All About Family, Outdoor Experiences and Nature

“In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous.” -
Aristotle.

I am currently out in the field participating in Nebraska’s firearm deer hunting season which runs through this Sunday, November 23rd. It was great to hunt with my brother Steve and also my cousin Mark this past weekend. I keep telling you that firearm deer hunting for me is all about enjoying family, outdoor experiences and nature. Here are some photos I took that reflect those things. If you are firearm deer hunting, I hope your season has been enjoyable and filled with many memories, no matter how cold it’s been!
