A Hunting We Will Go…

Don’t worry.  The only thing “shot” in this post are the pictures.  😉

At age 19, Sawyer is all about hunting.  Very serious about hunting!   He has been hunting with my father 3-4 times per week since hunting season started.   With the weather perfect weather the perfect weather coming up on Friday and all the sheep sorting and farm chores caught up (mostly), we decided to go hunting.  This was my first outing for the year, so I was more than excited to head up to the ranch for a little peace and quite and just soaking in all the natural beauty around us.

My father-in-law’s ranch…

Normally, Sawyer, my husband and I are up here at least every weekend, cutting wood/hunting.  This year though  my father purchased a logging truck full of logs and had it delivered to our place, so going and getting wood has been knocked down a notch on the priority list and we haven’t been hunting this year, yet.  That and my husbands new job has had him gone quite a bit too.

We did see lots of does and one little spike a gazillion yards away.     So we were unsuccessful in our hunt but had a wonderful day together.  Our first son/mother hunt.  Lots of laughs and talking ~ maybe that’s why we didn’t see much!   😉

The sun setting on a perfect day!

Grizzle’s Lambs

Well what a wonderful way to start off spring!  We had our first set of twins born to Grizzle and sired by Blackfoot.  A beautiful moorit grey ewe lamb and a handsome horned chocolate moorit ram!  Perfect deliveries and Grizzle had them dried off, up and with full bellies in a jiffy.

A Nip in the Air…

We’ve been having a bit cooler weather lately, could be maybe because it is October! ;0)  But after such a nice long extension on summer it’s a bit of a shock on the system when the weather suddenly goes back to its regularly scheduled temperature.  The mountains  have even gotten their first dusting for the season…
