Georgia Deere Season

Chuck Zimmerman

That’s not a typo. For members of the Crystal Pig Hunt Club it is Deer and Deere season. Opening day was this past Saturday and there is deer meat in camp. The weather has been almost perfect. Last year was not since it rained hard all of opening day and then things were a mess.

So, we’re test driving a new John Deere Gator XUV855M, diesel. It has been a joy to drive to do maintenance on feeders, fill them, get to stands and get our deer back to camp. We have some steep and narrow trails so being able to just push 4-wheel drive and go is simple. During the season I’ll have some more detailed analysis of what we like or might not like. For now though we’re off to a good start with all members going home with meat in the cooler. I’ll have plenty of field photos and some video too.

Hunting, John Deere
