Blazing On

photo.JPGHappy Thorsday!  Consider this a paw-blic service announcement.  We don’t know about your part of the woods, but here in ours, hunting season opens on the first Saturday in October.  This means we’ll be wearing our blaze orange when we walk, right through the first Saturday in January, especially when we’re in the woods.

Yeah.  Our walking trails are on posted land, no hunting allowed.  Yeah, Mama and Dadaw only allow the nice neighbor boys to bow hunt on the back of our property, and they grew up with dogs – Boxers and JRTs – and love us, so we know we’re very safe at home, even without the bright orange “we’re not deer!” attire.  But… sadly, not all hunters are ethical, and not all hunters are careful, so … we will be.

January 2011 003And we hope you will be too, if you’re ANYWHERE near hunters or property where hunters might be, whether they’re allowed/invited or not.

Note all of our orange is reflective too.   It’s getting darker earlier and earlier, and we must assure Mama has no excuses.

Safety first, but walk on.

    That’s how it is out here, too. There’s also a shooting range very near the inlaws house and they wonder why I don’t want the kids exploring the woods behind their house. O.o

    Yes, yes, yes! It is so important to be visible. Momma’s rule is that if cars have their headlights on then we have our reflective gear on, period, even if it isn’t sundown yet.
