WHAT I SHOT AT HUNTING CAMP!

As I said in a previous post, I went to hunting camp with some of my family this week.  The guys were hunting duck.  I shot a lot more ducks than my sweetheart and our son shot!  (I enjoy my kind of shooting a lot more than their kind of shooting!)

DUCK MOS

I also shot other wildlife.

BLU HR MOS

BIRD MOS

cows

 

I took a day trip, and did some more shooting.

And I took some shots at a (very bright) sunset.

Whoa! You had me going. I really love your shooting style. This kind of shooting is also easier on your elbow. I got tennis elbow from the other kind of shooting :0)

Mellodee said...

Oh how I wish that your's was the ONLY kind of shooting there ever was!

Great photos! Loved the cardinals, looks like a Christmas card!!

salmagundi said...

I like your shooting a whole lot better than the men folk's! My husband used to duck hunt when we got married - then he brought some home and told ME to do something with them. Oh No - not this girly girl!! He hasn't been hunting since then. Sally

Your photos are breath taking. I especially love the photo of the cardinals. God's beauty is all around us, we just have to stop and take a look.

Sue said...

Oh my heavens- I had visions of you out on the lake hunting ducks with a shotgun! LOL- I am pleasantly relieved, Laurie! I liked all your "shooting", especially the grave stones. The husband makes fun of what I call them. He says they are "head" stones. Must be a regional thing- he is from Iowa. Out west, we all called them gravestones.

Kim @ Starshine Chic said...

Now that is my kind of hunting. Great shots.

Jacqueline said...

My kind of shooting too (and you don't have to eat anything greasy this way!)

The cemetary shots are just captivating. I wish we made headstones like that still, such masterpieces!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

You got some great shots. Those homes are so pretty. I just love the shots in the cemetery. The headstones are old, unique and beautiful.

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Those are so gorgeous Laurie!
Great shots, I love the cardinal shot and the sunset and the pretty victorian home!
All so wonderful!
Looks like you had a great time!
Hugs,
Cindy

Debbie said...

Wonderful! You and I could definitely spend time together because I love your kind of shooting too.

Those cardinals are my favorites. I love the pops of red against the bleak winter tree. I also love the Victorian homes. I would love to live in one. Actually, any old home would do...

Loved the field trip, Laurie.

That was cute post. You sure were quite reckless in your shooting. Not sure that bull appreciated it though...lol...

Olive Cooper said...

Haha..you big softie. Love the cardinals. I am glad to know I am not the only one to snap pics in cemetaries. ♥O

Kathleen said...

I hear the shots around here early in the morning. Deer, ducks,etc The herd of deer have to be thinned, there are so many!
Not that I could shoot one, but if people use them for food, so be it.
Love your shots! Are we allowed to say that anymore?

Fun! I love your wildlife shooting party! I'm going to join in for your Valentine party this year. I missed it last year. :P
