Hunting Into 2008
Hells-Fiery-Depths, MS> First it started out awful, but I admit it got better quickly. When I got to the camp Thursday afternoon, I noticed something hanging on the pole. At first I thought it was a squirrel with antlers, but upon closer examination it was a young 8-point buck taken by Drew Stewart. This got everyone in
the woods quickly and just at dark a lone gunshot rang out of the Hole area. Oh hell, I thought and soon Paul came in with a damn 14-point. Another one?
A 14 point in a season is a rarity, but two in a camp in the same year?
Congratulations to the famous deer murderer, anyway. At least, he limited out and was through for the year. Maybe not. Marian and Bob were there and hunted hard for a couple of days with no deer.
Paul wandered out in the woods and blasted a doe for our management program and then told Marian to quit hunting with me if she wanted to kill a deer. She took his advice and BLAM! Marian got a deer at Eastgate.
And me, what did I do this weekend? Take a look. Pretty pitiful.
