2012 Opening Weekend for Archery Deer Season

Well opening weekend came and went. Even though I had both kids with me (4 and 6), they did not sit in the stand with me since it RAINED all weekend! Central Texas has been under drought conditions for some time now and it finally rains in my area and it happens to be on opening weekend. Well, the rain not only discouraged my children from hunting with me but also kept the deer away.

The only animals I saw where a few turkey and it began to rain just as they came up. I tried to cover my camera with my water proof hat and dropped it. They saw me and my hat and took off. The only thing I ended up killing over the weekend was some beer. Hopefully next weekend will be better. I plan to do a little dove and predator hunting in South Texas and hope to get some video from that hunt to post to the channel. In the mean time, here are a few pics from the weekend. The only animals that we got was a turkey that one of the 12 year olds shot with his bow and a baby rattle snake I ran over with the Jeep.
First Turkey Ever!
Almost got the Jeep Stuck!
The view from my Tree Stand, about a 25-30 yard shot.
The tip of the iceberg!  The 2 wheel drive F350 almost did not make it back to the house as the skies opened up on us.
I found this baby rattle snake in the road while on one of my walks.  We must have run over him that morning.  The ants are about half a centimeter in length.  From what I can tell, there is no rattles on this snake yet.
