Bear Hunting With A Princess
Posted 23 September 2012 - 07:44 AM
After drying off and a hardy lunch of my best Zoodles and buttered bread we started going through some cloths to keep her warm and dry. Women are a mysterious creature even though we were going bear hunting she still had to have cloths that matched ??? They also need to have a properly placed ponytail so it fits out the back of her camo ball cap... she was disappointed that she only had the rubber boots with pink polka dots that didin't quite match the pattern of being camouflage I assured her that bears like pink polka dots!!! She rolled her eyes at me.... when she was 5 the explanation that bears liked pink polka dots would have been satisfactory inspiring other thoughts that bears may also like pretty butterflies lollypops and rainbows....
Mom arrived home to find two camo clad bear hunters ready to roll!!! After assuring our boss (The Queen) that the princess would be kept safe by "The King" to witch I received the same roll of the eyes as the princess gave me earlier we headed out. I did some quick baiting while she sat in the truck playing with her I-pod.
We did a safety check of our gear and I did another explanation on gun safety were the muzzle points and safe places to be when you are a princess. Then I committed the ultimate fashion offence and draped her outfit in hunter orange
We were sitting comfortably in the blind at 3:30 and she sat perfectly still and very silent on several occasions over the next hour I asked her was she ok, cold, hungry, bored... I was shussshed on each occasion which is strange cause at home she never shuts up....
After an hour and a half she broke Thank God LOL.....and we got to chatting about nothing in particular. Thats when a slug traveling on the window sill took her interest that was when I received my education on slugs she described things like how they move by laying down slime to reduce friction against their bodies allowing them to ``slide`` along much like us when we are skating or sledding Who Knew... I asked where she learned all this stuff and it turns out ``school`` while they learned about invertebrates!!! I guess the do teach them stuff in school because when ever I ask her what she learned in school today at the supper table she always says... ``nothing``
After educating me on invertebrates the topic changed to BOYS and that they are disgusting....wheeew!!! But funny Huh ... she told me stories about the boys in her class giggling like a 9 year old school girl while I thought about how to break it to her that boys are always disgusting but funny at any age....Boys are FUNNY...... so it begins
Before I knew it there was about 10 mins of light left and I decided to take her out to the truck and call it a night while we could still safely see....
We never saw a bear lots of squirrels, bluejays, and a grouse but my night was a complete success!!! I took My Princess hunting and talked with her while enjoying the great outdoors!!! What more could a man ask for....
