Double that order for Duck Poppers.  I look forward to those all year...and then missed it last year.  I have drill on 16-18 October, so that is out for me, but the first two weekends of October or even opening weekend back in September would be fine so far as I know.  I'll burn a personal business day for a Friday.  I'll try to have some more bows to show around too.

From last years talk the 2nd week of Oct was the date we planned to have the hunt this year.  Does anyone know if this conflicts with any type of gun hunt for the area?

Also, remember not to shoot any protected pigs if you happen to see one!

That's a big lake that can swallow a lot of people.  I don't follow tourneys and so have no idea how big a deal it is or where on the lake it'll be headquartered.  

I just might have to burn a couple of personal days to hang out a little longer since I missed last year.  We'll see.

The bass tourney is being held out of Mountain Harbour Resort so it shouldn't affect us.

Just a reminder but we can double up a tent with a camper on a single spot.  Plus there are a few of us that get 50% off the camp fee.  The caveat is those of us that get the discount must register and pay then let others join us.

I will be in my truck camper again and will have the couch bed available if someone would like to use it.  If you are over 5'8" you are still welcome to stay but the length of the bed may be an issue.  

If someone wants to put a tent up along side me we can pay around $4 a night using the discount and splitting the cost.

Anyone else get the discount and don't mind sharing a site?

I am saving money now so I can stay an extended time.  I plan to hunt with the bow until muzzle loader opens then use my Hawkins.

Dave do you have room in the freezer or do we need to make other arrangements?

I'll contact Tyler and let him know and I'll also contact Caleb and see what he has going on.

I have a hammock that I can string up, or a tent.....or just crash on the ground (most likely).  Is that discount retired vets only or still in service too?  If still in, then I'd qualify.  Not retired yet, obviously.  A little over halfway there.
