Default A deserved message

I leave soon and head to my hunting accommodations. Yes I did as much research as I could. Unfortunately I relayed to much info to the party because now when I reach the area I located ther will be 4 tree stands, numerous scouting trails and 7 days of previous hunting of black powder and archery played out on the spot I located. I guess there there was some very good sign there when I told a relative to check it out for me. Live and learn jac a!!

Live and learn is correct! My neighbor to the east hunts and we talk occasionally throughout the years. He always brings up hunting and if I had seen any good bucks. The answer, every year, is "nothing huge, just small bucks in small bachelor groups". I NEVER share my trail cam pics UNLESS he or his family shoots a buck that I have a picture of. I don't think he has picked up on what I do... but hunting is a competition where I hunt. Sort of like poker. I'm not going to show my cards to the guy I'm playing against!
...and on that day when my strength is failing, the end draws near and my times has come, still my soul will sing Your praise unending, ten thousand years and then forevermore!

Thanks, you made me smile today. And laugh at myself. I realize now that I can use the situation to my advantage thanks.

It is poker, but it can be taken to extremes. I always chuckle when I ask someone where they got a deer and they get super-secretive. One lady just said "Uh, Admiralty Island". Now Admiralty Island is the size of Rhode Island, and everyone here hunts there. So even if you narrowed it down a little, that's still a big wide area to stomp around on.

Good Luck...
