A week ago we travelled to my parents' house in Brainerd in hopes of a successful deer hunt. For Mike that is. The kids were more interested in:
Hanging out with the cats
And brushing their teeth in the shower?
Mike had a pretty good time too!
8 points, his biggest yet.
He actually got this buck over on my brother's property near Ironton, so thanks, Eric and Bridget. A venison package is set aside for you.

The final stats:
20 lbs of steaks and roasts
13 lbs of pepper sticks
10 lbs of jerkey
15 lbs of summer sausage
Here is a sampler platter:
