Welcome to Wild, Wonderful West Virgina

Subject:

Deer season in WV started Monday of this week, while Betsy and me were holed up in Hooker Central. Naturally, with so much testosterone in the air, there was a whole lot of hooting and hollering out in the parking lot around 4:00 AM whilst we were trying to catch some Z's. Betsy quickly called the front desk and the clerk promised, from behind an inch of bulletproof glass, to "tell them to shut the hell up." Whether they did or not I can't say.

Over the last week I've seen more truckloads of ATV's and RealTree camo than I'd ever seen before. And on the way down the ridge atop which Betsy's mom lives, we spotted this guy toting home his trophy.
