A Bit of Deer Hunting.
I just harvested this really nice deer at my Buddy's camp " Paradise Valley".

The shoot was a bit behind..he was real close and I had to wait..when his head was behind a tree I did the final aim.

( In this second picture you can see the entry..first exit)

I didn't have the yak up..thought of putting it in picture and say I lassoed deer while swimming across lake!
We had fresh tenderlion the next night .

I can't draw a straight line, so I thought I'd try a different kind of art. Bonsai... the living art, It takes about five to six years to get to the stage where your 'picture' looks like an actual tree. And then because it's always growing the 'picture' is constantly changing.
Here I am giving a couple of 'hair cuts' to some the 'guys'





Here's me with a serrisa that I've been working on for about six years



A few of the boy's



A few more



A group photo



A honey suckle in winter mode ( no leaves)



And lastly a couple of future projects



And that's what I do when I'm not kayak fishing or riding my harley

   Well, I like to work with wood. But I've been kind of lazy these

last years, & have put the hobby more or less on the backburner;

here are some of the things that I've done, in the woodcarving

departement:

Walking sticks



Wood Spirit ( my currant walking stick )



Ball & Claw ( all in one piece)



Cowboy Boot



Cane - Bald headed Man  ( wood: african wenge)



Cane - Stylized Rabbit 



Cane - Monk



Mask (wood: zebrawood)



Hand Towel Rack - Calla Lily



So, that's a few of them, I guess I could re-hone my chisels... :-\

I'm not good with deadlines... :-[

My off season is spent at the curling rink. I curl in three leagues and I'm president of another. During the kayak fishing season I balance my time with gardening pursuits. I grow rare alpines and native species. Only one and half years to retirement so I should have plenty of time for all my pursuits!

I tend to spend most of the winter playing video games, tying flies and doing landscape photography (http://www.jeremyhockin.com).  Seems almost all of my photos are from the winter because there is so much more to do in the summer I just never get out with the camera.

Jeremy, I really like your photography, thanks for posting the link. 

Winter is as busy, if not busier than summer.  Mostly driving kids around, but I fit in badminton, snowboarding, telemark skiing, noridic skiing, skate skiing, ice fishing, and maybe some fly tying (no sense of urgency to get patterns done in the winter, best left to the night before a trip.  I have built rods, but there is even less of a sense of urgency to complete the project).

In the past I would have played the winter away on my PS3.  This winter i plan to continue on my goal for better health, and I am going to take a stab at writing, and reading .

Cheers

Derek
