Goat Hunt September 19-23


Here is my first goat. It was 3 1/2 years old with 7 1/2 inch horns.

It was a little over a 6 hour hike from our float plane drop off to the top of the mountain we camped on. This is a rock chute we climbed through on our way to the top.

Camp

This is Ben and I. Ben was the one responsible for the hunt. He also shot a goat the same age but with shorter but thicker horns. We didn't see a lot of goats where we were hunting. We worked hard for the goats we got and even harder after we got them.

One last picture of my goat.

Hunting

Here are pictures of last weekend's hunting near Sumatra, MT.
1st is a coyote, then the antelope I shot with my Sharps, then an antelope I shot with my new .270 Winchester. It ran into the fence and you can see the hair that was knocked off when it hit the fence. The 4th is the glory photo with the 'new to me' pre-64 Model 70 Winchester made in 1949, in .270. It was a good week, even though I didn't get my 3rd antelope. Happy hunting...Kirk










I love Montana!



After driving to Rexburg to visit my friends Sarah and Earl, I helped my dad pack his hunting camp into the moutains. I was able to ride along for 2 of the 3 days it took us to pack the tent, stove, and feed into their camp. This is a view of the pack string from my saddle. We had up to 6 horses on the second day.



Quick temple trip on Saturday!




Then on Sunday Smokey and I played cowgirl on a friend's ranch with my dad.

Shannon's Room

Shannon turned 13 on the 14th of October and for her birthday I painted a dancer silhouette. the head of the silhouette is actually shannon's so that it was personalized just a bit:)
And in case you cant read it, the saying above the dancer says "if it were easy, it would be POINTELESS." pointe dancing... pointless... get it:) the words are vinyl though, i didnt paint that.

Just to prove

That I am happy a lot of the time here.
I feel like lately I have been a little whinny so I wanted to show you one of my favorite places in the world on a sunny day. I LOVE our boat and I do love to fish (especially with the Deep Six because we have a special connection--it's an art!)
