Thought is was a doe

Unread postby exojam » Sat Oct 26, 2019 4:26 am

Had this guy walk right past me as I was tucked into fall down on my track chair.

I thought it was a big doe until I got over to it. Not my target size but any deer from the ground in my track chair is very nice.

Awesome.

I’m glad to see that you are still at it and getting it done. Good eats for sure.

Thank you gentlemen!

Yeah, the past few years have been a true nightmare, a test of my desire to live, a very strong test of my faith and just flat out not fun. When you can instruct nurses on the correct way to do things and you are assigned a “complex care team”, you have been in the hospital way to much. But such is life, you deal with what comes your, sometimes you can make it, other times you cannot.

I think in the past two years I was able to get out maybe three times if that (my memory has gone the way of the doo doo bird)! Heck, I am not even sure I got that birds name correct:)

Hopefully I see a bruiser at next weeks para hunt since I picked up a Savage 220 slug gun since I tired of muzzle loaders.
