It seems like it has been FOREVER since I was able to blog about our hunting. I don’t think I have shot my gun in almost 10 months.
This weekend, after the FL/GA game, we packed up for a fast and furious trip to the Hun-Tin House. We arrived just after 12:30am, only to rise and shine at 5:30am .
I hunted by myself that morning. Although I didn’t shoot anything, here is what I saw:
- 5 does
- a 4 point
- a spike
- a 8 point
None of those were the trophy bucks I was looking to score, so I enjoyed watching them play. Emmy really enjoyed her first hunting trip too. She isn’t the most active in the mornings, but she was rolling around like nobody’s business. I think she was probably grateful her mommy had a somewhat relaxing morning for a change:)
After lunch, we decided to shoot our guns, just to make sure they were good. I am proud to say that I hit 1” directly above the bulls eye at 100 yards on my first shot. Yep…..mine was good:)
I took a nap, and we got ready to go out again.
Rob and I hunted together, and had a really great time just spending some alone time. Although our entire conversation for 3 1/2 hours was at whisper-level, it was good.
Can you tell how tired we are? We look like death warmed over, but we had a great time. Again, we didn’t shoot anything (no trophies), but here is what we saw:
- 8 does
- 2 spikes
- a 6 point
- a 7 point
- a HUGE boar hog
- a 4 point
If I wasn’t so close to meeting sweet Emmy, I might would have to go back next weekend. However, I think we better stay close to home just in case.
