|Negotiating the 'Hellawee' grass|
Back at camp we set up the tarp tent and cooked dinner. Outside the tent the black flies were awful, but they did not seem to like it under the tarp. The sunset views from our little perch were spectacular.
We got up an hour and a half before dawn and cooked up coffee and instant mash potatoes with ham. It slowly got brighter and brighter until there was enough light to see deer through the binoculars, and then we left camp. There were deer everywhere.
We snuck up on a bachelor group and the biggest deer was just walking into the brush. A small 3 point walked down the deer trail towards us - now that's a deer who wants to get harvested! And so we had our deer, and after a relatively short hike out, we arrived home around 10:30 AM. Patrick
