And We’re Off! Whitetail Season Is Open.

September 30, 2013

The whitetail season is now officially underway here in the Hill Country.  I could tell by the flood of pickup trucks, beds and trailers loaded with pallets of feed corn, 4-wheelers, UTVs, and various designs of shooting houses and elevated stands.

I actually spent opening morning with my friend Levi, trying to get him on an axis for his freezer.  Saturday afternoon brought torrential rains, and when they ended I finished the day by putting a roof over my new back porch.  Sunday, however, was spent in my tree stand.  And in keeping with the recent trend of super-short posts, I could end this one by saying no deer were harmed in the making of my weekend.

I did pass up a couple of deer on Sunday morning, including a very tempting cow horn (8″-9″ spike) at 12 yards.  I can tell it’s going to be tough not to shoot small bucks this season, as they seem to be everywhere.  I also let a yearling doe walk, but that one wasn’t a difficult decision.  I’ve got plenty of time, and there are plenty of deer.

Stay tuned…
