Non-typical Hunter

A Web log by Marc Anthony

I swear they know!

Today I was out of bed by 4:00 am. preparing for my trip to Canada. Low and behold, I looked out my bedroom window as the sun came up and saw 5 deer and one monster buck. In know this buck as I’ve seen him before. He’s a nice 150-160 class buck but today he didn’t have his head gear on! I think he shed his antlers over the weekend and now for some reason, he decides to pose for me for over 30 minutes! I have hunted this same nocturnal buck with no luck in the day time but I really think this old boy knows I’m going to leave for a trip today, so he wants to tease me! What he doesn’t know is the fact that he’s now safe…with me anyway. He might not be so lucky with the other hunters who hunt the same 100 plus acres down the road.

So here I am in Canada seeing deer almost everywhere I go. Unfortunately, I’m not hunting up here. Yeah, I saw deer in Mich. also. Indiana, Yep.

It must have been a good day to hunt!
