Motivation ?

Regardless of where it's found...Motivation is a wonderful thing. RP

Happy Hour Hot Spot: Met up with the Prez of GSB Shoal Creek chapter for Happy Hour. Old stand-by LaBodega on SW Blvd is still a great place to find 1/2 price drinks and awesome small plate bites.
2008 Election Update: For all you Mike Huckabee fans... Chuck Norris is officially on the "Huck Truck" bandwagon.

Compliments of the Phoenix GSB Chapter. He's expected to be in rare form at the Sit-Down.

Be Prepared

The Bearcats have advanced to the D-II quarterfinals. They laid the smack-down on West Texas A&M 56-28. Our ol' GSB buddy Adam Dorrel "AD" has kept the offense clicking.

Next up is Chadron state who we faced in last years quarterfinal round. This time we're playing in their house. Semifinal match up would be against winner of Grand Valley and Central WA who knocked out UNO this past weekend. Go Bearcats !!

Too bad D-I can't figure out a playoff system. It's a lot less talkin and more walkin...

3 strikes're out

Finally had a look at the big one I've been waiting for. Biggest rack I've seen not hanging on a wall. He got winded me about 60 yards out and was none to happy about the encounter. After a 5 minute stare-down that included a fair amount of hoof stompin and snorting from his end, he was gone. He'll be bigger next year.

Coco couldnt make the trip but I brought home a picture of big brother Toby.

No luck thus far...

'07 season is off to a slow start... at least the deer portion. I did have my own little version of Animal Kingdom. Saturday evening's hunt was full of action with the rut heating up, bucks and does were doing their traditional cat and mouse games all around my position deep in the timber. I was fortunate to see the culmination of the mating process which for those unaware is quite rare to witness first hand.

I finished the day with a very close how-do session with a resident opposum. He made it clear, it was time for me to turn over the timber to the night time party.

Sunday's weather was very warm and action was slow until sundown, I found myself in a 12ft triangle showdown of no-blink with a yearling doe and 2 raccoons. For what seemed like 5 mins, I was looking at her, she was looking at me, the coons were looking at us both and around the triangle we went.

Hezzy bagged a nice little 8-pointer but Kunky, D-Luv, Okie and I were shut-out. We'll be back this week for another round.

Times are a changin...

Made a final check-in to Possum Walk last night. After ringing up the house, I was informed Uncle Kunky was out in the feedlot but not to worry....I could "call him on his cell phone".

It's official the last holdout finally broke down and got himself a Hip-Horn. Never thought we'd see the day.

Don't Judge Too Quickly....

There are typically 2 sides to every story. The only question is... Which side is better?
