I went out hunting with Mike for the first time Friday evening. I pulled on my big girl panties and climbed up into that tree stand (up climbing sticks, not a nice ladder into a box blind). And I plopped myself down with his XXL camo pants on to keep myself warm.
It was a really fun experience, and something I look forward to doing again. We saw a little 4 point buck, a doe and 2 fawns. Nothing worth shooting at, but a perfect first experience because at least we saw something!
Here are a couple pictures I took of the experience:
Mike crosses his legs sometimes to “help his back”. lol. And, he held my hand. 🙂 Notice my awesome Syracuse University rain boots that I had on before I put on my camo “moon booties”
Mike taking pics of me.. Me trying to not look scared out of my mind being up in a tree. And my safety harness all set up, hood up trying to stay warm.
And lastly, freezing and really ready to go inside because Mike wouldn’t stop talking about ordering pizza and he made me hungry!
