'Tis been awhile.
Hunted opening weekend with Dad, Don & Doug at the shack. Good times, no deer.
A few days of work, then hunted Thanksgiving (Dad got an eight-pointer on that Wednesday).
Watched the Packers game on Mom & Dad's new 42" HDTV.
Hunted Saturday & Sunday.
Returned to the truck to head home Sunday afternoon. First one back. As I waited for the close of the season, and Dad & Doug to return, a deer appeared. I bagged it. A moderate-sized nubbin' buck. Venison.
Phil & I and our sons and dogs went into the woods today, to get a load of firewood before the expected foot of snow falls.
Kayla and Jamie are making Christmas cookies as we decorate the Christmas tree. (Our Plum Creek permit is for harvested tree tops and wind-downs. The lumbermen had knocked over a lot of spruce and balsam this fall. I found a nice spruce, checked to see that the needles held, and sure enough, another way to procure a Christmas tree.)
