Most of our camp members made it to camp for this weekend arriving on Thursday 9/26.
They spent the first couple days just relaxing and hanging out. They did a little fun work like putting up some posted signs, laying out some grass seed on our freshly bull dozed haul roads, and mowing grass. All along with thinking and talking about deer.
I spent this weekend at home involved with football and soccer.
Saturday morning was Parents Day so here I am with son and wife being introduced at the football game. Mommy got a flower as she walked across the field.
My son is #60 his favorite number. This year is his first year playing as a Kindergarten kid in a K-2 league. He starts as offensive tackle and defensive end beating out first and second graders for the spots. Not bad for being the youngest on the team. Me, I'm one of the coaches and one proud Daddy.
Meanwhile Saturday when I'm playing football....the guys are killing deer.
Here's Mike and his Saturday morning doe. Mike also saw two shooter bucks running together. The one he had his eyes on trying to shoot was a wide 14 pointer, with no height. Too much brush to take the shot.
When I make it down there in a couple weeks I'll have to pull my card to see what we might have. Its on a 6 week soak.
He wants me to take him early muzzleloader hunting following football season so that should be my first time out this year. Odds are good we can lay down a nice red blood trail through the nice lush green food plot.
