Decided to get up and go out to the woods this morning. The weather was just about perfect – not too cold, not too hot, not too windy, and the wind was in the perfect direction. With the wind blowing in from the feeder, that put the stand down wind from the deer.
Around 6:30 am, 2 deer came out of the tree line, stood around for a little while and then went back into the woods.
Around 7:45 am, 3 deer came walking down the old logging road and stopped at the wildlife feeder. A few minutes later a single doe stepped out of the wood line, looked around and then went back into the trees.
Hunting is not just about killing something, its about being part of nature. In our modern world, people have forgotten what its like to be part of the natural world. People have forgotten what its like to watch the deer, listen to the birds and the wind. We have forgotten who we are and where we came from.
