I'm jealous.


It's 55F in Joshua Tree right now, windy with a good chance of rain. Less than ideal for biking to Yucca to run errands... I'd rather have the snow :(

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

I'm not ready for this yet sorry.

Even earlier than last year. Mini ice age perhaps is nipping on our heels.

Those f*#king ass eaters are about to get the full brunt of my pent up chukar anger. I just love that its rained and its going to make for some hard hunting as the birds have plenty of water now and no need to go to a main source. I look forward to the long walk.

Plug out? Check
Shells? Check
Beer? Check

2 spare tires? Check
Bacon and Smoke Gouda for chukar wrapped in Bacon? Check

Headed to the Battle Mountain area for a look. Smoke Creek eeegads that is old news.

I like your quail idea. I'm looking forward to ducks in a couple of weeks. Nothing like life in a blind watching the world fly by.
