Was not sure if I was going to hunt this year but good weather and a short walk brought it all together

Well I was sitting in this stand seen in the picture here. The deer in the picture was the second one that can in just after my shot on the 4pt. It came in from the right just up to 15 yards and was just starting to wind me when I released the arrow. He ran a couple yards and started walking then a slow run into some brush. I left him for 2 hours and then retreived him with some help from my good neighbor.

That'll teach that deer to get between you and the ground!

How much of your missing garden produce do you expect you are getting second hand in the meat?  Post this pic next to your garden next spring as a way of discouraging their thieving ways.

Many happy meals, congratulations John.

I think JW I was having a lot of heart trouble over the past few years. When ever a deer would come in my heart would just run super irregular and would get me kinda jumpy. This time with the heart repaired things were smooth and different. Kinda hard to explain.

  Also dont feel dizzy in the stand anymore. When a deer would walk in my heart kinda went nuts and I would not get good oxygen and was getting dizzy. Lucky I didnt faint in the stand like I did a coulpe times on the ground.

Glad the ticker is keeping more regular John.

Good weather ad a short walk may have put it all together, but it looks like a good shot finished it off.

What with getting your carburetor re-tuned and all, I am just plum happy to see you doing what you love, whether it is beekeeping, gardening, throwing pots, hunting deer, or futzing with RC stuff.  All my love to you and the Mrs (you know, the one that can actually bring home a decent set of antlers).

I have been working hard all summer to get the woodfire kiln built. I am just about done with iron still needed on the chimney and fire doors attached.
