Having grown up in Colorado and northern Minnesota I am very familiar with the rituals of hunting season. Personally, I’ve never participated in the hunt, but did help the family hunters out by making sure there was hot soup and other feasts for the belly when they came back in. This time of year has always been hard for the animal lover in me, and with social networking booming it is getting even harder. Turning to facebook during this time of year is a challenge because of the number of photos posted of hunters with their “prize”. I did notice that this year there have not been as many photos posted and that makes me want to high five the deer 🙂 There has still been a large number of dead deer photos posted and I thought I would share a photo that I took this summer of a very live and healthy deer.
