Solid Miles and Deer Hunting

Solid miles- got in just at 100 miles on the mountain bike for the week. Some of that was spent commuting, but it was still a 100 mile week on the mtb. Had a solid ride at Lake Leatherwood today, my technical skills are coming back. I'm back on a 26" mountain bike after a brief venture into the 29er culture. I really do think(so far) that I prefer the regular size wheels, more on this subject as I get more time on the current rig.

It's opening weekend for deer hunting, needless to say I saw an unusually high number of deer as I made my way to the trail. Some seemed in a huge hurry, like they had been shot at, others seemed like all was well. Like this one I saw at the very end of my ride today, I popped out into a field to see this big doe. We sat there staring at each other for about five minutes. I snapped a few pics and if I would have had a gun it would have been no problem bagging this deer. Deer(especially does) are overpopulated in NWA, I could use some extra protein in the freezer, good reasons for me to get my hunting license. I'll probablyly need to purchase a gun as well.

New Trail

I finally got to ride the new trail, I am impressed, it's technical, in town, and the views are outstanding. A few pics:

Taking a short break from studying for the RCIS which I take this upcoming Monday. Training has been low this past week, to bad for me as temps have been outstanding here in NWA. Riding to work and a couple of runs is all I have managed for this week.
Besides work, my days are consumed with making and studying these

I did get a mountain bike, it's a work in progress
