Surf's Up...on Vacation

So I know it's not upland hunting related but I had to brag about our trip. I'm still here on the island of Kauai in Hawaii. So far it's been nothing short of fabulous. I'm here with my wife and her family to celebrate her Mom's 60th birthday. We've done all the sightseeing but the relaxing is the main attraction to this place. Of course you can't come all this way without going to the beach to try and catch a couple a few waves. While this was only my second time surfing I was able to get up a bunch of times to ride the waves in. We leave tomorrow night and I will not soon forget this trip.


By the way I did see a few Ringneck Pheasant's on the island. I also just finished a great book, Upland Days by Willaim G. Tapply so I guess I did add an upland flare to the trip.


Here are a few pictures of the trip.













There are few more days left in the upland season so once I get back to Colorado I'll be taking the girls out one more time to chace some pheasants. After that we'll be in the duck blind a few more times and then it's on to the training circuit.



Til next time.................

It looks and sounds like you all had a great time, Matt. Good for you!

I'm jealous. It's forecast to globally warm up to about 0° F here Thursday.
