Opening Weekend

Opening weekend of deer season is like a holiday for my family.
We headed out to the lease Friday evening and Mr. H. and my son got up
early Saturday morning to sit in the deer blind for a few hours.

My daughter, Daisy and I slept in. :-)

After the boys got back to camp,
Mr. H. took me with him to put out a new pipe feeder
he had built.

And to show me the new deer blind 
his friend had brought out for this season.

He made it out of a shipping container.
I thought it was very nice.

It has a carpet remnant on the floor 
and it comfortably seats two hunters with room for a little heater.

It has windows on all sides that can be opened or closed.

My son hunted from the tripod stand.

One of Mr. H.'s very best friends and his Dad
are sharing the lease with him this year.

Daisy and I like to do lots of exploring during the middle of the day
when the hunters are resting.

Mid afternoon we headed into the bustling ;-) town of
Richland Springs to eat a late lunch at the Stagecoach Restaurant.

My family ordered one of their favorite things on the menu -

"fire starters." :-)

Then we headed a little farther down the road to the next 
town of San Saba - the "Pean Capital of the World."

We visited The Great San Saba River Pecan Company.

And I came home with a bag of the best tasting pecans,
some roasted pecan coffee and pecan fudge.

As the day began to wind down,
the hunters prepared to leave for the evening hunt.

Off they go!

Back at camp all that was left for me to do was 
 a little reading, a little knitting,


a little sunset watching. :-)

Love your pictures, as always, especially the bee shot. Looks like a wonderful time was had by all.

Looks like lovely weather and a great day. I had to chuckle at Daisy in the midst of it. I don't believe I've seen any hunters with little dogs :)
