mikenc, I can't know what to say to a guy in your situation, but at least you view things differently and appreciate things more. I've always tried to live by the motto at the end of each of my posts. It's taken me all over the world on a popper's income. I wouldn't trade any of it.
sent up a prayer for you just now. Only the Lord knows the number of our days; may yours--hopefully many, many more years--be blessed. I am 37 also and I need a reminder from time to time about how precious time with loved ones is. Thanks and God Bless.
The critters have to win every time, I only have to win once.
That's a nice buck, BigSky. He looks pretty old and would likely be on the decline soon. It's a blessing he was taken when you did, with honor and reverence, rather than dieing a slow painful death otherwise.
That is a fantastic buck!!! Do not believe I would ever let one like that walk.
I think everyone here would agree that non of us hunt for the "kill". The kill is the end of the enjoyment of being out with nature which is what makes know or remember we are alive and humbles us to realize how small we really are in this big world. But to be able to take part in it is what makes us do it every year. To enjoy it with our families is a huge bonus. We are truely blessed to live in the west. I for one will never leave Montana as long as I can support my family here.
Again, congrats on a fine buck!!!
