We went hunting. Payson, AZ
It’s so much different in Arizona than in Texas. You have to win this lottery basically and get drawn to be able to carry a gun and get your kill. There’s the white tail week and the Elk week. Literally only like 2 weeks a year. Don’t quote me on that, but I think it’s pretty accurate. Also, you don’t have a lease where you know there are deer. The state has divided land and mountain ranges to hunt on. So you have to go and scout it out weeks prior and figure out where these little guys are. Tim and his family have been hunting for years and he’s only got one for himself and his brother, Brock has yet to get his first kill. Crazy. So much different. Don’t worry, my vegan, animal friendly friends, they only kill what they will eat. Which..is probably still awful if you’re vegan.
Lot of info there. So some cute stuff happened while we were there.
Scarlett helped scout a little and liked to hang out in her chair and watch the sunrise.
This is a run over horny toad. It was my first time to see one in real life..Except kinda not because it was dead. We told Scarlett that it ate too many sundried tomatoes and threw up. We’re not ready to have the death talk with her yet. This next one of me and Scarlett is very charming and cute. Little did we know there was a giant gray spider crawling on my back while this precious moment was being captured. I just got the chills thinking about it again. eegh.
