    First time in 55 years that I have been unable to go hunting. Congratulations to all who scored this year and condolences to those who were not so fortunate.

    Try cooking the whole ham of a very young deer. It's tender and very much like roast lamb. Delicious.

    Some nice deer you all have taken!
    And good luck on your trip Woodnut. I've been a bit under the weather this gun season here with flu-like feelings. I did manage to get out the second day here all day and had a neighbor miss a small 9pt..
    It came down past me and with two shots, I managed to drop it with my S&W 586, .357 Mag.. When he came down (my neighbor) I had the deer down and he told me he'd missed it and really needed the meat. So, I told him to go get his 4 wheeler and I'd help him load the buck up and that we did.
    As I'm feeling a bit better, I'm going to try and hit it hard with the 3 days of season we have left...stll with the revolver.

    I was talking with a lady from our church last night and she says that she is over-run with does and has invited me over to thin the herd. Says I can sit on her front porch and take care of it. All she wants is some venison out of it. I told her no problem and thanked her.

    We killed off most of the does in the northern half of Pa years ago. Now seeing a deer in the woods is a rare thing. Gary Alt and his gang, that screwed up our deer hunting has moved to Wisconsin and is screwing up their deer herd. Any farmer will tell you...Killl off the cows, and soon there is no herd!

    Well I was out but my wife came over and told me that they went over to the south of the road headed west. Oh well maybe this after noon I'll set in a different spot. The whole sittin thing escapes me I've always walked.

    Didn't go during the center-fire portion, had intended on going out with my shooting buddy to his "special place" but he was in a motorcycle accident last Sunday and won't be walking anywhere for quite some time, severed the tendons completely just above the knee on his right leg...wife and I are taking him and his wife some homemade chicken and dumplings tomorrow and just visit...

    Took another big doe yesterday.I was sitting on some rubs all day but did not see a rack and at 4:30 with the light almost gone she waked up and was ready to bust me(hunting on the ground)so instead of herring the snort and seeing the flag which would end the day that late anyway I added her to the freezer.
