm in what I call the hog farm stand. Last weekend I was in this stand and a doe came up and laid down by me. It's the 5th time that has happened in this spot. She never spooked even when I was putting the tripod rail pads and camo covers on, zipping them in place. I peeled a tangerine and tossed the peel down and she still stayed calm. At one point she had her head tucked and eyes closed. Beautiful sight..... Today I was able to sneak up on a young 8 point that was bedded down in a ditch.

He and a smaller buck were beside the ditch. Then the younger one ran off.
So these and other encounters with deer and other wildlife are why I love to hunt. As I sit here now, I hear a woodpecker gently tapping the tree behind me, a wren nearby fussing, and whatever these woodland sounds are that sound like crickets. It's a great experience and I'm thankful to be here and to have a mind to comprehend how blessed I am, and a heart that allows me to embrace it.
