Did a Float Shuttle for my Son. Interesting learning his Pickup, oh it says 5 Speed but only has 4 Gears, you might have to play with the Key to get it to start, you have to slam the Door to get it to shut, forget that it broke just strap it shut. They went over night said Niangua was lower than they had ever seen it.

Ok I have lived in several States and traveled to most but never have thoroughly explored my Home State of Missouri.

Found I once again going to be hunting almost in Arkansas in Gainesville, MO. I've always enjoyed it down there but always thought not what I enjoy in the way of fishing.

My Son is in Forsyth and was talking about all the fishing there. Well I had been fishing many times upstream from him in Taneycomo by Branson for Trout. Thought ok I will check out fishing by him where Taneycomo and Bull Shoals come together. Wow very good fishing for whatever.

So last night I was thinking about Gainesville, checked about fishing. Norfolk and Bull Shoals Lakes along with all kinds of government land to hunt. I thought what the heck lets see if there is isolated land for sale at reasonable price. Found 40 acres.

Got to thinking in truth I have all I want here other than isolation but if I was younger wouldn't think twice about moving down there.

My wife fixes my Lunch when she isn't working. This morning she was getting ready to leave. Dear what you got in mind for my Lunch? Well you could thaw out some fish, you got Squirrel.

 

Well didn't want to thaw fish, Squirrels I had were Old didn't want to slow cook. Well rained last night and everyone has went home from Labor Day. I decided to go down catch couple Trout. On way down seen a nice Bobcat. There is 638 acres going up for Auction, don't see me getting money for it but would be nice.

 

Got over to the river, it was up but pretty clear. Caught my Lunch, good enough. Fried Trout, Salad and Baked Potato.

We went to Mansfield to Learn more Old Ways and try New stuff. Place was very isolated and beautiful view, very simple made me Homesick for our old place.

 

There was more Quail around there than I had seen in a long time. Use to have Setters and hunted all the time. Been years since I've even ate Quail :(

 

Old Wood Cook Stove, funny I was one showing how to use it.

They also had Composting Toilet using Wood Pellets, they said they worked good but I still like Green Sawdust. They showed how to use many Hand Tools including a variety of Scythes. Many Gardening ideas. Had variety of Foods including several Pickles that I had never had.

 

Oh if I was 40 years younger me and my wife would be living so much simpler. There is property down there but me and my wife are not able to go back to this life :(

Went down to Forsyth to visit my Son, went fishing at Taneycomo, he was saying there was a Slot Limit, I told him no it was up above Fall Creek. It was raining, long as it was they was biting. We caught a couple.

 

We went exploring looking for places to Camp. Seems it was going to cost a few $$ but found plenty of Camping.

 

Checked out Bull Shoals seems there hasn't been any water running all Summer so fishing had been slower than normal.

Cool and rainy today I thought I would Squirrel Hunt and scout for Deer and if it quit raining, shoot some Rifles.

 

Found a place in the Bottoms that look promising.

Went out this afternoon scouting for Deer and if I seen any Squirrels try to get them. I found some good Deer sign and seen one young fat Buck. Didn't see any Squirrels.Decided to go to the river see if I could catch any Trout, using Power Bait.

 

I never had seen the river so low. Guy come by in a Small Jon Boat said he was catching Goggle Eye. Didn't get any Trout decided to go, was reeling in realized I had a Fish on.
