Trav you almost look delirious in that last pic of yourself.

very nice!
As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

Those were some serious cut offs. I think I need a pair of those.
I hunt, therefore I am.... I fish, therefore I lie.

To say I'm antsy would be an understatement. Hardly any snow in the mountains down here in SW Idaho, 64 degrees out today. I should be bear hunting but it's still 70 days til bear season

Big time antsy! We are already talking as through we've drawn tags, pouring over maps and making plans.
The lazy do not roast any game, but the diligent feed on the riches of the hunt.
