Birds of Prey at Cabela’s Reno, Nevada ~ 8 June 2013

Today was free fishing day here in Nevada…but we also were up for breaking another high heat record and figured the fish would tell us “screw you…it’s too hot to take your bait” so we went to Cabela’s just west of town. They were having a family outdoor day with fly fishing, shooting, and bow instruction; birds of prey; and snakes.

Just want to show you some of the beautiful girls we met today ~ They were going to have a flying demonstration, but it was too windy and WAY TOO HOT for them. These girls are employed as “pest control”!
