These two young doe and their mother passed by the other morning at a high speed gallop down the road in front and another recent morning I looked out through the bathroom window and watched the three wandering on the bank behind the cabin. I called the Mister in to see and he spotted a small buck trailing behind.
Yes, hunting season has begun. Buck season goes on for two weeks and doe season starts next Saturday. Venison meat meals fed our family well in the years past and we understand the reason for this season. No, it is not to hang big antlers on the wall. It really is to feed the family, especially here in our area.
The photos are of the two but I see no differences in size or weight so I think they are last year twins and their mother is probably with a boyfriend. About a week ago I saw a buck in the field beside our road which I truly thought was a longhorn steer. It really took me a few seconds to realize it was a buck. He was HUGE! His horns were shaped out and up just like a steer.
