    Odds are extra long for KY or TN elk

    Got a buddy that is a builder, we did concrete for 2 different sheds and that kinda how he built then. Ugliest damn things I've seen.
    One had a open front lean too and the other had a pourch and he just continued the roof line from shed out to both. Idk guess different ppl but I thought they looked like crap.

    under normal circumstances, yes; but I am on the wagon.

    yep, 3rd year putting in. I doubt I'll ever draw but you gotta play to win.

    'go west young man' odds are better for the draws, but there are also otc options as a fall back.

    Though benefits to KY/TN certainly include the low up front application cost

    I am 99% certain I have a hernia and its getting worse every day. Call a large medical practice by my house to set up an appt to be seen by a general surgeon. Yeah...they asked me if I could do a virtual appointment. I asked her how could a doctor diagnose a hernia over a webcam...wth

    I'm gonna try a few more places this morning. I'm getting worried but from what I've read I'm ok unless it gets pinched. It's just slowly getting worse.

    1 beer fucking lightweight.jpg

    Reminds me of the time my dog became riled about something while riding in the back seat of my truck. He stomped on a 12 pack of soda I had just bought and put a hole in a can right through the cardboard case. It then sprayed in my truck until empty. :(

    I've been to Idaho, OTC, self guided. Got me a cow, and had a blast.
    Trying to make it an every 3 year deal although that's been elusive. I just put in for KY because it's so close and it's only $20; and if I draw a couple of buddies (or even my wife) would get deer tags and come with.

    my dog did that twice- once when he was a about a year old and I left a 12 pack of bottles on the kitchen floor. I get home from work and he'd chewed the box open, and chewed the tops off of 3 bottles, which since they were warm really mustve fizzed all over and he drank enough of it when I got home he was passed out snoring. Then he was hungover for 2 days.

    Second time was a couple months later, me and a couple buddies went up to Wisconsin to hunt; I took the dog. Had a dirty 30 of Pabst in the Jeep, and we stopped to get dinner on the way up. Came out an hour or so later to find he'd chewed open the case, and punctured 3-4 cans which sprayed all over my Jeep and all over our gear. Again, he was passed out snoring. He threw up that night, and was hungover all weekend.

    He won't even sniff a beer now!

    I was thinking of making the $30 co pay a lot of fun, then began thinking I was probably going to be getting digitally recorded with my cahones hanging out.

    Sometimes you have to sigh and count your blessings. IE , I wish I had your issues. Our place was an old camp house. They built it 24" on center, walls, floor, ceilings. Picture that drywall. Ceilings look like a wash board, floors bounce. and everything squeaks. Modified A frame where roof ends on the walls ,no over hangs at all. I won't even mention electrical...lol See it could be worse..hahaha good luck.

    Don’t take it personally, I have been applying for an Arkansas elk tag for 11 years without drawing. I expect this to be year 12. Should be confirmed by mid-June.

    PA is the same, I've put in 4-5 years in a row no luck. I doubt I will be drawn for a while. There are people who have been putting in since tags were first offered in 2001 and still haven't been drawn.

    Asking someone, who is not at a meeting, to confirm what was said at the meeting with regard to parts shipping, quantity and ship date.

    Really, 4 of you on the email, all of you at the meeting and you ask me to confirm what the customer told you directly??

    Get out. Find another job and save this company some money.
