    It has warmed up to 21 here now. It almost feels like a spring day.

    I appreciate all of the harassment sent my way, I’m sure glad I can take more then I give out lol. This was the best team that I have been in and not just because we won. Can’t wait to do it again next year!

    I think exchanging numbers for a big group chat would be a great idea. I have done that with one other team. It worked great but did slow down the thread just a little bit but not bad. Hope everyone is doing well and staying warm!

    I concur, the years I was on a team that did the group chat, it kinda broke the team into two chunks - those partaking in it and those that didn't want to. Some updated just the chat others just the thread.

    BUT that was a different dynamic and group altogether. I'd say as captain perhaps we all should at minimum send our numbers your way or our personal email just as a way for communication.

    Also, I still find it incredibly sad it never dawned on me you and Mitchell on Facebook were one in the same LOL

    I am finally back in the technology world. Last Tuesday I was icefishing and dropped my phone down the ice hole. My wife wasn’t too happy with me. We had insurance on it but it was still $200 to replace it. So she gave me strict instructions it stays on the truck when I am icefishing It was nice not to get bugged by anybody, but yet nobody could get a hold of me.

    The wife and I ventured out to the post office today. We got another four or five inches of snow so I had some traction on the roads.

    I knew there were a couple of things from Amazon there that my wife had ordered. I was thinking maybe my package would be there but it wasn't.

    I got my prize package and love it. Kudos to BHOD for putting together a very generous gift! Please let them know that it is very much appreciated.

    I hate that I missed 4 weeks of the best part of the season and did not put a buck down, but I am getting pictures of all of last years targets and picked up an incredible new farm to hunt, so I have high hopes for next year. Looking forward to a repeat.

    I put up a camera in an area I have not hunted in the past as I thought it was too narrow
    Ha!
    I was so stupid & wrong at the same time
    Come spring there will be a stand in a tree

    Your gonna get teased about that! Around 25 years ago build a big ice shack, had a wood burning stove in it for heat and cooking. Had a package of hot dogs slip out of my hand and down the hole. Kids still remind me of it.

    My prize package showed up in the mail yesterday. Very nice!

    I did pass on your thanks to Brad and the crew.

    On another note, I am going to get one more hunting trip in. I’m planning on heading to Arkansas tomorrow for a few days.

    There should still be snow cover in the woods. If so it could be a lot of fun.

    Good luck on your hunt Chief! Snow is always great for seeing sign and tracking deer.

    Thanks Rick.

    I’ll be reviving the LFTS thread a little bit while I’m there.

    Got my package as well, now everywhere I go, I get asked for autograph. They think I'm @Justin ,which is kind of degrading, I didn't think I was that ugly.
