Just got back from SHOT Show. Highlight from the show - meeting Lisa Baron (aka the Writing Huntress, blogging as Lisa Jane) I've admired her writing style for along time and, let me tell you - she is the real deal! I hope things work out and I get to get out to North Dakota and hunt with her and her husband Mike next year. Great people.
I am still loving the picture / photo thing. Trying to get good shots of birds - particularly sea ducks - is tough but occasionally rewarding. The backyard types are easier.
My wife and I went out to the beach yesterday afternoon - first time looking for sharks teeth in about 6 months. Bad tidal conditions but a beautiful day. 63 degrees in the end of January. (Can't believe its a winter storm today, but it is) Despite tough conditions and a lot of other people looking, she found our FIRST Megalodon from the local beach. Its a posterior tooth, but it's complete and, I think, awesome! Also found 3 porpoise teeth, including out biggest ever. And a possible croc tooth. Not a bad day.
I'll post more often this year - I promise
