  1. I to am a civil war enthusiast as well as a avid whitetail deer hunter. I have been on the Gettysburg battlefield and seen quite a bit of deer. They can do a lot of damage while browsing.

    I invite you to visit my blog which covers topics such whitetail deer hunting, black powder shooting and the civil war.
