This hunting trip ended with plenty of meat

IMG_4391We’re just about to wrap up this hunting trip to Georgia. We didn’t get out everyday, we stayed home during the worst rain, and a few days didn’t pan out. Overall, it was fairly successful.

Shot from the “luxury box” and took a small buck

We got out into the woods five times. I ended up with two does and one buck. Ray shot a doe, an 8-point buck, and a 250-pound pig. We might go out again, but I think we’ve got enough meat.

Little 8-pointers don’t make it to the taxidermy shop. (Ray has many others matching this fellow)

The last two deer we took today. Ray shot his around 4 PM and I shot mine at around 5:15 PM. Both were taken to Adam Bohler in Tignal for processing. I’ve already picked up the first deer I shot and hope he’s got my second ready by Friday. These last two won’t be ready before I head back to NC. Ray will get them both up and store mine in a freezer until I can get back down to pick it up.

Lady bugs were all over the place

There’s a nice 10-point buck roaming around on the property. I might head out for a bit tomorrow and see if I can get him. Or maybe I’ll hang out and practice shooting dots. In either case, we’ll be heading back to NC with plenty of meat.
