Lonesome Doe, MS> The absolute worst opening weekend in the history of the famous Christmas Place.
Doom, Despair, and Agony on Me-
Deep Dark Depression Excessive Misery-
If it weren't for Bad Luck, I'd Have No Luck at All-
Doom, Despair and Agony on Me!
No bucks were taken this weekend and no big bucks were seen. Austin took a crack at a buck Friday afternoon that he wounded and it escaped. This set the mood for the rest of the weekend. Nothing! Paul Howell (aka- Mr. Boone) was terribly upset that he hadn't killed a giant buck by 7:00 AM Saturday morning and was grouchy and mean the rest of the weekend as he staggered from field to field trying to pop a cap in a giant deer. Trent Howell (aka- Mr. Crockett) had more self restraint and held his temper till 7:14 AM at which time he went ballistic because he hadn't killed a trophy buck. Here is a picture of him totally dejected.You know that neither of these geniuses ever get to hunt. To top it off, the Rebels lost in overtime to that damned LSU in one of their best played games in the last five years. Crap!! The only saving grace for the whole weekend is that Drew Stewart became buck eligible by taking a nice doe off of the Cheeseburger Stand. He saved the whole weekend from being a total disaster! The Stewarts are now at the top of the food chain! We had some good hunts and saw a lot of deer but old big boy just did not cooperate. I guess I will just have to do something sneaky!
