Jason and I are headed to Kentucky for the weekend... for a much anticipated deer hunt! Wooowhooo!!! Can you tell I am excited? Georgia's bow season doesn't open for one more weekend, so it works out perfect for us to go there this weekend to try and harvest a whitetail, or maybe even two :) I can't wait!! Also in Kentucky you can bait, where as in Georgia baiting is illegal. Jason's parents are friends with a couple who bought a farm in Kentucky and moved their to retire, and they are letting us hunt their property for free!! They have also been putting corn out for us and emailing us trail camera pictures of the deer... I haven't met them yet, but just from hearing Jason talk about them they seem like they are super sweet people. I can't wait to meet them tonight. Hopefully I will have some good pictures to post when we get back (sorry to all of you animal lovers out there). Those of you who are against hunting, just think about how many deer get hit by cars every year, think about car insurance rates increasing if the deer population gets out of control, and just know that everything we do is extremely ethical and much less disturbing than the way they kill the cows, pigs, and chickens you eat everyday. Sorry for the pro-hunting spill, but I just don't want people to think that hunting is a bad thing, even if you can't see yourself killing a deer (because I completely understand that). Have a good weekend!!!
P.S. I just watched a video on my friend Andrea's blog here. Her and her husband are part of an incredible organization called Wiphan, and they are starting a project called Operation Silent Night.
