In my early years of hunting, read that younger days, we often hunted in a slow stalking mode like the author described. As I was teaching my boys how to hunt they caught on to the fact that when I said lets just stop here and hunt a few minutes, I was actually just taking a rest break. They still refer to a rest break from hiking, fencing are any other strenuous activity as stopping and hunting a while. Dad do you want to hunt a while? Let's do!

Thanks for thinking of me!
That's like Allen's special sportsman code for fishing. It's actually defined as sitting in my comfy learn chair reading a book while the fish eat my worm.

Yall have to come down to Lake Ouchita State Park and we can do some fishing. We run trotlines and catch plenty of catfish. So easy fishing in one of the top 5 clearest lakes in the nation!

I know how it scared me seeing it (you) walk down to the pavilion like that! I've been real regular ever since

So, the banter leading up to delivery was more useful than the article itself. Well it was worth it then!

For the rest of yez, I sent Tim an article about "still hunting" in IL during (what was it, Tim?) muzzle loading (?) season. I'd never heard of still hunting. Included with the story of one particular day's hunt is a pic of the author and his prize, a 12-point buck.

Yep, Tim really roughs it when he goes deer hunting. That earlier stand prolly fell over from the office chair leaking sideways & the weight of all them snacks! Perfectly balanced otherwise, no doubt.

Cheers, Tim! I'm gonna stop & hunt a while now.

Since there are so many new mutants on here I might need to defend my deer stand building ability. The deer stand that so many refer to as falling down was aided by a nearby tornado! It has been replaced by a ultra modern new stand but can't say it's tornado proof!

I'm with you Sue, this looks like a good place, let's stop and hunt awhile.

Ive got to get up with the chickens!

When I first got our 5er and started to travel I found IRV2 along with other RV sites and found most sites informative, entertaining and some friendly. IRV2 by far has been tops in all areas. Certainly I've meet friends for life here and people that take me as I am, crazy or not.

Well folks I've found a site that is full, running over full, of crazy folks like me. Oh, and Most of them are females! Yep before becoming a big Chicken Mogul I did a little homework and ran across a Facebook group for Chicken keepers! Now if there is anything that Wayne and I have in common, other than strikingly good looks, is the dislike of Facebook. I posted pictures of our first eggs on that site last night and this morning had 560+ likes and page after page of comments. Of course I used the picture of Mary holding the eggs, curious if I'd have got same results had it been a picture of me?

May post again when Richards and my Olympic Speed Skating suites come in and both of us holding eggs! That should generate some responce!

Oh, and Good Morning Mutants!

Tim,
I sent you a friend request and it bounced back with the words, "No way!"

Must have been a bad connection.

This is why I don't like FB. We have friended only a hand full of people. Mostly to get pics of our GK. Some others have appeared, and I finally discovered how, by my hitting accept as flipping through screen. Even with this limited number of friends I get comments from people I am not friends with and don't need my info. As we get more knowledgeable of the workings of FB we may loosen up some but don't take it personal, that's not our intent. I thought it automatically showed up on the RVM plus page since I'm friended with it???
