Case brought me some horns off a small buck his girl friend killed, always fine a use for such supplies. Sally just resting by the fire, it was wet and windy day. Dan giving Case some pointers of using a wood lathe. ;) :)

I have been having trouble with my scissors cutting leather, mainly because folks keep cutting stuff like sand paper with them, so Miss Joanie gave me an early Christmas gift, a really nice pair of scissors and leather cutter, they work great and I plan on putting them away for leather and appropriate material only. ::) ::)  Hope y'all had a good one also. Life is Good.  ;)

Ya Bob we did on the first one but was very careful not to on the 2ND. ;D  I guess it is all in the person doing the smelling, it wasn't a great smell but I have smelled worse things. ;) :) I am not sure if we hit it or the buck shot,either way it was kind of a mess in the back end. Wished it didn't have all the shot holes but don't think it will show from the fur side, It was a good one for me to practice on, never done a tube skin before so Shawn walked me through it. :) Woods were dead on deer yesterday morning, only seen 2 coyotes [ not in range]and bunches of squirrel , must be rutting time for them because they were everywhere chasing each other, ;) good morning all the same, I did find 3 new scraps just worked so I know they are still there, headed out again in a little while, 29 and wind out of the WNW at 8/10, prefect . ;)Then back to the house for Margaret Ann Wednesday so deer or not it will be a great day. :) :)

Good luck hunting. Chris and I know where some hogs are at and we're going after them in the morning. Looks like we have the same rain hitting us this weekend, also.
