OK Uncle Mike - time to get busy with the catalogs while you're waiting for Sis to finish her upstream run. You need to be looking for the right..... fly rod, pellet gun, hip waders, you know, that kinda stuff. Of course Dad & Mom get the first 22, spinning rod, bow, etc. And just think, a potential new camp gofer as in "gofer another beer for Uncle & I'll show you how to hook a worm".
Hope things continue to go well for you and I know what you mean very well. My grandson will be two years old next month and I remember going through the whole labor with my daughter in the delivery room as the "father" bailed out when she was two months preganant and has never been heard from again. We were blessed and the delivery went perfect with no complications of any kind.
Two years later and the little guy is a terror and I can't wait to get out in the field with him. Just got his life jacket to be ready for the boat this summer. And yes he already has a little crickett .22 scoped up and waiting for him when he's old enough to get started.
Congratulations on a new family member and good luck for the great adventures to come.
Thanks guys. The new Mom, Dad, and baby are home now. Everyone is still doing well. It’s their first and the first grandchild on his side of the family so everyone was very nervous and appreciated my wife and I being there to reassure them that they were doing fine because we have been through it already. Their adventure is just beginning, but they will be just fine.
Man, I thought from the stand posts were good, but you're posting fromt he waiting room>???????
Congrats to you, and the parents Mike! Glad everyone came out of it nice and healthy!!!
Lol, yeah I wouldn’t post from a hunting stand, I’m on watch on the stand! I don’t understand my friends that read, etc. I’d be too afraid of missing game going by. Sometimes I barely see them even now. But in thye waiting room – UGH! I was bored stiff after a few hours and welcomed the distraction of a few minutes online!
When placing a trail camera don't just look for a well used trail. What you want to do is look for a freshly used trail off by itself that goes from a north facing ridge, thick forest, brushy knob or some other similar bedding area to a food source. Don't forget water sources. Especially in the summer months the deer need water so look for a good trail going down too a creek surrounded by thick cover and place the camera 100 yards up from the water source.
Scent control is very important...
