    Dude do you drive around logged into the AOD on your phone!?!

    My nephew drove me nuts clicking away on his, I never want to be that "in touch".

    Bit of a haul for me guess that spike is someone else's dinner.

    bow only in that area? wish I'd been shooting my bow this summer, so I'd be confident enough in my gear to go chase him. Hope your tip pays off for someone.

    I'm glad I took my bow to Iraq with me so I could keep up on shooting.

    glad you were able to do that, and thanks!

    I guess that's the biggest thing I hate about living in town - being too crowded to shoot my bow safely in the backyard. (well...I guess I hate the punks speeding down the street with the bass rattling the whole house, the vehicle break ins, and the yappy little rat dogs all over the neighborhood with no responsible owners!)

    a good archer could take care of nearly half those issues...

    guess it's a good thing I'm out of practice!

    is there a real map (where the line isn't 2 miles wide in scale and the names of landmarks are readable!) of the FMA anyone has found? I thought the FMA ended right at steele creek? (that description of the FMA in the regs should be the poster child for real GMU and hunt area maps...how absurd. I've read it for years and I still don't know every boundary of the FMA)

    edit - this is the best version of the FMA map I could find...use it wisely!

    NOPE the PIPELINE is the boundy for the FMA on that side.. along the pipeline to it's junction with the Chena river
    the pipeline crosses at steel creek road by about 100 foot
