High Jump!

In late October, my dad took me out hunting with him. I was so happy because I love going out in the woods with him. Just enjoying nature and smelling the fresh air and seeing what’s around me! I had my own stand almost directly across from my dads tree, but one of the best parts of sitting up there was that when I looked down there were beautiful purple flowers and they looked like they were glistening when the sun hit them. I just couldn’t resist, I had to take a picture of them with my camera.
Then a little while after that, 2 doe came running in from the swamp, and I watched them, and they came across a log and they jumped it. I didn’t know that deer could jump that high. I was really excited because the older doe was huge!!!!!!! Then I realized that it was doe with her older fawn. The fawn didn’t have her spots, but I could tell that she was quite young. The older doe looked around and came back to her fawn and then they bounded out of our sight.
Later on when the sun was setting I was playing my Nintendo DS Lite. I didn’t realize that my dad was trying to get my attention, it took him a couple of times of whistling before he got my attention. So I looked up and there were 10-15 turkeys just casually walking through the woods. I thought wow! So I got out my camera and tried to take a picture, but something spooked them and they ran off.
So I never got a picture of those turkeys, but I sure had a great experience, but that’s no surprise, I always have good experiences when I go out in the woods with my dad!
