After three or four forays into Black Rock Forest, today we harvested our first deer. She was a 7 and 1/2 year old doe, dressed at 104 pounds. Dan dragged her a half a mile out and felt every pound. It was quick and clean kill though the heart.  We should get a fair amount of venison from her to feed our family this winter. We are honored by the whole process.
