Newsletter November 13, 2006
this edition is a bit late as it’s been rather sporty around these parts,
between work, Fall household chores and available time
in the deer woods haven’t kept up with some things. Headed back to the deer
woods again this weekend, probably won’t come out till mid December to rest up
for the late doe season.
to say that the Caywood .54 Game Gun had a good break in recently, could have
taken two different does in the Muzzleloader season but both had twin fawns
with them. Due to the landowners QDM procedures had to pass on four different
bucks, two of which should be nice ones next year. Opted for my most favorite
target, Coyote, blasted one at about 50 yards, the second at about 90 yards
trying to sneak up on some turkeys that was fun.
opportunity to catch up with several members this last month. Thinking there
was close to ten at the Woolaroc Rendezvous, need to
check my numbers with Bryant (AR-rep) as his memory is much better than mine.
Also had overnight house guests as they were in town on business of Judith
Clarke with an E and Mike “Kiwi” Rowe, Kiwi seemed quite taken with the boiled
deer meat and stewed tomatoes.
National level, Mr. Scott Carlson the current
state rep has been nominated and
accepted to run for the Eboard position as Treasurer,
I’m sure Scott can handle it very well, he has my full support.
has posted some updates concerning Ft Osage 07 on the website, hope everyone has their calendars marked for next April, looking to be bigger
and better yet again.
Territorial level, have had several requests from state reps regarding access
to the rep tools area on the website, as of now I believe this one is solved.
If anyone runs into problems again please let Dan or Moon know as I have
trouble just turning on a computer. Other than some minor email problems the SC
state reps are doing a fine job of it. Ken “Burnt Squirrel” Dodson (LA-rep) had
some exciting adventures as of late, thus the new moniker.
State level, I goofed in the last newsletter, was so proud to finally attach a
picture all by myself I forgot to caption it. For those that have not had the
sincere pleasure of sharing a camp with him that is Mr. Mark “White Turtle” Grigg from
shooting a new bow he built. Other state news, the state rep position is still
available to anyone wanting to give it a go, please let me know if interested
and I’ll forward all the particulars.
return to the normal newsletter format next edition, thought we’d try something
a bit different to throw you all off a bit. Being past due still wanted to
include a passage from A.J. Langguth’s Patriots,
Simon and Schuster, chapter Politics 1765, page 67 “Any candidate who didn’t
offer a few drinks was considered too stingy or lacking in respect for his
neighbors to deserve their votes” them folks knew how to run an election back
closing I’d like to add another quote that I am in total agreement with, personally feel everyone should make it their
number one concern also.
