Deer Season, November 5, 2011

The rifle portion of deer season opens tomorrow, the corn and protein feeders, twice a day, are cranking out their nourishment to the deer, coons, rabbits and birds. Thanks to the rains of the past month, forbs and wild grasses are sprouting adding to the deer’s diets. Despite the drought of the past year, we may salvage something out after all.

That’s the good news, the bad news is tonight is Goldthwaite’s last District football game. The game will be played in Eldorado, a 2-1/2 hour drive west of us and Layla and I, along with Mickey and Doris Donahoo, will be driving out to the game, in fact, we’ll be leaving at 3:15 PM. The rest of the bad news is we have to get up at 5:30 AM to go out and chase the deer. Mickey is bringing one of the football boys out for a hunt and he’ll be the only one, probably, getting up that early!

Anyway, we’ll all be out seeing if we can bag one.
