    Indeed it does. I have been agonizing over whether to bowhunt moose tomorrow or take my gun for a walk in the mountains. I'm opting for the mountains, as I need that for personal sanity before going back to work Thursday...but perhaps I'll make some evening jaunts into the 14A woods in hopes of finding a young, dumb spike.

    Gotta wonder if a handful of rams are going to drop across the state at the stroke of midnight as well.

    Ive got 2 Spikes roaming my neighborhood. Gonna be a longggg week til I find 'em.
    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

    How far up river Roger? There's a big one like that up the Talkeetna too. Spotted by a bunch of folks the last couple years, but he never seems to get whacked.

    Damm yard-hunters! They ruin it for everybody!

    "It" being morale, that is... Now we're all running behind and trying to catch up.

    Congrat's again, Roger!
