    Sorry for this guys I was out bow hunting this morning, didn’t realize the farm and one next to me were hosting a “fox/coyote hunt.” Kinda crazy, one of them yuppie things. They all had on formal attire, rode English, had about 30 dogs and not one actually hunted. They were walking the woods and tracks behind the horses. The lead fellow had a horn, when these skittish things saw me they about came out of their skin. They were so concerned. Certainly very unsocialized and I don’t believe much was expected of them.
    The young ladies riding along were pleasant and didn’t look too shabby even out of my one good eye. . All in all I saw few deer and they were scattered and running with all that chaos all morning.
    That wasn’t my vent but if I write too short LT gets upset. He counts the words and when short he informs me.
    So I get home and decide to cook breakfast, after I clean the dishes. My girl or her daughter normally do but I have time today. Her daughter had eaten earlier and left her stuff. Guess she got on something else but upon cleaning I was starting to get aggravated. When I cook eggs and want say leeks, peppers, mushrooms, cheese, etc etc I mix it all in pan. Cook and I’m done. Heck I’ve even eaten out of the pan. I know a little caveman but to me minimalist and efficient.
    One pan, one knife, one fork sometimes a plate. I don’t even use napkins, I wear long sleeves.
    Today I believe I used a few hundred gallons water and plenty of fuel to heat it.
    Apparently there was a cutting board used to cut peppers, and a knife, than she chopped up some stuff in a chopper thing and somehow involved another knife. another bowl to mix stuff, a plate for God knows what else. 2 spatulas, a bread plate. Butter knife. A few cups, mixing bowls, multiple sharp knives, spoons, forks, her breakfast plate, etc All to cook eggs? Is it me or should I stay out til she’s done? LT enough words?

    Forgot to mention, she burned all that stuff to a cast iron skillet. Had my grinder in there to work it off. It’s shiny now though

    Bowguy, kinda sounds like a medication or meditation probs to me, try to remember the fox hunters don't need your permission to be outdoors just like you don't there's, its not a yuppie thing fox/ coyote hunting was going on long before bow hunting became a fashion statement. My Dad told me along time ago ( when everything seems to be coming your way in life maybe your in the wrong lane) ......remember in life everybody may not wanna be just like you, JS Wilbur

    I wasn’t worrying bout the fox hunters. They’re not out too often. I just woulda hit somewhere else but they didn’t really worry me

    I’m just amazed how complicated people make breakfast out to be. She gets up 430 for a 7:00 bus ride to school.

    Bowguy: What was the name of that fox hunting pack? And if you don’t know, where was this located? I can probably tell you a bit about them. Some of the fox hunters have tremendous packs and can run down and kill coyotes and bobcats with regularity. Others are more of a “hunt to ride” social event. Either way, those folks spend a lot of money on their sport and are terrific supporters of hunting, especially hound hunting.

    It seemed more social. Vernon NJ, Warwick NY were the farms they were in but they’re not stationed here. A few times a year they come. Never heard a dog bark once the whole time I was there. They were nice people though. One guy said good morning w an English accent

    Sounds like she made one hell of an effort for a young lady. Haha. Perhaps she needs to sharpen up on the planning , and execution. I would take her deer hunting next week. Hit the deli for some Taylor Ham and cheese afterward.
    Off topic. Seeing any ticks in the woods yet ?

    I second the Taylors Ham. My sister was kind enough to send us a care package with 4s and 8s, and one of those big deli loafs. Real jelly donuts, crumb buns and (hopefully) some Boylans are on the next list.

    Bowguy: You saw the Windy Hollow Hunt. Their kennels are in Greenwood, NY, near Port Jervis. They hunt a 10 sq mile territory near Florida, NY, a 20 sq mile territory near Sussex, NJ, a 10 sq mile territory near Westtown, NY, and 10 sq miles near Vernon, NJ. Sounds like a nice country of preserved farm and dairy with old stone walls. They kennel about 40 foxhounds of different types. Their professional huntsman is Chris Burrowswood, who is probably English. They hunt red fox and coyote on Weds, Sat, and some Sundays from August thru early December and hunted just 25 times last year, so in my opinion they would not be one of the more serious packs. Some packs in the south hunt over 100 times per season, although the season is much longer there because snow does not stop them. Anyway, that’s who you saw.

    Thanks pretty interesting. Woulda been cool to be sitting watching em or at least hearing em chase. Woulda been like bleacher seats from a tree.
    The terrain actually is as you describe

    Have rode with the hunt a few times back in the 80’s. It was a long day , covering many miles. From blessing of the hounds , to corralling a few deer runners at dark. I sometimes check the hunts schedule , and get myself in an area to watch a bit. They hunt right through several of the properties I train my beagles on. I caught one of the hounds on a main rd last yr. All alone. He had a Garmin collar on , with phone number. I made a call , and within 15 mins , couple guys pulled up in a new BMW , loaded up that muddy wet hound into the back seat , and away they went. Lew Dobbs , some may recognize the name from Fox news , is a big horse guy. And his daughter. They live a mile from me. Own quite a bit of acreage. The hunts often originate from his farm.

    Interesting! Most who foxhunt in this manner are blessed with money. That money and influence will come in handy should we ever need to fight anti-hunting organizations. Mr. Dobbs is well liked by Mr. Trump.

    when i was playing music we booked a job in calloway gardens in columbus Ga. they were having what they called steeple chase. Some of the best looking horses i ever saw and they were jumpin fences rock walls ect behind a bunch of dogs. from all over the world----on irish horse came in skinned up pretty bad and the rider looked like he came outta a bump an dent sale. said horse fell over a rock wall. I would venture to say there was many millions of dollars present that day
