Deer Hunting in Nebraska 2

We get up at 4:00 am, get dressed, eat a banana, brush our teeth and then Boone, a Cattle rancher here in Chadron, Nebraska who doubles as our hunting guide picks us up at 5:00 am. We drive to the spot we are going to hunt, climb up our assigned tree stand, a full hour before there is any daylight. The reason is so any deer we may have spooked getting to our stand will be calmed down by the time we can see them. That hour wait in the dark is cold and rather boring, but not as much as it could be because I pull out my cell phone and work on memorizing Bible verses using an app on my phone called “Scripture Memory”. When it gets shooting light I am looking intently for a deer and try not to spook him until he walks close enough for me to shoot him with my bow. The deer need to be 50 yards and closer for me to have a reasonable chance to shoot and hit them in a vital spot so as not to just wound them. I have had a dozen deer in that distance, but they have been does or small bucks, and I want to shoot a big buck. We come back to our rooms at 9:30 am and go to Boone’s house where his wife Nadeem cooks us breakfast, a really nice breakfast. Then back to our rooms to try and fit in an hours nap before Boone picks us up at 1:00 pm and off we go to the tree stands or ground blinds again, where we stay until 7:00 pm. After we get cleaned up we go back to Boon’s house again for a late night supper, a really good supper and really big, I might add. We climb into bed at 10:00 pm and then start all over again at 4:00 am. I skipped hunting this morning and went to church and had a wonderful time. The preaching was great and the worship was just like being at jbc. I slept in a little this morning, until 7:00 am, which felt really nice, then got up , did laundry, and off to church. It is now 9:44 pm so I am going to wrap this up so I can get 6 hours of sleep before the alarm goes off. Hopefully I will have a picture of a monster whitetail buck tomorrow night.
