Stressful Decisions

One would think when fall hits for a person who loves to fish and hunt, they would have perma-grin all day. To be honest, this is the most "out of doors" time of year for us, but the decisions to be made are quite stressful. Do we head up to Idaho and hunt ducks? Where? The water is up in all of the reservoirs we frequent, which one is holding the most birds? Do we go after ducks or geese? Or, do we fish? The fish are frantically feeding, they are sensing the approaching winter and the lack of "evening hatches". But do we hit the river or the lake? Local or day trip it somewhere? Oh the stress of it all. On top of those questions, the colors are literally bursting up the canyon, do we have time to head up and capture the exploding reds, oranges, and yellows on camera? There is only one thing to do..... all things. Burn up some vacation days and do it all. We've been busy chasing birds, catching fish, and standing in awe of the beauty in Logan Canyon.  Sweets even made it out on a girls only trip with her sis and P-nut.  Below are some of the outings over the last week. The perma-grin remains....for awhile longer





Dennis running one down....


Blue Wing....wing



Ryno got out on the youth hunt and showed he can add to the jerky supply



Tom throwing one heck of a rooster tail with mud motor


This tree literally had green on one side and blazing red on the other










Ricardo got lucky....


Taking pics with a digital SLR and holding a fish at the same time can be tough.  I felt sorry for this little guy, we had a few takes...



Pucker up.  Lucky Fish!


P-nut wondering if that fish enjoyed it as much as she did


Sweets showing P-nut where the fish hang...

I like the picture of Madison sitting on the rock. The fall colors are awesome.

Must be tough wondering about where to hunt??? And by the way, that cat is big enough to swallow you whole too!
