How The Hunting Begun
One Year Later
That was a year ago and I am in the same tree with the same camouflage head piece on and the same crossbow for hunting. I am looking for deer but my eyes are also on the squirrels that are parading all around me. Maybe all this distraction to my main purpose is the reason that the very large doe about 40 yards out to my right has seen me before I saw her. I am sure that my movement has alerted her to the large blog on top of what used to be a perch for the squirrel that lives in the walnut tree. She looks at me and I stare at her for several moments and then she does an about face and walks back down the trail she came from. Boy all that coffee had done a number on my bladder and another cup of coffee is only a few miles away. It was a great morning to be alive and it’s early in the season so off of the perch I go and back to the coffee pot I come.
