I’m heading off to  Patton, PA momentarily. The stated purpose is actually to go hunting. But I suspect that the only real shooting I’ll be doing is with a camera. Although I don’t actually intend to injure, mame or kill a live animal, I am looking forward to trying out a shot gun, if only to hit a tree.

I’ve been wanting to do this for a while and one of the things I was really hoping for was the opportunity to do some photographic shooting.  We’ll be escorted by Mike’s cousins, who are real hunters. They live in rural PA on the family homestead. Some of them are still farmers  and most look forward to hunting season with much anticipation every year. So it should be fun to hang out and to see what this is all about.

I guess for this city slicker it should be an education. I’m going to try not to embarrass myself.
(I’ll post pictures tomorrow after the hunt!)
