So excited finally get to go deer hunting!
The last few years have been tough. in 07 I was traveling for work, and it was the first time that I didn't get to hunt the first day of rifle in PA in my life. I did make it back for the end of the season. In 08 I would be in Philly for work, but a long way from being able to hunt. That was the first year in my life i didnt hunt in PA, however I finally had private land to hunt in NC. I managed to take a small doe on Christmas day that year. In 09 my son was born , and I had grand plans to hunt. I got to hunt one day and shot a large doe. My son was born, and needed heart surgery. Needless to say no more hunting in 09(thank god my son is healthy now)
Last year I was way to busy to hunt down here. I did make it back to PA, but didnt buy a license and sat inside for the first day with my son.
This year is different. I get to go hunting on Saturday, and talked my wife into letting me stay home for thanksgiving this year. I will be alone for thanksgiving, but will spend it and the day after chasing deer in Anson county NC. From what the landowner tells me this is the prime time down there. I can't wait.
I've also lined up some needy families for the meat, With the liberal bag limits I hope to kill a few. I'll admit I'm not to crazy about hunting over bait, but this is how the landowner does it, and he has some sweet blinds built
