    Between being a taxidermist and family life I think my hunting days are be behind me for a while.



    I'm sorry, Nick, but this was put to a vote at the last super-secret hunting council meeting, held in the dark of night in a place where nobody can ever find us, 'cuz we're so secret, and...


    You have to keep squeezing in the time to get out and free your mind as you pursue upland birds.

    Council says so. Life goes by too quickly not to get out with a gun and a dog to savor the little bits and pieces of living.

    Apparently my shooting is worse than anticipated. I only have 10 shells left from the 4 boxes purchased. Just purchased another box tonight.

    Has your dog abandoned you yet?

    I'm thankful for the up-tick in members posting about their hunting experiences and photos. That helps numb the pain. Thanks guys

    Life's too short, Dude! Get back out there! There's plenty of time after the season for the other stuff. [That was said tongue in cheek]

    My sister was married the 15th of Sept [over 20 years ago] and when my dad heard of the date, he reminded her it was the opening of bird hunting, that he and her brothers weren't going to be happy at missing the opener. She replied that the only other date she could get the church and hall was the Saturday before Thanksgiving. Dad said if that was the day, she could count on he not walking her down the isle and her brothers not being in attendance, that it was better to have us not happy and there, instead of her unhappy and us not being there.

    There's priorities to set in life. We all make compromises. Some decisions are easier to make then others.

    A buddy recently retired. When he was still working, it drove him crazy when people tried planning family stuff on Saturdays during the hunting season. He told people "Don't f^c& with my Saturdays". I asked him how he liked retirement and he said "Every day's a Saturday".

    I've received the look but he keeps hunting. He's only 1.5 years old so he still has the energy to keep going. I'm afraid as he gets older I could be in trouble.

    Don't worry about it. There have been times in seasons when I had a hard time hitting the planet's atmosphere with a shotgun.

    Had an old friend who put $2 worth of quarters in his left pocket when he had a stretch of bad shooting. He knew it didn't do a thing, but it got to be a superstition with him. Invariably, his shooting gradually improved.
