"I can't teach him. The boy has no patience."

I know this is the 4th time in a row ive talked about hunting but that is what this time of year is for me. i heard that my dad friend owns a 800 acre spread on the north side of not telling you where it is, its my new spot, you cant have it(some of the best deer hunting land in the world). so i asked my dad to talk to him about me hunting there. that was last thursday. its been almost a whole week. i cant stand it. something i did not even know existed a week ago and now i am busting at the seems to know if i can use it. IT'S KILLING ME! i called my dad like 3 times yesterday and no news. i keep trying to have other excuses to call him so i can disguise what i really want. im as bad as a little kid. tell me now, tell me now, tell me now.

it wasnt ment to be

i went to bed last night with the intention of getting up to go hunting. set my alarm and every thing. i use the alarm on my cell phone. the problem comes in where my company server sends me a email every morning that has my work schedule. it vibrates a couple times. for some reason it does it about 10-30 min before my alarm goes off. it wakes me up and i tell my self "oh, its just the e-mail." and i go back to sleep. well i herd the e-mail this morning but i set the alarm to week days only and for got to change that setting, so did not get up until the kids got up and turned the tv. oh well, i did not have time to be a successful hunter to day.

Male Bonding?

i think it was liz who made the comment "hurrah for male bonding!" in reference to my last blog. i could check but I'm to lazy and tired. well to night i got home from work and knew i needed to go install the water heater in my basement but thought "no, i want to go hunting." so i told lydia to get some camo on and we went to the woods. so after a while i catch a glimpse of a deer walking towards us. i tell lydia and she starts straining to see. about that time the deer stops 15 FEET in front of us. i had already drew my bow back as the deer came to us, so was ready when it stopped. i let fly and heard the tell tell SMACK of the arrow striking home. the dear ran right at us for about 5 feet and then veered off and ran away. i exhaled and lydia said "holy crap! that scared me." we waited a few min and got up to start looking. with in 20 feet we picked up the trail but lost it about 40 yards away. so i went home and got my dog. dogs are great. she picked up the trail and 10 min later i found my deer. once i got it home, lydia went to the hard ware store and helped me install the water heater. not exactly male bonding but a memory neither of us will ever forget.

The Mighty Hunters

last night i took mark hunting with me. it was kind of funny. the jacket he had on was mine and so way to big. he ended up pulling it over his head and hunkered down inside the tiny tent it made for him. he also ended up playing the game on my cell phone. it was the only way i could get him to stay still. he did real good at first but 2.5 hours sitting still and quiet is a lot to ask of a 6 year old. i saw 5 deer and he saw 0. i would have shot one but my peep sight(a small thing you look through to narrow your field of vision) got turned around and i could not see right. oh well, had a good time with him any way.

well at least i tried

last night i offered to help renae clean the kitchen. i was washing the table and the counter tops and was going to do the floors but i have been having some trouble with arthritis so did not want to bend to do it. she asked if i would go ahead and sweep so i did. as i was finishing up i noticed these little red dots all over the floor. i had stepped on a piece of glass and did not know it. i was trailing blood across the room. so sense i could not bend down to clean it my self i left a whole new mess for renae. sorry. btw there is still a little chunk of glass embedded in the big toe on my left foot.
