1 week

1 week from tomorrow, I will be heading up the our hunting grounds to start the 2011 season. Yeah!
There are things I need to get done before the season starts.

1. Get sick. I have been mia the past couple of days because I have been really sick. CHECK
2. Get wool jacket out. Its hanging up in my room. CHECK
3. Get warm, non-cotton clothes out. CHECK (thank you fall camping)
4. Get hand/toe warmers. CHECK
5. Boots ready. All 2 pair. CHECK
6. Guns sighted in. CHECK and DOUBLE CHECK
7. License in hunting vest. CHECK
8. Squatter out of sky condo. CHECK (so says Dad)

I think that’s all I need, right? Now, I sit and wait and prep and check in with Dad to see what else is on the camera. I had been hoping that opening day would be on my birthday and since there is a leap year next year, I have YEARS to wait until that happens, so Mother Nature can bring me a post gift by having that 10 pointer walk in front of my cross hairs. HA!

The one who lived another year…

He may have won this year, but after Dad went scouting on the first few snow falls, we are pretty sure he is still out there.  Until next year...

Walk in the woods

While cutting some firewood, Dad, Hubby and I scoped out some of the land that we hunt on.  We were looking for tracks and maybe a sighting or two.  It was a great day for wildlife; I had seen a 4 or 6 point buck in velvet along the edge of the road that...

Weekend Adventures… and name that skull

It was a fantastic Maine spring weekend. A little chilly and windy Saturday morning, but the sun was out and we were outside. Fresh air and sunshine will cure what ails ya! We had a mini lawn sale in the morning, then in the afternoon, Hubby and I went on a adventure...
