Black Powder Season has Arrived
Black Powder season opens tomorrow in our region, and the boys are beginning to gear up.
My husband and I have already taken several hikes in the woods these last few weeks since bow season opened earlier.
We have been exploring some new places - while the boys track, I hunt down the light - looking for just the right amount for a good photo in the dark woods.
Most of the leaves have fallen so that lets in more light for photos, but it makes it noisy for hunter's footsteps.
So that means we will find the right spot - usually on a rock wall or fallen tree - and we will watch and listen.
That is when the scopes and binoculars come out so the boys can get a better view.
I use the lens on my camera to look around, but I would rather have a pair of binoculars. With the Nikon ATB Promotion that is now running, I might pick up a pair so I can get a great view too.
I am sure they would be cheaper than the lens and tripod I would like to get so my camera can capture those good views also. Besides, the woods are too dark for that kind of lens.
Perhaps Santa is listening - I will have to help him find a great deal!
