Duck Hunting Extravaganza or Dud

I recently started to duck hunt again after 15 years.......Wow has it been that long!!!!  Despite little success and really knowing what we were doing it was fun.    I am not sure why it is so fun.  Could it be just being outside or sitting in a blind with my buddies?   I am damn sure it was not shooting ducks.  I have yet to get a shot off.  Either way it was still fun.

Jeff in a Blind, but it looks more like he is ready to hit a 7-11

The first outing we walked and walked and saw little ducks.  The second outing we set up a blind and chased decoys all day.  Finally the last outing we had a blind but it was muddy and hard to walk out in the chest deep water to get to it.  We abandoned all hope of hunting that day.  Next year will be here and we will be prepared.

 All in all it was fun.  What next you ask?  Pheasant hunting and a good time shooting for all.

A weekend outing with my son

My son Paul II is getting older and starting to enjoy hunting more.  He recieved his first .22 a very nice Henry’s youth, and recently very nice 410 shot gun.

Paul II and I went out on his first camping shooting trip, we took out our Flintstone trailer.   This trip we accomplished two things.  First we got to do a trial run in Flintstone one (our little trailer), second PP II had a chance blast clays with his .410.   Both were fun activities.   

PP is getting to be such a good shot, he gets that from his mom :).  We shot a 5 station clay station.  At one of the 5 stations he took aim at a clay that was moving across the ground and bam took a large chunk out of it. 

There is no better feeling as a father than to see his son take pride and enjoy something that we enjoy together.  Next spring PP will get his hunting license and I can’t wait until I can take him into the field to hunt. My hope is his grades continue and he gets to attend the 2012 Deer hunt.   This will fulfill a life long dream.

Family Fun

 Family Fun

My boy is growing fast, and its amazing to see him transform into a man.  My wife and I are really enjoying introducing him to outdoor activities.  He is learning to shoot and to fish.  I can’t wait until he gets the time to hunt with me, and that tradition is passed down to the next generation.  This year will be the first hunt with him in but he won’t be hunting. 

The activities we have been doing have been mostly around the house, but I would like to take him deeper into the woods and wheeling with some buds.

I took my wife shooting and she never stops amazing me, she walked up and sighted in (first time shooting this .22) and blam hit the bull’s-eye right in the middle.   She is such a good shot, it scares me!!!
Here are some pictures of her shooting at the local yard.

I hope you enjoy our page, and the information about our family
