Scene in Highgate: Cash Crops, Bow Season

Dan wanted to show me where he had worked for a day in another farmer's field. You see, it's bad for farmers all over; corn has become currency for payment of debts. So are services like trucking, by the way.

It was bow season and deer were on the move on the back roads.

I know, I know, it was extremely foggy for photographs, but there is a doe and two yearlings in the center of that photo; you can just barely see the white flags from their tails.

The best "shot" of the day was this spike horn - which turned into a four-pointer after Dan started retelling the story. Curse auto focusing point-n-shoot cameras, he was clear as day in real life!
