This week a 76 year old client was sent to hospital by a buck. He attacked her in her own backyard. She was feeding him and others, not sure why he attacked but hurt her bad. Broken pelvis. Deer are never hunted here so have zero fear of people.
Well Black powder season is officially over, and Modern firearms season is in. Last few days of black powder were pretty interesting, deer are starting to move really good, Rut is kicking in down here. My grandson and I went this past Thursday and killed a decent buck, we had deer running all around us, he got to see a few young bucks chase the lady's around. Then a bigger body deer hit the field, he said poppa Big deer, normally I would have chosen to pass on this deer, but I knew this was as good a time as any to get a buck on the ground with my grandson. So we smoked him! he tipped the scales at 151 lbs. My grandsons 3rd deer hunt, with 2 deer on the ground.
My son went yesterday afternoon, he said cold fronts moving in, the deer should be on their feet, I told him ought to be a good day, cloudy and overcast. Well, he had this big guy on the ground before dark, tipped the scale at 175 Lbs. I've got 2 curing out In the cooler now, I'll start processing these Sunday, My sons off next week, and Im off thanksgiving week....lots of venison fixin to hit the ground stay tuned.

When i was a teenager I worked weekends at a Humane society. One day someone dropped off a baby raccoon their dog killed its mother, I took it and bottle fed. My vet wormed him. The next day when i woke up I could not believe what i found. The whole floor of cage covered in large round worms, I could not believe so many came out of so small a body
