Forgiveness,  not permission. Just saying.

Good point. I know she won't get up there on a ladder to take it down...   :bdid:

As a responsible parent I can assure you that your life will only get busier as the child ages.
Make to most of your hunt.
No regrets.
Feed that family. :)

This is what I'm expecting, and as much as I like my free time, I'm excited for it. I can't wait to see what this little guy grows into and the places that he'll go. I just hope to keep him steered in the right direction and well supplied with game meat  :) 

We just ate our last pack of steaks this week. Still have some burger left. The wife is finally experiencing a meat crisis for the first time since we've been married, and that was 2 deer we ate!

Thanks for sharing, can't wait to hear more of the story!
My interpretation of the rules are open to interpretation.
Once I thought I was wrong but I was mistaken.

Went out and did a little shooting today to find out how the CDS on my new scope worked outside of my normal shooting ranges (up to 300 yards). Checked my group at 100 before I went long, then put a milk jug full of water at 400, 450, 500, 550.

Estimated my windage at 400, was off by 2" on my first shot, then 1 shot kills out to 550 yards! Those milk jugs didn't stand a chance.

It was a good workout hauling 40# of water in the pack uphill 2 miles to the cut I shot in, plus pulling my cart with collapsible bench. Felt great to shoot, and shoot well! Those bulls are in trouble.

Thanks everyone for the congrats on the new baby as well. I feel like I've been overshadowing that aspect of my life with my hunt story, but it is truly amazing.

He's such an amazing little person already. He only gets up once a night to feed, usually around 3:30, and lets us sleep 4-5 hours uninterrupted on either end of that. The changes that happen after only 3 weeks (unreal, he's already 3 weeks old today) are pretty amazing. Watching the visual recognition begin, the head/neck control gaining strength fast, and facial features begin to change, its amazing. My wife and I are definitely in love with the little guy, and it feels like he's been with us forever already. Couldn't imagine life without him  :)
