I gave it up over a decade ago. Initially I gave it up due to my family not liking to eat venison.
Later the door was shut tightly due to my knee and back problems.
I have come to terms with no more deer hunting.
He has been asking me to go again now for a couple years.
I almost bought a deer rifle last year. I had one in my hands and liked the way it felt. I added up the cost of the rifle and all the new gear I would have to buy and sat the rifle down and walked away.
He sent me these trail cam photos yesterday.
Thanks for the invite. Nearly had me again. Too costly. Family won't eat it. Knees and back won't tolerate it.
