Opening Weekend Hunting Notes:
Saturday, Sep 19: took Mrs. Patriot out for her first ever bow hunt.[:)][:)] We were together in the same blind (I left my bow at the farmhouse). We didn't see any deer, but the event was one of the best in my hunting life! I took my 8 yo son and 4 yo daughter to that same blind in the evening. No chance really of killing anything, but they enjoyed the "hunt". Between their caughing and talking, no deer were within miles. Daytime highs were over 80 degrees, so nothing was moving anyway. Mrs. Patriot took our other daughter with her. They didnn't see anything either. It was a beutiful weekend to get the kids out there.[:)]
Sunday, Sep 20: I went out for the morning hunt by myself. Got up at 3:30am and was in my blind by 4:45am. First light was 6:30am, so I caught some zzzzz's. I saw one lone doe about 7:10am. She was about 300 yards away. I never would have seen her if I hadn't been "glassing" the area constantly.
