Linc, we missed ya.....I gotta feeling that the guys that stayed over to hunt again today are going to be a little tired, I know I am, couldn't find my brush pants yesterday morning and now today my legs look like pin cushions from all the rose bushes. Shawns got some nice places to hunt.. some places so thick you can't see more that 10 ft in front of ya, but they hold the rabbits...it should be a little easyer time today, I think Swampbuck was bringing his dog, so that will help out a bunch. go get em' fella's [Big Grin]

Larry, thanks for the report. I thought about everybody all day yesterday, more especially when I stepped outside and the sun was shining and the air crisp. Good day for bunnies. Sorry to hear none were suicidal. I's sure there will be pics tonight. thanks for posting............Mac~

Great Time at the hunt. I had to come home last night due to family obligations today, wish I could have stayed the entire weekend. Shawn and his parents deserve a round of applause for hosting such a great event. Wish both Mac and Linc could have made it, I was looking forward to meeting you.

The prehunt festivities were a blast. There were targets for warm-up and novelty shots. There was a steel plate with about a 3 inch hole in the center to shoot through and break a balloon. Let me tell you, there were some great shooters there that made that shot. There were also a number of arrows that didn't quite make it [dead] .

We had some aerial targets to shoot as well as rolling targets to hone our skills before the hunt.


Larry Marshall (AKA Larry) was the nearest to closin' the deal on a bunny, and had a nice patch of hair to show for it. [thumbsup]

That wasn't for not trying though, arrows were slingin' everywhere and there were plenty of opportunities. On the last drive Mark Fedrizzi (AKA Mark Fedrizzi) was in bunny heaven - he unloaded his quiver and had to borrow some arrows to complete the drive [Razz] .

The food was awesome - venison chile and stew, pork roast, ham, kielbasa and kraut, venison jerky, vension salami, venison kielbasa, a 6 foot sub and more. What a feast!!!!! [bigsmyl]

great pics guys, I'm already lookin foward to next year. Yeah, I'm still bewildered about that one I hit, musta been some kinda bionic bunny, LAR43 witnessed the shot, I'm not one to judge distances, but I think he was between 20-25yrds out in some real thick stuff, threaded the arrow through it and thought I'd shot him dead, in fact he laid there dead for about thirty seconds, then the bionics kicked in and he took off up the knoll and a hundred yards or more across the field. and yes, Bark Eater, I left more of a blood trail than he did. [Eek!]

My hat off once again to Shawn and his family. This is my 2nd year and I did not think I could have more fun and share more comraderie(?) than last year..

The day went by faster than two winks and I think almost all of us had some very good shot opportunites. At one point I asked Shawn's dad (we should all have his capabilities --the man busts thru brush like you were going to get the paper) what his secret to his venison stew was and he replied "nothing to it" and went on to explain..

Great time..I am looking forward to next year..


thanx again to Shawn and his family,


Mark [thumbsup] [bigsmyl]
