Not much of a rack, but a nice spike. The joy of it was that it was my grandson’s first deer. He is 14. We were sitting side by side in a blind at the edge of a field near Hancock, Maryland. It was about 28° with no wind and about 7:00 am this buck and a doe came by. They disappeared but about an hour later the buck came out about 70 yards away. He has a Remington model 700 .243 with 100 grains and a 3x9 scope. The Saturday before he had missed a small six. I was whispering to him like one of those guides you see on the outdoor channel on tv. He said, “I think I’ll take a shot.” We have those shooting sticks to help steady the rifle. With one shot he dropped it with a spine shot.
I have shot a pile of deer in my years. But this was one of my happiest moments in all the years I have hunted deer. That would be 55.

So for the 4th time in the 25 years we've lived here, a grouse flew into the South side of the house and broke his neck yesterday. It was also the 4th dinner of delicious grouse. I dressed out the breasts, cut them into strips, rolled 'em in flour egg and panko crumbs and fried them crispy. Not quite road kill but close~

Whip was pissed that I went hunting without him!

Remember when there were actually men around here and we got some dead animals?

Up here in Washington we got deer, grouse, rabbit and doves opening tomorrow. When does everybody else get started? When is the first day that you're heading out?

I'll be sitting in my stand Friday after work for deer and then taking the dog out Sat to chase some grouse, then back in the stand on Sunday.
Our gun deer hunting season starts on Nov. 21st.
