Shot Through the Heart

I finally figured out why silencers are so popular here in the Mild, Mild West.

It's because if you're going to sit on the deck of your house and shoot at deer, you don't want to annoy the neighbors.

Now I'm not a hunter by trade (and I don't even play one on tv), so I don't get all fired up to get my Bambi-slaying on. I can go straight to telling lies and enjoying adult beverages without getting lost in the woods first or having an encounter with the crew from Deliverance.

But yes, those are actual deer across the street from my house. I apologize for the lovely blue tint from the Crap Cam 2000, but that's what you get when you try to carry a pop in your slippers while shooting action photography.

Maybe I need to get one of those swell photography books, and learn me how to take some real National Geographic type action photos. Forget it, anything important to see will eventually be on Youtube.

I can't wait until Guinness the Wonder Dog finally figures out there is a herd of deer in the back yard. Maybe we'll have venison for Easter....

Don't you mean shot through the Hart?

And if Guiness finally notices the deer, please have a camera ready, I'd love to see that! (It could be worth $10,000)

Will G-dog be wearing camo or bright orange hunting attire?

Do kids in Utah still get 2 days off of school for dear hunting?

Your Hillbilly town sounds just like my Hillbilly town.


Yes, put some red on that dog because someone will mistake him for a teddy bear.

You're having a similar experience as what I had when I first moved to upstate NY. I tried to take pictures of the deer in my backyard, but they're difficult to capture those ones. I don't hunt either, but I could quite easily if I wanted to.

It's been a while since your last post. I'm hoping those deer didn't turn the silencers on you . . .
