November is here and with it comes Deer Hunting! Our hunting party is made up of 8 hunters this year (My Dad, sister Melanie, brother Matt, Uncle Albert, cousin Audra, cousin-in-law Justin, hubby Ben and I)! So far we've harvested a total of four deer (plus Matt & Ben's four deer from an earlier season).
My family has a tradition of starting our deer season with a very early morning lip-smackin' sizzlin' breakfast cooked up by my Dad. After breakfast we discuss who should stand in what deer stand and so on. After getting our gear and blaze orange on, we head out into the morning darkness to find our designated spot. After climbing into our stand and getting comfortable, we wait...our eyes stealthily scanning the trees for any sign of brown that could be a deer; our ears attentive to every snap, crackle and pop of the forest.
