The deer camp meat pole in 2007.

Leaving today, there is a full moon, it is supposed to rain and I DON’T CARE.

No phone or Internet for five days and i should not encounter any anti-hunting coaches or lost teenagers. (There is satellite TV for football and such.)

It will be Sis and her husband and my life long hunting and shooting cousin; Johnny Walker. (No relation to the 80 proof version.)

I have my NULA .243 (Hornady GMX) R-15 in .30 Rem AR (Nosler AccuBond), A Marlin 1894 in .45 Colt (Barnes XPB) and a Ruger Blackhawk in .327 Federal (Speer Gold Dot).

The 11 point from the 2008 season. Buck is on the wall, Durango was traded away.

Either sex whitetail (with a multi-deer limit) and bear. WV is almost heaven!
