COOL

My boy got the tape on the computer, don't know where.
 It is factory seconds.
Amazon has it.

It certainly could make life easier for many!

 O0 That's really something, D! I have never seen anything like that but always wondered about something like that. I certainly could have used it a number of times. Did you buy that locally or what?

We picked up 5000 feet of mule tape used .

Ever used it?

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00LEWIF1Y/ref=twister_B01MR4R3BT?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1

Neat stuff .

That is not quite a mile.

We had some snatch blocks we used on fence post to help guide the tape retrieval.

Hooked it to the trailer hitch and pulled in my deer with the truck and the game cart/sled.

It took longer to wind it back up on to the spool then to drag out the deer.

Note to self , have two walkie talkies for communication or run the whole way to keep up to the truck....

Duck Hunting / No explosion this time

We made it out to our swan place this time with out an explosion or fire.
Put out our swan decoys, moved a bit , put out the goose decoys, and the duck decoys went on the other side of our hidey hole.
We waited for about 35 minutes for shooting time and daylight.
This lake we are hunting is a distention mecca for goose/duck hunters across the north west.
There had to be 200 hunters hidden around the lake, shooting time and we herd one shot...
The big giant fly off feeding frenzy did not happen. We have had 3 days of 60 mph wind we thought the calm day forecasted would find the sky full of birds. NOPE not even many ducks changing among the ponds.
By 9:30 maybe 20 shots fired around the lakes odd indeed.
But things where looking up we could see birds in the air . A few pairs of ducks would swing by and check out the spread. Finally what we risked life and limb for , a string of about 10 swan and they where bee lining for our white trash bags. We hunkered down in the boat/duck blind and set motionless. The seconds felt like hours as the started to drop in to our set. An eternity past when the boy sprang up and hollered "Kill'm"
One, two three shots and then three more, On the last shell in my gun I connected and a big swan splashed down.
NO IDEA WHY we did not both get a swan. My son is an out standing shot gun shot. That he proved earlier this morning on ducks, but no swan, WOW. BUMMER!
We retrieved the big white bird and set there till 12:30 with out another shot. Picked up the deke's and went back. It is hard to complain with near a limit in ducks and a giant swan but it was slow hunting.

Not Normal but not uncommon.
Halloween can be our coldest day of the year.
75* to -30* take a guess...

For me?
Other then the last coyote trip I have not fired a shot at a deer/big game.
Going to do another swan trip latter this week .
 It sounds like we may "freeze up" very soon.

Winter freeze early this year?
