Deer Day


Firearm deer season began today in Michigan. Deer day is a HUGE deal in our rural area.  Local schools even close when November 15th lands on a weekday.

DH shot a 4-point with a wide, even span. And Papa shot a 6-point this morning as well. These deer will feed our families nicely through the next year.  I very rarely purchase any beef.  Instead, I substitute venison for nearly any recipe which calls for beef.

I held my camera out of our loft window to snap the above photo of DH. He was pausing before he approached the buck, which conveniently fell in the field next to the path.

Out of respect for some blog readers who happen to be vegetarian or easily nauseated, I’ve decided not to post any close-up photographs:)

We’re proud of our hunters.
