Deer Camp 2014


Ah, the chill is in the fall air in the great state of Michigan. It’s a little early to be 15°F in the morning, but we’ve had these kinds of days in November before. The Rifle Deer Opener came and went this past weekend with some good sightings and some successful hunters this past weekend.  A great group of usual characters showed up at Deer Camp this year and the camaraderie was in high gear.  We started out putting up a tree stand in a great place so that we could archery hunt from that perch. It turned out to be a prime spot the next day as a lucky hunter took a 7-pointer later the next day. Another seasoned young hunter took a 9-pointer early on opening day and was enjoying the warmth of the fire back at the lodge.

Out in the Blind

My Hunting adventures for the weekend were exciting and filled with lots of activity out in the Death Valley Deer Blind.  The Deer were active during most of the day and there wasn’t an hour that went by that didn’t see some activity down near my blind.  A flock of about 50 turkeys spent most of the afternoon milling around the blind and they were very awesome to watch.  To wrap up a great weekend, I was unable to put a Deer on the Buck Pole this year as the bucks just didn’t show up in Death Valley during the two days I was there.  It was reported later on Sunday afternoon after I had left Deer Camp, that a 12-point Buck strode across Death Valley within range of my blind.  I would have enjoyed seeing that Buck.  He’ll have to wait until next year.
