One week from tomorrow the hubby leaves for his annual deer hunting trip to Michigan's Upper Penninsula. He won't be home until the 27th. This is a tradition amongst the men in his family. At least, it used to be. But as the older members become too old to go or have passed away, the younger ones have finally wised up to the importance of spending the Thanksgiving Holiday with wives and children. Except for those between the ages of 30 - 60. They still seem to have "buck fever".
It would be one thing if they ever came back with a buck, but none of them seem to want to shoot them when they actually see them in the forest! In my opinion they should just take their cameras. At least they could take a snapshot and bring that home to show us all that they have at long last seen something even if they choose not to shoot it.
I find all of these preparations quite silly. Why do they purchase ammo and spend hours "sighting" their rifles and shotguns in when they don't shoot them. That isn't entirely correct. They do shoot their guns........at cans, bottles and signs on trees.
Hmmmm, I wonder how you cook those items?
