To everyone out there
MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!
Have a safe and enjoyable Time and hope Santa is good to each and every one of you!
And with that Christmas is just a few short weeks so I have come up with my 2009 UPNORTHJOURNAL wish list!
2) A new bow since my vintage "95" High country model has done well I just think I need to update and catch up with technology not sure which model. I would have to do some shooting to see what I would like best for me. Wanting to try the new Athens archery line of bows also and the Quest line of bows, I would have to add a new sight and accessories for sure to add on to the bow.
4) New set of camouflage pants and jacket in Mossy Oak tree stand or breakup.
5) I have heard good things about the Hunter Safety System so add one of those for when I am in the tree stand because you can never be too safe in a tree. I never used a HSS system but would love to try.
6) A great stocking stuffer would be a range finder as well never had one but sure would like to try one.
Thanks Santa sure hope I am on the nice list.
There you have it folks my UNJ wish list for Christmas!
Hey I can dream what about you what is on your wish list!
Second week Michigan deer season Update!
You know it is a great feeling when your daughters come up to you and ask can we go deer hunting!
Ummmmmmm let me think for a sec……. OK let's go
So Erica, Kelly and I packed up and we headed out sat afternoon for a few hours out in the woods,
Now the weather has been a factor all season long with the temps in the 50's sitting was not a problem but deer movement was
To be exact there was NONE at all, we did manage to see some squirrels which Erica says she will be back to take care of that after the season!
The Thanksgiving weekend was non productive as well we saw lots of cars at the public site where we were going to hunt and with so many hunters and not knowing where they are we opted not to go out and then the weather with the rain moving in and steady all day we called it a season!
So the Michigan Firearm deer season has come to an end and we did not tag a deer well that's hunting but just getting out was a great thing!
Will get um next year!
Now on to December and Muzzle loading and second season bow Here in Michigan we will see how that all goes!
So that's a wrap on my Michigan firearm season for 2009 here in Michigan.
But remember when you're out in the outdoors "Aim Small Miss Small"
