Hunting With My Son

I received a phone call yesterday afternoon around 3:00 from my son, Greg, if I would like to hunt with him Sunday morning at his camp, Brown's Point on Kings Point Island.  Of course, I told him I would love too.  Got all my hunting clothes on, some overnight things packed and Marian took me to the Kings Point Ferry at 7:00 where Greg came over on the ferry to meet me and take me back to camp.  So glad to see some of my old hunting buddies there and some new faces also.  We all sat down and had big bowl of venison stew.  It was delicious! Settled in upstairs in Greg's room and I looked forward to an early morning hunt.  Below are some pictures of our hunt together.

I slept on the bottom bunk!  Used my hunting jacket for a pillow.  

This morning on a deer hunt - I still look kinda sleepy!

In front of us...

Greg waiting for a deer to step out.

Greg did not think I would be able to get into his deer stand (No. 38) but showed him I could. 

Noticed the center limb sticking out - it looks like a dog's head - do you see it?

To the side of us...

In front of us...

Checking out the green field to the right of us.

Leaving stand No. 38.  Had a good morning hunt and only saw a few deer that were too far away for my son to shoot.  It's was great to be outdoors and enjoy nature and watching it wake up for another day!  Life is good!

Hunting South of Town

Marian and I were invited down to my step-granddaughter, Victoria, and her husband, Jamie's land south of town for an afternoon hunt.  Above is Jamie after he and Marian helped me get set up in my one-man stand.  I hunted overlooking a creek bed on the edge of the land but did not see anything.  It was nice to be in the woods and hunting again. 

Look down at the creek bed.

In front of me!

Marian took this picture of me in my one-man stand before she left to go hunting.

Today's Painting

A West Texas Town

Christmas Gift To My Wife

I painted this vase of cotton balls for my wife, Marian, at the Vicksburg Senior Center.  She really liked it and we plan to put it in a wooden frame.  I am very proud of it!
