To much Snow

Buffalo New York has been getting hammered with snow already this year. I sure hope it doesn't get that bad where I am.

Processing your own Deer

It's been awhile but when I get a deer I saved money by processing it myself. Sure it's a lot of work but I always knew what I was getting and quite frankly it was very satisfying to do it myself.

Memories are not enough

Dont mind me while I piss and moan but I really miss being in the woods. I thought I could manage this season sitting it out but after deer hunting straight for the past 24 years it's not as easy as I thought it would be, or at least told my self it would be.

Just this past Sunday I was on my way home from getting some diesel for the oil tank and late afternoon with plenty of light left I saw four deer browsing in a field. It was windy and very cold and as I pulled over and watched them I had all these feelings and memories come rushing over me.

Just the thought of past hunts on a day such as that brought back to reality and it truly sucked. I always didn't get deer every year and I was fine with that but I was always out there and this year I'm not. I have all I can do just to get myself to work and back home again. In my position I find I'm tired of doctors, I'm tired of taking handfuls of pills everyday, tired of being in constant pain that sometimes is bad enough to keep me out of work and just plain freakin tired.

These pictures below were taken back in 2011, was the last deer I got before things really started to get bad.

It seems memories are all I have lately and to be honest it's not enough. My wife and kids to their credit can see how hard it is but do their best to keep me going.

Keep hoping and praying but no such luck.
