There Is A LOT To Do Outside!
My outdoor life focuses on sharing adventures, as well as the gear I use when out hunting, fishing, gardening, kayaking, hiking and whatever else I feel like doing on any given day. I LOVE being outside so it doesn’t take much to get me to try anything new if it means I’m out of the house. Last year Mammaduke and I went on a treetop obstacle course and zip lining….but that ‘s a story for another day! Did I mention that I am no spring chicken?
At The Time
My current living situation consists of the Hubby, Manboy and I. For personal reasons I haven’t hunted much (just some bird hunting here and there) the past 10 years and it was a great time for the boys to spend time together and bond. Early on when the Hubby and I first met, we did a lot of hunting together. I had already started deer hunting “buck season” (I’ll explain more later on for those who need it) the year before we met, and since then took up bow hunting. I really should of paid a lot more attention than I did because 25+ years later, if I had to go buy my own arrows and broad heads (broad what?), I would be the the dork walking around picking up pretty colored arrows wondering if they would work OK.
When Your Kids Think They Are Smarter Than You
This would also be the time now, that my son thinks he knows more than me (which he does about some/a lot of things). He also thinks he has much more experience. My favorite Redneck just turned 21 in August, he has been hunting since age 12. So the math works out like this: Hunter #9 years hunting – Mom #20 years hunting, and yes that is even after deducting the past 10. So he can be a bit condescending, though I can’t help feel that being a “girl” has something to do with it…
“Why should we put up deer stands for you and you don’t have to help?” “I don’t know, I don’t wear your clothes before “I” wash them do I? and you don’t mind eating the food that “I” cooked…”
You get where I’m going with this argument right? But still, he does know a lot more about guns than I do. What? you want me to get MY gun from the cabinet? I’ll be back in a half hour after I figure out which one it is. The boys: 2 seconds. We’ll cover “shells” on a later date. And no, I am not talking by the seashore kind, nor am I talking about bullets.
Outdoor Life, Share the Adventure
EVERYBODY WELCOME! So if you’re a gal (guys always welcome too!) and your interested in doing some “guy” stuff (or just about anything outside?), or maybe you just want to understand the passion or language they speak, here’s the place to ask and learn, without any fear of looking like an idiot in the process. But then again, so what if you do?!!??? We can all laugh together!!!
