Normally my guy is out hunting during the season but this year he has had too many sinus surgeries to be out there tromping through it. I usually go by myself with my friends and usually he goes with his.  We both have hunting groups we have been with for many years so it’s one of the few things we do separately. I’ll miss it this year too, sadly, it’s my show of solidarity.

Dh got his dear thrid day of the season this year (where I’m from you get one tag combingin bow, muzzle and rifle). We had the backstraps yesterday and they were awesome. We also ground a lot of the meat and I’ve made one batch of jerkey.

I don’t mind hunting, it can be a lot of fun, but since I’m pregnant and I pee every 12 minutes I didn’t have an interest in going this year (except for grouse).

My only real issue is that our season run into eatchother, grouse starts in September and runs until december with moose sep-oct and deer nov-dec. So I’m totally abandoned every weekend.

I’be been dealing with opening days since September when early goose opened! So trust me I feel your pain! Opening day is my birthday so i dragged him away from deer camp for a while. But this weekend alone he got a doe, 4 geese and he trapped his first fox! So he’s been out like crazy! I’m really not excited to wash all his camo

@wildflowerbee:  Mine just got his first buck of the season….although we did notice all the deer around where we live seem to keep getting over populated and are kind of sickly looking….but his buck looks good….and we are getting all the meat processed into steaks, and various cuts….but my FAVORITE of every year is the jerkey and sticks! YUMMY! I love it! Plus i know it is a great way for him to unwind after harvest every year….
