Try to find more than one. You can never have enough locations to hunt.

You can do that? Has anybody checked on this? I'm not buying it...

Do you just go to google and type in "honey holes"? Would google images work better?

That is just not true...

For once Woody was just minding his own business, sitting there wiping down and admiring his brand new gun, that he no longer has.

Didnt one of you start a thread when it happened? If so, I think we should bump it every year just before the season opens, for everyone to relive the death defying moments that you two shared. So that we all can be aware of the hazards related to hunting in Michigan.

Oh...and so Jehler can try to pry the location of the wreckage from the information given.
