In my blog I plan to chat about nature, crafts, baking, gardening, beekeeping, family, and whatever else seems appropriate at the time. Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

Deer Hunting with my Dear!

On Sunday, my Shug decided he was going deer hunting on our property and I said, "I'm gong with you." I was way overdressed. I thought I'd get cold when the sun went down. It was nice out, but very, very windy.

In our woods across the road from our house, you can see one of his tree stands.

He warned me when we crossed the road I had to 'NOT SAY A WORD!" And follow him....

because we have to walk around the area...blah blah blah....because the deer will smell me.

So imagine me not yelling when I saw this!!!!!! And how did he not step on it. It was right on the path.

GGGAAAAHHHHH!!!!! When I first looked down, it was stretched out all the way across the path like a stick. A BIG stick! But when I saw it, it curled all up and opened it's mouth and hissed at me. I was waving arms and yelling (in my head! not out loud of course) for my Shug to come to my rescue. But he kept on walking and went on up in the tree. When I get to the tree I showed him the pic on my camera. I think I also gave him 'the look'.

He sits waiting patiently...

while I take pics of our beautiful land.

and our house across the road...

and when I asked him to take a pic of me...

I got 'the look'! By the way, I didn't have a gun. I wasn't really hunting. I just wanted to go for the scenery.

Look at the amazing size of this tree. I'm standing on a limb!

After about an hour, of picture taking and texting (don't tell my Shug I was texting!) I decided to leave. Mr. Snake was STILL THERE!!!!! I have no idea what kind it is, but I do know there are very few poisonous snakes in Indiana.

So City Farmgirl Rebekah, what shall I name it?

Cindy Bee


  1. got a perm and then put on a hat? :)

    The tree limb is huge, the snake is scary..... and you get the look too?


  2. What a year for snakes. I think we should just stay out of the woods.

  3. Cindy, I love your hunting story. So funny. Smiles, Susie

  4. You are so funny you make me laugh. I would have high tailed it back home when I seen that snake. The tree stand makes for great picture taking.
    I love what you did for Feral Woman you are a great lady. B

  5. but darn it, you made the cutest "doe on the go" out there! Lol I get the look too from mr foresterman...often.

    and your eastern garter snake rocks - most of them start thinking hibernation is a good thing at this time of year - no wonder he was cranky!

  6. Cindy, That is just freaking me out this morning!! I can't believe he just stayed there! What about the thing everyone tell us snake phobics---oh, snakes are more afraid of you than you are of them. HA! I know it doesn't rhymne but I'm thinking Rambo.

  7. Could have done with out the snake photo...but otherwise it actually looks fun. Ick snakes give me the heebie jeebies!
