Ze' Deer!!!


"A crowd has gathered to greet you!!"


After we heard the news of Wesley's fete, we tumbled and tripped in the chilly fall air and all gathered around the specimen, hooked onto the clothesline for butchering! Kress says that "she is in a state of complete shock." ;)

Wes is the very fist man on our farm to shoot a deer after many years of faithful hunting. (Truth be told, every man and his brother around here hunts deer for a living in the fall, so there really aren't that many to hunt, actually. Least it seems like it. :)
"Mr. Grumpy Gills!!" "Ummm...that looks good!"Food!!""Feel her paws."Wes demonstrating how he shot the young buck...
John and Mama dear look on at the proceedings...
Proud, happy housewife....A whole cooler full of tender, flavorful meat for her winter's menus!!

Three cheers, to Wes, our "great white hunter"!

Nice!

Here we have a tradition of "bloody-ing" the hunter on his first deer. Tis messy though and does not make for nice blog pics and would probably scare the litle babies...

Here, we have actually have more alligators than deer this year. My husband has a couple friends who dog hunt deer who have each lost 2 dogs to them this year. Very sad and makes me want to cry. Very thankful my husband does not dog hunt...

Congrats! It does look like everyone was excited!

Ummm, wow! Nice deer pics! Yummmmm...we will be doing the hog in a few days. Well, I won't be out there, I will be in here, so I won't pass out! I will be able to bag it and wrap it though (I pray!)!!!!!

When are you all coming for a visit?
