Perspective

Written on November 19, 2019 at 9:37 am, by

As I have written many times before, when one is in a tree stand, he notices the most intricate things. For hours on end a deer hunter is looking at the same view. He can only see so far in each direction. It never changes. So, within his parameters he must learn to look beyond […]

Quiet Moments

Written on November 11, 2019 at 9:13 am, by

I’ve often noticed how deer live mostly in a quiet environment. Even this morning I watched one particular city dwelling doe begin to get a bit nervous when the noise of traffic began to surround her. She quickly moved to a quieter place. Not only do they prefer a soundless surrounding, but most of the […]

Leaning

Written on November 5, 2019 at 9:56 am, by

I’m back at home after an extended time away hunting and preparing for some outdoor events. I had better not plan on staying around too long; if I get too comfy I’ll miss a bunch of bucks on the move. The weather has been very inconsistent. I have hunted on days where the temperatures have […]

Today

Written on October 29, 2019 at 10:31 am, by

One of my favorite creations in our world is that thing we call a “day.” You know, that 24 hours that comes to an end only to begin another 24 hours. Now I know it doesn’t take much to intrigue me, but this has always been something that I have given thought to. And if […]

Possibility for the Prize

I love hunting the Midwest. I’ve been going there for several years and look forward to it each year at this time. Not only do I get to see some friends that I have come to know, but I get to chase some really big bucks. Sometimes, (if not most of the time) I get […]

Thoughts and Prayers

I wrote about the lack of rain a few weeks ago. My little food plot needed a drink so bad. It still does, but the drought continues. And it’s probably too late now, anyways. Something growing in the middle of October seems unlikely. I did all that I could do. I needed God to send […]

Clarity

I started the morning sitting in a tree stand. A few weeks ago, I had trimmed limbs and opened up some shooting lanes for this new stand placement. I think it is going to be a good one. The cool morning was expected as well as the lingering fog that hovers over the hills, sometimes […]

Good Stewards

The woods are wilting. I’m not exactly sure when it last rained in my area, but I know it’s been over three weeks. That was when I planted my food plot. I also know it had been several days before that since we had any significant rainfall. It’s not only dry, but the leaves are […]

Aged

Written on September 24, 2019 at 10:49 am, by

My hunting vehicle is a 1995 Nissan Pathfinder. For the past three or four years I have been thinking how that anytime, it is going to bite the dust. I am the second owner. Its first owner totaled it in a wreck years ago and I bought it from the insurance company. It was salvageable […]

Seen a thing or two

Written on September 17, 2019 at 10:10 am, by

When I look back over my years of deer hunting, I see how much I have changed. I can remember the first time I arrowed a doe. It was also the first time I followed a blood trail, and the first time I ever field dressed a deer. That one day actually held a lot […]
