Took the last two days of season off, to hopefully put some venison in the freezer.
It has been a crazy busy year, yesterday was the first time I have been hunting this year by myself, ( took the youngins a couple times, but no luck.)
Yesterday sucked, pouring rain and wind gusts to 50mph, was not a day to be in a tree stand, did not even see a squirrel, let alone a deer.
Today was much better, two for two with the 6x68, got a yearling around lunch at 120 yards, and a jacked up six point at dark at 90 yards, neither one took a step, the 6x68 and a 100 grain partition did it's job.

I bought a new knife this summer, and these deer were the first time I have used it.
I am afraid my trusty Buck knife that I have been using for 30 years, and was used when I got it, has cleaned, skinned and de-boned literally hundreds of deer, hog, and various other critters, may slip into retirement.
The design of the Cold Steel Canadian belt knife is more comfortable to hold onto, did a great job skinning and de-boning . It is also easier to clean, and so far it is holding its edge.
