A late season build, a timber frame carport. Got as far as the rafters set before the snow put a halt to the roof going on. Waiting for a dry clear day to finish it off.

12′ x 21′ carport.

Today was busy. BOW hunter education course with Thing 1 & Mo. We’ve been studying and preparing for two weeks now. There’s a lot of info to take in.

Study manual.

Thankfully we all passed the written and field test. Woo hoo.

My qualifying target. Shot pattern being the deciding factor.

These classes aren’t offered down here on the Kenai very often, usually in Anchorage. So not having to travel in winter is great!

The classes are hosted at Snowshoe Gun Club. They have a very nice facility. We had great instructors too.

It was nice to get a good refresher course, it’s been a minute since I took a hunter safety course. This one was more in depth than I remember. Experiencing the course with my girl was nice too. She did quite well and is a pretty dang good shot. Don’t mess with her.

I’m thankful for the opportunity to take the class, thanks to Mo for suggesting it. And grateful for the shared experience. Happy that I remembered far more than I forgot from all those years ago. Hunting and firearm safety is a lot like riding a bicycle, but it’s good having a refresher!

(BOW stands for Becoming an Outdoor Woman, it’s not an archery course)
