More pictures from our walk through the building where all the outfitters were advertising their hunts.
Taxidermy fascinates me.
Maybe it’s because I get to look at these beautiful animals up close.
Cerwin considered going hunting here this fall, and had talked to the guys on the phone, so he was looking forward to meeting them.
He chose Hunt West Kentucky (see yesterday’s post), but will keep this one in his memory file. Dates didn’t work out for him this year.
Cerwin hunted bear at Trackdown Kennels in northern Maine – twice – several years ago.
He enjoyed talking to Joel (left) – the owner. Joel is French so it is pronounced Jo ‘el.
After meeting all the outfitters on his list, we bought smoked brisket sandwichs and went to the Small Arena to enjoy lunch.
While sitting there we learned that Chris Brackett was going to do a show of “Archery Trick Shooting”.
Most of his targets were moving – after someone threw them into the air.
After shooting at his own items, he asked for things from the audience. He shot holes in a lot of hats.
It took him a few tries, but he eventually hit it.
A can of soda.
This was his finale.
He stood at the far end of the area and had to hit a certain area of the black box for the two-liter bottle of soda to explode.
It happened on the first shot.
By the time we left for home, the snow had melted slightly.
I told Cerwin the trees now looked like tall cotton plants.
I guess we were driving through “high cotton.” 🙂
