    Are you retiring, making a transfer or looking for a new job as well?

    Either way, congratulations!

    Reminds me of the 70's TV show The White Shadow, except you are not the coach, but the shadow part works.:confused:

    You moving to Columbia?

    If so you'll be fairly close to @foodplot19 amd @Ridgerunner3

    Guessing they could key you in on some public if you don't find your own property right away. Mature bucks are going to look a vut bigger either way :lol:

    Good luck with the transition and employment/home search. With 17 years on the current job you shouldn't have a hard time finding something.

    A bit closer to my ground.
    Come on up Brett, bring beer.:biggrin:
    Granted. Hunting may be a bit "easy" compared to what you're used to but..., A bit of change can't hurt?

    St. Louis is a busy place!! August A. Busch is a big conservation area there. Lots of big deer around there.

    You are close enough to Arkansas that it is an easy out-of-state trip. Come on down, its the sleeper state of the south.

    @LittleChief hasn't killed them all. He keeps turning down my offer for me to show him my spots. There is still deer there, I only shoot one every other year. :lol::beer:
