Hibernation...

It was a nice fall while it lasted.  I regret not taking more photos of the leaves.
Now fall is over and winter is clawing it's way in.  The poor trees took the brunt of it.  I have to admit, I pretty much hibernated this weekend.  I did make some apple crisp and chocolate zucchini muffins. After all you need to hibernate on a full belly.
 We did go bow hunting this afternoon.  I had a blast.  There were lots of does and fawns.  They came right up to the blind.  A little rabbit kept me company.  Even though he knew I was next to him, he just hopped around nibbling on everything there was to nibble.  I never saw a buck, but it was an enjoyable sit.

As my husband and I walked out, a fawn came running up to within 10 yards and followed us back to the truck.  He doesn't seem to have a mother and must have been lonely.  The moon was amazing.  It looked like the giant pumpkin rising from the prairie.

Are you ready for winter?  After my flurry of preparation, I know I'm ready for a long winter nap.

  2. Beautiful photos! Snow has found us as well, it’s too early, but I always say that, I agree , a full belly is a must before hibernation lol, the poor fawn, following you back, hard life sometimes. Our grandson shot his first 10 point buck with his bow Saturday, he is a very proud fella! I’m glad the rabbit kept you company, lol, must have known you were out for larger game!
