Is It Possible??

   Wow, guys!  I have 816 views and 9 followers after four months of blogging.  That makes me sooo happy. :) I guess that means you like what write?  Be honest with me, share your favorite thing about my blogging, or what you don't like so much.  Your opinion means a lot to me!  Please tell all!
   Now for the challenge.  In exactly one month I turn 14.  Do you think you could get to 1000 views and 20 followers before then?  That would be soooo amazing!  I obviously can't do that on my own, it will completely depend on fan-power.  There are lots of ways to help out the cause.  Share through Facebook, Twitter, your own blog, and old-fashioned word-of-mouth.  Any way you could chip in would be absolutely awesome.  If you spill about me on your blog, let me know, and I'll be sure to check it out and leave a comment!  Thank you all sooo much!  You make this totally worth it. ♥

I've Been Away

   I'm in New York (not the city, just the state).  My grandpa has a blood clot, and Mom and I have come to Rochester to help out and visit.  Prayers would be lovely. 
   I have lots of pictures from the trip, and there will be even more.  I will post after I get home!

A Fruitless Hunt

   Well, not entirely fruitless.   While the only thing I accomplished on Saturday was to cripple a doe, my brother got his first deer!  He's been waiting a long time, and I know how great it feels to shoot your first deer.
Jonathon refuses to have his picture taken, but here's a really-not-good wonderful shot of his doe.
   In the morning I saw a doe, and really thought I hit her, and so did my dad, but then no trace of her could be found.  Here's me, the ever optimistic, happy hunter.

   In the afternoon we sat in a different stand, and these are some pictures I took after I almost feel asleep just sitting there, plus a video of my view.
   I had the randomest (is that a word?) songs popping into my head -and sticking there- all day!  Want to know just how odd my playlist was?  Here's three of the songs:

We're learning this song in choir - the alto part is hard.

Absolutely love this song!  All of Beckah's music is amazing.

   Right before dark we saw two does together, and (after I fixed the gun so it would fire, which took like a whole entire minute) I shot at one.  I knew for sure I hit that time, since we could see her leg flapping when she ran off.  We searched til well after sunset, but there just wasn't enough blood.  I'm sorry, poor doe, it was a bad shot. :'(
   So, (even though I can not seem recover my gun-aiming skills) it was a wonderful day.  I love sitting in the woods, and the time alone with my dad is awesome - plus the chili at lunch was really good.
   Do you all have any hunting stories?  I would love to hear them.  Comments make my day!
