I have been a member here for almost four years and have really enjoyed my time spent on the forum!
My first safari was 2018 and I received an incredible amount of information and some very helpful opinions and
insights. Something that I have really appreciated about the forum is the sense of community and comradery
that most seem to share! Well I have received a stage three rectal cancer diagnosis and have got to admit it is a little
daunting. I am secure in my faith and I know god has a plan but there is still a lot of uncertainty. I put a contract for a mountain goat
hunt in Alaska on our refrigerator that was supposed to be for December 2020 and is now taking place in 2021!
I intend to make that hunt, lol!!
So to make a long story short I would sure appreciate any prayers the same way I have appreciated all the insight!
I’ll be praying for you buddy get this thing whipped and get that goat!

Sorry to hear this Kevin.

My wife has gone through it, twice, and prevailed, so yes, it can be done.

Above all, stay positive.

Wish you the very best.

Ive been a surgeon over 30 years specializing in cancer! And the survival rates of colorectal cancer
has improved each year! With neoadjuvent chemotherapy and radiation we are able to down stage almost all rectal cancers so surgery is much more successful. Now with the addition of new biological
drugs we have dramatically altered this disease!
I can't emphasize to much how keeping the faith and a positive attitude are so important. Each step in the treatment is one more hurtle and your way to full recovery! I have several thousand cancer survivors in my practice and they are my heroes, I look forward to adding you to that list!

“...Where two or more ask for something in my name it shall be given..” there are already 65 prayers for you Kevin! Somehow I get the feeling you are going to win this one!
Prayer sent!

You will most certainly be in my prayers. Despite the diagnosis I hope you are able to have a wonderful Christmas with those you love. God will see you through this and you will be most certainly hunting mountain goats in no time.

Very sorry to hear of your upcoming challenge...especially at this time of year. I'll be keeping you in my thoughts for sure. As so many others have already stated, keep a positive attitude and take this head on with all the support of others. My sister has beaten cancer twice now. She never seemed to be the strong type and we were all terrified for her, but she showed a strength and positivity we never knew she possessed. Keep your goals in sight and fight my friend!

My family’s prayers go out to you. Stay strong in faith. My sons are heavily involved robotic surgery and highly recommend if possible look at this route.

Stay positive brother. And keep faith. All the best to you and I pray for your speedy recovery. I just did my goat hunt back in September. One of the greatest experiences of my life. Get well so you can experience it for yourself.

I have a like new VC .450 I might part with. I had it built in 2013 and it has served me well. Also have a VC fitted leather trunk case for it along with the plastic case it came with. I'll take 14000 for all of it.

Hi Jody,
I have been looking for ideas on the best way to display my European mounts from Africa. I came across some of your shield work and was wondering if you would be willing to make one for me? If so, please let me know the cost. I like the shield with the two spears that you built for a member years ago. Thanks.
