Today was a beautiful day to hunt. I didn't see many deer. One little buck went by me at 15 yards. That didn't spoil the day. As you can see I'm not just in it for the deer. Here are a few other things I saw.
A curious coon...
I was serenaded by a huge flock of Cedar Waxwings. I always knew they were handsome birds, but I never realized how wonderful their song is.
The geese were flying South in droves.
I didn't go home empty handed. Mother Nature left me a small present.
Then she put on an amazing show!
I hope this helps explain why one would hunt. Yes, I enjoy the meat and the thrill of the chase, but I also enjoy just spending a day in nature.
