|Here they are before loading it into the truck.|
Connecticut held a second youth day last Saturday. I really wanted to go with them but work put a stop to me having a good time, which is often the case. Around 4:10pm i got a call from my mom. She said Loly shot another deer! A quick call to Savage Ed confirmed the fact. He said "I can't talk now i am dragging my daughter's deer out"! From the pics it looks to be a mature doe. I guess the party is at their house!
I can remember when i shot my first deer. It was snowing and about 3 in the afternoon. The snow lifted and the spike horn appeared like a ghost 30 yards from me. I shot it and to my displeasure the deer ran off. I could see blood and hair all over the snow so i had to track Then the snow started to fall again and i had no blood trail to follow. When i did find the deer, with the help of the land owner's lab, it had 2 inches of snow on it. I even recovered the 165gr. slug. I can only imagine that Loly had those same feeling of happiness. She was able to spend another day in the woods with her dad and shoot another deer. Next she wants to try duck hunting and ice fishing!
As for me i am getting the boat squared away for water fowl. I have been doing a lot of scouting and it is not looking so good. Only a few resident mallards are flying around. I have not seen any buffle heads or mergs. The only positive note is the Old Squaw, which are around. I am pumped to get out Saturday with my brother and gun down some sea ducks.
