Any deer hunters in the house? Yeah, that's D.E.E.R. hunters, not D.E.A.R. hunters. Today the season opened. Yesteday I was out of town about six hours away trying my best to get back to get out there this morning with my boys. I had a long day, got tied up and didn't get to leave until almost 11p.m. I drove through the night pumping mug after mug of coffee trying to make it back in time. At last, it got so sleepy I couldn't see straight so I had to pull over at a convinience store to keep from killing myself. It was a very disappointing scene when I woke up later and scene all of the hunters pulling in and out of the store with their sons and a few daughters dressed in their hunting attire, 4 wheelers on their trucks, tree stand in the back, heading to the woods. I'm missing the window of opportunity and I have another hour to drive. I called my son and told him he would have to head out without me and that my younger sons would have to stay home because I didn't think it is safe for them to go out with him. When I got home, I was too tired to think about holding a rifle in a tree stand. So, I got a couple of hours of sleep and I am G2G now and ready to catch that window this afternoon. My other son is still out "Grocery shopping" I hope he gets one. We love that venison. Some folks hunt for the sport of it, we call it Grocery hunting or Grocery shopping if there is a lot of deer out. We out there for food. We make deer jerky, deer sausage, steaks, stew meat, tender loin, and we mix some with pork fat or with ground beef and grind it.
