Gas Pains

Tom grew up in Milwaukee, bartended in Wauwatosa in the '70s and moved here in 1984.

Commentary, observations and musings about the outdoors, life in general and maybe Tosa politics and personalities will be the order of the day. He savors a lively debate as much as terrific cooking.

Deer Camp 2007 - Final Post

Gas Pains, Hunt'n, Outdoors, Personal

Hunting has been slow. 

On Friday my wife and I decided that the only deer I should shoot would be a doe for the food pantry or a trophy for the wall.

I have seen neither.  Only yearling bucks - mostly immediately before sundown.

While the temps were a bit more tolerable today the wind was howling with gusts up to 26 MPH 

I decided to hide from the wind as best as I could in a bow stand nestled in a swampy stretch of creek bed

There has been beaucoup sign of deer continuing to move along the natural cover and corridor following the creek.

This part of the trail looks like a regular deer and turkey expressway.


In case you haven't noticed we've had a full moon and clear and cold evening skies.

The trail camera confirmed that there are plenty of deer - moving after hours.

Who can blame them.  They've been chased, pushed, shot at and general persecuted for eight days.


That's it for now.

There's a late season antlerless gun hunt in December and the bow season goes thru the end of the year.

Smile for the trail cam...
