What a Weekend Afield!

Mon, October 25, 2010

Youth from Chicago to Anna gathered at the World Shooting and Recreational Complex in Sparta for a Youth Wingshooting Clinic and Controlled Pheasant Hunt

Wow! What a busy weekend I’ve had. Saturday was a fun filled day with the young folks and volunteers at the Wingshooting Clinic and Controlled Pheasant Hunt at the World Shooting and Recreational Complex in Sparta, IL; then zooming home long enough to change clothes and head off to the Kaskaskia Valley Delta Waterfowl Banquet.
Sunday was spent introducing the new pup Willie to more of the woods and the Mississippi river.
To say I have tons of photos and tales to share - well that’s an understatement. Here’s few of my favorites from the afternoon at the shooting complex to get things started. Rest assured there’s still lots to come!


Mama Gets her Big Buck - At Church!

Fri, October 22, 2010

One of the best things about belonging to WOMA (Women’s Outdoor Media Asociation) is all of the talented members that are there who really crank out some great reading material.

I loved fellow member Anne Vinnola’s latest blog entry so much regarding her experience with the big buck at church that I had to share it with folks here.

Hope everyone enjoys her tale as much as I did!


3 Chicks and Few Hens

Thu, October 21, 2010

Monday I made a trip across the Mississippi to visit with my niece Heather and her daughter Nicole to do Nicole’s senior pictures. After we were finished with the photo session we decided it was a prime day for mushroom hunting in the hills and bluffs that surround their home. Even if we were to find nothing, the love of just wandering around the woods is something that all 3 of us have inherited from “Gramma Mueller”

Although in general the woods were pretty darn dry, and I wasn’t holding out much hope, my niece thought we should check her favorite “shroom tree” . That girl knows her woods - lo and behold half way up the steep bluff she was shouting - “They’re here!”

The three “Mueller Girls” had a super day in the forest, snagging senior photos that as Nicole said , “No other photographer would think about taking” and gathering up a good many hen of the woods.

Maybe I’m a sappy old lady, but I like to think that my Mom was watching from somewhere and was smiling as her girls cut and hauled out enough mushrooms to feed half the neighborhood.
