Back in the saddle
After my opening day failure to harvest a deer, it was reassuring and very satisfying to succeed this past weekend. However, I will add that the title of the post refers to what it felt like to carry over a 100 pounds of deer for over 4 hours with over a thousand feet of climbing. I felt like the deer was riding me like a horse!
Gregg and I camped out Saturday night and found our deer at dawn Sunday. We got back late in the afternoon - needless to say we were whooped.
