Deer Season-Getting Ready
Just the other day I stepped outside and realized it has started to get colder and the leaves are starting to change. I know that deer season is coming. I have started practicing with my muzzlerloader and sighting in my Tikka .308 getting a bulls eye everytime!!!
I went with my Dad down to my Grandma’s and we hung the trail camera. We checked it later that week and knew by the pictures that we had some nice trophy bucks on the property. We also got a very funny picture of a doe eating an apple. I have numerous pictures of a doe and her two fawns.
My Dad and I have gone scouting on the property and have found several scrapes. While scouting on the 4-wheeler, we saw a lot of tracks and worn down paths. We knew that this was going to be a good place to hunt. We got on the 4 wheeler and headed back up to grandma’s house and on the way there, we saw a spike. We stopped and watched him run away.
Back at my house I have been busy washing my hunting clothes in Scent Away laundry detergent. When done, I throw them in the dryer with Scent A Way Fresh Earth dryer sheets. Mom fusses about the house smelling like dirt!! Ha, Ha
but I love the smell of fresh dirt.
Next week, I will be going with my Dad and brother to hunt the National Forest in Bedford, VA. So be sure to check back and read about my adventure in hunting whitetails in Bedford, Va.
