Playing in the mud.....

The wife and I decided to do a little hunting last weekend after the rain.  We probably should have waited a week or so because it was so muddy.  But I couldn't wait knowing with the large amount of rain that we received that there would be big teeth sitting right on top.  This day wasn't that case; it seems that the rain covered up all the teeth that would have been out there and instead we ended up slipping and sliding the whole time.  We did manage to pull a few nice things out to make the trip worth it though.  I got my first ray crusher plate but didn’t realize it until I got home and washed all the mud off of it.   Then by shear luck I managed to find a nice Meg hiding under a rock.  I can’t wait to get back there in the after it dries out some and we can maneuver a little better.  Until next time.........good luck hunting!!!!
