We have had a really good first weekend to the deer season. The weather has just about been to nice with a high Sunday of 69. Our deer camp has now grown to seven with Wally’s daughter, Aviana, hunting with the group. Aviana got in on her first deer, a nice doe on Saturday morning. A highlight was Sunday morning when Gerry and his grandson, Nolan, each got their buck. There was a friendly wager on who had the largest deer and it wasn’t close; Aviana beat them both. We are four for seven; Nolan got a spike buck during the youth hunt a couple weeks ago. Terry and I hunted the mornings and fished the afternoons. With all the activity on the river, one would think it’s the walleye opener, not deer season. Saturday afternoon, we fished the middle of the river in 19 feet of water. Fishing was steady with numerous little fish. We kept a limit of nice eaters. Sunday was slower with lots of little ones and missed bites, but not much to keep. The weather forecast for this week is good and we are looking forward to doing it again.
