Honey Camp Dove Club

Opening Day of Dove Season could not have been any better at Honey Camp Dove Club.  We are first year members and we were welcomed graciously by this amazing group.  Being the first “full fledg ed female member” I was truly excited to be a part of this group.  There have been many females who have hunted as guests there, so the group was very happy to have me join in as these women have proved to be on their game!  After a blessing for the hunt and for the beautiful feast prepared by Dale Shelley, we took to our stands.  I did not by any stretch of the imagination limit, but I did not get skunked either.  I took home 4 birds and I was happy with that.  It was my first hunt with my new 12 gauge Benelli ultra lightweight and I was on a bit of a learning curve there for sure!  What a great time we had and Trippett did great taking home 10 birds.  Can’t wait until next week!

Deer, Dove, Duck Season!!  What’s a girl to do???

Deer, Dove, Duck Season!! What’s a girl to do???

With the opening of duck season,  and dove season winding down, AND deer season still going strong until January 1, 2016, how do you choose?  My choice of what to hunt?……. Deer hunting without question! Don’t get me wrong; they all have their charms. Dove hunting is a welcomed season after turkey hunting ends way back on April 30th.   It’s a long summer!  Duck hunting is a passion for many hunters. It just does not happen to be mine. I am excited, though to be going back to DW Outdoors in a couple of weeks to hunt ducks and I do have my new 12 gauge Benelli which I hope will make some difference in my skill set. But deer season is my true passion. I love those long hours that for me seem to fly by as I visualize that big buck stepping out from nowhere into my site. This year has been a tough one with many of my fellow hunters yet to score a deer.  The thought is that since  we hunt in the low country and with all  the heavy rain and flooding, our hunts have been less successful than our friends to the north where the deer apparently sought higher ground.  Our freezer is only half full and my husband and I  are determined to get back out to the woods before the last day of the season to find that elusive buck.  For me, it is all about harvesting amazing game meat for special dinners with family and friends. For those of you who hunt and love the outdoors, get your shopping done and presents wrapped and head to the woods before the season and the year draw to a close!

Giving Thanks For The Harvest

Giving Thanks For The Harvest

We have come a very long way from the first Thanksgiving.   Historians say that the turkey was probably not the centerpiece of the celebration and that it was more of a political gathering with 90 men – no women and no pumpkin pies.  Not until Abraham proclaimed Thanksgiving as a national holiday 250 years later, did the turkey become the star of the celebration. How wonderful it must have been… the forest providing the meal of  wild ducks, geese, and other small birds stuffed with herbs, maze,  acorns, nuts, venison roasted over an open pit and vegetables grown from seeds that year by the English. Today,  we have butter ball turkeys raised in crowded buildings, shot up with growth hormones and eat hams that were produced in the same manner. So,  why is all this dislike for hunting?  I am so happy that my husband and I  have been able to harvest wild turkey, quail, duck, doves,  and venison throughout the year.  It is easy to understand that hunting is not an option for many people and that is fine.  What I don’t understand is why hunting is looked upon with contempt by so many people.  I am a hunter and am proud to have harvested two deer this season so far which will provide many beautiful venison meals for my family.   I would love to celebrate this wonderful tradition of hunting with other like minded men and women who understand the importance of protecting our second amendment.    Please don’t fall into the trap of being politically correct and be prideful of your contribution to conservation and support of our right to bear arms.  Happy Harvest!!   Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pinterest (Opens in new window)Click to share on Google+ (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Like this:Like...
