  • Crazy deer!

    On the 7th of December, up in northwestern Wilkes County, my husband & I went out to our hunting houses as was usual for us this time of year. The day was long and I hadn't seen a single deer so I decided it was time to go. I put my things together in my pack and just as I was getting ready to open the door, I saw movement out of the corner of my eye. I looked to my left where I saw no less then 8 does! They were meandering around the pond we have back in the woods. Of course, at this point, I sat back down in my chair and proceeded to get ready just in case a buck came out of the pine thicket chasing one of the does.... the sunlight was lessening every minute and I knew I only had a few moments before I would no longer be able to see the deer. Then, suddenly a head poked out of the pine thicket.... and it was a deer whom we ended up dubbing the 'crazy deer' because of his odd rack. He has 2 points on one side and 5 on the other making him a 7 pointer. The mess of the left side was quite impressive! If only he had two impressive sides but, as it is, we can honestly say we have never seen or noticed any buck with this rack.
    For a mountain deer, ol' crazy deer was impressively huge! Took 4 adults to get him in the deer carrier on the back of our truck! He was definitely over 200 pounds!!
    So, that just goes to show you, that you never know when or where some ol' crazy deer may pop out of the woods and into your sight!
