The Deerslayer at Work
This Saturday was opening day for deer season. So, even though my 13 year old son took a doe during bow season, he also took a buck during rifle season. Here he is with the buck and totally in his element. He loves hunting, nature, and old ways.
He researches YouTube for flint napping, arrow making, and crossbow plans. He has countless projects going on in our garage at any given time. He is an outdoors man for sure.
He has been influenced, just a tad, by this group of ragtag guys. In this photo you would never guess that there are two doctors, one air marshal, one Navy SEAL, several state troopers, one Secret Agent Man, and one Smalltownland insurance agent. An odd group for sure, but still a great mix of ages and experience.
Ummm.....so yeah, this means that I had to take out all of the ice cream tubs in the deep freeze to make room for one deer head. Gee....never thought I would be saying that. Glad that thing is going to the taxidermist Monday morning.
