You have brought back some great memories, Andy. I can't say I have ever enjoyed hunting any more than I did on the trips there to Oz with you. It hurts me terribly to have the hunting area wiped out of buffs just to feed household pets. I knew it was going to happen, but the loss is depressing. I'm glad I had two fantastic hunts on that old cattle station before the slaughter. Every few days I re-live in my mind the walking and glassing, or the stalks you and I did, and I savor the memories of the shots when we got them. And there were the afternoons of fishing for barramundi in the croc infested pool or of relaxing in the swimming hole with the heated waterfall. As the saying goes, "Thanks for the memories." Those experiences were the stuff life is built on. Hope you make it back to Oklahoma soon so we can hunt deer and turkey together again.

I have fond memory's of that as well Allan. We had some pretty neat hunts together out there, very sad to see the end to the property and the great Buff that were there. Relive some of those hunts often, and wont forget the look on your face when I first told you to take off your boots we'r going to walk up to that Big Bull in your Avatar out in the flat burnt only one tree flood plain. It was about as good as your face when the Bull fell to the earth after a heavy arrow to the chest. Some wild hunting to share my friend!

Awesome! Thank you for the journey!
For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation.
