Hey guys, i didnt quite know where to post the pictures of my 1st snow goose!  I have been waterfowling for 15 or so years and this is actually the 1st snow goose i have seen wit ha gun in my hands!  We just dont get many snow geese in my neck of the woods. This goose gave me the opportunity at a shot while mixed with a flock of 50 specks.  Im not sure if you can tell, but i am real excited!  I picked up the new HO mag on lunch break, pictured, i guess it was my lucky day!!

For this time of year did have a pretty good week end. My farmin buddy and I got a 10x10x8 walk in cooler bought, now just have to pour some concrete to set it on. My best friend that I hunt and fish with rolled up Saturday morning with a brand new G3 fishin boat, it is a 2011 Eagle 176 I believe with a 25 hp motor. May try and hit Sangchrias Sat. or Sun for some crappie. Have 4 beef hearts & 7 tongues in salt brine now to smoke this week end also. And take a beef plate out to get in a brine to make beef bacon.

I had the recipe for the tongue and did the hearts the same way. Before smoking I season them up real good, put them in stockinettes and smoke em. I slice them real thin on a slicer, one of the best roast beef sandwiches you will ever have. My Grandma used to cook them in the oven and they were great but that is one thing she cooked that I can not match. Looks like fishen may be out calling for showers both days. May have to Teriyaki/Garlic up some chicken wings Fri. to cook Sun. on the grill, or I just made some Garlic/Onion, Horseradish and Italian deer sausages last Sun. may throw them on the grill also and sit and watch guys turn left all afternoon. and have a fight with Mr. Beam again. Bought some of that new Ocean Spray Cranberry/Cherry drink the other day, it goes pretty good with Mr. Vodka.
