How to Tell if You've Had a Good Weekend

I noticed something not too long ago.  There is a strong correlation between the injuries on / discomfort level of my body on Monday and the amount of fun I had over the weekend.

This past weekend was a perfect example.  Saturday consisted of ...

Coyote hunting which resulted in the death of one 70lb evil pig (212 yard head shot sitting, off a bipod; 130 grain Remington Core-Lokts; wind negligible; temperature stifling; chigger factor 8.7)...




Installing the door and roof and putting the finishing touches on my newest deer blind...

Moving a buddy's deer blind with two other red-necks with a unique combination of ropes, 4 wheelers, sweat and an old boat trailer converted into a deer stand moving trailer...


Putting out 160lbs of protein feed in 109F weather...

and butchering and cooking the prime cuts off the pig.




My battle scars for the day's efforts included...

a sunburn (picture not available)...

a busted knuckle from deer stand manipulation...

A blood blister from too quickly collapsing the legs on my bipod when the pigs came back to investigate one of their fallen comrades...

and about 200 chigger bites on my back, arms, legs, arm pits, ankles and nether region.

All in all, it was a grand time and I look forward to the next outing but with more OFF!
