    Well I tagged out with the muzzleloader on Saturday evening. My first ever deer..... My wife talked me into getting a shoulder mount, since i may not ever get one that large again, and im ok with that!

    I took it Saturday evening at about 4:35, on some land my brother in law has about 20 minutes from my house. It was an amazing experience after all these years and all the time put in. Now i just have to figure out where the shoulder mount is going to go... I voted for above the stairs, and my wife voted for the garage..... We may have to compromise and ill have to put it in my room with all my hunting stuff. It would be a shame not to have it on display where everyone can see it though. At least I have 6 months or so to decide while the mount is being done.

    Thanks!! The taxidermist guessed 4 or 5, but were not 100% sure.

    I picked it up on Saturday afternoon. I cant believe how much meat we got off that guy! I had them grind the scraps, and theres plenty of them, so we can drop it off to make summer sausage and brats and whatever else we want after we mix in the pork.

    We also had to decide where to keep all the meat. My wife wanted a chest freezer for the basement, but i opted for a heater in the garage instead, then we can use the fridge/freezer that are currently in the garage.

    So this will be going in this week. Its not ideal, but its supposed to be extremely efficient, and will keep the garage nice and toasty all winter, and it will give me a place to work on stuff, and defrost the 4 wheeler after plowing

    We installed the heater last weekend. Its on the far lowest setting, and its a comfy 52*F in there. A little warmer than id like it to be, but it will have to do.

    I also installed one of the ceiling fans that we took out of the house, and wired it to an outlet just to keep the air moving around.

    Nothing like a little warmth in the shop. I used to live where it got cold and hot. I had a heat pump in mine I got for free. A guy has to have a nice work environment

    Well weve been working on trim (when i say we, i mean my father in law lol). Its coming along nicely and should be done in the next day or so.

    Were also getting ready to cut a giant hole in the back wall in the spring, so that we can get the sliding door installed, and then start building the deck! Im pretty excited about that. That was one of the stipulations on buying this house was that we were going to put a sliding door and a deck in as soon as possible.

    Trim is not large compared to the rest of the house, but it sure makes stuff look better. I have some to install in my house too.

    I got to work on the yard a bit this weekend. Im sick of all the dirt, so I started to get it ready for seed. I hooked up the harrow drag and started to churn it up a bit. Its got a ways to go, but it looks better already!

    I also pulled out some small trees to clean it up a little. Next up will be a controlled burn on the tall grassy area. Were planning on making a small 12x12 or so garden, and growing grass on the rest. The previous owners used that as a garden, but i dont need a 100'x50' garden lol.

    Got some big stuff planned this weekend. Were going to demo the driveway and front sidewalk so that we can pour a new patio, take down a coule of giant trees, and were going to run power/gas/water to the shop. Should be in interesting weekend!

    We may also extend the driveway a bit, so there are more places to park/drive, and less lawn to mow lol

    less lawn to mow is always a bonus, more tool or 4wd time , Nice looking Deer you got

    Well with the help of my father in law and brother in law (Or I should say I helped them, lol) we did some damage last weekend. Got the lines ran to the shop, got one of the 2 big trees down, and demo'd the front patio to get it ready for some crushed concrete. Next on the list is getting the power and water actually hooked up in the shop, and then taking down the other huge tree in the front yard. Then we can go on to the new patio for the fire pit, and another 18ton load delivery of crushed concrete.



























    Oh and i got my deer back!!
