Deer Season!!!!
 
Hello everyone….Here in my state of Texas we are now less than 30 days out from the opening of whitetail deer season and I’m wondering if anyone else here follows the spiritual path of the hunter….and if so how they prepare for it.

Myself and my 11 year old grandson Nick who is best buddy and partner a-field since he was three years old are now well into preparations….

For Nick this started sooner than I but he’s young and extremely excited about the coming season……this past summer he was already doing upper body strength work, running and getting into shape ....tuning his bow and shooting on our backyard range every day.

But he is also meditating and going within for the calmness , clarity and focus that will be needed to stalk an animal with some of the best eye’s ,ears and nose in the animal kingdom….

So as the hunt draws near and we celebrate our proud genetic heritage as the “thinking hunter” and solemnly contemplate the part our species plays in the circle of life that we exist in….I’m wondering how others go about this process…..


P.s….Mods….I was unsure where to put this….if this is not the right place feel free to move it!

I don't hunt deer. But i'm always prepared to kung fu their a** if they ever try to attack me.

I'm always alert, aware of my surroundings. Always ready for possible deer attacks. You never know when a gang of deers or kangaroos might just wander through a busy city street and try to mount an attack on me of all people.

So my spiritual awareness is not to hunt but to defend against such attacks. So far i've never seen a deer or kangaroo wandering through a city BUT, you never know. Always be ready.

LOL!

While deer attacks sounds laughable and is in fact fairly rare....it does happen!!

There are many deer where I live. They are Roe Deer in my area.
I have a fondness for them. Once when I was out with my dog, a couple of them stayed close, not afraid and watched the frisbee as it flew through the air.
One of them even started heading towards the frisbee, as if it was curious or....(even wanted to join the game??)
My dog knew if the deer didn't run, she wouldn't chase them.

I love deer for their intelligence and gracefulness, and would have no wish to hunt them down or kill them.
But I have never been in the position of maybe having to, for survival.
Blessings to the deer. To me they are of grace and wildness.

that's a funny story! Where I live the white tailed deer are plentiful. Winter's here are harsh and if over populated many often die of starvation during the winter months. There's a sickness many deer can get too if over populated. It's called cwd. Its a parsite that eats there brains. Hunting is just a way to manage the population and keep them healthy. Responsible hunters never waste and are very thankful of the meat it provides for there families.

Thanks.......hopefully it will be not one less but several less!

We hunt to fill our freezers for the year for several households and donations to the state " Hunters for the hungry" program benefiting homeless shelters.

Considering the growing deer populations. .....our particular county allows up to 5 deer per hunter......three does and up to two bucks.

Human beings are not designed to be vegans....we are omnivorous and a hunting species by way of 250, 000 years of genetic heritage.

And eating our own flesh??? That sounds like closed circuit nutrition and a losing bet to me!
