    The mounts are finally in.

    Africa mounts should be in by late May. Pray for me. That she doesn't leave me lol.

    I have it on a temporary table for now. Waiting for the Africa pieces to arrive so I can properly plan out the space and decide before I make things permanent.

    Got my euro back yesterday. Wish I woulda got it posted before Chago, for some reason his pic isn’t loading in my phone now but guessing they’re awesome as usual making mine look even weaker. Came nice and kids are pumped. Hoping this year get a shot to improve

    I’m all for another year together. Great crew and for how it went it would be a reasonable reward.
    Got back later yesterday from Florida vaca trip and just ran first 5k for the year. Had my 5 year old join. Couldn’t have been worse shape since last year and carried him over a mile of it but survived and probably beat time I woulda guessed by 10 min. Can’t imagine had the last 6 months been even decently trying to get in shape.

    Congrats Western. Looks good to me. Any way works. Still hoping to get out myself some year. Few buddies have been out this spring with no luck. One year when few things get done and others caught up hopefully get out.

    Happy Father's Day guys! 1 day late...

    I just got the call that my buck is ready already! I can't wait. I am going to go up this afternoon after work and grab him. I'll post pics when I can. I hope he looks as epic as I have been dreaming about.

    Happy Father’s Day to everyone as well. Hope everyone had a good weekend.
    Looking forward to seeing the buck Western. Gonna look great for sure. Hope he comes just as hoped.
    Been a busy spring so as far as hunting related has gotta pushed aside. Finally fired up the tractor and rushed discing and had some soybeans I got in for one plot. Had to use them up and timing worked. Gonna broadcast rye and maybe brassicas later so we’ll see how it goes.
    Been getting some mostly unsuccessful fishing aside from working on cabin/property, helping coach tee ball, and got my mustang in first cash show for fun Saturday. If days were 100 hours instead of 24 things could go so much smoother.

    2018 MA MZ 5.jpg 2018 MA MZ 7.jpg 2018 MA MZ 8.jpg 2018 MA MZ 2.jpg 2018 MA MZ 4.jpg Well, here he is... 1st at the taxidermy shop and then home... He is bigger than I remember! The pics do not do his size justice! Instead of doing a habitat scene from the catalog, they just did some water and rocks with bit of moss and leaves, like there was where he died. I didn't have them do snow as they said it usually yellows over time and is a pain to keep clean. 2018 MA MZ 7.jpg 2018 MA MZ 8.jpg 2018 MA MZ 2.jpg 2018 MA MZ 4.jpg

    Awesome western. I'm still waiting for my Africa and elk. Once that's all in I'm gonna do a nice photoshoot.

    Looks awesome Wake. I’ve got some old steel I put a few sheets up in our basement log sided room to test out. Planning on doing whole ceiling down there with it. Been pushing off finishing it out since wife hasn’t made up her mind but looks sweet and have it.

    I was hoping we could fight y'all again. But since it's obvious that we will not be.... Well played guys. I hope you all get on a team that ties for second.

    It's going to be hard to move on guys... i mean... we really had something special here... :lmao2:
    Good luck to all this season. Hopefully some of us end up together again.. but they will probably break us all up because they are scared... lol
    Seriously though, it was a good ride. Be safe and shoot straight. It has been a pleasure spending the past 3 seasons with you all and getting to know you. lots of ups and downs.

    Agreed and same to everyone as well. Hope everyone has a fun season and does well, well enough like at least one point less than whatever team I end up on :)
    Over the years definitely been keeping up less and less with things on here besides the contest/this team. Hopefully the contest sparks some fun and interest again.
    For curiosity it would be interesting to keep score for this group and compare it to how the contest goes. Just as a what if kinda thing. Wouldn’t be completely accurate as to how it woulda went but an idea
    Got a few cams out last week and put pretty limited effort so far. Should have some new heavier arrows coming soon. About a month til things start
