Mark there isn't need to prepare them for public indoctrination camp. You're better educated than my wife and I and we homeschool. Grandparents can do that to.

I'm to close to Louisville for the stars to shine bright. But yes I enjoy being out enjoying gods creation. I was simply driving back roads I ran as a teen and had not been down in years last week. I realized I was working to many 16hr days and not slowing down enough to hit my recharge speed when at home on the farm or even when taking the boys hunting.

Wolf dog are you pj's one piece felt with the built in plastic footies? wink.

I'm likely to be in my boxers or necked If it's late enough and everyone is asleep and I don't bother putting anything on when I get up. But being necked has become rare for the last 15 years or so because of having a daughter.

Just got back from a solo antelope hunt. Really enjoyed the tranquility of sleeping out in the middle of no where alone with a bright moon out. Wake up several times a night just to take it in .

that moon the last few nights has been something , rained here last night sever storms at the NW edge of the county

my daughter moved to Milwaukee about a month ago , dad you can't see any stars , I mean I knew there would be less but , like any.


when I moved to Madison for college I used to take drives to get out of the city and see some corn , why corn , woods would have worked also but when you grow up with corn in most every direction for miles something about driving a county road through corn is just calming .


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

Being in the tree stand at dark is like that you hear a lot of nature sounds, I donít mind taking the dog out to pee at all hours also because you never know what you will see in the night sky.

I don't do it too often, because I sleep like a rock, but I love sitting outside at 5 in the morning looking at the stars.

A buddy used to come to the farm to play guitars and drink some whiskey once a month or so. I'd set up the stuff outside so he could play while I got the BBQ ready, then we'd eat some backstraps and something else, and play electric guitars til 3 or 4 in the morning. Nearest neighbors were far enough away they couldn't hear us... only the sheep and foxes were bothered.

Love the night sky.

Pete

I really enjoy the dead of night. I really enjoy duck hunting. Having my decoys out 1 1/2 hrs before shooting hrs. Listening to the sounds. 1/2 hr before predawn. The birds start singing. Almost like they are celebrating the new day. Summertime is the best to hear the birds.

I have the fixings for it. A pair of great horned owls live and breed on my property. Love seeing and hearing them except when I leave my big shop door open and they roost inside and crap all over my stuff. There were more coyotes here 5 years ago. Now I think every house nearby has multiple dogs, must be 50+ dogs live within half mile of me. Love hearing the coyotes, can't stand listening to the dogs barking. A single coyote yipping will set off the dogs for an hour or more.
It is nice when the dogs are quiet and the owls are talking to each other.

I have several generations of Barred Owl's out back, when they get cranked up it's crazy loud.

I grew up before A/C. Slept all summer in the South with the windows open, in a hot upstairs bedroom. Heard lots of sounds. Wasnít much fun for me.

I've never been a duck hunter but that post almost makes me want to be.

I love going out about 2 in the morning when I am way out in the bush about 80 miles from town at the trapping cabin on the north line.Especially on a clear night in december or january when it is about 40 below,and gazing up at the multitude of stars and galaxies in the dead silence.When the moon is full it is like daylight from the reflection off the pure white snow.Once in a while a tree will crack from the cold or the river ice will moan and you feel like you are the only living thing in the universe.
Often you can get wolves to howl at each other way off in the forest by giving a howl in winter or in the fall a moose call and you realize you are not alone.

I can't stand the bugs outside.

I just head to the basement and let the rats entertain me.

In the winter, it's an entirely different story.
