What A Weekend!
By Brad Wilson - Guest Contributor
Hunting season! I had the pleasure of spending the weekend chasing dove with a great group of guys. My younger brother is getting married in a few weeks so myself and a few of his friends put together a bachelor weekend at a friends ranch just outside of Weesatche, Texas. There was great food, clay targets, shotguns, rifles, pistols, a decent number of dove, and an all around great time with some good people.
The weekend looked like it might have been a wash in all literal sense of the word. Friday night and Saturday morning was an ongoing rain event that dropped 2-5" of rain in the area. Saturday afternoon the rain came to a halt and the timing couldn't have been any better. We were able to get a few rounds of skeet in before we all went out in the field to put a minor dent in the Texas dove population. The final tally of birds in hand was 9 mostly due to the birds being spread out from the weather. We stayed out until dusk and then made the short drive back to the barn.
Upon arrival at the barn we found that my dad, the cook for the weekend, had carved up the brisket that had been on the pit for about 12 hours as well as 6 beer can chickens accompanied with a pot of beans. One thing about Texas country boys, WE CAN EAT! Within an hour all the food was devoured, cold beverages were being consumed, washers were being thrown, and college football was on the big screen. It was definitely the absolute best bachelor weekend I have ever been lucky enough to attend.
I'm dedicating this post to my brother. Jared, I hope that your marriage is filled with good times and an eternal bond with a wonderful woman. You are a hell of a man and I am thankful to be able to call you my brother. I am extremely proud of you, and I love you.
