Frog's for Dinner 

Part of our annual deer hunting adventure is shooting frogs at the pond.  The pond has thousands of small frogs and hundreds of big frogs.  This year little C built up a new toy for the frog slaying.  We were told of a frog stalking trick, stay on the four wheeler.  That is how we got some pictures of the big ones.

We had a great time camping and hunting.  We saw elk, deer and a good size bear.  The bear was going 40 mph about 300 yards away and into the brush.  We saw him for just a quick second.  Later we did get to walk his trail and check out the tracks.

This year little C wanted to do the deer shooting all on his own, on my tag under the mentoring program.  He had several chances but had a hard time connecting.  Hunting is a little more exciting, compared to shooting cans!  As always we learned lots.


A Goat's Life - Somebody's Got to do It

This is Gibson, a striking little fellow but the fraidy-cat of the goat herd.  He reminds me of an African antelope.  I'd think he was wanting us to do some shooting from the bench, if I didn't know hit true nature.
