"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"!
