My 11 year who has been participating in the mentored youth program didn't feel like going out today. Working a ton of hours, I figured I would go out in the afternoon and give it a try in 5C. Fortunately for me a group from Lancaster was pushing the SGL hard. I walked up on one of the hunters as he was gutting two doe. After giving him the thumbs up, I told him it's now my turn. I walked no more than 50 yards from him when three deer walked out and stopped broadside in front of me.
Talk about being at the right place at the right time. I hunted all of 45 minutes and harvested a nice doe. Needless to say, it was a lesson for my 11 year old to never give up as your season could change in a heartbeat.
Being new to the area is there a good deer processor in the Schnecksville / surrounding area? I am looking at getting the deer ground up for chili and meatloaf.
