Freezer Filling Time Again.

With deer season starting up here in Tennessee in just a month from now hunters everywhere are running around preparing for another great year of filling their freezers. Deer are plentiful this year which means hunters shouldn't have any problem filling their tags not to mention other wild game such as dove, squirrel, turkey, hogs, ducks and geese. Though I've had a tradgic year starting out this year my plans are still to fill my freezers with wild game. With the season just a month away it,s time to make final preparations for opening day. I have a couple of stands to put up and a blind to move then Ill be pretty well ready and set to begin my season with my bow. Later during bow season I'll be checking my provisions for muzzleloader season and of couarse making sure its sighted in properly. I've heard shots around the community of other hunters sighting in their guns so I know I'm not the only hunter getting excited about the upcoming seasons. Many of you out there are probably doing the same thing or have already prepared everything ahead of schedule. Right now I just like to wish everyone a safe, enjoyable and bountiful hunting year this year. Good hunting and GOD BLESS you all.

Tradgic year 2012

I have finally brought myself back to where my fun and joy was lost since what looks like over a year ago. I have returned to my blogs to try to get a grip on my life again and to update everyone of my fellow bloggers as to what ever happen to David Voyles aka Deerslayer. First off I'd like to apologize to each and everyone of the followers and the readers of my post for not at least making an attempt to post something on my sites just to let everyone know I'm still alive and at least halfway kicking.Its been a long and very hard struggle for me this past year or so with all my family illnesses and tragedies. In no certain order-- my wifes bi-polar health took a turn for the worst and she has been in and out of the hospitals with that then my dad had surgery on his prostate and was down for a week or so , one of my brothers had a blood disorder which threatened his life and the topping on the cake for me was the passing of my mom in april this year. All in all the domino effect mounted a massive stress factor on me and was causing my health to falter. Through support from my daughters and their family members I was able to hold on to abit of reality and pass GOD's test for the time being. Though my mom passed away in April I still havent let go of her and broke down nor have I been back to the cemetry since her funeral. Only through the grace of GOD and my closest friends and family was I able to handle caring for my mom just before she passed away and during her funeral. I'm now left with caring for my wife and my dad and the 7 members of my family living in our home. At this time I have so many things going on at home and at my work that I cant seem to have enough time to do much of anything for myself but I am going to try to get back to posting on my blogs again starting with this update. I see blogger has done alot of changes to our sites now too so this may take some going through before I get the hang of things again but I guess it to will pass with time. I'm hoping to be able to get out and do some hunting and fishing this fall but only time will tell that story as the remainder of the year unfolds.
