As a side note, one of the most beautiful furs I ever saw was a coyote hide tanned from a bullet hitting it in mid-January. Being in full fur, it was a beautiful tan, black and white fur. Of course for this sheep farmer, any coyote pelt looks good because it means there is one less coyote running around.

You have a good attitude with your stewardship of the land and the animals on it. I wish more people were like you. You KNOW there is a balance and how to achieve it. Good for you!

There were lots of deer tracks from their frolics under the full moon. Hedonistic critters!

Nobody that I know has tagged a BIG buck yet. A friend of mine got a 6 pointer on Saturday but that was it. No 200++ lb. wall hangers so far....it's early.

It never bothers me to not get a big buck...the smaller ones taste better anyways. I figure, one trophy is enough to hang on the walls if I happen to get one at some point.

You're lucky up there...VT's rifle deer season doesn't open for a couple more weeks...I'd be up in Northern ME hunting in a heartbeat this year if I had more spare cash lying about for the gas, I have some relatives and friends who let me use their hunting camps...

One of my daughter's friends tagged a 247 lb buck first thing Saturday morning.

I had a good afternoon! I had two firsts. I saw two deer during legal time. Unfortunately, they're does. Big, healthy looking does but that does me no good. The second first is seeing a deer through a scope. It was 300 yards away. It's much easier than I expected. I found her easily and watched her off and on through the scope for 20+ minutes. With knowledge and experience comes confidence. I'm a lot more confident. I'm not sure when I'm going out again.

Nope! I fell asleep in the loft and woke up after dark! That's what I get for waking up early!

Nice....too bad on the doe. I would have liked to have seen a doe today I could have taken one and wouldn't have hesitated. Good eatin'!

Won't be going out again until Saturday. I saw a good size buck bow hunting last week, but it didn't get within range. Now that my range is quite a bit further I hope to see the same one again.

I am stuck in Seattle, but the wife called me last night and had a 5x6 non typical buck eating the tomato plant leftovers in the front yard, I guess his eye guards were huge and went almost stright out.
