Roy and I went up for the last day of MN Rifle Deer Season. Roy was the only who from the crew who drew a doe permit for the unit. It was cold in the morning, at least to me, 20 degrees and predicted not to get above 30 degrees for the day. Roy walked out to John’s stand and I put on the rest of my cold weather clothes, then wander off to Jessie’s stand on the EastEnd.  I didn’t see anything on the way out, but my fingers had gotten numb and were hurting as they warmed up. I made it out to Jessie’s stand and settled in, hoping to see anything.  I was shooting Archery so I could take a buck or doe. The morning was clear and the wind was barely moving and there was an heavy hoar frost on everything giving the woods a ghostly hazy appearance. The voles, mice and squirrels starting moving just after sun up and tricked me into thinking that deer were approaching as I dozed lightly. There were no deer to be seen while I was in the stand. I finally had enough of the cold, climbed down, swapped out the memory card on the camera near Jessie’s stand and started the walk in. As I started down the slope past the meadow near Roy’s stand, I scared up two deer. They stopped in the thickets in the slew. Even if I had a rifle, I didn’t have a good shot for either one.  I stood still for about 10 minutes, hoping they would come back around, no such luck. Once I was at the meadow near the cabin, I reset Kip’s blind that had blown over in the wind storm from a few days ago. Roy wandered over and told me about what he had seen. Midday, Roy moved to Roland’s stands and didn’t see anything until he got down from the stand, then scared up two deer also, but he no chance to lower his rifle to get a shot. There were two white flicks of tail and the deer were gone.  Roy lamented that he couldn’t say he hadn’t seen any deer this year. We drove around the property and saw four deer standing on the edge a of meadow on Lenard’s property. “Crappity-doo!!” Not quite what we said, but close enough. Roy figured the deer were giving the equivalent of the razzberry and “na-naw-na-naw-naaa!”. Next year deer, next year...

Kip and I went up for the second weekend Rifle Deer. We had purchased two new ground blinds and set both in the meadow near the cabin Friday evening. Everyone saw there was lots of activity in the meadow throughout the year; deer prints everywhere...
