Our gun season starts Sat.  Bow season has been open for a week or two.  I've already got a turkey(Butterball) and a ham, sometimes bag bar-b-q ribs and salt cured Kent. ham.  Like I mentioned before, we have good hunters.

We have a new one this year.  A young janitor at the school where my wife teaches.  His grandfather was raised by a family who used to own part of our place and he has asked me in the past to take him to the old house and buildings.  The buildings are in remarkable shape although you now have to walk to get to them.  I assigned him to that area although he doesn't know it.  I want to see if he finds them.  He told my wife today that he went up the hollow that is his north boundary and found where there had been an old housesite.  If he had gone another eighth mile, he would have found his grandad's old home.

We have four other hunters who have roots on or near our land.  They like to come back and live a little in the past as much as they like hunting.  I sometimes get tired of the deer stories, but I never get tired of listening to them remember back when.

Son Chris got a fawn yesterday with the bow and arrow.  I about got a big doe this morning with my 94 Buick Roadmaser.  It was just at the crest of one of the steepest little hills on that stretch of road.  She walked out of a yard right into the blacktop before I saw her.  In that split second I could see she was "going for it" and I slapped on the binders. I guess the squalling tires changed her mind and she wheeled back around.  It was close. Real close.

So far I've hit three deer hard enough to kill them.  Two did considerable damage to the car but the third I was almost to a stop when I hit it and it only left some hair on the front license plate bolts.  The little spike buck was deader'n a doorknob.  The postmortem showed it only had a couple of cracked ribs.  I've bumped a couple more that didn't look like they were hurt too bad and didn't hurt the car or truck.  Had too many close calls to count.  This time of the year I drive with one eye looking left and one looking right.  Hard to drive cross-eyed!  :o

Did an unscientific survey in the office one fall and although there were a lot of hunters,  more people killed deer with their car then the hunters took. Many were hit well within the city limits.

P.S.  They advise here in Missouri to not to try to take the ditch or go over into the oncoming lane to avoid a deer.  A lot of loss of life accidents has happened this way.  The fist deer I hit I went into the oncoming lane trying to avoid it but it turned and jumped in front of me anyway.  The second two incidents I had really no choice but to break and hope for the best as I ran smack into a heard of them.

Jeff, thought this would be of interest to you hunters up north.  I no longer  have the ability to adjust the size of a JPG I send, will correct that shortly.

This is opening day of an intensely managed hunting lease in east Texas.  High dollar set up.

A nice PA deer. We had a lot of deer up on the Allegheny NF, but it was hard to find a nice buck. Many anterless deer. That was back in the mid 70's.

Deer season has been going since the first weekend of Dec., here, they upped the number of tags landowners get from 1 to 3, two of them having to be anterless. The first weekend my two sons came up and hunted with me. Each of them got a doe and I got a nice 8 point buck. After that weekend I hunt by myself for a couple of hours before dark. I hunt in an area that had a tornado go through in 1988. I like to just sit there and look at the trees and how the forest has regenerated since then, twice I have been sitting daydreaming with my head up in the trees when I'll hear something and have a deer almost in my lap. It's comical how the deer and I will spot each other at the same instance, I got so flustered the first time I pulled the gun up and the deer took off, I shot from the hip, shot about three foot behind the deer. My son laughed when I told him and commented " so shooting from the shoulder not hard enough for you".

I was informed today at a family  Christmas dinner that the nice buck that everyone around the house was watching all summer was taken the first saturday of season it was a 10 point with a 26" spread. It was taken on my Grandmothers farm which joins our property and is less than a mile from my house. My cousin said he has pics of this deer when it was still alive and if i can get him to print it out i will post it, and i will post a few more pics of a couple more bucks that were taken on our farm later.
