Oh, Deer, Deer, Deer

Here are a few pictures of Mike's buck (a 500 yard shot!), Andrew's (my nephew) first ever buck, and my doe.

Mike's Bear!

Here he is ladies and gentlemen (and Wayne:) - Mike's 1st bear taken with his bow at 25 yards. I'm very proud of him, and very glad he's safe and sound!

Dale's Cow and Bear & Steve's Cow Elk

Congratulations to our hunters from NY! Dale got a cow elk and his first black bear, and Steve bagged his first (very large!) cow elk. Good job, guys!

Jamie's Bull Elk

Congratulations to Jamie on his 5x5 Bull elk - and a 60 yard, at that! It took 6 hours for the 3 guys (Mike, Jamie, and Steve)to get back to the 4-wheeler with the elk. Mike said it was the hardest pack job he has ever done. Even worse than goat hunting! It was so steep where the elk died that the guys had to tie the bull to a tree to keep it from sliding down the mountain. Truly a hunt to remember!

Katie's First Harp Lesson



Katie had her first harp lesson today which also turned into a violin lesson. Her new teacher said soon he will bring a cello for her to try. She had so much fun! And Hunter enjoyed it so much he didn't even want to play outside!

Mike's Bull

Half an hour into bow season Mike shot this big-bodied 4x4 bull. He and Wayne saw a group of 5 bulls just after daylight, and Wayne cow-called this bull in for Mike. What a great way to start off the hunting season! Now, it's Wayne's turn!

Perseid Meteor Shower

FYI - Tonight and tomorrow night are the best viewing times for the meteor shower. You see the most meteors after midnight, but we all layed out on the trampoline (the perfect meteor shower watching venue:) until around 10:15PM and saw around 15 or so. We love meteor showers!

Having a 4-wheelin' Blast!


When we went on the church camp-out last weekend, John brought a small 4-wheeler for the kids to ride. Hunter was a crazy, dangerous driver (we won't be getting one of those anytime soon!), but Katie did a great job driving. She and Hunter (as a RIDER) spent literally hours driving around the campground. They had so much fun!

Coyote Hunting

Mike took Davey Rhodes coyote hunting last night and this morning. They called in 4 coyotes, and ended up shooting 1. They both shot at the same time, so - not sure who got it. They also called in a bear. Looks like it might be a good year to have a bear tag around here again!

Camping at Beaver Reservoir

Yes, yes - I know we come here alot, but it's beautiful and convenient. Our big excitement was on the way home when we saw a sow and 3 cubs. She stuck around for a while so I was able to get a picture!

P.S. How do you think Mike looks clean-shaven? We're in a quandry here...
