Tyler's first hunt - 2008
For the first time this year Steve had a chance to get into the woods. Dave has been out several times but the deer are scarce here this year and he has seen little sign. It was a hard winter. The snow was deep, the temps were very cold and the coyotes were abundant.
This was Tyler's first hunt. They hunted our own land on saturday and he was about as excited as a boy can get! They were out about three hours and Steve said he did very well. Of course, at every corner he heard a deer lol...but he contained himself and his excitement :)
Dave did shoot a nice size partridge at the end of the day. We added it to the "stash". Once we have enough of them in the freezer, we will have a partridge dinner. They are delicious. They are plentiful this year. I've had one cross in front of me in the driveway twice this week, at the same time each day. They are fat this year and she's a beauty.
