Awesome, congrats! Itís always good to hear when hard work pays off!
Looked like a fairly large Tom, was it? Hard to tell from the pics.

Good luck this weekend!
My interpretation of the rules are open to interpretation.
Once I thought I was wrong but I was mistaken.

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.

Whatever it takes, never give up. Nobody said it was gonna be easy, they said it would be worth it.

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!
