Local Meat

We have a seven-pointer hanging in the barn today. While in his tree stand this morning, Paul saw eight coyotes playing, a pileated woodpecker in flight, two four-point bucks sparring, a couple of migrating woodcock, a six-point that broke up the four-points, and a couple of does. None of the bucks were the crooked-antlered one we have seen up at the house. But it was a busy morning.

This is the first deer he's taken in a couple of years. Since Roxie is now on a venison-and-sweet-potato regimen for her allergies ($50/bag!), we're happy to have the meat for more than one reason.
