I'm going to try to introduce my self, I love to hunt and fish and be OUTDOORS. I was Born in Michigan and live there for many years. We moved to Alabama in 1997 and have lived here since then. I've been driving a big truck for most of my life and have missed a lot of the growing up of our boys.

So the beginning of this year I decided to try to work from home and since I missed so much of our children growing up maybe I can make some of that up with them and the grandchildren.

I'm really new at this computer so bear with me. I started this blog a couple of weeks ago and until then I'd never even heard of a blog and I'm open to any advise your willing to share. I really enjoy the posts I read on some of the other blogs.

I'm looking forward to hunting season this year and sharing some new experiences with the fellow bloggers.

1st Al. BUCK: Two years ago I was sitting under a nice cedar tree that drapes down to the ground and it was the first time I've ever used a doe call. I had been sitting in that spot a lot that season and I just kept using that doe call.

Finally on Nov. 8th, I was using that doe call and I heard something I had never heard before except on TV and I thought what the heck was that, then I realized it was a buck grunt. I called again and waited about a minute and a beautiful 8 point buck stepped out of the woods, head high and was sniffing the air looking for that doe.

That made a believer out of me and the way that doe call works. I thought I was going to jump out of my skin. The buck walked over by the pond, and then he walked across a opening about 45 or 50 yards away.

I was shaking so bad I could hardly draw my bow, I got a good bead on him, and remember I'm sitting on the ground so getting a good position for a shot is kind of difficult, but the buck stopped and looked right at me.

That made me more nervous, but I already had a good bead on him so I touched my release and the arrow found it's mark and that was the first buck I shot in Alabama, and man was he tasty.
