    Never had this problem with HER before, either...………………. She's shot a doe and a buck with her .308 and it was quick and decisive. And with gobblers...…………………………… LORD, but she's RUTHLESS !!! I guess time will tell how the future deer hunts will go. And I did have my opportunities. I just wanted to share them all with her and it didn't work out that way. I've eaten tags before and it doesn't bother me. But, DANG it !!! I wanted some baloney !!!!!!!!

    This was RIGHT in line with why she didn't shoot the FIRST big meat mule that was in front of her. She was holding a buck tag and 3 doe tags. She had told me a few weeks ago "I'm only shooting a buck if it is 7 points or more". So, OK...…….she wants a bigger buck. Well, what I did NOT understand was that was the ONLY thing she was shooting...………...no doe !!! Aye, yi, YI...………..!!! Then I explained to her the thing about realistic expectations in late flintlock season and she agreed she'd shoot a doe next time. Well, last night with 5-10 minutes of season remaining, there's a big doe fawn 20 yards from us standing broadside. Momma was SLOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWWLY bringing up the rear and was NOT gonna present a shot in the daylight. She wouldn't shoot !!!! "I don't wanna shoot a baby !!" UGH !!!!!! I'd have pulled my hair out if I had enough to get a hold of !!!! There was 40 pounds of baloney in that deer !!!! I wanted deer baloney !!!! My gun was turned the wrong way with the deer being so close...……..nothing I could do but watch.

    Well, fellers...……………………. I'm throwing in my towel. Daughter got the flu at Christmas time and only got to hunt a couple hours 2 different days. Put deer in front of her both times, but she didn't shoot (oh, geez...……….don't ask...…). I spent a few days at it myself and actually COULD have filled all 4 of my tags in the first 1 1/2 days. I was just so bummed to not be hunting with my daughter, I didn't care to shoot anything. Sooooooo…………… I gotta work with my daughter on sound management/conservation -vs- emotion for next year and for myself, just hope we have a few decent survivor bucks still running the Strut10 Ranch to be targets this coming season.

    MERRY CHRISTMAS to the guys on TEAM 4 !!!! Tomorrow starts our flintlock season...……….. Have several days available to hunt. Gonna have my best huntin' buddy along as much as she will. I still oughta get a chance to add some baldy points to our total. Both daughter and I can shoot a buck and 3 doe. I won't shoot a buck unless it's something I'd have shot with my bow in November. Gonna tell her to shoot any buck she wants if one happens by...…………..

    Let's see the other RT trees !! Real or fake. Doesn't matter. Post 'em up.
  10. Here's my Pickle girl with our 2018 Christmas tree in the field. It's a 7-ish foot Grand Fir. Here's a rather lousy phone pic of it inside and up and lit. Decided to do just lights this year. Only ornament is the star on top. Our little guy made it in school.

    I finally did it

    That's a LITTLE better. Yep. I know a feller up there told me 10 or so years ago that to own a handgun you had to take a restricted course, belong to a shooting club, and submit a travel plan to the ministry EVERY time you went to shoot...……….when you intended to leave home...…….what your travel plan was to the club...……..how long you would be there...……….travel plan home...……...what time you expected to arrive home...……..and you had to go to the club and back home. No other stops. SHEESH !!!!!!!

    I finally did it

    CONGRATS !!! Those are few and far between in da Great White North...…….. Do you still have to file a travel plan with the gov't each time you go to the range with your handgun ??

    I'm thinking...

    Don't start unless you're prepared to deal with the lifelong affliction that goes with it...……...

    Trap shooting ( my new obsession)

    I started same as you...………...a 20 gauge SxS field gun. Got to liking it so much I bought a nice O/U sporting & trap gun. Shot quite a bit for a couple years. Now I'm getting in about one night every other year...……………...
