Kathleen took Hunter Safety this year and was eligible, for the first time, to hunt with Joe. She had some great experiences in her several days of hunting this season, although she was disappointed not to bag a deer herself this year.
Having said that, we do have a freezer full of venison now, thanks to Joe and his buddies. (And as of today, we also have a freezer full of lamb meat, thanks to our farmer friends, the Wiedenbecks.) Next year, it will be Kathleen also bringing home the venison (and maybe Anna Marie too, as she hopes to take Hunter Safety in the spring).
Bring on the venison stew... the venison jerky... the grilled venison... the venison gyros... the venison shish kebobs...
Mmmm... I'm getting hungry.
