They are meant to be a bit of a stress reliever or make you smile, while still calling out brands that offer co-op funding to their reseller network. Anything shown in blue ink below is a brand that offers co-op funding. You never know, one may stick in your head and help you make a fantastic sale!

My First Hunting Trip

So, the nieces and nephews decided that I need to try deer hunting at least one time in my life. Not wanting to miss out on an experience, I went out and obtained the necessary permits and took off for a little shopping trip.

You are not going to find me “out in the wild” unprepared, but I think I went a little crazy. The first thing I purchased was a Eureka tent and sleeping bag. At this point, no one told me you sit in a deer blind all day so what did I know! I then purchased some Ibex long sleeve thermals to go under my new Patagonia jacket. It all tied in nicely with my Williamson-Dickie insulated pants. I had my “hunting chic” put together that would keep me stylish and warm at the same time. I also picked up a pair of Sightron binoculars and a Mag Instrument flashlight as I figured they were items we all could use.

My nephews had an older Remington rifle that they were letting me borrow so we went to the gun and ammo store for some Federal Premium ammunition. So, look out woods, here we come! I read that deer see good pretty much the same time I do – daylight hours – so why were we leaving at 5 a.m.? We get out to this blind (like I said earlier, who knew?) and just sit there waiting. The catch is you can’t talk – who can be quiet for that long – not me! Plus, I don’t care what kind of gear you are wearing it is still freezing. By 1:00 p.m. I had enough of the silent treatment and my bladder was crying for help. So, I thanked the kids for a really interesting experience and went and jumped in my Buick and pulled into the first BP gas station that had a working restroom. I then raced home, turned on my Capresso machine to make a nice hot chocolate, then jumped under some warm covers.

All I can say was why wasn’t I invited fishing (and maybe in August)? I have my Shimano rod and some Mack’s lures and I actually like throwing a couple of worms on the hook! Good luck to all the hunters out there this year – you should be grateful to know you won’t be crossing my path!
