Disclaimer: To all my female friends that read my blog, this post might not be that interesting to you, unless you come from and married into a long line of hunters like I do, then you'll 'get it' ! :)

Tim's brother, Paul, who also happens to be an avid hunter, heads out this way every year for opening day of deer season. Sat. morning finds both Tim and Paul up at 5:30 am, dressed and ready to go in order to get to their stands before the sun comes up. That few minutes while the sun is rising seems to be one of the most important times of the day, the other time being right before sunset. Tim had only been in the stand 5 minutes on the first day when this buck came along, he hasn't had the best of luck the last couple years so this 8 point didn't stand a chance, he was down and laying in the back of the truck before he knew what hit him!Monday was the second day for hunting, Paul shot a nice doe but not too much luck that day. Tim was thinking that even though he had taken the next day off, that he might go into work, they just really weren't seeing any more bucks. Well, Paul talked Tim into hunting all day Tuesday and it looks like it paid off for both of them! Paul shot an 10 point and Tim shot a 11 point, his biggest buck yet! Tim informed me that this buck scored a 140, I guess this is considered a B & C score, pretty good!
Paul and Tim show off their bucks!

Those are beautiful bucks! Way to go, guys! I love the pictures too - they are so neat. I told Joe he's only allowed ONE deer in our freezer this year... that's all that we eat, usually. So, we'll see if he complies. The older I get, the more I dislike cutting up all that meat anyway!
