Hunting Trip #2...

...Friday Matt and I went out hunting again and neither of us saw a damn thing! Sshh! Don't tell anyone but I got a lot of reading done in the afternoon. I think I was discouraged from the previous weekend and my heart just wasn't in it. Here is a pic of me in my hunting gear (not great with the sun in the background), I was dressed for warmth and warm I was!

In the morning, I dropped my cough drops and fruit snacks from my stand. Here I am reaching for them (I'm about 20 feet in the air and don't tell anyone I had the camera!). Matt wasn't happy when he came to get me down and I had dropped all that stuff on the ground-oops!
Here is Matt and I's convo during lunch that day:
A: I haven't even seen anything to shoot at to see if I'm a good hunter.
M: Hunting isn't about shooting, it's about what you see.
A: Then I must suck.
I went 2 days and a couple hours and only saw ONE DEER! No one in the Groeteke family got ANYTHING this year. Poor Matt's dad didn't get to go this past weekend because poor Grandma G fell and broke her hip on Friday. So until next year deer, you are safe from me but I'll get you one day!!!

Have you heard Bill Engval's bit about taking his wife hunting? Yeah, I'm pretty sure that'd be me! I can picture myself being miserable because I was so cold!

I totally admire you for going though!
