Springtime for the Deerslayer’s Wife

Deer season is over.  The freezers are full. Most people would think that there’s no reason to head out to the hunting lease or ranch.  Au contraire, mon ami!

This is the time of year that we clean out watering troughs, trim branches that start to extend out over the roads, and just generally clean up after an active hunting season.

For me, it’s the most beautiful time to be out at the hunting camp.  It’s less hectic, quieter.  The chores that do need to be done can wait until after I’ve taken in a glorious sunrise with a steaming cup of coffee and the sound of birds all around.

In the Texas Hill Country, tiny flowers and leaves anticipate the first day of spring.  20190211_1044031159581984.jpgThere was a time when I didn’t see the natural beauty that has been there all along if only I’d looked more closely.  Before I chose to embrace the hunting lifestyle for the sake of my beloved, I missed out on so much.

The thrill of seeing the first bluebonnets on the ranch or the first sprigs of mesquite leaves brings me more joy than any piece of jewelry or dinner at any exclusive restaurant ever could.

I’m so grateful that I can share these experiences with my family, friends, and you!
