Deer Season Is Over

Deer season has come to a close in our part of North Carolina. We ended the season with a couple of snow hunts! One a few weeks back in Watagua County and the other this past weekend at home. We got a really nice winter storm on Dec. 18th that left about 7-8" of snow. We found quite a few tracks in the snow both trips and saw a few does, but we didn't come away with any more deer. It was a great season though! Alan got his two bucks and I got my doe. All killed in 18th century fashion with no bait or tree stands!

I would like to try to get a few squirrels and maybe a few rabbits over the winter to tide us over to spring when we'll be after turkeys! I think taking a spring gobbler in period attire would about the ultimate and I hope to get one this spring. I will post a few pictures from the snow hunt.
