One of the best days of my life was when we went deer hunting in South Dakota with my dad, brother, uncle and two cousins, but before I tell you about my trip let me tell you how it started. We left early in the morning to head to South Dakota where my cousin Jacob, who had just got a job as Game warden in Custer State Park, was taking us deer hunting. We got as far as Fargo, North Dakota when my cousin Keith asked my dad where our license were. Then to our surprise we forgot them back at home. We were lucky enough to have my two aunts and mom bring us the license because they were going to Fargo that day anyways for a girls shopping day.
“Guys, this place is revolting”, I complained to my cousins as we strode into the “Little Bear Gun Shop”. It was my first summer with my cousins in their new home in Oregon and a leisure activity we had since we were in elementary school was going outside in the forests of Illinois and shooting ourselves with Airsoft guns, toy guns that fired small plastic pellets. Despite the new state the tradition needed to live on. The Little Bear Gun Shop’s name definitely wasn’t false advertising since there were enough guns in that place to fully arm a small town, and in the town of Tillamook, this was probably the case. If you weren’t satisfied with your pristine automatic rifle, the little bear had you covered.
But there is one downfall, you can’t shoot till the sun comes up. That’s a long wait from four thirty to six o’clock am. It was worth the wait and excitement of hunting with my two older brothers. They picked on me and teased me, but they are my brothers and that’s what they do. My brothers told me that
The Day I “Stole” Steve’s Bike Here I am, sitting in a jail cell on a not so normal Saturday. Oh, by the way, I am Jim West. I am 45 years old and still live with my mother, in San Dimas, California. In my free time, I go to Waterloo, the greatest water park ever made, and listen to music by the Wild Stallions. The children in my neighborhood, call me, Jim the single guy.
After my mom forced me to get my Eagle (the highest rank in scouting) I thought I was ready to retire the sash, but my mom had one more trick up her sleeve… I learned I was going to philmont about a month before school ended. For those who don't know, philmont is a “high adventure” boy scout camp, and when you go there you put all of your belongings on your back and hike a route that your crew created, occasionally stopping at various outposts. At first I was very reluctant to go, but then after talking to my friends and discussing how fun it could be I decided what the heck. Me and my 6 man crew, 10 if you count the parents, planned our hike and then went
There was never a single dull lecture from my grandfather, only stories filled with bold ventures that were not written in the history textbooks. After supper, grandpa placed both of his hands steadily on the armrests of the good old rattan chair and sat down. The chair was comfortable but felt completely different from a sofa or a bed. Though it was covered by curved golden rattan vines, it was actually structured by wood. It was stiff and sturdy, allowing one to straighten up their backs when watching the store whole
With the sport of hunting gradually increasing in popularity around the United States each year, hunters are finding themselves in closer proximity to other hunters than ever. Naturally, this situation creates a certain element of danger, considering the minuscule amount of safety training required for a hunting permit, and that fact that nearly every hunter in America is walking around with a loaded firearm. Here are a few basic tips to keep you and others as safe as possible while enjoying the hunting season. These tips are based off of tried and true firearm safety "rules," and, if followed "to the T" are guaranteed to keep you and everyone safe from a tragic firearm accident. 1.
It was the middle of january in the cold thirty to thirty-five degrees with a bone chilling breeze from the north, and the christmas break is almost over, there is only enough time to go ice fishing one more time. Not only is christmas break almost over but ice fishing season is too. It was my Brother(Matthew),My Grandpa, a friend of mine with the name of Dale and I on this fishing trip. The fishing trip included a 1 night stay in the ice shack that my father had bought from a neighbor 's garage sale for a good deal, this shack is built from oak slabs, it has a wood burning fireplace and 5 holes in the floor perfect for my family and friends the only thing that I could say was wrong with it was the window from the north side of the shack had
Because of her grandmother`s hospitality, he stayed for a night at their house. He tells little Sylvie and her grandmother about a very special white bird he is looking for. Surprisingly, Sylvie saw this kind of bird in a forest near the village, and she is willing to show it to the young, attractive hunter. He promised to give ten dollars to anybody who will be able to show him the bird. Although Sylvie and her grandmother are in need of this money, she is not interested in helping him for this reason.
The importance of Spring Break is to take advantage of sleeping well ,but also have quality time with your family.Therefore, mostly Spring Break is to take time off of school and not worry about any homework we may or may not have. What I liked about my Spring Break was traveling to the RGV Livestock Show in Mercedes, TX. My family wanted to go to the Livestock Show for this in fact an amazing rodeo they have every year,but majority the food is the best out of everything there. For example, my parents wanted to come to this event since it’s every year once a month only in March. Furthermore, we love experiencing this event as a family to spend quality time together, making us want to go additional time.Consequently, when we were walking to the rides and shows we ended up getting sunburn do with us being there in reality early and walking around seeing everything going on.Effectively, we saw what we came to the rodeo the best part of the whole event in my opinion and what we were waiting for the entire day.Resulting, all of
His response was,” Go Back to bed it’s too early.” So, instead of going back to bed, I went downstairs and watched T.V for an hour and a half. After that, my dad finally came downstairs and we were ready to prepare for Deer Camp. In order to prepare for Deer Camp we first need our bags with warm clothes. It gets very cold in the mornings and we don’t have very strong heat because we are in the woods. Second, we need to get all of our camping supplies that we need, which is all organized and in totes.
We left because my dad wanted to, and right as we left Denard Robinson the QB scored a touchdown and they won. After the game we went back to Michigan state campus because it was so far from my house and it was dinnertime. We went to buffalo wild wings and got the 50 basket of wings. Ever since my dad told mel men don 't eat boneless” to this day I still don 't eat boneless wings. We watched the Oregon vs Tennessee game on ABC while we chowed on wings.
State Champs? I Think Almost When I first walk into my room, there is all of the basic things all around the room such as clothes, furniture, desk supplies, and homework; however, in the corner of my room is the book shelf my grandfather built for me. The book shelf my grandfather built for me is like a giant white dollhouse with a lilac purple roof. On the shelves, I have pictures, of friends and family, books, and my numerous medals and trophies from ten years of playing softball. Even though I recently stopped playing softball, I played for ten long years with my dad by my side the whole time as the head coach.
About a week after Howleen’s suicide attempt, Clawd and Clawdeen organized a little investigation to track down TVC. Clawd had intended the investigation to be much like the one for Harmony’s murder, but since the circumstances were different this was either going to be really easy or really difficult. It also didn’t help that not all of the original investigation team could be there. Abbey needed to stay home to care for Icer, Howleen was out for obvious reasons, Valentine could not be reached, and Draculaura was at a family reunion. So, it was just Clawd, Clawdeen, Heath, Jackson and Frankie, though soon Duece offered to tag along.
Dr. Meyers, Hello! I hope your Thanksgiving was rejuvenating and enjoyable with family and friends. This is Angelia (Angel) Hirsch from the summer practicum course through Liberty University. I am not certain what happened over the week of Thanksgiving, but our house (which is a 125 year-old historical home, really a niche market, not many want to deal with the special things that come along with the age and up keep) suddenly went into high demand and we had numerous offers come in on Wednesday! We spent Thanksgiving countering and ultimately getting an agreeable offer.
