What a weekend!!!

Postby vahunterinms » Sun Feb 19, 2012 12:28 pm

Jr and I had a great time friday and saturday.. Friday morning we were blessed to take the Umpa Lumpa boys on a hunt and a hunt we had! As soon as I turned petey loose he went and got treed!! First couple trees were den trees then we started seeing sq's and the hunt was on. We seen 10 sq's and knocked down six and a coon to petey.
By the time we got out if the woods my ribs were hurting pretty goog from laughing..
Here a some pics of friday morning with the Umpa Lumpa boys.

Saturday morning was a wet and very wet hunt..
We were supposed to have a big group but when we met our meeting place it was clear that it wasn't gona be but a hand full of hunters. In the rain petey and copper managed to make a few trees but managed to get three down to the brothers.. I was only able to get a tailgate shot..

May have to start calling him , Deep Pockets! :lol: You can't hide money! But when u have a dog like Petey I guess it makes it easier to buy the nice "toys" . I cant bring Gus around Petey because he might expect the nicer things in life. :rotflol:

Here is a picture I took of the place you hunted Saturday back during the spring when the river was up (may not be the exact spot, but close). The woods in the background is where you hunted and this was taken from the main gravel road if I remember right.

Image

Maybe we can get you back next year and the river and weather will cooperate.

I bet Jr. wished he hadn't worn those hip boots to go mountain climbing Friday. :lol: I'm very glad you both came and hope you had a good time. As I said before I hate that I had to work and missed all the fun.
