This past weekend Greg and I went hunting in Wisconsin! It was the perfect little weekend getaway. We drove up on Saturday evening, stayed at the Lake Lily Resort, and got to hunt some place we have never been to before together.

Our hunting trip started Saturday night with our drive to Wisconsin (we always love being in the car together), a quick trip to the Walmart in Kenosha for a hunting license, and some nachos, wings, and grilled shrimp when we arrived at Lily Lake! We also got to snuggle up in our hotel room before our 5 am wake up call to go hunt.

Greg researched this hunting spot a ton. We totally thought that it was going to be the perfect spot to hunt, and we were hoping to see tons of birds! We were also totally prepared with our new wadders and decoys, but when we got to our spot the lake was dried up! It just made me think of The Notebook, where Noah tells the story of how this lake froze, and the birds flew off with it! I think the birds must have flown off with this lake last year lol. Luckily, we were able to set up our decoys in a flooded field and spot a few birds.

My favorite part about being in Wisconsin was running into the different hunters. Hunting is such a big sport in Wisconsin. In just a few hours while we were watching for ducks and geese, we ran into a group of deer hunters and two groups of pheasant hunters! We also met the cutest little hunting puppy named Boo.

Hunting in new places is so fun and totally feels like a mini vacation. We are so excited to take more trips this year!
