I was involved in a good discussion yesterday and the topic was about the size of our hunting camp and how big it has gotten.  How some have decided to not go hunting because of it.  How it used to be a really fun time when it was a much, much smaller sized camp, and everyone of us would ride together in one vehicle etc.  All of the points brought up were good ones and every one had their opinions of today’s camp size verses long ago’s camp size.

These are my thoughts on the subject.

Back in the days when I was allowed to tag along and attend the annual hunting event that happened the closest Saturday to October 20th each year, it was always “our family” who was camped.  Of course Dad was always there, and when I was first allowed to go, at the age of 10, Mom would be there and I suppose she was the “baby sitter” for me, and later for my younger brother when he turned 10.  I was allowed to go and camp, but not go out in the field with the guys with the guns.  That did not happen until I was 12 and old enough to know things about being quiet and keeping up with the adults and helping in a big way with camp chores, setting camp up and helping to break camp when the hunt was over.

Those were some great times!  Dad, Mom, all my brothers (at least those who were not in the military at the time), brother in law, Roy.  Yes, those were the “Good Old Days”!  We had a great time.  Laughed, told jokes, played some cards and those old enough even had a few beers and maybe even a whiskey or two.  Fun was had by all.  AND occasionally they would even bag a deer or two.  Back then they could shoot bucks or does and dad always said a doe was better tasting than a stinking old buck.  But he sure would shoot at the buck if both of the sexes were running past.

Suddenly I found myself 12 years old!  Wow, how fast time goes by.  My brother Jack has found himself girlfriend and they have married!  So has my oldest brother!  They can’t go hunting without their spouses…and so, the camp grew by two more people.  Special accommodations made for additional things to take to camp and setup.  And of course there are some friends of the family members who would also like to tag along with us.  All were welcomed, and we still had a great time and even bagged a deer or two.

Then my brothers with their new spouses, had babies of their own, and that disrupted the ladies from going to deer camp.  They had to stay home with the little ones, as it was the man’s duty to go to deer camp every year and try to fill the freezer with good old venison.

Now let’s skip forward to after my military time.

Back home and the tradition of hunting has not faded.  Memories of the past years hunts continually running through my head.  My year begins and ends with the deer hunting season.  Fall is a wonderful transition from the heat of the summer to the cold of winter.  I can sense the hunt for weeks before it actually gets here.  Dustings of early snows that will long be melted before the hunt begins are additional reminders of what lies ahead for the hunt and it all begs to be drawn into the soul of the hunter and prepare him for the upcoming event.

But, there is something that has changed about the camp since I last was here.  Dad is surely there.  Mom is not.  She has no desire to go and would rather stay at home and prepare a good meal for the returning hunters and her always lovely apple dumpings for desert!  MMMMM.  Ok, mom stay at home and we will bring back some hearts and liver and a freezer full of meat!  The camp now includes the brothers (5), brother in law, Roy, and his son (who just turned 13), the best friend of my younger brother (who not only went to school with him, but also enlisted in the Army Airborne with him), AND two sons (who are now 11 and 12 years old) of one of my brothers.

Bigger camp, more stuff to pack, more tents, campers and all of the other conveniences necessary to help our stay in the mountains such a pleasure.  And we had a great time making jokes, laughing and having a wonderful time.  All the while sacrificing ourselves to the ever daunting task of providing meat for the family tables.  And occasionally one or more of us would bag a deer.

As the years continued to go by at an alarming rate, I too married and had two sons.  All of us found ourselves married and with families.  Our young brides wanted to attend the deer camp they had heard so many wonderful stories of.  And until they had children they came and joined in the hunting fun and laughed and joked right along with the rest.  It was fun!  And occasionally someone would bag a deer.

More gear had to be packed.  Additional campers, trailers, tents, trucks and added expenses had to be accounted for to make our stay more comfortable.  And we added those things without a thought because it was a fact that our camp had grown.  As the older ones decided they either had health issues that would prevent them from going on the hunt, or they passed on, their voids at the camp were noticed and they were missed very much, but we were adding more people to the camp than were dropping off the other end.  And still, the hunting season continued to begin and end my year.

Much later in my life, my children attained the age where they were allowed to go to camp.  Add two more.  And then my younger brothers son got to the age as well.  Add one more.  Suddenly, the two sons from my middle aged brother had children who reached that wonderful age and could attend as well.  Add more!

Suddenly with 200,000 plus hunters all on the mountain at the same time, killing deer like there was no tomorrow, the State of Utah decided there was enough interest in deer hunting for those who would rather hunt with a bow, or a muzzleloader to split up the deer hunt into three different seasons.  Before:  You could hunt archery and if you were unsuccessful at bagging your “buck only” deer, you could go on the rifle hunt and try your luck there.  After:  You have to decide which type of hunting weapon you wish to use and you can only hunt during that season with that weapon.

Since there were four of us who liked to hunt with the muzzleloaders, we chose to hunt that hunt.  At first we were restricted to specific areas of the state, and we hunted those areas.  And when they finally opened up the muzzleloader hunt to statewide, we began to explore different areas, even clear down to the Moab area.  Those were very fun times.  But never any more fun than the camp of old, with so very many people.  And we hunted, and camped and laughed and joked and occasionally someone would bag a deer.

And so the word spread that the four of us were having SO much more fun than those still going on the general rifle hunt, they too began to purchase muzzleloaders and joining in our season.  Couple that with the rendezvous and the fun we were having at those events and our circle of friends grew and grew.  Our stories of the hunt from the past year gained a hearty interest in our new found friends and soon they too wanted to meet up with us at our camp.  And we welcomed them in and we had fun, and laughed and joked and occasionally would even bag a deer.

From four, to eight, to twelve, to sixteen, to twenty, to twenty six.  And still we have fun and laugh and joke and kid around with each other.  And the camp is very, very large indeed and accommodations have to be made for more trailers, campers, tents, trucks, atv’s, ez-ups, common cooking facilities, etc.   And a nearly formal meeting must be held ahead of the hunt in order to make sure everyone who is going to be at the camp, knows when the bulk are leaving their home towns, who is bringing what, who is riding with whom, who is sleeping in who’s camper, trailer or tent, who is bringing atv’s, who is bringing parts of the camp that we only need one or two of, what the planned meals will be.  And we have fun and we laugh and joke and talk about hunts of the past.  And we joke about who will shoot just any old buck and who is going to hold out for a big monster buck.  And the meeting turns out to be a mini rendezvous.

Times have changed a great deal.  We can get from our homes to our preferred camping area in pretty much less than three hours.  We prefer to camp over rather than commute to and from the hunting area each day.  If we choose to leave camp and hunt a different area than immediately around the camp, we can do that and still be back at camp just after dark.  We have choices every day as to who we would like to hunt with that day.  Who would like to ride with who when they leave camp.  If we choose not to hunt on any given day, we can choose to sleep in and not go hunting.  Of course the camp size does not have anything to do with that choice anyway.

Our camp has gone from a “traditionally MAN only” camp (which was before my time to go), to a camp with young children, old men, women who hunt, women who are just camping, men of all ages and abilities and unwelcomed dogs.  We had no idea there were going to be dogs in camp until they arrived. Oh and by the way, the men try their best to control language and actions around the children and women, but those who bring their children and those women who choose to come into our camp are very welcome, but must understand they are going to hear and see some “man things” and that is something they must accept.  If they don’t have a tolerance for that, they are welcome to go elsewhere.

Most of us prefer to ride around the back roads of the mountains and try to spot a buck within range.  We see some very wonderful scenery,  lots of different animals from squirrels to moose, and occasionally someone in the vehicle will bag a buck.  There are many vehicles that are loaded up in the early dark hours of the morning and every one heads off in a direction the majority of the occupants think might be the best direction to get them into a buck or two.  Some prefer to hunt alone and will hike from camp.  Others will drive an atv to a point and walk from there.  All in all, if you want to go hunting and do not want to stay in camp, there is room for you and your gear in someone’s vehicle.

The vehicle occupants have good conversations, eat snacks, drink their cold drinks, laugh, joke and in general have a great day in the field.  When they are back at camp, everyone in camp wants to hear their story.  And so, each person around the camp fire has a chance to tell their story of the day.  What they saw, what they shot at and anything else they want to share.  These daily stories tend to tell everyone that perhaps the majority of the bucks being seen are up the canyon from camp, or down the canyon from camp or not in this canyon at all.  Or perhaps there are bucks everywhere and if you just happened not to see one that day, well maybe you were being too noisy in your stalk.

Our desire to have a “big buck contest” can go on whether with one or two members of the camp, or every hunter in camp.  And we laugh and joke and make good times of it all.  The kill jug is shared by those who did in fact bring a buck back to camp, and for those in the contest, only one will win the money!  Just like in a camp of two people.

What would I change about our camp if I could impose rules?

I would like to think that everyone in the camp would share with those who drive the vehicles.  Share with the gas and oil being used.  Share driving if the vehicle owner is open to that being done.  Take turns being in the front or in the back of the vehicle, in the middle of the back seat, wherever they ride.  Mix it up.

Toss in their cooler full of drinks and daily food stuffs to share with all of those riding in that vehicle that day.

Offer up their vehicle to take the hunters around the hills.

Ride in different vehicles from day to day, so that we can better get to know each of us in camp.  It’s all too easy to get into the habit of only riding in “so and sos vehicle”, year after year.

Offer to be the one going into the brush to try and push out a buck instead of always being out on the open hill waiting to get the shot.

If someone decides, for instance, they would like to stay at a watering hole until dark, that someone else would offer up to share that experience with them, so they are not alone.  Of course that would have to be up to the original persons digression to accept company.  And if so allowed, the person offering to accompany them would listen to and follow the “rules” laid down by the original person.

I would like to see a group of hunters hunt in the same large draw or canyon at least once during the hunt.  By that I mean, everyone spread out either at the bottom or the top of a large expanse of pines, quakies or whatever, and hunt slowly through that canyon.  Stopping often and being as quiet as they can as they hunt.  Hunters accepting this challenge would most likely be 200 yards apart the whole time.

And lastly, I would like to see NO DOGS ALLOWED in camp.  None!  Zip!  Lap dog or Doberman!  NO DOGS!

Is our camp a special camp?  Not in the least!  We have a camp like all the millions of other camps across this nation.  Some camps have to lease the ground upon which they hunt.  They have rules that must be followed or they are asked to leave.  They have to apply for the stands or areas they have to hunt in.  They have to share in what they have and so they may only get to hunt in one particular stand on one morning or evening just once during the entire season.  They might not even with their camp lottery and not get to hunt at all during the season.   Do they enjoy each others company like we think we do?  Yes!  They have fun, make jokes, pull pranks, drink beer and whiskey, play cards and gamble and in general, have a wonderful time at deer camp, and occasionally one of them will bag a deer.

Others share what we share out here in the West…Public Ground!  We can come and go to camping and hunting areas pretty much as we please.  We will run into small and large camps, much like our own as we are traveling around looking for that buck.  Are their camps growing or shrinking?  I’d bet they are growing as well.  Are they having fun, making jokes, pulling pranks, drinking and having a good time?  Yes!  And they occasionally bag a deer.

What I am seeing with our own camp is the joining of several deer camps in one location.  And because not everyone of those camps has all the necessary luxuries to make their stay in the wilds all that comfortable, they are allowed to share with those that do have the equipment.  If I examine our camp from last year (2010), I see ten different familes all joined in the fun as one big camp.  Some of these families consist of just one member from their family.  Others share brothers from the same family.  Still others are dad and son teams.  Others again are brother and sister, husband and wife teams.  To say our camp is a large one is an understatement.  To say that we need to downsize….I say no way!

We are there for a common purpose….kill a deer…NO!  Have fun!  YES!  Enjoy each others company, share that common purpose and help each of us bag a deer while we are at it.

But, let’s leave the dogs at home!

P.S.—Not you Dry Dog!  Camp is nothing without you there!

The WebMD website has the following “what not to feed your dog” tips.  Some of the foods I normally feed my dog, like a good steak bone, are likely not good for the dog.  You will read about it when that tip comes up, but it is the fat and the slivering of the bone that could kill your dog.  Another one  was grapes and raisins!  NEVER feed your dog those things…it WILL kill your dog!  Avocados is another no-no.  Read on…these are from the WebMD web site:


No matter how good you think the guacamole is, you shouldn’t give it to your dog. Avocados contain a substance called persin. It’s harmless for humans who aren’t allergic. But large amounts can be toxic to dogs. If you happen to be growing avocados at home, keep your dog away from the plants. Persin is in the leaves, seed, and bark, as well as in the fruit.


Beer, liquor, wine, foods containing alcohol – none of it’s good for your dog. That’s because alcohol has the same effect on a dog’s liver and brain that it has on humans. But it takes far less to do its damage. Just a little can cause vomiting, diarrhea, central nervous system depression, problems with coordination, difficulty breathing, coma, even death. And the smaller the dog, the greater the effect.

Onions and Garlic

Onions and garlic in all forms — powdered, raw, cooked, or dehydrated — can destroy a dog’s red blood cells, leading to anemia. That can happen even with the onion powder found in some baby food. An occasional small dose is probably OK. But just eating a large quantity once or eating smaller amounts regularly can cause poisoning. Symptoms of anemia include weakness, vomiting, little interest in food, dullness, and breathlessness.

Coffee, Tea, and Other Caffeine

Caffeine in large enough quantities can be fatal for a dog. And, there is no antidote. Symptoms of caffeine poisoning include restlessness, rapid breathing, heart palpitations, muscle tremors, fits, and bleeding. In addition to tea and coffee – including beans and grounds – caffeine can be found in cocoa, chocolate, colas, and stimulant drinks such as Red Bull. It’s also in some cold medicines and pain killers.

Grapes and Raisins

Grapes and raisins have often been used as treats for dogs. But it’s not a good idea. Although it isn’t clear why, grapes and raisins can cause kidney failure in dogs. And just a small amount can make a dog ill. Repeated vomiting is an early sign. Within a day, the dog will become lethargic and depressed. The best prevention is to keep grapes and raisins off counters and other places your dog can reach.

Milk and Other Dairy Products

On a hot day, it may be tempting to share your ice cream cone with your dog. But if your dog could, it would thank you for not doing so. Milk and milk-based products can cause diarrhea and other digestive upset as well as set up food allergies (which often manifest as itchiness).

Macadamia Nuts

Dogs should not eat macadamia nuts or foods containing macadamia nuts because they can be fatal. As few as 6 raw or roasted macadamia nuts can make a dog ill. Symptoms of poisoning include muscle tremors, weakness or paralysis of the hindquarters, vomiting, elevated body temperature, and rapid heart rate. Eating chocolate with the nuts will make symptoms worse, possibly leading to death.

Candy and Gum

Candy, gum, toothpaste, baked goods, and some diet foods are sweetened with xylitol. Xylitol can cause an increase in the insulin circulating through your dog’s body. That can cause your dog’s blood sugar to drop and can also cause liver failure. Initial symptoms include vomiting, lethargy, and loss of coordination. Eventually, the dog may have seizures. Liver failure can occur within just a few days.


Most people know that chocolate is bad for dogs. The toxic agent in chocolate is theobromine. It’s in all kinds of chocolate, even white chocolate. The most dangerous kinds, though, are dark chocolate, chocolate mulch, and unsweetened baking chocolate. Eating chocolate, even just licking the icing bowl, can cause a dog to vomit, have diarrhea, and be excessively thirsty. It can also cause abnormal heart rhythm, tremors, seizures, and death.

Fat Trimmings and Bones

Table scraps often contain meat fat that a human didn’t eat and bones. Both are dangerous for dogs. Fat trimmed from meat, both cooked and uncooked, can cause pancreatitis in dogs. And, although it seems natural to give a dog a bone, a dog can choke on it. Bones can also splinter and cause an obstruction or lacerations of your dog’s digestive system. It’s best to just forget about the doggie bag.

Persimmons, Peaches, and Plums

The problem with these fruits is the seeds or pits. The seeds from persimmons can cause inflammation of the small intestine in dogs. They can also cause intestinal obstruction. Obstruction is also a possibility if a dog eats the pit from a peach or plum. Plus, peach and plum pits contain cyanide, which is poisonous to both humans and dogs. The difference is humans know not to eat them. Dogs don’t.

Raw Eggs

There are two problems with giving your dog raw eggs. The first is the possibility of food poisoning from bacteria like Salmonella or E. coli. The second is that an enzyme in raw eggs interferes with the absorption of a particular B vitamin. This can cause skin problems as well as problems with your dog’s coat if raw eggs are fed for a long time.

Raw Meat and Fish

Raw meat and raw fish, like raw eggs, can contain bacteria that causes food poisoning. In addition, certain kinds of fish such as salmon, trout, shad, or sturgeon can contain a parasite that causes “fish disease.” If not treated, the disease can be fatal within 2 weeks. The first signs of illness are vomiting, fever, and big lymph nodes. Thoroughly cooking the fish will kill the parasite and protect your dog.


It’s not a good idea to share salty foods like chips or pretzels with your dog. Eating too much salt can cause excessive thirst and urination and lead to sodium ion poisoning. Symptoms of too much salt include vomiting, diarrhea, depression, tremors, elevated body temperature, and seizures. It may even cause death.

Sugary Foods and Drinks

Too much sugar can do the same thing to dogs that it does to humans. It can lead to obesity, dental problems, and even diabetes.

Yeast Dough

Before it’s baked, bread dough needs to rise. And, that’s exactly what it would do in your dog’s stomach if your dog ate it. As it swells inside, the dough can stretch the dog’s abdomen and cause severe pain. In addition, when the yeast ferments the dough to make it rise, it produces alcohol that can lead to alcohol poisoning.

Your Medicine

Reaction to a drug commonly prescribed for humans is the most common cause of poisoning in dogs. Just as you would do for your children, keep all medicines out of your dog’s reach. And, never give your dog any over-the-counter medicine unless told to do so by your vet. Ingredients such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen are common in pain relievers and cold medicine. And, they can be deadly for your dog.

Kitchen Pantry: No Dogs Allowed

Many other items commonly found on kitchen shelves can harm your dog. For instance, baking powder and baking soda are both highly toxic. So are nutmeg and other spices. Keeping food items high enough to be out of your dog’s reach and keeping pantry doors closed will help protect your dog from serious food-related illness.

If Your Dog Eats What It Shouldn’t

Dogs explore with their mouth. And, no matter how cautious you are, it’s possible your dog can find and swallow what it shouldn’t. It’s a smart idea to always keep the number of your local vet, the closest emergency clinic, and the ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center – (888) 426-4435 – where you know you can find it in an emergency. And, if you think your dog has consumed something that’s toxic, call for emergency help at once.

Today, Aug. 20, 2011, starts the Utah big game hunting season.  The bow hunt began today at first light!  Next will be the dove hunt and then all of the other hunts to include, grouse, elk, duck, pheasant and the rest of the deer hunts.

I’m pretty excited about this years hunts, as usual.  There is something to be said about the muzzle loader hunt that just plain get me all giddy.  I’ve always said it begins and ends my year.  AND as a bonus, sometimes I even tag a buck and that puts some meat in the freezer and a new batch of jerky for everyone to enjoy.

Speaking of which, I’m out of jerky…does anyone have some extra meat from last year they would like to donate?  I’ll make you a deal…you provide the meat, and I’ll make the jerky and give you half!

Rules for Rendering Hand Salute of U.S. Flag

Law Now Allows Retirees and Vets to Salute FlagTraditionally, members of the nation’s veterans service organizations have rendered the hand-salute during the national anthem and at events involving the national flag only while wearing their organization’s official head-gear.The National Defense Authorization Act of 2008 contained an amendment to allow un-uniformed service members, military retirees, and veterans to render a hand salute during the hoisting, lowering, or passing of the U.S. flag.A later amendment further authorized hand-salutes during the national anthem by veterans and out-of-uniform military personnel. This was included in the Defense Authorization Act of 2009, which President Bush signed on Oct. 14, 2008.

Here is the actual text from the law:


Section 301(b)(1) of title 36, United States Code, is amended by
striking subparagraphs (A) through (C) and inserting the following new
“(A) individuals in uniform should give the
military salute at the first note of the anthem and
maintain that position until the last note;
“(B) members of the Armed Forces and veterans who
are present but not in uniform may render the military
salute in the manner provided for individuals in
uniform; and
“(C) all other persons present should face the flag
and stand at attention with their right hand over the
heart, and men not in uniform, if applicable, should
remove their headdress with their right hand and hold it
at the left shoulder, the hand being over the heart;
Note: Part (C) applies to those not in the military and non-veterans. The phrase “men not in uniform” refers to civil service uniforms like police, fire fighters, and letter carriers –  non-veteran civil servants who might normally render a salute while in uniform.

I found this site several years ago, when they only had 3 cameras in operation.  They have several more now and it is fun to go on and play with the views.  You can control the camera and look around the place, zoom up closer etc.  It is fun.

One time about two years ago I was controlling the camera at Jordanell State Park.  It was winter time and there was snow on the ground.  The lake had not frozen yet and a guy drives down the boat ramp in his truck.  Sits there for a minute looking at the water.  Then he gets out, walks around to the “camera side” of the truck (Passenger side in this case) and takes a pee.  WHAAAAA!

I wrote the guys that have control of the website and told them about it and suggested that maybe they should post signs at these locations that a real live time camera is working in the area.   I got no response back from them.

Anyway, it’s still a fun site.  The one at Bear Lake is on top of a building so you can really see who is sitting outside on the deck.  Maybe your significant other is up their with their “close” friend!  You never know.

I have a couple of ways to track general viewer information on  One way has all kinds of stats and graphs and stuff that doesn’t make a lot of sense to me.  I’m sure if I studied it I could figure it all out, but for now it is just stuff.

The other way only has a few things that are being tracked and it makes a whole lot more sense to me.

One very interesting thing is that 62% of you reading my postings are women!  The other part of the 100% are men (34%).  Since most of what I post is non-sense stuff like Sir Butt and the rest is usually related to hunting or muzzleloading/mountain man stuff, I have to ask….Ladies, what would you like to be reading on this site?

I took this article from a posting on American Family website.  I have modified it to make it more family friendly.

Remember the past two summers when I was obsessed with killing the damn yucca plant in my front yard?

I actually managed to kill it.  Since it got warm this spring, I have been anxiously checking and rechecking the area where it grew before to make sure no rogue sprouts are coming back.  Since it is August, I think I am actually safe.

I keep getting search engine hits for “How to Kill a Yucca Plant” so I am posting this as a public service message.

Things that did NOT kill the yucca plant:

  • Squirting it with Round Up.


  • Chopping off all the leaves, spraying it with bee killer (there was a beehive in its roots), then painting the leaf stumps with Round Up.


  • Mixing Round Up with oil then spraying it on the leaves.


  • Digging out a 10 foot by 5 foot area 2 feet deep, throwing out hundreds of gallons of roots and dirt, then filling the hole with an entire bottle of total vegetation kill.   (While this didn’t kill the yucca, two years later we still can’t get grass to grow in the area of the yard near the former hole.  Weeds yes, grass no.)


  • Digging a bigger hole and using more random plant killing chemicals.


  • Filling the hole with water, then covering it with a tarp for a month in an attempt to drown the yucca and periodically re-filling the nasty moldy hole with more water.


  • Setting the hole on fire.


How did I finally kill the yucca?

1.) I let one of the sprouts grow until the leaves were about as long as my forearm.

2.) I gathered them up into a bunch and held them together with a rubber band.

3.) I cut the tops off the leaves with scissors.

4.)  Filled a large plastic cup with Round UP (possibly the long-term plant killing kind, I can’t remember)

5.) Submerged the leaf-tops several inches deep in Round UP.

6) Weighed them down with a big rock so they would stay in the cup.

7.) Covered the cup with plastic so rain wouldn’t dilute the RoundUp.  (Make sure that some of the leaves are exposed to sunlight because photosynthesis is how RoundUP works, I think).

8.) Waited about a month.

Then the MOTHER F*#$E! died.

And that, my friends, is how you kill a yucca plant.



PS. Would you believe how much money we spend on organic groceries and on my organic garden and still I unloaded a huge toxic payload of chemicals in the front yard to kill that plant?  I was a woman obsessed.

This link is to a video put out on  It shows you how to process the meat from a bit game animal you just shot without removing the insides from the animal.  You end up losing the heart and liver, but everything else goes home with you!
