I am sure you are all wondering about my hunting habits. This blog is to enlighten you. =)
Carefully placed footsteps echoing thunderously on crunching leaves.
Sharp eyes scanning for the elusive doe...
Until they glaze over as my brain starts to think about a picture I should take for my blog and how should I write...
I had a wonderful day last weekend. You can all admire me in the picture... if you can see me =) I'm below the orange hat.
I spotted a deer from 200m down a pipeline and proceeded to creep along the edge of the forest quieter than the dozen voles I spotted. After about 100m I could no longer see the deer and thought they had run off... buy my pal Rich was still sitting where I left him... so I kept going. Finally I stood up to take a better peak and stepped on the loudest twig of the day. Up popped a head 20 meters away... Rich could see me and the deer in his binoculars at the same time. WOW!!! Anyways... I hesitated... I've never taked a head shot... needless to say I startled it and two others... =(
My heart racing from the excitement I turned back to meet up with Rich. I had a good time.
I did shoot an 18 month old deer and had some wonderful garlic sausage made up at Victoria Meats - they don't use MSG!!!
