December 4th... can anyone guess what will be happening then? I will be getting up early and standing in the freezing cold weather in hopes of seeing and shooting my first deer. I don't have very high expectations, but my husband does. We started target shooting Sunday afternoon. We got the guns all sighted in and had a few challenge rounds against each other. Let me tell you the one other time I went deer hunting in the last 5 years of marriage.
I went out early on a Saturday morning thinking "This will be fun! Something I can do with Jake that he enjoys and is interested in." It was a chilled 17 degrees. I lasted 20 minutes and after not seeing ANYTHING I headed back to the truck to sleep. Well, Jake never did see any deer but he said shortly after I left post, there was a bobcat about 20 yards from us. If I would have endured and not chickened out I could have had a stuffed bob cat in living room- hahaha- not!
I have a renewed zeal about deer hunting this year after one of them totaled my car. So here goes!
Sighting in the guns.
Our competition. I shot the right 2 red dots and he shot the left 2. Not too bad. Every single one of them would get me some jerky in my freezer, right?
