Not washington but close enough
« on: January 15, 2020, 07:00:31 PM »
Deer die off in Blue Mountains.
Quite possibly the wrong spot for this story but it's not an advocate thing so thought this was better.
"When my bow falls, so shall the world. When me heart ceases to pump blood to my body, it will all come crashing down. As a hunter, we are bound by duty, nay, bound by our very soul to this world. When a hunter dies we feel it, we sense it, and the world trembles with sorrow. When I die, so shall the world, from the shock of loosing such a great part of ones soul." Ezekiel, Okeanos Hunter

That's a bit odd to hear they have it there. We had no mortality from it here in the Palouse this year, at least that I have seen and heard.

North more had it a year or 2 ago. Seems like itíll pop up here and there whenever. The new normal maybe.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield
