And you just wipe it clean. There we go, little bit of fish left,Chris couldn’t quite eat his whole fishand the other threebones from all the fishand their heads are in there. Put the soup on to simmerso when we come back laterwe got food!Remember boys and girls it’simportant to brush your teeth,even when you’re out in the woods!I like to clean my teeth withRedmans Earthpaste Toothpaste!I like this stuff. They sent me like a lifetime supply!After seeing me on a loan. Ahhh, nothin’ like clean teeth,and right after this I’mgonna go down to the river,wash my nasty clothes,they are covered in likecatfish blood and everything. My shamogs filthy!Do that, take a dip myself,see if I can’t cool offand by the time I’m done takin’ that dip,the temperature should be droppin’and should only be mildlyextremely sweaty tonightinstead of extremely,extremely sweaty tonightwhen I get into my bed . And that will make for better sleeping! Here’s the creek, time toget some clothes washed,the day is just startin’to cool off as you can seethe sun is not overhead anymore. And oh, this’ll be nice, get rinsed off. This looks like a nice spot as any!Little on the murky side. Been doin’ everythingall day in slow motion,it’s been so hot!This’ll be nice takin’ a little dip!Uch, I don’t know if thecamera will pick it uphow gross this thing is. Got little bits of likefish stuck on there!Uch, cause that’s what wetransported the fish in last nightmy pants are literally a different color,they’re so filthy!Like everything justfeels, look at it all,like cactus, the redcactus juice and bloodfrom the catfish, mostlythe red cactus juicestaining ’em and stuff. Like I was just gettin’so dirty last night,I just kinda gave up,I was like here, my shirt can be a towel!And wipe my hands on it. In the river!Socks!In the river! White blesser, in the river!Oh, uhhh! Woooohoooo!Oh, does that feel good!Oh, I feel good!Nothin’ like some clean clothes!Nothin’ like a bath for your birthday!I’ll have to do thisagain next year . Oh, somethin’ touched my foot,somethin’ touched my foot! Wooohoooo!Oh that feels good!Uh, I don’t know why Ididn’t do this sooner!That was epic!That was so nice. I’m gonna have to come downto this every other dayor somthin’, that was, it’s been so hot,I hope it cools back off. I do not like the heat,I am not a fan of thehot hot days like this. Time to have some dinner,see how that head soup is lookin’ oh yeah,that looks good!Some juicy, look how rich that broth is,that is super rich!Got myself a cup of that,then we’re gonna headdown, do some more fishin’!So we haven’t been successfulwith any of these hard trapsbut we moved this one, always movin’ ’em,always tryin’ again and again in new waysand putting a log againstit here helps it causethe first one that we lost, andfailed to catch something init never went off, theyroll it on its side sothey don’t bump the trigger,and then emptied it. Alright so there’s a raccoon, I treed him. But,if I was to shoot him, hewould fall straight intothe river, I don’t knowexactly what to do here. Maybe if we go fishing, he’llcome down and I can treehim in a tree that wouldallow me to shoot him and notlose him, I don’t wannajust be wasteful and cruel. So I think we’re gonna have toleave these ones be for now. Darn!I was hungry for somethin’ big. I can’t tell if there’ssomethin’ on our lines or not,it almost looks like oneof ’ems got tension on ’em. Ooop, there’s a gar rising!That’s a good sign. Maybe we’ll get a chance touse the sling bow tonight. Oh, there’s another one!- There’s abig gar right up there. – Oh and one right close!- Maybe it’s becausewe had a catfish and it ate itso now they’re circling andwaiting for more opportunities!- There’s a big garsitting right there by the bank, man!I need my sling bowbefore we come down here. I went back up the trailto check on those raccoonsto see if they had come down,by the time I joined Christhere was no sign ofthat gar that was therewhen we first arrived. I rebaited the night lines,we messed around for aboutthree hours, I walked upthe river a little waysand there was nothin’ doin’. Packin’ it in, try again another time. Excuse me,that was a long, long walk. I don’t know, what was itlike three miles down there tothe river and all that!I feel like we made a big mistake,we showed up and we’re likeoh, look at all the gars,set my camera up,and then turned around,and when we both got downthere and we were all set up,and checked the catfish linesto see that they were empty,it’s like the gar that were risingall over the place were gone!Think you gotta like show up to the place,and sneak up on it, and attack!So, lots of amazing wildlife tonight. Raccoons, gar, everything, but just,we were just a minutelate and just behind,I even took a shot at a rabbitand I hit right where he wasbut he like jumped at the arrow. Should’ve had the slingshot out. I feel like I’m gettingreally close to understandingthis place and being able towin on all frontsyou know with the traps,the everything, so I reallylook forward to tomorrow. I think we’re gonnastart nailin’ things downand really gettin’ on topof this whole adventure!See ya guys, see ya guys next time,thanks for watchin’!Fowler out!
