Your wife just emailed me and wanted me to tell you to dust those dang antlers off while you were up there. Also, when you come home don't forget to pick up some eggs and a loaf of bread and don't forget to do the dishes before you go to bed. ;-) :lol2:

Hope it warms up soon. We don't start for another couple of weeks, then the late nights start.

Misty my nickname is Killer. Might be because I love hunting.

One of mine went down after calving. Couldn't find CMPK anywhere locally. Finally found some on-line. Been pasting her with alternatives and it gets her up. Its been a while since I have been through this.

Well Dun I think it started when I was a kid and all I could think of was hunting with my Dad. He started the nickname.
Too bad the dept. of motor vehicles wouldn't let me put it on my plates.
