    Heat wave, 19F. Went out and saw a young doe and 3 little ones. Not that hungry so they walked. A nice older doe or a buck I will take, but it takes as much effort to clean a little one as it does a big one. We shall see what tomorrow brings.

    This is similar to my sob story. I didn't go out once for ML season. It began here Jan. 8th, the day after regular rifle season closed. It was too cold for my butt even in the 20s and 30s. Also, it was raining on the few days between the coldest temps.

    I just wasn't mad enough at the deer this year to brave those elements. Then when it did warm and dry up enough to interest me, I had to go to my aunts funeral. So it just wasn't Gods plan.

    Yes but you're used to hunting in shorts and barefoot. Possibly even a loincloth.

    Glad to see some fellow PA hunters here. The six feet of snow we received over Christmas put a damper on me making it out this season. I enjoy the flintlock season the most and didn't make it out a single time. Grrrr.... I will have to wait until next year!

    Get into competition black powder shooting- - - -they do it all year. Some of the most expensive hamburger I ever ate was "won" at the Alvin York shoot in March, for about 10 years. I think it worked out to about 50 bucks a bite!

    When I was on a lease north of Uvalde Texas in 1987-1989, some of the people on the lease would kid with me telling me to let them grow up before I shot them. We had a five deer limit back then and I was killing at least two nubber bucks a season. Man, those are fine eating. We still had a pile of larger deer. That was a great lease. I often ask my self, WHY Did I ever let it go?
