We were there until 230am, needless to say I did not get up early to go hunting. I did not get into the blind until 1100am on Saturday. What a great day to be in God's country. The sun was shining, there was no wind it was just a great day. The only thing that would have made it better would have been seeing a deer. Nothing moving all day long. After shooting hours had ended, I saw three doe's. One gave me a great profile, would have been a great shot. Only one problem I don't have a doe permit, they were sold out. There are signs all over this hill, including a couple of beds but during the day no deer are moving.
One of two deer beds near my blind.
The hunting day ended with a really nice sunset.
Denise had dinner ready for me, Turkey Shepard's Pie. It was very good and topped off a great day in the great outdoors. Later we went up to the Elbow Lake Bar to have a drink. The Elbow is also a log cabin built around the same time ours was built. They have really good food and the folks that own and work there are the best. 'Everybody knows your name'
Early Sunday, I was back in the blind. Nothing moving and did not see anything. At noon I packed up and headed back to the cabin. We got everyting ready and headed for home. All in all, a great weekend.
Since this hunting thing does not seem to be working, I do have ice fishing to look forward to. Our lake is frozen over, but it is not safe to walk on yet.
We hope that you all had a great Thanksgiving!!
