I am ready for whitetail hunting season to start here at Harpole’s Heartland Lodge! I took advantage of the holiday weekend to see how the deer herd was doing, and let me tell you, it’s doing very well. I spent a lot of time in the truck and on the 4 wheeler scouting and spotting. As always, the abundance of deer around here is amazing, and I got the opportunity to spot some very nice bucks. One of them was a very nice 10 point that almost ended up under my truck at 2pm in the afternoon, but don’t worry, he’s fine and still running around out there growing bigger each day. But let me tell you, it sure was hot. So hot, I had to take a dip in a lake in that midday heat. But that didn’t stop my deer watching. The deer just came down to the water’s edge to drink while I was in the water. Man it’s crazy around here some days! I can’t wait to see that 10 point & all of you again hanging around at Heartland Lodge later this fall. If you have any interest in paying us a visit, let me know & I will be happy to arrange a trip of a lifetime for you. And maybe just maybe that 10 point will end up on your wall!
