Had a good day with the grand kids yesterday, also early got my doe hide in the rack, it's almost 6 feet long so should make a good bit of brain tan, got to close the pool today :(  and hopefully get to the cabin later this evening to rack the other hide , work up some meat and then get back to hunting. ;) The weather is beautiful here although still very dry.  ???

Great weekend, got a lot done at the cabin and also some hunting in, seems this is the time of year to gather supplies and stayed pretty busy at that all weekend. few pictures. My fleshing pole and dull draw knife, works great on the deer hides. Got 2 hides all fleshed out and ready to rack up.  :)

Had a buddy drop by with 3 bags of turkey feathers and found a shed while out tracking a deer for a friend. Like I said gathering supplies. ;) :) :) Also got the 2 doe all worked up and packaged , got enough burger for our brat making this winter and lots of steak and roast for the winter. It's a start. ;)

Got both hides racked up and looking very good, mine only had 1 hole and the other 2 but can sew them up when I brain tan them. Then Saturday morning I got another nice doe, 10 yard shot, not the best shot I have ever made but lets just say thir was no tracking involved and that's a good thing.  :)

I thought maybe you were in a pit blind with that shot.  (lol)  You are racking them up this year, Pappy, both the deer and their hides.   :OK

Ya Pat it wasn't pleasant but sometime we have to do what we have to do.  :) Now to cut it up and get in into the freezer. It is supposed to be warm/windy and still very dry all week so probably won't hunt till Thursday or Friday. Got the Baggett reunion this coming Sunday so got several things to do around the cabin to be ready for all my kin folks to enjoy. Yall have a good week. :)

Congratulations Pappy.  Debbie got a doe fawn this evening at our place.  It was by itself and she has trouble telling a big one from a little one.  She was down on herself when we got to it.  A well placed shot and it didn't go 80 yards.  I was
proud of her.  Tender meat but not much of it.  Looking forward to getting down there in about a month.

I know thatís not pleasant Pappy, but I certainly can think of worse outcomes. You did what you had to do and thatís hunting.

Hope you and your kin folk have a very nice get together.
