going hunting part III

getting ready for our 153rd annual deer hunt here in wisconsin!

will be staying in the excella again, can't ask for better place to stay! (and of course thanks to my host and hostess rick and jean!!)

wondering if we have any other folks that use airstreams for hunting retreats since we have so many new members from last year?

john

Hey John, I'd like to see a larger picture so I can see you in your orange zoot suit.

John:

I have been looking for a smaller AS trailer to use for hunting purposes but no luck to this point finding anything in my area (MT). Got up at 4am for the 1st day of the hunting season and drove to state land. It would have been a lot easier to have been able to roll out of the trailer just before dawn and get situated.

Depends on what you're huntin'.......I'm partial huntin' Grand Vistas or unforgettable Sunrise/Sunsets to shoot.....point only with a camera.....and hope I get a "good shot". No license required!

PS, How many of the 153 hunts have you been on?? How many times were you skunked/successful?? Do you expect to be in snow country??

Have a safe trip!

Jim

i have been hunting deer since i was 12, that would make it around 30 years.

bagged a deer in about half of those hunts. it isn't looking good for snow this year, keeping my fingers crossed!

If you're successful....can you send me some deer meat jerky?.......I'll pay you handsomely (never had the time to do the "guy thing" with friends..... hunt......deer.......with a gun)!
You're the best (shot I hope)!

i'll see what i can do...it would be pretty hard to get the jerky out of the house. the wife and daughter are very fond of it. they consume it as fast as i can make it!

I do some hunting down in South GA. while visiting my wife's family, and we have started taking the as to stay in. It is much nicer to be in your own "home" than someone else's. We just pull up in the pecan grove and hook up to water and power.

I haven't had a good season so far, but hopefully that will change. I just got into bowhunting this year, and it has really been frustrating.....but it is getting too cold so time to break out my rifle.

yuk!

i hope we never get them around here! our dnr has put out "shoot on sight orders" for wild hogs. they do alot of damage and are not native here.

off for a second try, i wish we had got some of that snow you folks had out east.

My Father-in-law was a avid hunter and one of the main reasons he bought the Airstream we now have. Its been involved in two shootings. One right above the rear window through the skin and hidden by a Wally Caravan plaque and another it appears my father-in-law discharged a hand gun while sitting on the bed and killed the original Reefer. Bet his ears rang for a week!

There is a notch on the end of the Gaucho that looks suspiciously made as a place to put a rifle. Its cut so that it looks like you could put the gun in muzzle first and basically point toward the ground. The arm rests would effectively hide its presence. The opening looks perfect size for the butt and their are scratches under the gaucho as evidence that something metal was slid through the opening and resting against the wall.
