Milestones, and Other Drivel

Ah yes it has been a year to the day since I started Women's Hunting Journal. My how fast the time flies. Lately I have not been keeping up on my usual 2 to 3 posts a week. Life in general has interjected along with perhaps a bit of burn out.

I am amazed as to how many new outdoor blogs have begun in the past year. It is great to have more women writing about their hunting and fishing experiences. I enjoy reading the wide variety of women's blogs. More on this subject in a later post.

What's new here on the home front? Well, getting ready for the 8Th. Annual Quail Flats Wild Game Feed in two days. Thankfully I have finally gotten some major new tunes on my IPod and have lots of rocking music to prep the 20 ducks, 5 Specs and 40 Venison Stuffed Venison Mushroom Caps. I love my music and a great cup of strong coffee, gonna need both for these recipes! More on the specifics of the recipes later. There will be about 25 people here and it looks to be another fun wild game feed full of new recipes and many old favorites. There will be hunters, non hunters and future hunters too. No doubt plenty of tall tales, reminiscing of past adventures and dreams of hunts to come.

Other news is that I am now Twittering. I am not an expert at it yet , but I am dabbling and doing my best to catch on. So it's just another way to keep up with the Head Quail during this busy Spring. I hope you'll give it a try following and who knows, you may really enjoy it and I'll be following you.

My knee continues to improve and I look forward to getting out Bear hunting come May. Hopefully by then I'll be able to get to where I want to hunt and the hillsides will be greening up. Not going to do a lot of hard hiking, just more spot and stalk and keep my fingers crossed. We have had a few days of warm weather but I still think we need more to melt the snow and get the grasses growing. My hunt goes through the end of May and with some luck the weather will heat up so the grasses can green up.

That's about it for now, thanks for checking in and I'll have some good recipes next week and some pics from the Game Feed. Til then have a great weekend and be safe out there!

Scrambling, Spinning and Quandering

Where in the world has the time gone? I have been in a vacuum of sorts lately. Spinning in circles and wondering if I am making any headway at all.

Spring cleaning turned into staging my house to put it on the market. It has never ever been this tidy or clean. If anyone is interested in a nice home that is an easy keeper here in Central Oregon please raise your hand NOW! Time for me to scoot back up the road and get into Bend proper. Here's the listing information and as always please email me with any questions.

What else is new? Well going to see the Dr. this morning and hopefully I will be able to start doing some cardio. my knee is doing much better and with the warmer weather just days away I am really getting the itch to get out on my road bike. In all reality though that may not happen for a bit longer. Patience, patience, patience. I do realize in the big scheme that it's only been 2 1/2 months since I got hurt and I only wish I had a faster metabolism these days. I'll tell you, when he says I can start walking miles, you can bet I'll be putting them in! So will my little hunting buddy Jet. Time to shed a layer and I'm not talking clothes either.

My work in the shop has come to a screaching halt and I continue to stay optimistic in an ever disappointing economy. It's better than the alternative in my book. Guess I'll make some more bird houses. I am hoping to get down to Lowlands in May and do some birdwatching. It's a great place and a wonderful time of year. The mating rituals are in full swing around here now. Have lots of Red Crossbills, White Crowned Sparrows and some Tree Swallows hanging around my home now. Several other species too, but those are the cream of the crop for now.

The 8th. Annual Quail Flats Wild Game Feed is scheduled for next weekend and looks to be a wonderful turnout with all sorts of good food. Will let you know the details post event. Lets just hope it doesn't snow.
