Dave, I sure did, she was skinned, quartered and in the fridge by 9:00 a.m. I just finished boneing her out and grinding and vaccum sealing her up last night, now she is in the freezer, waiting for the others to get there:) Where do you hunt at, private or public? do you do any hunting down on the Kaskaskia river? I have seen and taken alot of nice deer out of there.
As I sit and glass, which is common for hunters out west, I have sort of quickly discovered something I never learned when I was younger.
In my youth I had enthusiasm and spirit. In my middle to advancing years I have creaky knees, arthritis, and I tire more easily than I used to. Where I used to sit on the cold hard ground I now look for that soft spot to sooth my tired muscles. That leads me to my tip.
Carry your soft spot with you!
In my pack I carry an air filled, ultralight, camping pad....
