First game cam pics!

There are ACTUALLY deer in the woods in Louisiana!  It’s not some guy with deer hooves attached to his sneakers!   I am beyond thrilled!  I sat in the stand last year and LOVED every second of it but I have to be honest I REALLY wanted to see a deer! I was disappointed that I didn’t. 

Mike and his dad went and got my game cam this week.  We’d put it in front of my lean up stand.  And behold!

These are the most beautiful creatures I have ever beheld!

This was the FIRST PICTURE!

Becoming an Outdoors Woman (B.O.W.)

Can I just say that I am PUMPED about going to B.O.W.?  It’s been a few years since I’ve been able to attend.  This will be my first as an actual hunter.   I will always credit the program with planting the seed that has blossomed into a full fledged love of bow hunting.

I’m excited this year as well because some friends from work are going, all three are newbies to B.O.W.  Billie (who is already an avid outdoorswoman), Aimee (I think she’s going under duress) and April (she wants to learn to trailer a boat) are all three going this year.  There is always a good showing of ladies from our area.  A friend of mine, Rhonda, is a volunteer instructor and has sucked a good number of us into the B.O.W. fold.  There will probably be about 10 to 12 of us from our area there this year.  It’s going to be fantastic.  I cannot WAIT!

I ganked this from the main B.O.W. website.

“Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (BOW) is a non-profit, educational program offering hands-on workshops to adult women. We encourage a supportive environment conducive to learning, making friends, and having fun. No experience is necessary and BOW is for women of all ages and fitness levels. “

It really is an amazing weekend and I am beyond excited to be participating again this year!
