My second season started after my wife. She was able to go down before me with her dad. While she was there on her last night she tagged out. So not only did she tag out before me she also got a deer before me. She got a nice doe too. My first year I didn’t get to tag out despite seeing deer and releasing some arrows.
Deer season is finally here and I am writing this post from the trailer on our family friend’s property in Western Washington, about 3 hours from our own home. Opening day was just this past Sunday and I was lucky enough to be up here, sans Wildchild with both my parents. I couldn’t have asked for a better day, which is funny because I wanted to just head home already.
Most of you know that I went turkey hunting during Easter weekend. I had a great time hanging out with my friend. Too bad, my friend had his work hours change on him last minute so we did not hang out that much, more of just hunting together, which was fine.
It’s that time of year again, Turkey season! Time to get out in the field and hunt for some birds. Before we can get out hunting though, we have some things to take care of first. We gotta get all of our gear packed, and pack food. Most importantly, we have to stick to the budget!
It’s true, summer is a long way off. However, this recent little amount of cold and snow we got has me dreaming of warmer days. It also has me in planning mode on what to do with these wild children we will have.
Soon spring will be here and you know what that means. No more snow, longer days, flowers start blooming and birds flying around. Speaking of birds, spring Turkey hunting season is coming up soon.
Western Washington got hit with an insane amount of snow over the past week. In fact, I think we broke a record and last time we got this much snow was back in 1945. We had about 7 inches on Monday, the 4th. It warmed up just a tad over the next couple of days, leaving us with about 4 inches when the second storm hit.
At the beginning of this year I made the decision to go out hunting. I thought that it would be a good experience and another way to get out in the woods, besides camping.
