Yesterdays shed hunt
« on: February 26, 2009, 08:46:16 AM »
I spent most of the day yesterday looking for a certain set of shed to one of our big bucks with no luck at all.  Rich and his dog came to help us in the afternoon but unfortunately we didnt run across them.  Then to make the day worse we found another buck that we hadnt seen since early this year that didnt make it.  He still had a little bit of velvet on his rack so I would guess he died in late August to early September.  Nothing but a pity.  He totalled out at 153 4/8 when I scored him this morning, a great score for an 8 pointer but such a tragic loss.

That is a great 8 point and what a shame.  You think it was blue tongue?

Right on. I built a regerative bio mass plant in Carthage, Mo about 8 or 9 years ago. Haven't built a sewer transfer or a waste water treatment plant in a while though.
