      No John, you’re not bloating, but merely sharing the joy. With my elk hunt done and my first whitetail hunt still two weeks away, I am seriously jealous. Enjoy, and make meat as you can.

      I’ll agree with Dave and say that I’m green with envy πŸ˜›

      Shoot straight my friend. Good luck and have a safe hunt. I don’t think you are gloating (or bloating πŸ˜† ). You earned it.

      I hunted the Adirondacks back in the 80’s. Blue Mt. Wilderness area out near Lake Durant and the Indian Lake area. Loved it! You have every reason to share the joy. Have a great time!

      I’m only about 15-20 miles So West of Blue Mt Lake, of course hour and half on the back roads which is fine with me! If there’s gotta be roads I like the small, windy, pretty ones πŸ˜€

      Well guys, leaving “Our Woods” in the late am (named by our two sons as toddlers when they would always ask “when are we going to Our Woods Daddy? πŸ˜€ )

      Deer everyday. Big owl perched on my barn each night. Coyotes singing each night but tonight ( rain maybe keeping them quiet?). Uncooperative trout but scenery too beautiful to mind. No good shots at anything I felt compelled to shoot at.

      If my boys’ weren’t kicking off tomorrow night I wouldn’t be going anywhere….

      Beauty of the whole thing?? I’ll be back up next week.

      Sounds awesome! Reminds me of and old story by Gordon McQuarrie called “Nothing To Do For 3 Weeks”.
