    Ladies night.

    My niece came by this afternoon to fish. She hadn't been on the property 10 minutes when I hear several shots. I went to investigate and here's what I found. Little jerk even talked me into gutting, skinning, and quartering it for her.

    Spring has sprung

    Walked out the house this morning and had a hen under the feeder in the front yard. Saw 6 more turkeys driving the couple miles down our gravel road. All the toms/jakes were gobbling their heads off.
