Saturday Blog Rodeo 10/13/10

Holy Fatwah Batman, I'm still in Afghanistan! Another couple or three weeks have come and gone and I am still here in Afghanistan, the Talibanannas still haven't zeroed in on me, and as of yet I haven't been maimed, injured or killed! And that's not from lack of trying on my part! If people actually knew that this silly little war we are fighting will likely never be won, and that the Talibanannas will be back, they would vote for Al Gore and be done with it!

Anyway, once again I bring to you the Blogs, posts, and commentaries that I found most entertaining and informative! And believe it or not, none of it has anything to do with lackluster leadership, the Tea Party, or Nancy Pelosi's new broom.

So let's get on with it now shall we?

Out of Alaska, the great Hodgeman speaks on the proper care of the game we take one it is down. In Hit the Ground Hodgeman spells out the steps to take to ensure you bring your meat home clean and unspoiled. "Nothing is more difficult and fraught with potential disaster for meat care like attempting to field dress a bigger critter with a drum taught distended gut. So while your buddy puts away the camera, don your gloves and get out the gut hook before its really unpleasant. A lot of folks attempt to put off this step because it really is unpleasant but waiting will not make it more so and the "field dressing fairy" is away on other business." It's a definate read for not only the first timer, but all of us!

Love can be bitter sweet. Our well spoken and erudite huntress Hunt Like You're Hungry, has entered a post in the Outdoor Bloger Network contest. The story, like some dark chocolates, is bittersweet, and allows us an enjoyable, thoughtful moment into the young woman's life. My Thanksgiving Deer, would make a wonderful addition to a hunting journal anthology. Give her whole blog a read and let her know you've stopped by!

My neighbor Ian, never fails to entertain or educate! I just recently bumped into his blog, and I am for sure, driven to emphatically sing his praises. His blog, The Wild Life, covers his nationwide search for drama and adventure, though I'm pretty sure he isn't really hunting those two things. I guess he's sorta like me in that respect. Anyway check this out: "I am terrified of flying. Palm-sweating, convinced I will die at any second terror. For years, I have rambled about this ad nauseum to anyone who’ll listen. Always have been scared. Never had a bad experience, minus the one time my parents had to literally peel my fingernails off a jetway ramp at Tampa International when I was 8 to load me on an Ohio-bound aircraft." And it only gets better from there. I have to get with Ian and fly one of these days, maybe a C130 on a hot landing into a hostile LZ! Check out his Fear of Flying and more Montana Pictures.

Well my friends, the war never sleeps and I am once again pressed for time. If you know of a blog that needs notice, let me know. If you have a post that you are particularly proud of, let me know too, I'll let folks know too!

The Rasch Outdoor Chronicles

Albert Rasch,HunterThough he spends most of his time writing and keeping the world safe for democracy, Albert was actually a student of biology. Really. But after a stint as a lab tech performing repetitious and mind-numbing processes that a trained capuchin monkey could do better, he never returned to the field. Rather he became a bartender. As he once said, "Hell, I was feeding mice all sorts of concoctions. At the club I did the same thing; except I got paid a lot better, and the rats where bigger." He has followed the science of QDM for many years, and fancies himself an aficionado.

HLYH, do you have a mobile version of your blog? I'd really love to read it, and I have tried to several times, but my eyes just can't handle type scrolling over a photo background. Guess it's just one of the pitfalls of getting older.

Dude! My ugly mug on the front of your blog... I detect your readership going down!

Thanks for the shout out Al and for keeping the world safe from Talibananas.

Stay in one piece.

Always a pleasure my friends.

It is with great pride and a sense of camaraderie that I present what I like, for others to view and experience. We should all take the time and let folks know what we like out there!

NorCal Cazadora, I'll work on it. I had no idea one could make a mobile version but I'll look into it. Once I get it up and running, you'll be the first to know!
