A Sincere Thank You

A Sincere Thank You - 01/11/04 01:11 AM

This is the first time that I have experienced the annual hunt, and I am doing so by proxy, as I can not attend this year. I am writing this to give a hearty thanks for all of the hard work that appears to have been done on this so far. I know you guys are dedicated, this much is obvious. What I propose is this, if anyone of you guys that have worked so hard in making this happen, if anyone of you ever are in Oklahoma, I will personally give you a guided hunt for free, for both yotes and bobcats. If you come in November or April, I will guide you on a Whitetail hunt or Turkey for free as well, whatever is in season. All this will cost you is your transportation, your licenses, ammo and film. I will cover food and lodging. plan on spending 2 days, because we will cover both Eastern and Western oklahoma. Hopefully I can get Northern Oklahoma covered also, so that would be 3 days.

Please let me know if my offer misses anyone from the following list:

Crapshoot
NASA
Critr Gitr
RanUtah
JasonElPaso
Michael McCasland
Mike Paul

These are the names that I see are doing a lot of the pre-event work. I don't want to leave anyone out, so please feel free to chime in if you have done some work to help these guys out, or, are just supervising the work that they are doing.

Wow Jeff, I don't know what to say. Thank you doesn't seem enough. The Mods and Pro-Staff do a lot more behind the scenes work than ever gets seen in the general Forums. We like to joke about the "big bucks" we get for working here. But the truth is, the only payment we get is the appreciation you folks show when our efforts pay off.
I won't be able to make it to the Annual Hunt, either. But I'll still work my butt off to make sure that those who can, have an experience they will remember.
It's all about you guys, the members. We do it for you. Jeff, your offer is very generous, and very gratifying. Thank you.

I went out and called at some of my old stompin grounds. I only had a pistol with me, and wasn't hunting. I made 20 stands in 2 days, and called in 3 bobcats, 2 foxes, 12 coyotes and a crap load of crows. This is all in land in SE Oklahoma, so, I decided to offer ya'll a 3 day hunt down there, and a 1 day hunt in western Oklahoma. I don't have many places to hunt out there, but it would still be fun.

Maybe we could some of the guys that went to Globe to come in with us if we wanted to make it a social hunt instead of a 1 on 1 or 2 on 1 type of deal. Just a thought.

We have a few. I think that we could have a lot of fun. We just aren't seeing the numbers of animals this year that we had last though.
