I'm heading out on Saturday, November 8th, for my annual deer hunting trip with my son and I'm getting really excited.
Unlike last January, I don't think we're in any danger of a Polar Vortex swooping down from the north and dropping the temperatures into the minus digits ... that was frikin' miserable!
Plus, this year we're renting an RV camper and will park it about 2 miles from his property in Missouri, so if it gets too cold, I can walk to the camper for some heat and hot chocolate, or a beer if that's my fancy.
He's already shot 3 deer this year (2 in Kansas and 1 in Missouri) and he's saving his buck tag for when I get up there.
I think bow season here opens in large October...at least out in West Texas. Last year we went to Concan, near Garner State Park. There were so many bow hunters...everywhere we stopped to eat there were people in camo. Our friend we were visiting told us they were there for bow hunting.
Up at our place in Montgomery, I walk up to about 20 feet from deer when I walk the dogs. They just stand there and look at me looking at them. I don't bathe in anything special...just Dial soap. They love my for who I am. hahahaha
Have a wonderful trip and take your long-handles, the weather guessers are saying we are going to have some seriously cold weather to the north of here....like Missouri and Kansas. Gonna be brrrrrrr!!!!
We're camped about 15 miles outside of Chillicothe, MO and the temperature was in the upper 60's this afternoon, but it's falling fast right now. It's forecast to be 30 degrees in the morning when we head out to the Deer stand. Brrrrrrr!!!
The good news is my son got a nice 8 point buck 10 minutes into the day this morning.
Brace yourself Kingwood, this weather is heading your way!
We've still got 4 more days of hunting to do unless it becomes unbearable.
