I have good memories of my first UKC hunt several years ago. It was a hunt at Imboden, Ark. And there was a big ruckus involving the cast that I was on and when things were getting heated up, Ernest Carnahan and I decided to come home. I didn’t figure that I did much good with my score and Ernest didn’t do any good at all so we left. About two weeks later the club notified me that I had won third place and where I could pick up my trophy. I drove all over North Arkansas to finally locate my trophy. The first of many that were won over the years.
The picture this time is a family job, my sisters and my mom. See if you can recognize any of them. Identification will be given another time.
If you haven’t put out a feeder for the first arriving hummingbirds better do so, as now they should be coming any day now. This warm weather we are having every other day or so will get the here.
