Whatta mean I can’t fish in heels???

Rabid Outdoorsman and I are now members of BOW (Becoming an Outdoor Woman) in Maine. Rabid has been to one meeting and I will be attending my first at the end of June. The plan was to meet at a local watering hole and discuss how we can bring our time and talent to this organization and make it rock. Originally there was going to be 3 of us in this “meeting” but it turned into just me and Rabid so he suggested I meet him and we go fishing. I was coming from work, in amazing heels and dress clothes. Rabid didn’t think pumps would be a good choice for fishing in April but I tried to convince him otherwise. However, like a good Maine girl, I had gum rubbers in my car. Game on!

I need to figure out how to have many more meetings like this!

Rabid was telling me about his fishing adventures with Duckhunter over the past week and how they were catching great fish. About 5 minutes after we pushed off from shore, Rabid had a small fish on his line. Too small, so he let it go. All I really wanted, was to take a fish home after going home empty handed when I went ice fishing.

A few minutes later and some conversation about how we can organizing a fundraising effort, Rabid hooked this guy. Dinner! After a couple hours on the pond, some great conversation about common friends, the outdoors and how we can get more women involved, we brought the fish back to the house. Even better, Rabid fileted it for me. Amazing! But, now that I have seen it done, I know next time it is up to me.

At the end of the night, this is what my backseat looked like: deer antlers so I can finally clean them up, my amazing shoes that I did not wear fishing and some delish beer. Classy Maine girl!!!

Welcome back friends

I convinced Dad to put the trail camera back out at the Sky Condo to see what deer are around and made it through the winter... and it was like seeing old friends. Five healthy looking deer! Last year's fawns look good as yearlings If you zoom in, you can see antlers...

So much for respectable stand placement

Dad has hunted on the land that houses the Sky Condo for the better part of his life. About six years ago, we built the SC and started hunting there full time.   At that time, there were no other hunters near by.  A few years ago, a hunter bought a...

Doe sighting

There are three does around my parent's house.  One of them looks as though she doesnt have a tail OR that she has a solid white tail.  Over the past few weeks, she has disappeared, presumably to have a fawn.  I couldn't zoom in as much as I needed to,...
