We just finished putting the blind up, along with some barbed wire fencing around the perimeter that my husband has promised will prevent the cows from shredding my new blind. Secretly, I'm very happy about this. Moo cows are scary. They are cute from a distance, but up close they kinda freak me out. Well, okay.. mainly just the bulls.
Since the majority of my time hunting in the past has been spot and stalk, I'm not sure how I'll do just sitting in a blind. Waiting is hard. I have ants in my pants. So, this is where I need some advice. Any ideas to pass the time while hanging out in a blind??
Here is my current list of necessities that will be packed in my back pack for the day:
- bow / arrows / release / broadheads (duh)
- bug spray
- good book - haven't decided what the daily read will be
- toilet paper
- I know there is something else I'm forgetting....
Brigid from Home on the Range has once again so eloquently expressed her thoughts in a recent post that relates to evenings spent waiting for the perfect moment. I'm looking forward to these quiet moments out on the prairie this weekend, and will be hoping for my dwindling light opportunity. Wish me luck!
