Bad weather were having... yup....


A quick trip to grab the deer cam...

In my neck of the woods as with almost any conversation in America, the weather is the backbone of many conversations. Whether it be the introduction, an insertion, or an act of closure, our daily and seasonal changes in temperature, precipitation, and wind connect us all. Today for me is no different, the weather we have been having has been nothing short of good (please insert sarcasm)...

You hope for a good weekend, especially a Saturday (no Sunday hunting, but fishing is permitted) but my weatherman has consistently brought crappy news. So, with all the cold, bitter winds, and ample snow, I've conceded any future duck hunting with future hopes of ice fishing...

However, there became one positive note since my last post. Enough snow held after our last storm followed by a surprising day of sunshine and moderate temperatures to warrant a day of sledding. My wife and I took the munchkins, 4 & 2, to a hill for some gravitational excitement. Two hours later, the rosy cheeked beauties informed me that they were “tired, hungry, and ready to go home”.

I'm a die hard duck hunter, but if I could repeat that two hours every Saturday... I'd have to leave the gun in the case...

Look for my interview by Terry Scoville of Women's Hunting Journal next week!!!

Take care,

The Downeast Duck Hunter
