hunting-10The next picture I saw was this one from when they were checking out the territory and setting up Cerwin’s ground blind.

hunting-12Jared shot this buck – with a broken antler – shortly after the opening of the season on Monday morning.

hunting-11Ian and Cerwin were in the same ground blind.

hunting-13By the end of the day, everyone saw deer, but Jared is the only one who had shooting.

hunting-14They were going to hunt again on Tuesday morning, but it was raining, so they headed home and stopped at a restaurant for breakfast.


hunting-16Cerwin wondered how I knew where they were eating when he texted this picture to me. I told him to read the placemat. 🙂

hunting-17While they stood in the garage, I stood in the rain to take this picture.

hunting-18Thanks to Jared, the Jere High family will have venison in the freezer this year.


Cerwin was in West Virginia a week earlier with our oldest son Jeff, his sons Jordan and Nate and our brother-in-law Marlin. Jeff was the only one who bagged a buck – so their family will also have some venison for the freezer. I didn’t see any pictures from that hunt. It was a cold, windy – sometimes snowy series of days for them.
