few pics from this weekends hunt.. saw a doe but alas, i needed to fill a buck tag..... my hand guard kept getting wicked cold being metal and all.. so i made this little cover.. camo pattern wool. held on with velcro.. helped a lot.... was a good season, i saw deer most times i went out.. but one can never have to much jerky.. at least theres next year.
I have been a silent witness
to all of America's finest hours.
But my finest hour comes
when I am torn into strips and used as bandages
for my wounded comrades on the battlefield,
When I fly at half-mast to honor my soldiers,
Or when I lie in the trembling arms
of a grieving mother
at the graveside of her fallen son.
