Quick update on what we are working on

Just figured I would give you guys a quick update on what we are working on.

First up we have the boat.  We are rebuilding it and painting it.  We have done a lot of glass work on it, repairing cracks and breaks, rebuilding the nose and ribs, and putting a fresh coat on the whole bottom side.  Next we have to glass the inside. We painted the outside with a tan bed liner and then we got a Natural Gear stencil from Styx River and we are camouflaging it with the paint kits from Styx River.  The inside will be done the same.

The outside painted with base coat

Finished the Camo on the outside of the boat
Next up we have the decoys.  Even though we started working on them first they have taken a back burner to the boat. Between the mallards, teal, blacks, pintails, and other species we only have about a hundred more to go.  

As you see we are staying very busy so wish us well.

Busy Busy Busy

     Well as you have noticed again, it is awfully quiet form the Briary River bunch.  This is again because we have more on our plates then we can handle (I thing I am noticing a pattern).  As many of you know, the fall before last we had a 1,000 year flood.  Then this past late summer/ early fall, we had a Hurricane hit us hard.

Getting ready for another year with a few add-ons

Its that time of year again.  Well its actually a little past that time of year but who is counting?  Time to get everything ready for hunting seasons.  Since I am a bow hunter and our season opens August 15th, I have been working on things.  Most of the bushhoging around the stands is done.  Corn has been put out (yeah we can bait here).  New stands have been put up and shooting lanes cut.  And my climber has been found (remembered where I left it while bushhoging).  It looks like it is going to be a great year.  Also as usual with us we are going to try something different.  This year we are going shrimping.

Well that was fun

Last week Ray and I set bush hooks for cats.  I am learning a good bit but I still learn a lot while fishing with Ray.  This time was no exception.  Most of what I learned I can not share under penalty of death(and not getting to go back).  But one lesson i learned I can share, and it is possibly the most important lesson of all.

Shad Fishing

  I know there are people out there that love to eat shad. I might even love it if I ever try it. I just have never had the opportunity to try it. But I do enjoy catching them. Now I know some of you are going to fuss that I should not catch them if I don't plan on eating them, but hear me out.
