Pheasants and such

I rang in the New Year at a pheasant hunt club.  One of the rules of the club is one must wear an article of clothing above the waist that is flame orange. 

The mud boots are not quite hunting appropriate - but hey a girl's gotta look good even if you are just trudging around a field.

Mr. VZ "whoa-ing" Zipper to the pheasant sauntering along.

This club offers the service of plucking and cleaning the pheasants.  Mr. VZ brought one in still alive.  The lady at the counter asked him if he could "do something about that" so he said he would "expedite it."  The counter lady asked "what does that mean?"  I piped up, "It means he is going to kill it."  Now, I can't help but  think when a poor fish or fowl has died, it has been expedited.


  1. Happy New Year Tami! What fantastic photos... LOVE the first one and the mud boots are adorable! I wonder if they come in a "heeled" version? :-)

  2. I can certainly understand why you need to wear orange:-)
    Thanks so much for stopping by. A huge Happy New Year to you!!

    1. Even then I have heard stories of over-anxious hunters "spraying" others bedecked in orange - I'm thinking flaming from head to toe (H2T) might not be a bad idea ...

  3. Wonderful images.
    Wish you Happy and Prosperous New Year!

  4. Oh boy this looks like so much fun!! I went skeet shooting for the first time last year and loved it. Love the boots!! Thanks so much for linking up with Cool Clicks!!!
