Still Preparing for My Missouri Hunting Excursion
Still preparing for my Missouri Hunting Excursion…the days are growing slim, and I am probably far behind you more educated hunters. Hats off to you all and please have a good laugh at my expense!
Today, I had success I bought a HAT. I know I am silly, but I am not a “hat person”, so finding a hat that was comfortable was an issue. I have my blaze orange hunting hat and my blaze orange vest, the vest came with a few laughs of its own. I was wondering around the hunting section today when the kind worker asked me if she could help me, I asked where I could find a hunting vest. I must have thrown her off, she looked at me said “Honey, we are all out of youth vest” SCORE, I always wanted to return to my youth, but really I do not look 13.
Poor Gibson the Guide, since I am so new to this hunting thing I have to ask him almost everything…he is so patient with me. Today we discussed what supplies are needed for deer hunting. He has assured me that he bought plenty of Scent Away, so my smelly perfume will not scare away the deer….glad he was thinking ahead, but really, I promise to leave my smelly perfume at home.
Snacks, I was informed today we are not going on a picnic….I have been greatly fooled over the past 20 some years (I am not telling you all my age) I thought the grand supply of snicker bars, chips, and beef jerky that the hunters bought was for their hunting trip. Guess not, we will be eating light, walking a lot, and carrying our bags of supplies. I had better rest up now, or fire my fitness trainer and hire Gibson the Guide for my new fitness program.
Now to GREATLY disappoint all of you soon to be fellow hunters, I will NOT be hunting opening weekend of deer season. I know, I know I am sad disappointment, but as you, all will be hunting for that big kill I will be cheering on the CUTEST cheerleader in Missouri. GO ROCKETS! So, please do not kill all the deer in Missouri, because I do really want to have my chance to have a GOOD hunt!
In the mean time, I am reading up on my safety tips with this great article on the River Hills Traveler’s website.
Have a Great Hunt; I will see you in the woods soon!
