Slow start

Postby jarbo03 » Fri Dec 01, 2017 12:57 am

Been a slow start to the season, seems an infant in the house has that effect. Taz and I have got out a few times including a trip to MT. Weather dropped to 0° and ran off the ducks, thankfully we found some pheasant, and a porcupine. Started with chickens and dove in Sept, now ready for waterfowl to hit full swing.

A slow start is better than a no start. Great pics. Like that Taz dog.

Your "Slow Start" is a relative term. Great photos as usual.

Looks like a good time. Looks like your dog is having as good time of it too. Except for the porcupine! I despise those rascals.
Good work and pictures. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks guys. No complaining, but definitely behind normal. Good front coming next week, should kick off some good waterfowling. Getting this guy out of the way will help also, Taz hates when I go deer hunting.

That's a nice whitetail... looks like he's making funny faces for the camera though. ;-)

He was being goofy for sure. This is the one I was after, but I don't have time to wait for him, ready to get back chasing birds.

Deer and elk hunting is just a minor setback to the real deal... wingshooting... takes a lot of birds to put meat in the freezer... only one or two fur critters though. Had Idaho black bear bratwurst for dinner tonight... Jambalaya tomorrow.

We received a good push of Canadas this week, with a 6 bird limit it doesn't take long to fill the freezers! I make brats with goose and deer, never had them with bear though. Only had a few roasts and they were good.

I use deer for roast and steaks, prefer goose for sausage, ring bologna, and jerky.
