Crispy morn

Nippy 34F degrees this morning. Probably frost in the lower areas. But it is calm and quiet. We had more wind yesterday. Getting real tired of it.
We got our tested and new glasses ordered. Will be nice to get them. My eyes have changed some, but not as much as I had expected. I think my biggest problem is that the glasses are so scratched up I can't see good through them. Carol's eyes had changed more. Glasses should be here in a week or so.
The wild turkeys are running around outside the fence. As you can see one roosted on the fence last nite. They are driving the dogs crazier. They don't bark much at them. I think they haven't quite figured out what they are. There are about 30 turkeys that range around our place. We see them 2 or 3 times a day. The other pic is an early morning moon over NW Kansas cornfield.
We bought groceries and stocked up on some extras. Gradually getting stocked on some essentials. Upped our supply of ammo. Most we can get locally. I have some 7.65X53mm coming next month then I will be set. Need to check black powder supplies, but think they are ok.

  1. Are you going to be using the ammo to bag a "wild" Christmas meal :)

    Nothing nicer than cool, crispy mornings in my book...

  2. I'm not telling. Maybe next spring during season. After I took the pics they came into the yard. About 50 feet from the house. I got more pics and a video. If it is good I may put in on later.

  3. Smart buy on the ammo. Most folks just don't keep enough ammunition stocked. Love cold weather, wish we had some here. Thanksgiving turkey is in the bag.

  4. We have wild turkey here too. I almost ran over two of them going up the trail to the house the other day.

  5. Stephen--I don't mind a little cold, but we will have sub-zero temps at some point. Wind chills 30-50 below zero.

    Arsenius--They are becoming way too thick. There were two hatches that I have seen. Pheasants same.
