The weather did not cooperate for the last weekend of the last deer season. In Iowa, we have some sort of deer season from October through January. One would think, we would have had our fill of deer hunting from bow, shotgun, muzzleloader and finally rifle season. I find this not to be the case. I enjoy the hunt more than getting a deer and am almost always ready to go on another hunt. Saturday morning, rain was pouring down. At the end of January in Iowa, most anything can be falling out of the sky. This day, it was a cold and blowing rain.
