Awesome Opening Day in Caneadea
I had been looking forward to Opening Day all year. And it's not just about harvesting a deer. For me it's about hanging out with some great friends, telling jokes and stories, cooking and eating some delicious food, having a beer and relaxing out in the country. It's quality time with the people you care about.
Not everyone in our camp got a deer on Saturday, but a few of us did. Joey Paglicci of Williamsville took an 8 pointer with his new 30.06 rifle. My son Tyler got a doe using a Browning 30.06 and I was able to harvest a 4 point buck using my Saiga .308. This was my first deer using the .308 and I think I will be sticking with this rifle for quite a while. The buck dropped in its tracks with one shot to the heart.
We had some more luck on Sunday as Mark Bennett of Williamsville got a 5 point buck out of my tree stand using his trusty .270 rifle. Mark also took a doe on Friday afternoon with his bow on the last day of archery season. So all in all, it was a wonderful opening weekend for our camp down in Caneadea in Allegany County.
