Opinion

Listen To Life

  When dandelions dot my lawn, I reach for the weed and feed to kill them.  But then I remember my daughters picking the little yellow flowers to give to their mother and blowing the downy seeds to make a wish.

  When I’m walking around our farm and the wind starts whipping down the mountain, I steel myself against it, sometimes reach up for what’s left of my hair, and grouse if I’m walking up hill about how I wish the wind was blowing in a different direction.

Outdoor Truths
Outdoor Truths
            This was one of those mornings where it seemed the deer were everywhere. As soon as the dimmest light shone over the mountains, I had already located a small yearling doe feeding in the acorns beside my stand. Just a few minutes later 2 older doe were filtering across the hill just out of range of my bow. By now my expectations for the day were on high alert. I couldn’t have been more right. For nearly 3 hours I watched deer come and go without ever giving my location away. It was fun…….. except for the moment in the middle of this morning when I shot over the back of a deer. Missed her completely. In fact, she would have had to have been about 18 inches taller for me just to nick her back. It was that bad.
