Deer season is back..finally! The summer has drug out long enough, it’s time to swap out the t-shirts for flannels and climb trees again. The first entry for the fall goes out to Mrs. Maves. Heather, bless her heart, headed out to North Dakota to join her husband Chad, and 3 other guys in camp for opening weekend. 4 guys and a girl packed into a 3 person camper..let the good times roll! The crew put on a lot of miles scouting the area prior to opening day. Cameras were checked, and stands were hung. The anticipation of opening day is unlike any other. Before heading out to hunt, the group drew numbers from a hat to see who was hunting where. As Lady Luck would have it, Heather drew #1 out of the hat, meaning she got first pick on which spot she would like to hunt. Heading into the stand with confidence high, Heather was ready! As the night progressed, she laid eyes on 6 different good bucks, all of which were out of range. Later in the evening, a good buck was lingering around 100 yards from the stand. Sure enough, the buck began working towards Heather. After what seemed like an eternity the buck was in bow range and Heather was at full draw. A great shot yielded Heather with her first buck since she became a mom back in 2013, and not for the lack of trying over the years. Congrats Heather, hell of a way to kick off the season!
