Unfortunately, none of the above occurred except for the harvest of my second and final buck for this season. The video that can be viewed below covers everything that happened that morning, from the 23 minutes I spent in the grounds to the struggle it took to get my second buck extracted from the woods. I do hope you enjoy it, even though I don't blame you if you prove it too excruciating to watch and just fast-forward to the five minute mark where the footage of my buck begins.
Since I have your attention, I'd like to end this post by wishing you and yours a very safe, happy, blessed and delicious Thanksgiving day. For the first time in three years, it looks like DU and I are going to be opting out of hunting Thanksgiving morning. We will be dinning with family and while we have time to hunt, as my extremely lofty (if you think my expectations are outlandish for videos, they are nothing compared to the insanity that surrounds my plans for cooking a large table of food, a feat which I have yet to even think about let alone execute) plans for cooking Thanksgiving dinner were extinguished when we were invited to DU's aunt and uncle's homestead, we have no need (let alone freezer room) for more deer meat. Hence, we will have the luxury of sleeping in, eating tons and spending the day with loved ones.
Happy Thanksgiving to each of you!
I am so thankful for every one of you who visit this blog with any semblance of regularity.
HLYH and The Writing Huntress exist simply because of your support, a fact that humbles me daily. May God bless your family, filling your bellies with good food and hearts with the joy of the season!
