Sweet sap whiskey, Ray's cooking, movie nights... dang... It might be "one of those weekends" if we're not careful!

Luckily I know these are some hard hunting dudes looking to close the deal on the pigs too! You fellas look at the extended forecast? It looks perfect to me!

How wet or dry is it these days Ray?

I guess that was two weeks ago, time flies. I showed up around 1pm and stuck around til close. Real nice bunch of folks up there! It was sounding like I showed up right after most people had left.

I've also got a short howard hill movie with some trick shots I'll try to remember to throw in with my stuff.

Thom, I must have just missed you that day. I left before follow the leader. My wife and I stopped by last night to shoot a couple rounds and I couldn't help but try to give the hogs some extra love. Looking at the cut aways from the shot placement thread really shows I'm going to have to change my mindset about shooting behind the leg.

The closer we get the better the weather looks. Todays 10 day forecast shows no scattered thunderstorms!

Yep, I got there just before follow the leader that day. FYI there is good info printed out in camp about anatomy and a nice sized pig target to practice on. Ray is a wealth of knowledge and will help you out if you want any extra pointers. I better start packing for the range, got two strings to stretch out before next weekend!

Good morning for me today. License printed, arrows no sno'd, silencers on my new string, packing real gear now.

Ray, you've offered a few times to do a tutoring session on broadhead sharpening in camp. I'm thinking I want to take you up on this trip if you don't mind.

I've come to the realization that a broadhead can't be sharp enough. I've got files, Arkansas stones, a Lansky kit,a diamond hone, maybe more I'm forgetting. No KME in my kit. What should I bring other than a bunch of dull broadheads?

That'll be it

I use a 12 inch Nicholson and a 3x9 piece of belting leather glued smooth side up to a board
