Filling The Freezer

     Well, I got the "high and tight" buck last Thursday morning with my muzzleloader. He was pretty much what I thought he would be from the pictures I had gotten the week or so before. He had a three point rack on the right side that was about a foot tall and the left side was a foot long spike with a small brow point. He was a big deer and dressed out at 160 lbs. So he made a dent in filling the freezer.
     We switched over to our rifles last Saturday and the rifle season lasts until the end of the month. We've not seen many shooter bucks since the first week. I did get a pic of a nice buck at the mountain pond last week.
     Don't forget to take a second and vote for Susanne.   

We're getting dry and the pond is seeing a lot of activity.

Always carry half a dozen Bits-O-Honey in my hand warmer.

This is the stand I killed the high and tight buck from.

It's hard to see through the trees but this stand looks out over the valley.

I love watching the sunrise slowly creep across the valley in the mornings.
