- Did you all survive the holidays??
I did with a couple extra pounds!!
Only 9 more days of bow season here.
I've had my traps out for just over two weeks now and all I've caught
is a couple of possums. They're easy to release though cause they play
dead. Still hoping for the bobcat. I have till the end of January to
Hubby and I are gearing up for the 300 league. I am a terrible target
shooter, but hope to out shoot last years score. It's only my second
year. I have a bad case of target panic. Trying to get over it.
Anyway, hope everyone is well and let's hear what's going on.
- I am very sorry about that then. It did look like it was your e-mail. If you
would like to take my advice there is a book called NTA Trapping Handbook I
have found very helpful. I wish you best of luck with yur trapping.
