Erik has really been adding to his deck of man cards lately. Not too long ago he went with a family friend to a shooting retreat where he won a new fishing rod and his friend gave him a shot gun. Erik Has never owned a gun before and didn't currently have a rod. Since the retreat he has been talking frequently about getting an opportunity to use them.
One of Erik's friends, Nate, has an uncle that has a farm with a couple of ponds and a barn they converted into essentially a lake house. Well Erik and Nate went up to the farm on Friday for what they were jokingly calling 'Man Camp'. Erik was really excited to go on this trip with Nate and 'Man Camp' consisted of fishing for their dinner, shooting guns, Morel hunting, and lots of beer.
This is one of the beautiful Bass Erik caught. They let this big one go, but both guys were real bullies and several smaller ones weren't so lucky.
Erik brought both some Bass and Morel mushrooms home. I haven't had tried either and I'm excited about the fish, but not so much the mushrooms. They look like little brains...its kinda creepy. I guess you bread and fry them, but we'll see how this turns out. I'll let you know if I survive.
