Why is that deer dead?

Well the boys have witnessed the results of Daddy going hunting. Bloody carcass, skin peeling, cutting and chopping...this is not for the weak at heart. This morning Ben came home with an 8-point buck that he shot on our friend's property. He had it in the back of the truck (had already gutted it in the woods). Caleb, Cody, and Quinn all ran outside to see it. "Cool, look at his tongue hanging out!">Caleb "Yuck he's all bloody">Quinn "Why is that deer dead?">Cody






Ben then pulled it around back with his 4-wheeler and hung it from a tree to skin and do the slicing and dicing. Caleb and Quinn thought it was cool. They stayed outside and watched the whole time. After firing laser tag guns at it and killing it one more time.

Cody on the other hand, did not like it one bit. I think he is going to take after another nature lover in our family. He wanted to go back in the house as soon as he saw the deer go up in the tree. "Why did Daddy kill the deer?" "Why is Daddy going to chop that deer?" "I don't want to eat that deer." He sat and vegged to a movie on the couch, as the big boys watched the deer turn into hunks of meat in a cooler, while they played laser tag. Cody finally came out later, avoiding the dead zone. We raked up leaves into a huge pile and the boys took turns jumping in.

It's funny cause I thought Caleb was the more sensitive one. Well there's nothing wrong with another nature lover in the family! haha
