Whats everyone doing?

Postby Fredito » Thu Feb 16, 2006 5:18 pm

Its been pretty quiet around here...what has everyone one been up to???? I have gotten engaged recently so I have been trying to help plan a wedding (people seem to frown on a max-4 tux...I dont know why) trying to find a house and maintain sanity...this all has to be done before next season.... :umm:

Congrats and good luck with the wedding planning. I did all that last year... Not much happening for myself. Waiting for the weather to warm up so I can start hitting the trails again.

Congrats on the engagement.....really. I wouldnt invite that SOB fun4jake though. You never know what kind of stories he might start or the poor unknowing participants he may suck into his lowdown tricks.

Its just a jealousy thing with him. I think the only reason he shoots decoys is because he gets more kills that way not many more but a few.. He told me he though everyone liked thier calls dipped in doo. If you ever hunt with fun4jake DONT use his calls. LOL Poor Jeff.

Well far be it from me to ever put down a huntin buddy but it does suprise me that Jeff shoots decoys. His decoy shooting must be done in warm weather because his gun doesn't work when it's cold. Putting someone's calls in pooh doesn't suprise me at all. I saw him do it several times to Paul's calls last year. :laughing:

The part that has me worried is he tries to be innocent when he does it...'oh look a duck' *bang* 'no...that was my decoy'....or thats a neat call can I see it....oops sorry I dropped it in this fresh poo'....I would never make fun of a hunting buddy either...but I think its only fair to inform fellow hunters of possible hazards... :laughing: :laughing: :laughing:

I took a picture of Paul on our last hunting trip. If it was a better pic the medial would be all over it.

Man, Jeff you made my day with that picture. I laughed for 10 minutes. Thank you !!! Yes I agree Jeff. The image of that beast racing down the beach with those ten foot strides is very hard to forget. Remember when we finally caught up to him. Hands covered in blood. Duck down hanging from his beard. The stuff nightmares are made of. You saw it on flat ground. You ought to see him move in the mountains. It's scary. I'll be 50 by next hunting season. I started running 4 miles every morning in hopes that I can just stay within eye sight of the elusive Sasquatch next season. Thanks for the memory.

Jeff-After further reflection I admit the picture was funny in a sad sort of way, But everyone on here knows it was just a pathetic attempt to redirect thier attention away from your recently revealed POO fetish and your violent attitude towards plastic ducks. Please tell me your still shooting Kent shells. I just bought some stock.

Mark, Mark, Mark. For your comments I have decided that this year I am not going to drag you all over the mountains for 3 days only to let you drive all the way home to Helena before I arrow my elk 3 hours after you leave. This year I am going to shoot one while you are with me so you will have to help pack. I tried to be nice this year and let you get home and relax on your couch before I tagged out. I guess you just don’t appreciate my attempt at kindness toward an older hunter. Hey,I forget did we ever find that rabbit arrow of yours?

No, the rabbit arrow is still somewhere in the stratosphere with so many others just like it that I've shot over the years. Bad bounce LOL. Actually I think it landed right next to your grouse arrow in "L" creek. I will be ready for the hills this year, that you can count on. As far as packing meat goes, I'd be more than happy to help as long as your there for me as well bro. Now lets talk about these repeated put downs about Jeff's shooting abilities. I will agree that a bird a box is a little on the weak side but don't forget that he hit a couple of decoys with every box too.

Mark I found the pic with the duck feathers. Its too bad that he started to the truck with a limit and when we got there, there were only 3 ducks left, a trail of feathers and blood, and this creature just standing there like nothing was wrong. :umm:

Ok that may be me. :yes:

Jeff just be forewarned. I think next year I am going to take a picture of the mound of empty shotgun hulls next to your blind and run a pol on which weighs more the blind or your emptys. :umm:

Spill it. We need all the Jeff stories this forum can get. The version I heard, it was your fault.

Hutch is your home E-Mail down ? I went to the DU banquet tonight and won the $1200 Winchester special edition shotgun. No kidding. Thats twice in 3 years. I'm not usually the one that wins that kind of stuff but for some reason my string of luck at these banquets has been red hot. T Between Shirley and I and the other 8 people at our table we won 5 guns. I tried to invite you and the wife up but I never heard back. Great picture Jeff. Those kind of things are very hard to forget.

If Jeffs poor dog gets a depressed look on his face when ever Jeff misses then the poor dog must have a perpetual frown locked on his expression. :umm: :laughing:
