Our internet connection has been down for a couple days, so update will be sporadic for a while. I was fortunate enough to get an 8-point buck this year, with an assist from Dave Wittner. Not a trophy like last year, but still very nice. I wounded my deer (first time ever I had to track one!) and was trailing it when Dave finished it off.
Later, in a fitting twist, Tom finished off a deer that Dave had wounded. What goes around comes around, as they say. Kevin had a chance at a small 6-pointer, but passed it up to let it grow. I'm very proud of him for doing that - he saw very few deer this weekend, and it takes a lot of discipline to pass up an easy shot at a buck in order to build a trophy for the future!
Next Spring, Dave is going to bring some of his machinery and help me build a food plot for the deer, which should help the numbers of deer as well as building bigger racks. Can't wait for the '08 hunting season!
Pictures and more detail will follow as our junky internet service allow.
