Ben: Saw nothing

NOTES: Tom finally gets his first deer in Cotton. A six point buck. Don't tell the DNR because he has tagged a deer each of the past 14 years. He thinks that a Hunting book deal is in the works because of his great success. His new nickname "Tag" seems appropriate. Jake made his first appearance in the doe race and has almost overcome Jeff in the points race with a 3 point buck. Not many deer were seen. Jeff sat 63 hours in his stand before he saw his first deer. Special K (Cory) has a new gun (30.06). Matt aka "Blue" came along for his first year of hunting. Sam showed up second weekend to see what hunting is all about. The shack was enlarged to 17X20 and a third camper was purchased. "Dinky" is now home to "Button" and "Spalding". "Special K" and "Blue" now bunk with "Last Minute Larry" and "Newby". We have a hockey helmet that you need to wear when you say something stupid, we found out very quickly that the helmet knows no boundaries however Cory seemed to be donning it the most.

Everything between the events listed above was filled in with a lot of solitude and squirrel and grouse watching. Mitch did see some deer but were either too far out or it was a doe with a fawn which he decided not to take.
