Nov 16, 2012

This is a big week for me and it has nothing to do with fishing. Thursday was the opener of our deer firearms season and the bucks are chasing does. Although it’s the gun season, you can still hunt with a bow, something I really love. I went with my sons a few times during the early archery season. We saw some deer but didn’t take a shot. We’re not seeing the deer we saw a few years ago. Our numbers are down here in southern Michigan due to the EHD virus that has hit us the past couple of years.
