    Cool The kids out looking for the easter bunny.

    My four year old had been bugging me to take her on a bunny hunt, so on Friday night I put her, our 13 year old boy and the neighbors boy (6)in the trailer. A mate turned up with his son (6) so they came along too.We headed out for a drive over the farm, heading to the cow shed firstand nearly shot the misses cat. Opps! After telling the kids we really shouldn't shoot mums cat we headed over the back of the farm.The weather was great and you would of thought there would be bunnieseverywhere, but it would appear not tonight. I made the mistake of tellingthe neighbours kid we were going to shoot the easter bunny, so we had to takea break while I promised him that we really wouldn't. After driving around our farm and the run off all we brought home were 4 hares and a bunny. But the kids had a ball and enjoyed telling mum about nearly shooting the cat. Bloody thingshouldn't of been at the shed. Name:  535027_3680269649043_1344108693_5095205_1588948144_n.jpg

    I think you learn alot by learning to hunt as a child...you learn the acuteness of mortality, an independence that who knows might save your life oneday, you learn about physical tiredness, your willingness in endeavour, your senses are made keen...you can learn the star names on the way home from a possum shoot, and stuff like self-reliance, and other valuable skills...how to cut meat properly, sharpen knives...as a girl I relished learning these things from my father and elder brother and my last hunting trip with my father will always be in the front of my memories...mostly cos it was the first time I could actually beat him to the hut and have the billy boiling by the time he arrived!! And over a billy of tea in the evening, him saying "good shot back there" was a compliment you were never going to forget'.
