I rarely have the opportunity to sit and observe deer. Since I hunt mostly wooded areas, the majority of the deer I see are passing quickly by me. They are either en route to some unknown destination, or someone scared them (me). It’s not very often I just get to enjoy their company for a…

“You have three more chances to bring a deer home. If you don’t shoot anything by then, you’re done.” She said. Challenge accepted.

I’m not afraid of the dark when I’m sitting in the light. I suspect most people feel the same way. But I’d be lying if I said I’ve never been afraid in the dark before. There was that time a screech owl tried to murder me…. that’s happened almost twenty times now. Then there was…

2018 Hunting Season Update #1 – I Have Determined Where the Deer Are Not 1

My deer season has gotten off to a slow start, there is no denying that. New Hampshire archery season opened on September 15th, but I was not able to hunt for the first time until the 25th and it was in an absolute downpour. It was a halfhearted attempt because of the weather, and I…
