A friend of mine, a keen hunter, said a few days
ago that "There are too few weekends in the autumn!". I am tempted to agree with
him even though I am for the time being free to do what I want. Still I cant
fish with nets during the mid-weeks since I have no-one who can row. Maud works
during daytime when we still have some light and I could get the nets out alone,
no problem. However the sea-bottom outside our house is full of old twiggs, logs
and stones and when taking up the nets there must be full control of the boat,
otherwise the nets will stick to something and be damaged.
For the moment I cant try to shoot roe-deer since
we are going to the Gotland island to hunt pheasants next Friday and if I shoot
a deer now it would have to hang until next tuesday in my workshop and it is too
warm there. My old second hand fridge that I used for hanging game broke down
and I have not found another of suitable height. One action hampers another
action and in the end you shoot less than you could do if there was more
weekends in the autumn!
Last Friday to Sunday we had one of Mauds hunting
pals at visit. She has two ES bitches, mother and daughter, just like us. Just
like Foxy and Briz they seemed to be from different worlds. Mothers mentally
strong and in all ways pleasant. Daughters have a peculiar mentality and are
difficult to understand.
So what is most similar with the two
daughters? Well, both of them have Swedish bred mothers and Norwegian FTCHs as
I have strongly started to doubt field trials as a
mean of select breeding animals!
