    Seriously, not a good place to hunt with rages. JMO

    If Dan gets some people to come along, I will sit back and watch them drag Dan's deer out. lol

    I will be working on an aluminum trailer for my bi......tricycle. LOL

    Back to turtlefest...

    I think each participant should get 1 shirt included if possible? but up to you?

    Yes of course. It wouldn't become a tradition if we didn't follow tradition!

    Ross, you will love this. The winery is called, "The Copper Dock". All the roofs are being done in copper as is all the trimmings. I can already see us having to rent the entire facility for the whole weekend. Lets set a goal of 100 participants. If we get to 100, we'll shoot for 200. Blaine, you best be getting into those turtle ponds. Your gonna need a lot of turtles. Hope ya don't loose no fingers or toes to one of them snappers! LOL

    I will rebuild the smoker with a new tank and new motor, paint it all up, add chrome stacks too. Might as well revive that old thing. It did a pretty good job after 30 years setting idle. Yes sir Mr. Mike, me and you on the hog duties.

    Lets hope by then I can drag my own deer out.... I get fixed and back to normal you won't know what to think. I can actually be hard to keep up with in the woods when I'm not broken... Be glad I killed mine 1st so it gave you some practice before you got that buck of yours... LOL

    Well at least it will come with drag handles. I guess he hasn't told you about the 165lb button buck he shot. LOL
    Oh, and by the way, we don't drag deer, we carry them!!

    The button buck I thought was a large doe with a baby. Unfortunately they were both buttonheads and both died from a 12 gauge slug. Unfortunately I killed a future monster and possibly 2. I became a better and more careful hunter after that. The big one had an 18 1/2 inch neck and was sold on here years ago to someone out west. I believe they took it to the 99 or 01 World Show and took a blue ribbon with it. They weren't dragged either... None of my deer are...

    You can ask Ross about dragging deer. Ole Dan is the most stubborn mule around when it comes to that. The other night when I shot those Does I put the deer sled about 5 feet from her and one of the guys started to pick her up by the legs and I said "whoa wait a minute what are you doing?" He said he was going to drag her over to the sled. I told him, No your not.... I knocked down the thorn bushes and saplings next to her put the sled over the top of them and told him, now you can put her right into the sled. He said dragging her that little bit wasn't going to hurt her, I asked if he was the one mounting it.... Needless to say he shut up and hauled her out of the woods and up about a 40 foot hill... LOL The hide is beautiful..... ;D

    Unlike gator wars with this much time I believe I can arrange the time off work. Can we bring our own turtles?

    I don't have a problem with it as long as it isn't an Alligator snapper. Alligator Snappers are protected here in Illinois. Dan
