Well, our deer hunting season in Northern New York has come to an end again already. Luckily, we were able to put some meat in the freezer as you saw in our last post, cause sometimes, it just doesn't happen that way. Hunting is never guaranteed, it's all about the time and effort you put into it. We had the opportunity to spend some time in the great outdoors with some very good friends and see some hunting lands that I haven't stepped foot on in many years. We had a field guide that is basically family from when I was a kid, spent some time with him after loosing touch for many years. Thank you Adam for showing us around the state properties. We will not lose touch again and we'll make many more outdoor memories to share. Met another long time friend that I haven't been able to spend much time with in many years. While hunting, we stopped on an old trail coming up out of the stream to meet. As we walked up, I saw a figure of a man in waders carrying a fishing rod. He was bearded and older, but exactly how I remembered him, the other 33% of the old trio, 😁 Virgil!. The best and most knowledgeable fisherman I know. We visited for a very short time and had to part ways once again. The three of us were inseparable for quite some time. A pleasure to be able to see them both and a glimpse of my past to share with a great friend of the present. Spent some time with my wonderful sister and her husband who provided the lodging and the best hot food that could not have been appreciated more after a long cold hunt, that's for sure! Thank you so much for having us and allowing hunting camp to be held in your livingroom. 😉 We didn't leave with any wild game, but moreover, left with a rekindled spirit of the wild. We hunted at home for a bit to finish off the last week of muzzleloader season. What great experiences we are able be a part of as hunters! Although the deer season is over here, we have only just begun to provide beautiful wild game for our families. Now starts the small game adventures! Back to the feelings of being that young kid with a shotgun in his hand, learning the ways of the wild game, getting outsmarted, outrun, and only sometimes sucessful. But, when we were, we ate the best food mother nature can provide. Pair that with some wild greens and that's really all humans were meant to eat. Throw in some fruits and wild nuts, what more could we need. Planning to get out there too? Let us know how you do, and please feel free to share some pictures. We'd love to see them!
