That's insane. I too would like to experience that kind of scene that feels like straight out of a movie.

Hunting and fishing are more than the shooting or the netting. For me it is about times shared with family and friends but it also about recharging the batteries of my soul. Maybe a little sappy this morning but 100% true. When you live a busy, hectic life style there is nothing that does wonders for you than enjoying being out of buildings and pushing papers around.

Many think that being in the woods would be a boring, quiet experience. But the woods are alive if you just experience it. The crows are very loud indeed, we have owls and for lack of a proper name I call most of them tweetie birds: small thrushes and chickadees. The squirrels were crazy loud and with each frozen leaf crunch, it was the anticipation "is this the big buck coming?" The chilly morning makes one realize that everything doesn't live in a temperature controlled 72 F environment. There is more to life than just your job.

Get out into the world and experience it.

I zapped a six pointer, and so did my hunting buddy. He even got to see two bobcats. Lots of bear sign too despite the cold. Food was great, stove was warm, nearby pressure was light. Good times.

Really excited though as I drew a Michigan elk tag...a pretty much once in a lifetime draw. Antlerless tag, but I'm still tickled. Heading on that trip in about a week.

2018 was the first year I could hunt my property with a rifle (thanks NYS DEC).

My 2018 buck was shot at 160 yards with a .260 Rem Savage & Boyd's stock.

Here's the view from my ground seat (always interesting to see where others hunt). The deer was 60 yards inside the far edge of a power-line right of way.

Was really slow where I'm at in central Illinois. Not a lot of shooting going on. Shot a Doe at 10 yards on the ground sitting in a laydown. WOO Hoo Deer Heart Fajita's!
