The time I spent in Globe will not soon be forgotten. Meeting those who I have chated with on the board and learning from them will be invaluable to me.

The 30th, I hunted with Duane@ssu because his partner was not able to make it that day. What Michael McCasland said in his post is true. Duane is a deticated and hard core hunter. The pig story they both told was too funny.
Duane called in a Javalina boar and a coyote the first stand. I had never seen a mouth called used in the field and Duane did a fine job of showing how it's done.
However about the time I was fixin to shoot the coyote, my hunting partner Bill Rice showed up looking for me, (a simple communication error)the coyote was in the wind.

That was the last coyote I saw for 3 days. However Bill in his soft spoken way and easy going manner, tried everything he could to find us critters. Luck was not on our side. It made no difference to me, as I learned alot from Bill and he was the second real coyote hunter I'd hunted with in 4 years of calling. Duane was the first. Thank you Duane for sharing your experiences and showing your funny wit about you. It was a pleasure to say the least.

Bill and Duane both built up my confidence is using mouth calls, while I was with them. I was pretty much and ecaller till I came to Globe, not anymore.

For those of you who don't believe in ladder hunting, well let me say it can work. Michael McCasland the night I met him, gave me a demonstration upon request and I was impressed. It was a pleasure Michael (not Mike)to spend the time talking with you.
I was convinced it was another tool and clearly away to work heavy brush, when I watched Bill set up his ladder and work his calls. The way Bill set up, he clearly blended in with the surroundings. It is not really the hassle you think to carrying and set up.

Even though Bill almost won all the guns and I slipped him a note with the word AS@#*&% written on the back, he proved that he was a true gentleman and put one of the guns back in the pot for someone else to win. Bill thank you for your time it was a pleasure.

For Critr and Jason and the time we talked and for all the time you spent putting this thing together, I thank you both very much.

Bill Gardner you have a generous heart and a fine personality sir, thank you. Thank you for what you and Tasha have done in help keeping this website open. Tasha your a lucky lady.

Bill as far as your friend Todd, who hunts baar's and deeers and drinks beeer, please bring him along next time too. Todd is was fun talking to you and you made me laugh more than once with your stories.

Rita and Matt, it was nice to meet you finally. It was moving during Bill's reading of Will's vision. I'll never forget that! Thank you for carrying on Will's wish.

Encore and Big Jerk it was a pleasure to finally meet you two funny guys.

22-250 you are the man driving all the way from home to Globe, not sleeping and then going on 19 stands the same day. Glad your boy got his first coyote.

Bvomark it was a pleasure to talk to you about your kind of hunting and fishing back home.

Robb thanks for your hard work in putting this hunt together and I still wouldn't wear shorts like you do in cold weather.

Craig Hamilton your a true cowboy and gentleman and it was an honor to speak with you. Hopefully next year I will get a chance to hunt with you.

Wiley thanks for your instruction on hunting and calling coyotes. If I was alot bigger than you, I would of made you do some real mouth callin and had you howl like you did for Critr.

Nasa, TJ, Tackdriver, Mike, Randy, Kevin, Onefoot, I was glad to have crossed paths with you all.

And for those of you I did not talk with, I'm the one that probably missed out.

Hopefully next year will be bigger yet.

First of all I would like to say that I had a blast! For those of you that couldn't make it, you have got to come next year! You will never have a better time or the opportunity to meet such a fantastic group of guys ever! I'm still very excited about it and look forward to next year.

I think special thanks go out to Jason,Critter and Craig Hamilton. These guys did a lot on Sunday to make the Get Together a great success. No one asked these guys to do it either as they took it upon themselves willingly.

Rita, I didn't get the chance to thank you for your donation of Will's chronagraph. I looked around for you, but you had already left. I just happened to be in the market for one when I won this one and knowing that it was Will's makes it very special to me. I am deeply moved for it, Thank You.

Dogboy, Thanks for the laughs and you know what I'm talking about.

BigJerk, Thanks for the loan of your gun, Guys, his screen name is a total contradiction of who he really is.

I truly hope everyone had a great as time as I had and am looking forward to next year!!!

Well, it was awesome meeting you all..Wish I could have spent more time hunting but cest la vie.

Can't wait until next year, I'm sure it'll be much larger requiring the rental of the entire reservation..heh heh.

Dogboy, I don't care what anyone says, you're just as ill as the rest of us...You one funny man GI. Hopefully we can get out and bust some dogs together.

I'm real dissapointed I didn't get to hunt with Craig on Saturday due to the travel thing, but maybe someday.

Randy, it was real nice meeting you and Mike. These two guys folks are great people.

Rita and Matt, it was a pleasure meeting both of soon as the state pardons me, I'll be back..

Well, it's taken me this long to clear up business, so I can have time to goof off on the internet. I'd just like to say that I had the second best time of my life in Globe. I'll post details in another thread, but to those who didn't make it, "You missed out on meeting some of the Best People in the World". The scenery, fun, stories,the BS, and the overall generosity was alone worth the trip. My son TJ and I want to thank everyone for their part in making this event a truly memorable experience. We will NEVER forget it. Thank you all.
