Prep for week 2

What am I missing or need to do before I head into the woods? There was an article in the local paper about traditions and how the author gets up with his buddies, has a huge breakfast and coffee before heading out into the woods. I have cream of wheat or maypo, sip enough juice to get the vitamins down. Girls and guys? What about you? What’s your typical breakfast before heading out?

I also dress in SO many layers. This morning I found my running pants (Lycra maybe? spandex?) and my first thought was “perfect, they will fit under my fleece long johns that I wear under my wool pants”. Two layers of sock, snowmobile boots, foot warmers (like the ones you use when you go skiing). Under armor, non-cotton t-shirt, more fleece, more under armor, a down vest and my wool jacket. Layers baby! Gloves, hat and blaze orange light weight vest and I am ready to go and sit.

Tomorrow, I will be in my tree seat at 5:30. The temperature will be somewhere near 20. I will wait for the day light to break and hope a deer decides to walk past me. Wish me luck!

More Coyote stuff

As a funny follow up to Steve's blog about coyots, I was going through photos for my Dad's album (every year that we get a deer, I add more pictures) and found these. Dad found this deer last year when he was out walking around and I was in my seat. It was, as you can...

Sebago’s Salmon

We need choppy water Steve told me when we had first started fishing together last year. The breeze off of the lake wasnt as bad as we had thought but it was enough to get a little chop going and keep the temperatures cool.  We were the only ones at the boat...
