What's a "bug buck," Mother-Hubbard? I'm a city boy.
very good, Pen. this explains why my husband is not a great hunger. The only prep work he does is gets the permit. He's taking the kids tomorrow, or one lucky kid anyway. I'm hoping he's lucky. But I'm not holding my breath. A couple of years ago we had a nice bug buck in the back yard just running back and forth. I about fell all over myself trying to get a hold of a gun and all I could find was a pistol. I figured it would have to do and I'm a good shot and it wasn't very far off, maybe 15 yrads. But by the time I got back to the door he was heading over the back hill. I have a rifle hooked above the door to the laundry room now. but, suprise, he hasn't been back.
Thank you, one and all! And Muse, the danged crows even disturb those of us who hunt for venison and could care less about a trophy, namely me. The only deer I ever managed to get was a doe, and I spent only 45 minutes from the time I left my car to the time I checked my deer with the game warden and go back home!
You've been one of my favorite people on the LitNet since I first signed on!
Another good one! Loved the refrain "And
do you mind if I reel in this fish" and thanks for the plug for Al Jaffe, which you've probably guessed, was one of my
heroes when I was growing up, way, way, way back in the day.
This was great fun to read! I loved the
colloquial diction, the "local" quality to the subject matter, and the Cheney joke.
I want to read some more o' your blogs
There was a quote that a guy at work uttered after a similar story from a hunter about a buck in heat during hunting season. It has always stuck with me. He said, "It's amazing what a buck will do for a piece of a$$." There's something to be said for human bucks as well.
Nice story Pen.
Despite not being a trophy hunter, this was a magnificent entry Pendragon! The only year I applied for a deer tag, I missed out on a beautiful 6 point muley, but the little 2 point I took tasted like cornfed whitetail. I'm rather glad, because the last trophy animal I ate tasted like a boot.
Greatly enjoyed this entry! And pah to the crows!
I say good for the crows. I detest sport hunting. It is vile to gain in pleasure out of taking the life of another living creature just to walk home with a "trophy"
This entry was delightful. I have a co-worker who is very into hunting each deer season. He would be delighted by this.
All I can say is that I'm really, really, really glad that you're alive
Pen, just finally got around to checking this out--I have been very remiss on blogs lately. Hang in there--God has plans for the two of us and the joy is that is rarely what we think they will be but infinitely better.
... wow... wow is all I can say. I have been in a similar situation myself, and it is enraging. Nothing can make a day go downhill more than public humiliation, especially after a bad day already! Sorry to hear that, Pen!
It's amazing how ridiculous people can be, it's quite apalling.
I hope that your next day went better
Pen, I know it was a hard day, but from your posts and blogs and writings here on lit net, you seem to be improving as best as I can tell. You are in my prayers, if that makes you feel any better.
I recently came to know about your traumatic experience that you had faced in the near past. I am really sorry to hear that and I can imagine how distressing it had been for you while dealing with those situations. Please take care. My kind prayers goes to you and your family. I am so relieved to hear that you are getting better with the help of new doctors and your family members and many of your loving friends must also be feeling quite relieved after seeing you getting better. May the almighty god give you strength, support, and love! ~ Dibyendra
Yikes, you're not kidding, that is a bad day. Still, you got through it and that's something positive to take away. And it sounds like you've got your head screwed on a whole lot better than most of the people you encountered that day. I guess sometimes honesty isn't the best policy. How messed up that sounds.
Hope things get better Pen. Goodness knows you deserve it.
Maybe they held the wrong person in jail. First the cop tells you "you don't have to wear a seat belt", funny I to thought that was the law and second, one of them tells you
to smoke some marijuana since you are so wound up!!!!
I'm sorry to hear that you had to go thru all of this but try to think of it from another perspective. At least people care enough about you to make sure you don't do anything to hurt yourself.
Hope the coming days are better for you.
Saying that they didn't handle it well is something of an understatement. I'm glad your handling it well!
Was the next day better, I hope?
