My New Little Hunter…

December 4th, 2007

I am happy to announce the birth of my third child, a true little hunter!  He was born on November 21st, yes right in the middle of West Virginia’s rifle season.  JonDavid Hunter weighed in at 8 lbs, 1/4 oz.  and measured 21 inches long.  Just to show you what he is in for, here is a picture of him in his coming home outfit:

 Lest any one worry, my wife made the adorable outfit that JonDavid is wearing.  Jacob also came home from the hospital in camo.  I gave in on my daughter, and let here wear a frilly dress.  However, the boys have to be tough, and prepared for the coming hunting seasons!  We couldn’t help but use the name “Hunter” since he was born during hunting season.

I have managed to get out into the woods a bit, around the birth of my son.  Since it didn’t appear that he was going to make an appearance on Monday of season, I decided to take a chance and travel to a friend’s farm about an hour and a half away.  I was fortunate enough to bag a nice little four point buck early in the morning.  A friend of mine accompanied me, and was able to get his first deer, a little button buck.  Here a few pics from the day:

 I also was able to get out last Friday and fill my doe tag.  That gets 3 nice deer into the freezer, and should keep us through the winter.  I am hoping to be able to get out for a couple of days next week for our muzzleloader season.  I am hoping to bag at least one more doe, and maybe get a chance at a late season buck.

Over all, it has been a great season so far!  We have truly been blessed.

  1. Congrats on your newborn son. Love the outfit that he came home in and his name. My second great-grandson was born on Nov.4th and he came home in a camo jumpsuit that I got him. Gotta love it! Also, congrats on your deer harvest. Looks like you are set for the year! Happy New Year to you and yours!
