A little more deer hunting

I’m convinced that it is easier to get a deer with a rifle than with a camera. Saturday afternoon I had a beautiful eight point buck within ten yards of the deer stand. He came up from the blind side and was there when I first saw him. I made a slight move and he bounced off a few yards and then walked away with his tail standing straight up. It was a kodak  moment that got botched. Sunday morning a nice doe stood broadside in the trail; first one side; then the other. The darn auto focus didn’t seem to work when I tried to use the zoom feature. I guess I’m not cut out to be a wildlife photographer.

Wally got a nice fork horn on Saturday morning. We are now four for four.

On Saturday after lunch, Wally, Nolan and I fished the river for a little over an hour. We caught about a dozen walleyes and saugers. We kept three small saugers and two nice walleyes; released the rest that were all small.
