    Well, with 1 1/2 weeks at our place in Montana what was I to do. Fishing has slowed and we had a new .22 that was calling my name. Husband gave me some training and yesterday I had my first target practice. By the end I hit the red dot in the middle of a 3" square at 70 yards three times in a row. I was ready! The warm weather has brought out the sage rats so today was my first chance. Bingo, this one had to be a careful shot as it was standing on a rock. After that I headed for the river for a little lunchtime fly fishing. How can it get better than hunting and fishing during my lunch break from work. :thumb: This cast and blast thing is pretty fun.

    Right on NFL.
    Wait until it pheasant season, with chasing roosters in the AM and fat trout in the PM.
    Life doesn't get much better than that.

    Pretty fun AND I was able to get my compound bow set up on the way back to Washington. As of Sunday I have a practice range set up and I am learning archery. Bring on the turkeys and maybe some day I will graduate to antelope.

    Hey young lady....did you fry them or bbq them? You know your mother taught you to never waste game. I'm sure your hubby would have liked them in a brown gravy with muchrooms over rice....

    They are in the freezer waiting for you. I figure you are such a good cook of wild game that I would let you handle it the next time you are over. :thumb:

    Nice work, NFL.

    Archery for pronghorns, eh? That sounds daunting. Best practice beyond 40 yards eh?
    I've found that time spent on the archery range is very relaxing, like casting a fly line in the back yard. The two sports have a lot in common.

    When I was at NFL's house on the Madison there were pronghorms within 20 feet of her deck. She ought to just practice throwing her butcher knife at them.

    Isn't that the truth. I taught two friends of mine, who are archery hunters, to fly fish several years ago, and guess what they gave me...........another expensive obsession.
