the Kid is still a little hesitant to pick up even her air rifle and go plinking, but she does enjoy going shooting with me as long as she is in control of the clays on the skeet range. She is more patient these days so I think we can actually spend a day in the marsh rather than a couple of hours. She loves the boat rides up and down the creek. Hopefully there will be enough water to keep the outboard fed throughout the season and I can keep getting out until freeze up.
nice job on the bull.
During the holiday weekend the Kid and I went south to the Russian and ended up seeing the biggest bull either of us have ever seen in the wild. It came out and walked in the river until it found all the flyfishermen. Here is an "artsy" photo of him running back down stream. It is artsy because I had the camera on the wrong setting and the shutter speed was too slow.
It looks not so big but it has 4 brow tines on each side and is just over 60 inches based on the 10 inches between the antler bases rule of thumb. I have more blurry shots, but here is a nice one of his hind end right before he found the trout fishermen.
