Well, I think everyone had a good time with week one and Owlbait is happy he entered my little gift exchange for Mike's book.
In ordered to be considered for the book, you have to enter on THIS post. I am not going back thru the old one--it would be too confusing. So if you entered last week, you will have to take the 10 seconds this week in order to be entered.
I posted this photo about midway thru last week, but it is so amazing, I thought I would open with it here. Maybe this winter ol' Herdbull will come in and give us the history of this buck he has been hunting so hard for the past few years.
I know Mike has had some VERY close encounters with this buk this year. These are sheds from last year and he is very similar now.
I will quote my original post from last week here, but I would like to thank you all for being part of this gift!
Last year, as a Christmas present to my Trad Gang family I gave away a personalized copy of Mike Mitten's book, "One With the Wilderness".
Frankly, the book is an inspiration. I am so impressed with it on so many levels, I have decided to give away another...each week for the next four weeks, ending on Christmas Day.
I will make a new post each week on Sunday. Post your name here on the thread that you would like to to be in the drawing and I will set a deadline of Saturday night at 7pm, put all the names in a hat and have one of my kids draw the lucky winner. I will contact you and get all your information. Mike will personalize it any way you would like,( so you can keep it for yourself, or give it to a buddy or loved one) and then ship it out to you.
If you are not familiar with the book, it basically chronicles Mike's growth as a hunter from the beginning with family and friends to the grand solo adventures he takes today. It is not a how to book, but if you read it carefully, you will pick up many tips that will help you on all of your hunts. Every time I read it, I learn something new and find yet another reason to be impressed.
There is a more eloquent description here on the Brothers of the Bow website:
