Blinds, Food Plots, Fishing and Weddings.

Well let me see where to begin. I've been busy visiting family in Alabama,working around the home front, my job,and working with my grandchildren trying to build a deer blind at my dad's place that's big enough for two of us as I have four of my grandchildren wanting to try to take a deer this year. The walls are up with the roof so now I have to get some hinges to put the door and windows on with then figure out the camo on the outside of it. It should make for a great year hunting with my grandchildren whether we take deer from it or not. I'm also planning on planting a food plot in front of it to help attract the deer and starting a feeder tube in the field close by it. A salt lick may not be a bad idea either if I have the time to get all this accomplished. My smoking habit is still an ongoing process I'm still working on and I've been fishing in our company bass anglers tournament at work that we've just started on may 10th. Two tournaments so far and my partner and me have come in second place but this you'll have to read about on my fishing blog ( http://fishingafield.blogspot.com ). I'm also planning a trip to Gatlinberg this October for a wedding vow renewal with my wife on the 27th ( 20 years ) and my youngest daughter is having a wedding June 21st redneck style ( with real shotguns and everything and everyone drssed in camo including her and her groom and plenty of beer for all). I've had a long year already and it's passing me by fast. I've also joined Facebook and enjoy that alot and have found many of my fellow bloggers there too. I've added a few new links to my blogroll which some of you may want to check out which deals with outdoor clothing, hunting equipment, fishing equipment and climbing gear of all kinds. look under " outdoor gear " for the urls of these three sites. Okay that's about it for now so let me go now to my other websites and update them with some new articles then I've got to get some sleep so I can go to work tonight. Hunting seasons coming quicker then we think so everyone get ready and have a safe year out there this year.

Would like to see a picture of the deer blind when it's done.
Don't give up on quitting smoking. I am going on two years without a cigarette after I quit after 33 years. If I can do it you can do it.

Sounds like my kind of wedding!

Rick; First off thanks for the support, I can use all I can get right now. Second on the deer blind so far all the material was given to me from work so there is no cost in it yet and the help putting it together was from my grandkids wanting to hunt from it so no cost yet there either. A picture will be in order once it's finished. Thanks for the visit and the comment.

Matt; After 20 years of living with my wife I still wonder where all the years have gone, seems like just a year ago. She only wants a traditional wedding with the two of us and the minister reading the vows rather than us giving each other our own vows but thats fine with me. She deserves whatever she wants and I'd gladly go through another 50 years with her if time allows it. Thanks for the visit and comment their always appreciated here.

Looks like you have a busy, busy life deerslayer...It's great to find our friends all over the net even on Facebook! I bet you can't wait to take those grandkids hunting. That will be so much fun, I know. I'm looking forward to taking two of mine...a grandson and a granddaughter. Will be back to see pictures of your deer blind. :)

Marian; I'm tickled to death to have them wanting to learn about deer hunting and can't wait to take them with me. Last year they went along to put up stands and scout some but this year they want to take a deer. Our blind won't be anything fancy but it will get us out of the weather and hide the movement. Got to get the food plot planted in front of it ( clover and chichory and turnips ).

Looks like you have your "chores" cut out for you. Isn't it great to be able to do so many things with family and friends? Sure it is. Keep it up.

Othmar; As long as life is there's always something to be done, getting the urge to do it is another thing. Now as for doing things with and for family and friends, I can always find time and the will to do that. My hunting sites are suffering some right now as I'm posting to my fishing site more right now but I'll return here soon enough with more post about my family and friends hunts and preparations . Your comment puts me in mind of a new post to write about in the next few days. Thanks for stopping by.
