This is the shot from my deerstand..... this is where I spent all day today :)

Just wanted to share with everyone that our hunting club donated a total of 25 doe deer to our Local Food Bank.... I am so proud to be a part of such a wonderful cause.

And for those of you that have been following me on my hunting adventures.... I took a beautiful 9-point buck yesterday evening, with a total score on his antlers of 148 2/8 inches. As a hunter, I'm pretty proud to take such a mature animal..... and yes, I kept this one, I needed meat for my freezer!!!

Thanks to Oregon Curly for this challenge.. same shot, same spot, every Saturday for a year.... I'll go back to my "regular" backyard next week!

    Congratulations, Maurie, on your success! The last time I hunted from a stand, the sun came up and there were two jokers 25 feet away from me telling jokes, smoking pipes, and drinking coffee. How many deer do you think came our way that day? I was at a hog killin' this morning and early afternoon. Great weather for same. 26 degrees and no wind.

    Maurie that is great!! I bet you were HUMMING all the way to the food bank. It' so nice that you are not ROBIN people from having food on their table. Congrats on the 9-point! I bet you were as proud as a PEACOCK. Sorry but I'm feeling a little LOONy!! I better go. I'm sure with this I'll be HERON more than enough from Susan!

    That is SO great Maurie! And I'm certainly not going to PARROT what Mike said; I'm just happy you were able to KILDEER, and get meat for your freezer. I'm CRANEing my neck to see if I can see Mike--he's been a real ALBATROSS around my neck lately, and when I find him, he'd better DUCK!! And Dick...don't you just love how he tried to HOG the spotlight with his story?!?!? Men!

    What a great looking spot to spend a day. Congrats on the nice buck as well and for all the meat to the food bank, excellent, most excellent. I QUAIL to think of how long this LARK of bird listing will continue. You have some STARLING phrases, and this old COOT can't top 'em.

    ROFL!!! ..but some of the funniest comments I've seen on any post in a long while do not dimish what a great shot and story you have here, Maurie!! Congratulations on your successes... and it's so nice to hear about the food bank donation!! Can we expect to see some venison meal close-ups soon??

    You should be very proud of your significant contribution to the food bank. I am sure many children will thank you with their mouths full. Congrats on your amazing buck. What a nice reward for you after all your hours on the deerstand. This is a lovely place to spend your time. Nice capture, Maurie.
