A couple of days ago hubby and I grabbed our hunting rifles and headed to the shooting range to sight them in. I am READY. My first and only two shots with my little Walmart Remington 243 were smack dab in the middle of the bull's eye. Now if I can just hold steady if I get the chance to get a deer or hog in my sights!
Hubby, on the other hand, had to sight in both his Remington 12 gauge slug gun and Remington 760 Game Master 30-06. That took a little while, but we are both ready now. Rifle season starts THIS Saturday!
Today on the last day to hunt does during archery season I actually saw a large buck but it ambled off before I had a chance to make sure its antlers were legal. I learned that I should have done a "grunt" to make him stop. Maybe he will amble back so I can introduce him to my 243. He was about 50 yards away anyway, a tough shot for an inexperienced bow hunter like myself!
Here is a shot from my stand in our hunting area, a mere few acres belonging to my brother and sister-in-law but RICH with wildlife. It was so beautiful this morning with the still almost full moon shining like a headlight and then the leaves falling after daylight when a breeze stirred the trees.
Hubby and I stayed in our stands for a good 4 1/2 hours, which is my bladder's limit, before grabbing some lunch, changing clothes and heading out to Canton for First Monday Trade Days. I just HAD to visit my fave shop, Girls Gone Junkin'! I got a cute little heart-shaped steampunk pendant to wear with my wedding outfit next weekend and a darling little wedding cake topper with bride and groom dolls whose eyes move! For some reason I have started collecting vintage cake toppers. They are just too adorable! Why am I collecting again while trying to declutter? I'm hopeless, I suppose. . .
|So steampunky! LOVE!|
|Cutest wedding cake topper EVER!|
And then there was this sight: Have you ever seen so many cow skulls? Kind of creepy. . .
It was a long, hot day (yes, in NOVEMBER!) but it was a fun day. Maybe November will soon realize it isn't September and turn cooler! How about a little cooler next Saturday? But no rain, please! I'm not picky, huh? Happy junkin' and huntin', everybody!
