Sam,

Glad that you're back!  Have missed your adventures!

Really nice hog!  End of May is getting closer.  I truly wish that my plans did not get changed.  Was looking forward to hunting bear with you and your son in Idaho.

Maybe next time!  Anyway's, welcome back    :thumbsup:    :clapper:

I know the feeling. I get that way sometimes, and doom befalls all the cute and tasty critters that get in my way on those days.   :bigsmyl:

Thanks guys , Im not out of the woods yet , I have also sold my house and am in the process of buying a new place. If all works out well I will be back to my old ways in a month or so when I get all moved and settled in. Then the critters will have me as a problem again......

Good luck, Sam, on the buy.  I thought that you had said something about adding on a trophy room.  I guess that that got upgraded    ;)   !

Sam,

If I remember correctly, you are out in Idaho trying to arrow yet another (more) color-phase bears.

Prayers for your brothers who have been killed and wounded in the tragic Houston apartment blaze!     :pray:
