Congrats Whit and Hobbler. I've been in my stand and lately seeing nothing. Looking at camera pics tells me they have gone nocturnal here already. Rarely a daytime shot of even a doe. Gun season starts Monday, but I may go on state land as they don't get moving much with all the private land owners all sitting hunting and no drives.
what a great Turkey day. My fiancee shot her 1st buck today. A 140lb 6 pt. One perfect heart shot at 230 yds. Such a great feeling so happy for her. She has been trying for 16 yrs. Pic to follow had to resize
Congrats to all sucessful. My son got a doe on our opening day of gun season and I was skunked. I see on my cameras that all the bucks survived in my area. I will go out in my woods, with the crossbow, come January when they start coming out more in daylight, and see how it goes. I hope I get one before they shed the antlers, but either way venison is good food!
But on Christmas Eve morning... it had rained and stormed the night before so the leaves were soaked... and that next morning it was calm and around 58 degrees (early that morning).. Perfect for squirrel hunting...
Below shows what it looked like as my boy Cole and I made our way into the woods... It was a beautiful sunrise and turned out to be an absolutely gorgeous day.
There are two good examples in the Bible of how us humans react when we consider this creation that we live in... Psalms 19. Myself personally I am in this group. David wrote that --- The sky proclaims the glory of God and the heavens the works of his hands. David considers the awesomeness of Gods creation and it is absolute proof that there is a God and he gives him glory for it. Read the rest of Psalms 19 and David goes on to consider how God would have him to live, his word, his instructions, etc... Next David considers his own sin, and even his unintentional sin... and he ends up praying a simple but powerful prayer... May the words of my mouth, and the meditations of my heart, be acceptable to you LORD, my rock and my Redeemer.
Now that is the ideal reaction for a man when he sees the awesomeness of GODS creation...
Unfortunately not everyone Sees the evidence and Reacts in this way (even though they are... without excuse)... Read Romans 1 - 19-32 for a good example of that. Notice how they end up when they do not see the Glory of God thru this Creation. Just watch the evening news... or go visit your local jail, or serve on a Jury panel... and you will see directly how people turn out when they fall into this group.
