Deer Hunting 2010

While I didn't get a deer this past year I did get to actually go hunting. Not as much as I would have liked to, but I did get out. I even saw a deer, just one doe, but I did see her and also sign there's a buck in the neighborhood. Buck and doe and we might have a herd again next fall. As it was, those 2-3 deer were all over the yard and through the lower pasture.

You see, it has been estimated that we lost 35-40% of the deer herd last winter (2009-2010) due to poor mast, cold weather and deep and long lasting snows (for this area). We hope they'll recover and we'll get some next year.
