Got a bird that I shot last December. Wife's not pleased where I put it. I told her it will blow her a kiss every morning she comes down the stairs.

I told the wife that the space above the stairway to the basement would be perfect for an elk mount.

She seemed less enthusiastic about that idea than I hoped. Have to work on that

My advice is put it up before she comes home. The real trick is hiding it until you have free time to hang it.

My advise, is to talk about putting up something she would like even less… and be adamant… then settle… let her win. And then, put up the elk. She can't win every argument… right? :yes:

And you win Goldie… I'll take some elk burger for the trouble… :wink:

:beer:

Well this has to be the biggest brag I’ll ever post… Alia told me today “we’ll I’m supposed to do gymnastics tonight but I’d like to go goose hunting instead” it was great to hear she values that time so we dod and she was still in the hunt for her first bagged bird….. well holy cow was it delivered! A Single just sucked into the kill hole, gave her a good clean shot and she executed…. We got up to it and I did a double take…. Effing banded! Unreal….. on another great note copper also got his first goose retrieve (another goose we got)

We submitted the band data, must have been banded this year cause the data from banding hasn’t been submitted yet, it’s a big bird so not a yearling but when we get the data I’m thinking it’s from Thunder Bay, ON as we get a lot of birds through all of September from Thunder Bay to lake nipigon and north

…. Or it was banded 3 miles away lol
