Complaining about deer? You are not alone

Mature bucks like this one can move in the middle of the day during the rut.

Ah, hunters. We are a pessimistic breed at times.

Deer? There are no deer in the woods! They’re all gone, some say.

I know, we’ve all felt that way at times. We’ll take a week off from work to chase an invisible animal which only exists on the walls of Cabela’s or our local sporting goods shop.

The e-mails and text messages I receive at times are quite funny. Yes, these are actual messages from hunters.

 

“Man once that sun gets over the trees it’s really hard to see in here.”

The sun makes it hard to see? OK then.

 

“Only way I’m gonna kill one is with my truck.”

That one is pretty funny. Hope it’s an old truck.

 

“When’s breakfast?!?!”

I received that text at 7:07 a.m.

 

“Haven’t seen a deer in forever.”

How long is forever, anyway?

 

So, if you haven’t seen many deer and you are feeling a little frustrated, just remember that you’ve got no shot from the couch. Every hunter has his/her low point, but now is not the time to feel sorry for yourself.

And if you don’t see a deer the next time you are in the woods, it’s OK to complain. You are not alone.
