Thanks Bob, it is coming along, got the curves evened up and out to 52@24, just a few more lbs off and a couple more inches and it should be ready to shoot in. :) So far so good but at least for me you never know with Yew. ;) :) :)

I was always a "Nervous Nellie" working on Yew, have never really trusted it, even knowing it's a Great Wood! Bob

Great weekend, the shoot went well and everyone seemed to like the set up, I was so busy with the shoot and trying to get a few things done for our trip I didn't take a picture one  ??? I guess I am getting old and when I though of pictures it was Saturday night after everything was over.
Headed down this morning to put new LED lights in my trailer and get my spike camp and day pack packed and load a few things in the trailer. We are heading out a week for tomorrow so time is short and still lots to do. :) Hope I don't forget something  :-[ ;) ;) ;) I can hardly wait to smell that Mountain air.  :) Life is Good. ;)

Where are you headed, Pappy?  I did the unthinkable and drew a decent elk tag.  We'll be up on the hill the weekend after next, and if necessary I have a couple four-day weekends after that.  Gonna be a great time!

We go to the flat tops in white river national forest, east of Meeker about 40 miles, Big fish lake/Marvine lake area, love it because their is no ATV's if you are in there it is on foot or horse so you don't have to worry if you are setting on top at day light after a 2 hour pack in someone will come putting up on a 4 wheeler or side by side, ;) pretty peaceful and don't see many people.

Gators also Steve. ::) ;) :) Thanks WB, yes we love the area, just beautiful country. Guess i better get up stairs and talk with Miss Joanie, with all that is going on I almost forgot one of the best days in my life, August 24th 1973 I made her my wife after dating her 7 years, pretty much she and I have been together all our lives, started going together at 13, not sure how she has put up with me that long but Thank the Good Lord every day that she has. 49 years married today at 5 pm. WOW where does time go.  ;) :) :) :) Life is truly very good.  :)

Happy anniversary Miss Joanie and Pappy. You have been married almost as long as I've had my beard.
I know you guys will have many more years of happiness together.  8)
  Good luck to you and Beau in Colorado. I know just being there is quite special especially with just the two of you together.
