headed toward Bowman! It was blast, the winds were high, and animal count was low! It was hot and dry. I would say there was 1/3 of the amount of antelope. Had some good opportunities. Only one was "succesful". My buddy eric put a long stalk on a nice pronhorn buck. When he was almost there, another stepped out in front. Missed first shot @ 48yds and speed goat moved a few feet closer and he placed his second shot perfect. many other attempts, many were so close. I did mess up twice on the 2 biggest deer I have ever step in front of me. I think they both could see my heart beating (one mulie 4x4 about 160"+ full velvet; and one whitetail 12pt w/ stickers atleast 150" of chocolate brown antlers.) I had full pass threw on the mule deer but a little high and to far back, wind was a factor. Gave it plenty of time followed blood trail about half mile and then saw a my deer along w/ 5 other bucks walk along a power line right up over the hillside a mile or 2 away. Very Very heartbreaking. The whitetail came out a dusk while sitting in a blm area. Played around 100yds from me for a half hour. getting darker and darker. So I made a move, used a big hay bail to stalk within 56yds (ranged next day, to dark to get in range finder well enough) drew back put 50 pin right about histail, and released. Felt perfect, watched the wind push my arrow right into the kill zone, then WHACK!!! my stomach dropped when I saw my arrow sticking in his front left elbow. I knew that was not a kill shot and only had one arrow on the stalk. walked right back to ground blind and grabbed quiver, and headed back to my hay bail. At this point it was after shooting hours and I was heart broken. didn't see where it ran off to. While I was sulking and looking around for where it could have ran off to then while I was not ready and way to dark, he popped out of the weeds 25yds from me and then ran off to the ravine near by. It was an awesome trip again this year, hope to be able to make it back this year. thanks must go out to the trail motel on bowman for accomodating to us so well, and to all the landowners that gave us land to hunt. Thanx Ron, Rex, Neyl, June, the IOU ranch, and the McGee's! See y'all next year!

    •     ........if you are member of the LIVs. My 2nd graders think I am really smart at math as well. 
    •   No, but they wouldn't send them all to Belle Plaine where all the bleedies will take care of them, so what are we going to do? Man your pulling everything out of the old Libertarian hang book tonight.
    • Manafort was dumped quicker than a cheap date.   #pence2018
    •   No and no, I read it closely, but down here I shoot first then ask questions.                          
    •   Nice try.   You want me to rip apart your beloved Portugal?  There are hole everywhere.   First thing is first. This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets. "Sometimes I feel the promoters of this discussion are mixing things together using a lack of intellectual seriousness (Big Dave & Purple)," he said.""     This is just in 5 minutes, I'll go on doing this all day long. Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,       

    • Come on Del like any good law we have to pass it to find out what is in it.
    • If you guys (Dave et al) are so "end the war on drugs" you ought to be able to say what that means.  How can you advocate something that you can't, or won't, define?    
    • You dont care about his statements on the 2nd amendment or his ties with radical mooslims as you put it?  
    •   I don't reside in his district and have no power to vote for or against him so I don't spend much of my free time thinking about him.
    •   But your OK with paying for people to sit in prison?   The reason you want to keep drugs criminalized is because they are dangerous, is it not?
