Default Who's been hunting?

Its been hot and dry here in NE AR Passed some does during bow and muzzle loader season. Shot one squirrel for the pot at camp and went up the the Spring River and caught our limit of trout.
Finally got an 8 pt buck the 2nd day of rifle season. The big full moon made the morning hunts futile. The buck came strolling thru the woods at 3 pm. Heard the deer harvest was down this year, which could be due to the hot weather or people afraid of the CWD found in the N central part of the state.
Duck season opens tomorrow and we have the decoys out. But had to pump up a few acres around the pit as there was no water in the area. Partner saw three ducks on the pond yesterday so maybe we'll get to shoot a few.

I guess it cooled off enough to push a few ducks south. Three of us got eight teal and a gadwall on Sat. I got reports of some people limiting out on mallards that pumped up rice fields. We take Sunday off but we will try it again tomorrow.

I tagged out Saturday. I almost hit 2 driving to deer camp. Put my hunting clothes and saw 6 driving to get on my stand. Climbed the stand with 2 in view. in stand at 2. Shot an 11 point at 4. He was the 23d deer I saw out of the stand. saw one when I loaded him and another by the bar when I hung him up.

fwiw, my dad moved the family to Texas back in late 1954, from Warren, Arkansas. Chuckle, the moonshiners in our part of Arkansas launched a campaign backing the preachers to have the counties in Dad's beer distributorship franchise voted dry. They succeeded, Dad's business ruined, we moved.

Anyway, one of my vivid memories of Warren, when around 5 or so years old, was going with Mom to downtown Warren, which was the county seat of Bradley County, in the S.E part of Arkansas. It'd snowed and it was deer season. Parked around the county courthouse were numerous cars with a deer strung across its fender. Mind you, the cars were circa 1950ish or earlier with big fenders. Recall, Mom had problem finding a place to park due to the number of them. All had come into Warren, to have a bite to eat at Wayne's place, a combination old fashion soda fountain, sandwich place, drug store, with about 5 snooker tables in the back room.

Chuckle, dad had a key to Wayne's place. He was quite good with a pool cue. Was a gent from Warren named Red Murf, who was a professional pool hustler. He'd leave Warren for a month or so, going across the country, winning money and return to Warren with his winnings till he spent it all and then go on the road again. Red had a key to the place too. Dad could give Red a good game playing snooker, beating him often. One time, some ignorant pool hustlers came into Warren and Red played one of them. Red let him win for awhile and began to win. Other guy, realizing what was happening, enticed my Dad to shoot snooker with him. Chuckle, Red and Dad cleaned the two guys out.
