NZ Journal Day 12, 13 & 14:

Day 12; Started out the day with a good stiff pot of coffee; who needs hair anyway? Besides everyone tells me I could use it as a degreasing agent, since I’m going to clean the guns today. Why not?
By early afternoon the guns that were to be cleaned and packed were. I started getting supper started. First I made the pound cake and prepped the liver. I like my liver (fresh not frozen) sliced fairly thin, let’s say 3/8 to 1/2 of an inch thick, lay it out on a towel to draw some of the moisture out to keep it firm while cooking. If you use frozen liver you won’t need to draw the moisture just thaw, slice and cook. I fry it in butter with onions and a couple of whole garlic cloves. Well I think it is the best thing since butter found bread. The meal was a success; Cassy even enjoyed it, but passed on my coffee. When I served the pound cake desert I simply zapped a loaf until warm, cut into 1 inch slices, top with vanilla ice cream, drizzled with warm caramel sauce and sprinkled with chocolate chips. There was total silence while it was being consumed. Bomber came over to me after he finished his gave me a hug kissed the top of my head and asked Chaz, “Can we keep this yank boss? He’s an OK shot, but he can bloody well cook.” We finished the evening just being a bunch of really good friends enjoying each other.

Day 13; I decided to take an upland photo safari. While walking I crested a hill and on the next hill over I saw a large group of adolescent elk bulls (pic attached). We just stared at each other for a while I lost the staring contest because I wanted to keep moving. After taking several other scenery shots I went back for lunch. There was no interest in doing any more hunting so I cleaned up the remaining guns and packed them up. Chaz came in and told us there were a pair of stag bulls goin’ at it down in the lower pasture and to get a wiggle on if we wanted to see it. These brutes were completely oblivious to anything around them, only interested in fighting. What a magnificent pair they were (pic attached). We finished our last night at the chalet packing and squaring the gear. We’ve been invited to breakfast at the main lodge before heading to the plane.

Day 14; Breakfast was a buffet with enough food to feed an entire company of men. Chaz told us we were the best prepared and equipped group of yanks he has had in a long time. It was a true pleasure to entertain, get to know and become friends with. As a group we told him we had completely enjoyed our experience here with him and his crew. Cassy had the day off so we gave our gratitude envelope for her to him. We all felt bad that we couldn’t say our goodbye’s in person. Chaz said she hates them anyway but he knew she really enjoyed taking care of us. Well that is about it. We loaded up all the gear and we were off for the trip home. The flight itself was short for me I slept most of it away. Arrived back here in WI late Saturday night and was ready to be home. Bingo was so happy to see me. For the first time in her life sat on my lap, if only Mrs. DH would have been that thrilled. Just kidding, she was Bingo had to get down. Bingo has not left my side; I guess she’ll never let me out of her sight again.

Today Monday 4/8; I am both glad and sad to be home. I’m sad because finally the reality of no more cows has set in. I’m glad because I know they went to a good family farmer and not a factory type operation.

Gun Geek! Proud of it!
