This weekend some of our city friends ventured out for their yearly visit. Last year’s visit is chronicled here
First, they went out for a walk to scope out the hunting site.
Set up and primed the site by laying corn and a couple of Hold-A-Hawg Snares.
Then we decided to put the boys to work, as our neighbor gave us a call to let us know his Boar was ready to come over for a visit. So they head out to collect a boyfriend for our ladies.
I stayed home and prepped the bacon for the morning’s breakfast.
While the boys headed out to sight in their rifles and test out the Primal Gear Compact Folding Survival Bow.
Once they were in for the night, they set up a bonfire and shot the sh*t.
Then one of the guys spotted a snake on the back porch. They attempted to grab it, to relocate it, but it got away and managed to hide under some clutter to regurgitate a chicken egg it had captured.
Then the boys grabbed it again by the tail. It proceeded to pee on them and slither away to freedom somewhere under our deck.
The Beekeeper warned me we might him in the house. Then he noticed the look on my face and tried to quickly back peddle that it was probably to big to get into the house because the others we found inside were much smaller.
The next morning, I sent them off with a fully belly. I made fresh beard.
And instilled in them the difference between store bought eggs and pasture raised chicken eggs.
Then they were off for a morning of hunting.
The early AM mosquitoes made breakfast of the Beekeeper.
They sent back an awkward selfie that immediately brought the stagecoach scene from Firefly to mind.
After several hours out, the only thing out and about was a bob cat which is somewhere in this picture.
The hunt ended up a bust but they were able to make a catch of two boars with one of our traps.
An enjoyable weekend was had by all!
