Here is one from one who knows it but one things for certain he is no poet grin.gif

Twas the night before gun season and all through the house the stories were flowing like the cat and the mouse. The cloths were all hung though out the old house in hopes that old mossy would soon fill our scopes.

The hunters were all nestled all snug in their beds While visions of mossy buck danced in their heads;

Then out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.

The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below,
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a vision of old mossy, and eight mighty deer,

With a flash , so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be Mr. Big.

More rapid than eagles his coursers they came,
And he whistled, and snorted, and called them by name; "Now, bambi! now, bucky! now, PRONGHORN and VIXEN!
To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!"

Away went old mossy as true as could be with songs of the thirty pointer we dreamed it would be.

That morning arrived with friends all a hoping
Ol mossy was just down in the old open.

Then Mossy would run for cover so tight
in hopes that the thicket would not let them bite.

The troops did abound and roam through the woods,
As they looked and searched all through the trees a mutter and groan all mounted and pleaded... "did you see the thirty pointer...."

This story be told for all to hear
that bucky will roam from year to year.
The day may come for bucky to die but his sprit will live up in the sky.
Hunters will talk of bucky so bold;
That be why he grows so old.

So the legend be set for us to master, when bucks grow to that of stature
shoot wisely and safely for that so treasured
you may be the one that is measured
in stature and grace with all that is shown a buck so big and one so bold;

he may be 4 or 6 or 8 with beams that abound and spread so great
but one thing that rages amongst all hunters the trophy will live for ever and ever.

Best of luck to all
shoot straight
shoot safe
And tell lots of stories cause no one will believe you anyway grin.gifgrin.gif

    • Always enjoy the "out west" write ups!!!  I really appreciate you taking the time to share your journey!! 
    • Well I wasn’t going to do any fluid changes untill next fall but it’s been a little more than a year and I just clicked 1k miles. About 30-40 hours since last oil change. I think I’m just going to do it. So last time I just took it to a dealer but it’s expensive, the machine is gone for at least a week and it’s a hassle to deal with dropping off and picking up. So I think I’m going to try it myself. I’ve changed oil on things many times before so this isn’t anything new. I’m going to get ahold of my dealer and see what I need and have them walk me through the steps. I want to change the oil, the front and rear gear case oil and I’d like to do the transmission fluid also. I also just saw Polaris has a deal now through the 1st of oct for $10 off an oil change kit. So I think I just need an oil change kit and a quart of gearcase oil? I also have a new spark plug I’ll through in and go through the machine like I always do every few months. I know @leech~~ had a magnum what did you always do for maintence? 
    • enjoyed the story but this view is incredible  your lucky you get to hunt there
    • Not unlike most years.....
    • wow.....thats cool......................hmmm idea for da next bear, whenever i get drawn and get one !!!!!!!!!
    • Well no reason to come back out of the woods or off the lake ice fishing this year at noon on Sundays!  😕
    • I don't get the concept that we won't get anything in return for him.  If you are using that theory look at Kawai Leonard...San Antonio seemed to get something for a guy that everyone knew was not gonna work with San Antonio and everyone said they would only get something from the Lakers but Toronto stepped up made a play and the word is that they may be the front runner on resigning him!  Look at Paul George...he was in the same boat that he was not gonna resign with anyone and the Thunder took a chance and now they have him on the books for years to come cuz he changed his mind.  Players in the NBA seem to change every month as to what they want to do.  Get rid of Butler, get some good assets, and move on.
    • I have about 100 left.  Hoping to use them up before the ice season.  The commercial flats do not have a cover and we slip them into a Menard shopping bag.  I have a 1/3 flat (or so) with a cover that is keeping them inside.
