One of our neighbors came by today, as he was headed out on a week-long hunting trip, to let us know deer/elk hunting season begins tomorrow. We live in an area heavily trafficked by deer, and apparently there are hunters who frequent this area, even though there are many homes scattered about.
My father was not a hunter; my husband is not a hunter; and I, being a vegetarian, am most definitely not a hunter. Even though I was raised in north Louisiana, where hunting is the next best thing to sliced bread, it was never a part of my life. And frankly, I do not understand the "thrill of the kill" mentality.
Neal is headed out to place "No Hunting" signs on our property lines, and we will be on the lookout for any hunters who think they can score a nice "rack"on or around our property. And, I pray that the deer take shelter in the comfort of our wooded areas and learn to distinguish friend from foe.
