Da Evil Deer

- It all started on the opening day of deer season. The beautiful day was just cold enough to want a jacket but, but hot enough to where if one was worn you’d sweat to death.

Year after year I watched as the men in my family would go out to camp to chase bear or hunt deer. Each time I hoped they wouldn’t get anything. I am arguing against hunting.
