My uncle and cousin and 2 of their friends are here this week from Missouri to go hunting. The season opens tomorrow. Their tags are good for a deer, a bear, or a mountain lion! They are all hoping for a bear! They are just sure they saw one up on the mountain above our house. There was a black spot there yesterday morning... and later it was gone... so it must've been a bear! At breakfast this morning they asked each other, "Wasn't it about this time yesterday that we saw that black spot?" Yeah, they agreed it was. So they went out with their binoculars to see if they could spot it again. (We've lived in the area for over 8 years and have never seen a bear, so the chances of them actually getting one are very slim, IMO, but maybe I'll be surprised! Wouldn't that be a hoot?)
DH took them on a scouting expedition today. He's not a hunter himself, but he took the day off to show them around since they can't shoot anything today anyway. They seem to be having a good time.
