Da Baum Life Lately...

Summer and the fishing season are over and hunting season is in full swing.

Jeremy has been out chasing deer with his bow. So far he has shot three bucks, only one more to go. But he sure is working hard for that 4th buck. Seems like everywhere he goes there is too much human sign or there are no deer. The other day he hiked for 6 hours and didn’t see a single deer in a spot where usually the deer are pretty thick. Instead he found a lot of garbage and marker ribbons. Pretty discouraging, but God is faithful and he will provide when the time is right.

As for Kristi…well I have been really busy with school and church. If I am not at school then I am usually at home being a wife, out having coffee with a girlfriend, out hiking or at some church function.

Life in Ketchikan is so simplistic and wonderful!!!

About 2 weeks ago a nice buck was just outside my parents house wandering around the yard. We watched it fom the deck. Eventually it went across the road to the car dealership. He said "got anything for a buck?" ha ha ha. That was dumb. Anyway I was glad nobody wanted to shoot him. Would you be allowed to if it was in your yard?

I liked your joke, Caren.

Caren, I liked your joke too! It gave me a good laugh! And as for Jeremy's lack of deer to shoot, we should have invited him over to our island for some good hunting. The deer were definitely easier to locate earlier on in the season. Now we've got hip to waist deep snow in areas, which makes people travel difficult, but the deer are having a very tough go at it too. We saw a fresh kill in the back of someone's truck at the Coffman Cove junction yesterday. You probably don't want to hear all this, but, if it makes you want to try your luck and skill over here, you've got some nice, free lodging at our home! (That goes for any of our other Ketchikan friends too!)

P.S. (to my previous post of 30 seconds ago) - Happy Thanksgiving! We hope you have a great holiday together!

Caren you are soooo funny! No you couldn't shoot a buck on your parents property. It has to be a mile from any road. So Bucky is safe at your parents house!
