Stephen's catch of the day

Woo Hoo, Stephen got an "11" point buck. In case you didn't know, that means it is a spike. It is an Axis that escaped from a local exotic hunting ranch. If they escape, they are free game, as you can't exactly return them, and you don't have to tag them...so they are kinda like getting an "extra" deer. We have never got an Axis before. I hope he is tasty. And I suppose I will tell you my Becky Moment. While Stephen was gutting it, he suddenly gasped and said "It's Pregnant!" I responded with "Oh no, are you serious?" To which he started laughing at me and said "Becky....it's a buck." Duh. I don't always think very smartly on the spur of the moment.
Well, praise the Lord for providing. I hope we can fill a freezer with deer this year.

Whoo Hoo. Congratulations, Stephen!
Dad thinks it is neat, but thinks you should not post such graphic photos, lest you offend a whacko.
(Especially since you done showed them you live out in the boonies, and have no neighbors....)LOL
