Scott Hogsed Memorial Day 5

The Coon hunting lesson was interesting. They have regular competitions where points are awarded for catching raccoons ("coons"). He showed us all the equipment one needs to hun coons: Hound Dogs ("dowgs"), lights ("larts"), boots, snake chaps, chains for dowg, tracking collar and a hat. It was interesting hearing how it was all organised.
Then we had the fishing where the pond (which we would call a dam in Australia) had been filled with fish and lots of fishing rods were ready for use. The worm fell off James' rod, so here he is concentrating on tying a poor worm into a knot onto the hook.
