Well these are a week late but what the heck. This is the little deer i got on opening morning. We had gone with Jon's family camping out at Utah Mines near Indian peaks. Well we were kind of limited to where we could go because it was cold and we had Mylee, so we basically just cruised around in the pickup. It was 8 in the morning, opening morning and Turley called on the radio for Jon to tell us Misty had got a deer. So he told us that they were up to Atchison. So we got up there and Jon helped Turley clean it out and they were just getting it loaded when i spotted my buck up on the hill just coming over the top towards us. So Jon grabs the gun and off we go hiking straight up. Well i about DIED!!! I stopped and told Jon that i couldn't go any further and he told me that we only had to go a little more and we could probably see him. So I got up and started walking again. Well we seen him and Jon said, "if you want him then you better shoot now." I picked up the gun and couldn't even hold it up. I told Jon that he had to help me hold it. WOW - I KNOW - WHAT A WIMP I AM - So he helped me hold the front of the gun up and i closed my eyes and shot. I hit him right in the heart at about 200 to 250 yards. Lucky shot. But we ended up coming home Sunday afternoon and hunting here the rest of the time. Jon got him a little 1 x 3 on Tuesday night. We had quite a fun hunt this year.

Hey Jess! I have been stalking your blog for months now so I have no place to stop anyone! We are pretty boring, but feel free to come over anytime. How are you? We really need to get together and quit just saying it. Mylee is getting huge and she is a doll! I can't even believe her eyes. You seem good and I am so glad!
