Another opening weekend of pheasant season has come and gone and it was a pretty good one overall.
Saturday morning started with a little work on the deer stand to get it prepared for the upcoming season. Not much work was needed except for cleaning out a bit of raccoon poop and putting a few loose boards back in place. It should be all set now I will just need the deer to show up at the right time and place.
After deer stand repairs were made it was onto BB gun training and practice. I gave Mr. T. and Ms. K. safety instructions and showed them the proper way to aim and hold their weapons. I set up some clay pigeons on a couple of cans for them to shoot at and they happily shot and shot and shot some more. I have no idea how many rounds they went through but I know the lead content on my parents yard has gone up drastically. Ms. K. even commented how sore her shoulder was at the end of the day due to the recoil of the BB gun. She is a bit of a drama queen.
We set out at noon on Saturday with our unique hunting party. The only two toting guns were me and my Dad. The Mrs. and Mr. T. came along and did a LOT of walking. My Mom and Ms. K. took care of the driving, Ms. K. made the comment that her job was to keep the driver happy so she couldn't be bothered with walking. With only two guns and a brisk wind the pheasants had the clear advantage but we managed to bag our limit by 4:30 Saturday afternoon.
Sunday greeted us with a nicer day and the advantage switched from the pheasants to the hunters and we quickly reach our daily limit by 1:45 Sunday afternoon.
It was a fun weekend and even though no bike riding was done and I got a pretty good workout (especially Sat) walking though the fields. I will try to post some pictures from the weekend in the next day or so.
