Deer stay away from hunting party

By Bill Bartusek

My friend, Jeff Rathman-ner, who owns a cabin near ours, had not shot a deer in two seasons. So I decided he could come and hunt the muzzleloader season with me.

I know a lot of landowners and felt I could get permission to hunt. My first surprise was that there were quite a few people hunting. So many of places I thought I could hunt were already spoken for.

So I decided we'd hunt the farm. We met early Friday and headed to the farm and sat through the first night without seeing anything.
