Deer Hunting Weekend

Last Saturday was the opening day of deer season here in Missouri. We were happy to have 5 extra "hunters" stay with us on the Friday night before opening morning. Food is always plentiful and stories are flying!! :-) Saturday dawned very early (for them :), warmer than normal, and extremely windy.

By 8:30, Anthony was back with his kill of the day.

The lone successful hunter of the day.
Sunday night at church a huge 10 point buck was found behind the parsonage. Some hunter, no doubt, shot it and it ran a ways before going down. Mark and a couple of guys loaded it up in the back of a truck so that it could be dumped. Someone would have really had some good bragging rights!!!

Sounds like something my boys would love to do right now! I'm not sure at what age this hunting stuff is going to begin for them, but they're ready! We have loads of deer on our church property, and they are always out trying to "catch" one. It's cute!
