Deer Hunting in the Midwest

Deer hunting is an annual family tradition of mine.  I have been part of the annual hunt since I was born, but have never actually carried a gun and hunted the brown, furry animal.  For me, it is more of the social aspect and a chance to chatch up with all my relatives.  Starting the Friday night before opening morning and continuing for the next week, every day at dark, one of my generous relatives hosts a dinner for everyone.  

Lucky for me, I don't have to wake-up before the sun, bundle up in as many layers as possibly topped by blaze orange and trek through the swamp to sit in a wooden hut on stilts, waiting for the big buck. I do enjoy tasting the fresh backstraps of someone's hunt, but could never make the kill myself.
