Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.

its a great pic. Iím super happy with the cat. There were bigger ones taken and smaller ones. Some guys havenít got one yet so Iím calling it a great cat. Shot it with my bow, worked my butt off and have the whole thing on video.

Itís easily the biggest cat Iíve ever shot.

I had to buy a 2018 license for last week. Idaho is a two cougar state in some units so  can whack one this coming December. Right after I deer and elk here. I may as well I have a license. Plus at this rate I should be able to buy a resident license in 2019. By the end of this weekend I will have been Idaho more than Washington in 2018.

That's one thing I hope Wa doesn't adopt. We have too many stupid drivers causing speeding accidents. I wish the state and county would start passing out more speeding tickets. The roads here are for the most part not designed for excessive speed

Good Luck!

Hoping you're on a hot track!

I hear thereís more lion blood in the snow!!

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

So yesterday sucked because it was carry over from Friday. Longest day of my life. Drive all night hunt all day and found an old cat track at 2pm.  If it were fresh Dale Would have sent the dogs but he just couldnít tell. Thought it was a good female or a smaller Tom.  Anyways we were tired and decided to call it a day and try again today.
