Bwana ~ The Great White Hunter

The hubby called me this morning. The connection from his cell phone wasn't very good but it was nice to hear his voice. I guess I miss him more than I thought......but that is a good thing!

He called to ask me to contact his brother before he leaves to go to deer camp. Seems they need a few things that they hadn't thought about before they left.

He also wanted to share the news that he shot a BUCK! I'm not fond of venison, but I had to be happy for him. The excitement and joy in his voice was something I am glad I had the opportunity to hear. It wasn't a big buck by any standards ~ six points isn't huge ~ but still after many years of hunting in the U.P. and coming home with only a "cold" this is a red letter trip!

He shot it with his hand gun at 75 yards through the hardwoods with one shot. Even though it was done in fun, we won't be making jokes about his hunting skills anymore!

I asked him if he was coming home now that he had his buck. His reply ~ "I still have another weeks vacation and I can help the other guys look for a buck with their name on it."

Oh well.........I should have known better anyway!

What is it about shooting something that gives men a rush? husband was dancing a jig when he shot his buck this season. 'Do you think Bailey would want to see it?' he askes. Our 3 1/2 year old? 'No..I don't think so honey. But we are happy for you!' I say.
