Don't stay home just because it is windy!

I went deer hunting this morning. I saw an eight point buck but could not get a shot at it. About an hour later I did kill a doe.

There was some wind this morning but this afternoon it was blowing a gale. The weatherman said 30 to 40 mph. I have had experienced and supposedly knowledgeable deer hunters tell me that there is no use going hunting when the wind is blowing like that. So this afternoon I was debating with myself whether there was any use going hunting again. I made the comment to my wife wondering if that buck might be in the same place this afternoon that it was this morning. She said, "You will never know if you don't go." That decided me, I went.

Well, I didn't see that buck but I did see eleven deer. I could have shot three of them but I let them walk because they were small does or fawns.

I saw the first one before I got to my shooting house. In fact it was right beside my shooting house when I saw it. I just stood and watched it for about 15 minutes while it meandered around. Then I moved because I wanted to get into the shooting house and it spooked. It was about 3:30 when I got settled in the house. Between then and dark I saw ten more deer, two of which I could have shot but I let them walk.

So the moral of the story is, Don't stay home just because the wind is blowing!
(Luke 11:21 KJV) When a strong man armed keepeth his palace, his goods are in peace:

(Luke 22:36 KJV) Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.
