Hunting For Precious Treasure!

Hunting For Precious Treasure!

2017 marks a milestone year for Trippett and Lindsay Boineau, our son and daughter-in-law, who celebrated their 10th wedding anniversary in May. Memories of their beautiful ceremony in Pawleys Island always make their visits back to the beach extra special. Spending time at Lindsay’s family beach house in South Litchfield Beach with their 3 beautiful little girls, ages 6, 3, and 1 year, is lively, as you can imagine! They carve out as much time as possible in July at the beach house so they can spend time with family and friends who gather to enjoy the 4th of July holiday. As their last day of vacation rolled around, they spent the day the way they had every other, playing on the beach with the girls and enjoying the waves, searching for seashells, and just relaxing. Without a second thought, Lindsay took off her rings to put sunscreen on baby Elinor, and Trippett placed them in her chair’s cup holder. Three-year-old Caroline had been busy collecting shells and putting them in the same cup holder alongside the rings. When you have three small children, your mind is always on them, and it was later that evening, after the girls had their baths and were put to bed, that Lindsay realized that her rings were missing. How did little Caroline’s collection of seashells make it to dinner that night just fine, but not a thought was given about the rings? What to do? In complete darkness, they went about retracing their steps, but it proved to be frustrating and they gave up for the night. After a restless night’s sleep, worried about the loss of her rings, Lindsay, who has a knack for figuring things out, went on a Google search and typed: “What to do when you lose your rings at the beach?” She soon realized that she was not the first person to make that same search. She found that there are actually professionals who search for lost jewelry, and there was such a person close by, namely Matt Fry. Trippett was a bit skeptical, but more than happy to do whatever was necessary to get the rings back. After all, the diamond in Lindsay’s engagement ring had belonged to Trippett’s late grandmother, Elinor, and it could never be replaced. This treasured ring, along with two beautiful bands, were somewhere in the sand, and he and Lindsay wanted desperately to find them. Enter Matt Fry, a member of The Ring Finders. Driven by the hunt and the satisfaction of a successful find, Matt goes about his business of finding lost treasures. Lindsay reached him early the following day...

Let’s Get This Giveaway Started!!

I have not been able to take the smile off my face…I recently had a very good duck hunt and I am in a great mood!  Bird hunting has always been challenging for me and I think now that I have my “hunting contacts”  worked out, I will continue to do well.  I will remain humble and hope that my next hunt will be just as successful.   To celebrate this memorable duck hunt, I am offering an amazing giveaway to one of my subscribers! It is absolutely one of my favorite books … Rice & Ducks.  No, it is not a recipe book!  It is a treasured best seller  that covers the history of our beloved Coastal Low Country and how the the rise and fall of the rice plantations influenced the habitat  not only for waterfowl, but for all other native species of the Palmetto State.  The author, Virginia Christian Beach,  traces 200 years and brings to life the men and women who toiled in the rice marshes and those who became unimaginably wealthy.   This book will not end up tucked away on your bookshelf…it will be read from front cover to back cover.  You will marvel over the rare photos and maps and recollections from interviews and personal journals and letters. The best part is the proceeds will go toward protection of the northern breeding grounds and protection of migratory bird habitat in the Carolina Lowcountry Instead of choosing a random subscriber, I have decided that I will award this very special gift to one of my subscribers who leaves a comment on my blog.  Winner of the 2014 Gold IPPY Award, this book is certain to be one you will be very proud to own.  The winner will be drawn on Feb 29th.

See “ME” in She Magazine!!!

  WHILE MANY WOMEN ARE PASSIONATE about things like shoes and jewelry, Maggie Boineau is crazy about camo clothes and the great outdoors. “I grew up in a hunting family. As a young girl, I had my own BB gun and bow. I always loved the outdoors, and my brothers even allowed me to use their guns occasionally.” She became serious about the sport after her daughters left for college and she had more time. When her husband, who has been hunting all his life, bought her a 20-gauge over/under shotgun, he and Maggie began dove hunting. It wasn’t long before she delved into turkeys, hogs, and ducks. Three years ago, Maggie began hunting deer, her current favorite. “Deer season is the longest, which has enabled me to gain a lot of experience and success.” She and her husband travel throughout the year and are currently looking to expand their hunting territory. For Maggie, the thrill of the hunt is the most appealing. “Being outdoors and being able to harvest my own food is very important to me. There is not much I don’t love about hunting. That close to nature, you never know what you will see, hear, or experience.” She decided to share her passion with others through a blog, titled Camo 365. “I spent so many hours in the deer stand and realized I had some awesome thoughts I wanted to share. After jotting down ideas for six months, I decided to start a blog.” The blog is open to everyone. “Men who encourage their women to hunt will end up with more hunts than those who don’t. My husband loves hunting with me. He has gone on so many more hunts since we started hunting together, and now he rarely goes without me.” Camo 365 was officially launched in September 2015, just in time for dove season. “This became the perfect way for me to incorporate my passion with my desire to write. I have so many ideas and would love to spend more time on publishing posts.” Along with the blog came a personal mission for Maggie to wear camo every day. “It is a statement of how important hunting and gun rights are to me.” THANKS TO THE DIFFERENT GAME SEASONS, Maggie’s hunting wardrobe has become extensive. “It was a bit frustrating at first, with a real void in women’s hunting clothes. That has changed now, and women have so many options for serious hunting clothes that actually fit! I always get compliments about wearing camo. Whether it’s a hat, jeans, or a jacket, my camo always sparks a conversation.” As a Realtor, she finds ways to maintain...

She’s Got Guns!!!!  Get your body ready to hunt

She’s Got Guns!!!! Get your body ready to hunt

One of my friends said to me recently, “you just sit in a tree stand, right?” meaning that she did not think there is much physical demand to hunting. She got me started! “NO, I said… there is so much more to it.”   Let me explain. …  Sitting in the stand  if you are hunting deer or hogs or sitting in a ground blind if you are hunting turkeys is just one small aspect of hunting. Unless you are paying for a guided hunt where they drop you off at the stand or blind, you will have some walking to do.   If you are  hunting on private land, you may find yourself walking at least a half mile to get to your stand.  You will  need to park your truck a good distance away as a vehicle may signal that there is something out of place in their environment and will scare off your game. You are walking with boots, heavy backpack, and your gun so you are carrying a pretty heavy load.  If you are in a tree stand, you need to navigate the steps with great agility and position yourself where you make as little noise and movement as possible.  Sometimes you are in the stand for 4-5  hours so it takes a lot of stamina. If you are running and gunning as in turkey hunting, you may find yourself sitting motionless up against a tree for hours and then walking miles upon miles to get to where the Toms are located. Dove and Duck hunting calls for repetitive shooting so you will be lifting up your shotgun to aim at the birds and after awhile, your arms can get fatigued and shoulders sore from the recoil. So,  hunting does require some physical fitness!   I am obsessed with Pop Sugar especially the 8 minute VS workout for toned arms.   They have short but effective workout for every part of your body.   Hunting is an excellent way to stay in shape while enjoying the outdoors and the many rewards of the sport.

The Beauty of Antlers!

  European skull mounts have been very popular for years.  There are so many creative ways to bedazzle them, but for me, I appreciate them just the way they are.  My 9 point and my husband, Trippett’s 8 point look beautiful on our piano in our library.  So, for now, that is where they will stay. This is the perfect time of the year to get out in the woods and  find antler sheds.  Decorating ideas are endless. If you have a prized mount or shed, please  share your decorating ideas!
