    Well I hate to say it, but I got skunked. I hunted first season shotgun, and the only deer I saw was about 4:45 sunday evening. I let the boy shoot at them, there was 4 does, it was a long shot, but he is capable at that distance. Anyway I could here shooting all around me, and I have a good place to hunt, but no cigar. I would have definately liked to have taken a deer, but just being out in the timber is enough. My only option now is late bow season. Oh well no point in whining about it, just move on. I was abit surprized at my luck, this is my honey hole.
    Later Andy

    All deer hunters go though it. Being out in the woods with your son and seeing him shoot at a deer now thats worth getting skunked.
