All well around here. It always gets slow about this time of year but picks back up shortly. Not much happening on the hunting scene around here. I am taking the kiddos on a bunny hunt this weekend so we'll see how that goes. It usually ends like a range session for the kids. They love shooting the 22 mag. at the various plastic bottles I always happen to have in the back pack. We may go to the gun club this weekend as well and let them empty a few mags in the handguns.
The local DNR was out saving this nice buck from certain death. Seeing as the water was to deep for the deer to touch bottom, and he couldn't get back up on the ice.
The deer survived to be seen at someones feeder later in the winter.
Over the years I have seen several elk and deer hides left in the woods by hunters and I have to wonder why they do this? I fully understand and agree about getting the hide off the animal as soon as possible to cool the meat, but why not pack out the hide with you and use it? As far as I know there are no state laws that require you to take the hide home, but to me why waste such a beautiful part of the animal? Some might think they have no use for the hide or it costs too much to tan....
