Well, I did something today that I had never set out to do in my life. You know the list and goals and dreams that you pllan out for yourself. I am big on those type of goals. I planned medical school, I made a list of things I wanted a guy to have or do before I would date him, and yes I make daily to do list. Never once on any of these did I have, go squirrel hunting with your spouse and 3 kids.
But that is what we did today after church and my birthday lunch with family. I had a ball. Now I am relooking at going and trying my hand at deer hunting. I think I would like pheasant or duck hunting too. (I like to shoot a shotgun, but can handle a pistol, riffle, or shotgun as the time requires.)
I don’t relish hunting just to kill an animal. Normally, my hubby eats the game, but I will have to learn how to cook them first. Normally, his Paternal Grandmother fries them up for him. But todays kills went to a good cause even if it was not for our dinner, I was helping Brian train a new squirrel dog. She loved the squirrel.
I have always worked with guns and can shoot pretty well, So, I will be watching myself with interest as I embark on my education in hunting. Anyone who has read this blog knows how well my first deer trip with Brian went. But, I have grown since that ill fated trip as a Mom and a Wife and as a Women interested in new adventures in her own rite.
I have always respected hunters, farmers, and ranchers, but the more I grown and learning in this wonderful world my husband has shown me the more I love spreading my wings.
I’ll try to get a picture next time. And I am very interested to hear from other female hunters how they have bulked up enough in their upper arms to be able to shoot a riffle (yes, I realize that a 22 is a light riffle) freestanding after walking up and down those hills and hollers.
Would appreciate any ideas….
