Hunting and Dressing

This past weekend, my dad and Chris took Caleb on his first hunting trip. What a memorable event! The men woke up early and went to the mountains. Caleb has been dreaming and waiting for this day for weeks! He had been reading up on his game and learning all about small game.

Chris, Caleb, and my dad, Clark.

We made them pose for several photos.

After several hours in the mountains and trying to find land that wasn't posted, the men went over to my grandfather's sister, Eleanor's land to hunt. Thanks Eleanor for allowing our family to hunt on your land. They had success!

Caleb's first kill.

Caleb shot his first game, a rabbit, with his new 22.

Caleb was so excited! We are proud of you Caleb. Great Job!

Along with Caleb dreaming of going hunting, Abigail has been excited about dressing game and cooking it. She got a book at the library which she used as she dressed the rabbit. The following photos are of Abigail dressing the rabbit. These photos are very graphic.
