    Yep.
    My old man etc used to hunt it long ago. They got 27 deer in a day, all skinny and as small as goats. Was like walking a highway.

    Regardless that uphill to the Plateau always got me. My old man put me on his back one day. Still reminds me of that small fact. I remind him I was but a baby…still.
