Mermaids, Colds, On-Call, and Gun Season...



Oh yeah, and squirrel hunting too. Man, what a busy couple of weeks we have working here in Central OH. Next week is Thanksgiving and I am on-call guy for the week. The week after is whitetail gun season. Four weeks after that is Christmas. Gonna be fun for a while. So how have things been lately? Let go over it.



A few weeks back was Halloween. We were beset by Mermaids here in Casa del Hunter. We walked for a couple of blocks and she decided she had shared enough of herself away from Mommy and back home we went. Have a look. She's my cutie....


This past week my good friend Ryland and I got out to slay the evil tree rats. It turns out neither one of us enjoy the hunting nearly as much as shooting the bull while we should have been quiet. I had a few shots but they were way too far off. I tried once but only managed to scare the little guy into running for his nest. We decided to bag it and head for the range to sight in the deer implements. Somehow I also managed to catch the 'Death Cold'. Gah, I hate these viral things....

I forgot how hard that damned 454 can kick. I finally got it put back together and two shots at a plastic bottle later it was sighted in... two perfect .452 inch holes in the label of the bottle.... Good day not to be a target I guess. Let me just say how impressed I am, one more time, with the cannon and can launch that 300 gr hollow point at the 1200+FPS that Encore can. It packs a wallop.


There's much more to talk about however my Father has advised that I should stop using the rifle and just pack my camera when I go out from now on. To that end, I've decided to publish some more of the previous trips pics. Take care everyone and we'll catch up soon after the deer thing ends.


And what is one of my posts without a gun pic or two to take us home.... :-)
