‘Tis the Season… (apparently)

I was out in the frosty yard this morning with Lady the Pitbull, for her to take care of her Lady business, when we heard a rash of gunfire from over the hill toward the nearby woods. Shortly thereafter, these whitetail deer appeared across the creek on the other side of the gravel road at the end of our hundred-yard long driveway. They milled about, looking uncertain what to do, long enough for me to go in the house and retrieve my Cannon DSLR and telephoto lens.

Later I was able to verify from the Iowa DNR site that today (December 5th) is the first day of the first Iowa “regular gun” deer season. I put regular gun in quotes because there are a lot of restrictions on what constitutes a regular gun and acceptable ammunition.

I think I had better luck with my camera than the mass-expenders-of-ammunition had in the woods over the hill.
