Hunting season .... we are meat eaters in our family. When we hunt, we hunt to feed the family, not for the sport.
We have great respect for Mother Nature and all she provides for us. This year however, was a bust. Hunting season is over for another year. No deer were shot. Our freezer will now have to be filled with beef, chicken and pork on sale from the grocery store instead.
Word around these parts is the overabundance of wolves which in turn chase the deer away. A neighbor stopped by last week and informed us that when he was passing by earlier the day before a large grey wolf was spotted leaving our driveway.
My morning walks will need to be kept close to the house and definitely during daylight hours. Our pets will need to be kept indoors for the time being. I hope the wolves move along soon and the deer move back in. There is nothing prettier than watching the deer make their way along the property after a snowfall. They are so graceful and beautiful.
