Ending the Year…

January 6th, 2009

I know that we are now 6 days into the new year, but I’m on vacation :). I ended the year with a quick hunt down here in Alabama. I went out early last Wednesday morning, only to be beat to death by the cold wind. After about 30 minutes, I decided I was going to head to the house. As I drove up my in-laws’ driveway, I spotted a deer in the woods off to the side. After parking, and walking down the driveway, I looked through the small wood patch into the field, and saw 3 deer standing in the field. Since they were making it so easy on me, I chose the biggest doe, and sent a 150 grain PSP through the lungs (that’s a pointed soft point, for all you who just found this post by searching for PSP stuff…). I was glad to be able to put one in my in-laws’ freezer, as they have discovered that they really enjoy venison. I always like to kill at least one deer down here, just for that reason.

There are a couple more days left to the Alabama doe season, so I may try to get out another day or two. I do like the season down here…it goes all the way to January 31st. In fact, the biggest buck I have killed in Alabama was killed on January 31st several years ago.

  1. Sounds wonderful! Congrats on the easy harvest. Sounds like they will have plenty of meat in the freezer for a good while.

  2. Man, I wish I had that easy of a hunt this year. Congrats. There’s nothing like filling a freezer, no matter who’s freezer it is.

  3. Vacation sounds like a great way to end an old year and welcome a new one – congratulations on the deer!

  4. Good luck, I hope you get a big one to end the season.
