Quite a wake-up call in the deer blind this morning! Seems we set up beneath a huge flock of gobblers.
Whose woods these are I think I know,
a quiet place Robert Frost would go,
but here we sit in quiet peace,
disturbed by noisy turkey show;
My wife must think it very queer,
I chose to set our deer blind here,
when all we’ve heard and seen this morn,
are many gobblers all quite near;
I give my frozen hands a shake,
to try to warm for shooting sake,
but the only permits yet to fill,
are for some deer not here this date;
These woods are certainly dark and deep,
we seek venison not feathered meat,
but escapes us now as we retreat,
escapes us now as we retreat.
And of course, later on, they all come right to us. Number of deer tags to fill--4. Number of turkey tags to fill--ZERO!
