Default Itís time!!!!!! The final leg of the grand slam.

Well, tomorrow morning starts the conclusion of my Texas grand slam. Junior and I will leave Amarillo around 5 am and head just outside of Channing to hunt antelope. We were going out tonight but itís his high school homecoming game and apparently thatís important! I have my tag from the state and I bought one for Junior. Hopefully we can knock two down this weekend. Kind of bittersweet doing a rifle hunt on the archery opener but itís hunting and Iím excited. Going to let the Alamo Precision 6.5 PRC do a little more work!!!!!

On a sad note, this will be my last hunt for a few weeks. Iím having neck surgery on 10/2 and will be out of commission for a while. Sorry I havenít been around much, life gets busy!

Iím having 2 level ACDF. My surgeon is the infamous braindoc from the old star s days. He has been a great friend for many years! He says no bow shooting for 2 months. Little doc says this is the year I help them hunt. Iíll do that but I have a crossbow sighted in and ready. My archery desert bighorn Hunt is in March. Gonna be interesting trying to prepare for that.

It hasnít been that long! Feels like forever for me since the desert bighorn. Gonna be a slow year but Iíll do what I can. Iím old and in need of a tune up. But, I will be back. I have this hunt and a desert bighorn on Carmen island coming up. Plus I have tule elk next September. Iíll try to keep you boys entertained.

I appreciate all the well wishes! I worked hard to get the lease set up early for junior and lil doc. Iíll be guiding a bunch. Not sure who will drag and lift the critters. Might be an adventure.
