This year, I’m doing something different.
Something I’ve not been able to do before in Canada.
Hunt with a handgun.
Well, I’ve wasted enough daylight writing this. Time for a challenge.
When you’re hunting? Remember the rules:
MUZZLE – safe direction
ACTION – open and unloaded until ready to shoot
TARGET – Know your target and what is beyond
TRIGGER – Finger off the trigger until ready to shoot
MATT‘s your buddy when you’re out participating in hunting as a cultural heritage activity.
Day One – Nothing. Did see a nice buck on the way home from town. It was after dark though…
Day Two – Truck in shop. AAAARGH!!! Clutch slave. Grrrrrrrr.
Day Three – Nice 50F day walk in the woods. It’s easier going through the bush when I can use two hands to push branches and not worry about snagging my rifle. Saw three does on my way back from town. After dark again. This is starting to remind of the 4 years I spent in Western Canada trying to bag the buck that used to feed in my yard and magically disappeared come hunting season.
Day Four – Personal Admin day. Did pass some houses that showed signs of some other guys in the area being successful in their hunt.
