Many of the hunters said this was one of the windiest days in which they have ever hunted.
At least it was fairly warm and not raining.
Even the birds perched on the ledge of the window (next to where I sat in the lounge doing my counted cross stitch) to get away from the wind.
We were surprised that the wind did not curtail a few fishermen – on the lake next to the hotel.
Many ladies gathered in the meeting room next to the lounge to work on a Christmas craft.
I just watched and took pictures.
It will eventually be a Christmas tree decoration.

A finished one.
A neat back story on this photo. It was about 10:00 a.m., and there were still no reports of any deer being harvested. This woman was one of the first two to hear that her husband had gotten a deer. She was so excited that her hand was shaking – the reason she was trying to stabilize the snowman for me to photograph.
This was the other of the first two women to hear that their husband had gotten a deer. She is looking at a picture that he had just texted her. The hunt officials had not even reported it to us yet.
In the afternoon, several vendors brought their wares to the lower level of the restaurant in the hotel – hoping to entice us to purchase something.
By evening this was the final count of deer that were shot – 12 – not too bad for the very windy day. Many of the hunters reported that they had not seen anything.
We feel like soldiers wives waiting for our men to return from battle. 🙂
Finally mine showed up. He was in the last of the twenty vans, because there were two late shots and the deer had to be taken to the slaughter-house. Cerwin had a good stand, but only saw a few doe. Many of the hunters didn’t see anything.
