Tracking snow

Deer season has started in our area and hunters like my Dad always loved tracking snow as they called it. It’s easier to hunt and kill deer when there is a cover of the white stuff. I live adjacent to a wooded area and just last week as I returned home I saw three deer crossing our street and moving into that wooded area. I hope they are safe now, but probably not as the deer hunters comb the nearby woods looking for animals to kill.

I’ve only hunted deer a few times in my life. My last hunting trip was in November of 1982. I find no pleasure in killing deer. I’ve collided with many deer in my car. The last collision occurred on Good Friday nearly five years ago when a deer intersected my path on New York State Route 242 in the Town of Ellicottville. That deer cost me a $250 deductible on my insurance coverage. Despite that I still love them more than not. They are such graceful creatures and move about like the Ruach.
