Deer hunt update and Vote for Jeff!

Hey, gang. Check out my home page for a link to the Packers Fans Hall of Fame voting site, where you can vote for Jeff Kahlow, of Big Guy Hats. Jeff is the most rabid Packer fan I know and a guy who really deserves to be in the hall of fame.

You can vote once a day until December 9, so do it now and come back often!

Well, we did another day of TV deer hunting today, adding Jerry Kiesow and Bob Worth to our group. In a nutshell, we moved one nice buck that jumped out behind the drivers and eluded the standers and a small buck and a doe that ran past the standers so fast there was no hope for a good shot. Got a quick run-by on tape, however, so our day was not a total bust.

Charlie & Gail and I are going back at it again in the morning, determined to put one on the meat pole. We’ll keep you posted.

Later…

Deer quest continues!

Different place, different strategy today. Hunted in Town of Saukville with Bill Worth and Charlie and Gail Thon and a TV crew of Jose Lozano and Jeff Moorbeck. Light snow covered the ground as we made our way to our stands this morning. We sat at four strategic locations in a small woodlot until 8:00, then Bill walked out and made a big swing through thick brush and pushed out two does that didn’t follow the game plan. Instead of staying in the ribbon of cover leading to the woods and our waiting guns, they cut across the field within sight but just out of range of Gail, who reported their escape to the rest of us. The rest of Bill’s one-man drive netted nothing, so we spent an hour taping scenes of hunters doing what hunters mostly do – sitting and waiting. Then it was lunch at Bublitz’s in Saukville. Every time I pass Blau’s Saukville Meats during deer season, I am reminded that I haven’t dropped off a deer there yet.

The way things are going, I’ll have to pick up a road kill like I did last year!

We’re hunting the same plan again tomorrow, adding Jerry Kiesow, an avowed smokepoler, and perhaps one or two other hunters.

Later…
