I spent every chance I had in the woods in a stand. With no luck. I got the chance to see the biggest woodpecker I’ve ever seen in my life, about a million squirrels. And one bobcat. (I took a shot at him but missed.)
Is that considered a successful hunting season? What constitutes a great season?
For me, this has been a dream season. It was a season of firsts. First bow. First trip up a tree. First hunting trip. First deer. It’s been amazing.
I can’t wait for next year.

Claire and I watched “Julie and Julia”. I was inspired to cook boeuf bourguignon which is just a fancy French way of saying beef stew. I got out my copy of “Mastering the Art of French Cooking” by Julia Child. I made it with some of the venison from my Alabama deer and beef so technically it wasn’t just boeuf bourguignon. We made a heck of a mess in the kitchen, but it turned out really well.
The pictures don’t look great, but it was really good.
