On the Deacon Teacher campout on November 8-9, only 2 scouts attended, and one of them was me.
When we first arrived at the pecan ranch we set up our tents and started a fire. The leaders had brought food, including smores. I ate a bunch of them. After a reasonable amount of firewood had been collected, the 2 scouts and a couple of leaders, including me went boar hunting. When we had first got there, we had seen a boar and deer, so we were excited.
We were surprised by many skunks. I counted 11! Thankfully, none of us were sprayed, but we did shoot at a raccoon and blew a possums leg off. Brendon stabbed it to death afterwards. We all went to sleep at 2:00 a.m., and woke up at 6:30 the next morning.
After I made breakfast we went to a clearing and shot guns at clay pigeons, softballs, and targets. I managed to hit one of the clay pigeons with a .20. I also shot a .45 caliber and a .22. It was awesome!We had a lunch of sandwiches and marshmallow pies. It was one of the best campouts I have ever had.
The new truck tent!
Talmage was so exhausted... with so little sleep that night, that he took a nap on the way home :)
It's crazy that he is going on big campouts such!
