Wish I was within striking distance

Oh Homey,

I wish you were too.
We could shoot air rifles and also launch some sharp sticks from the porch, grill some sausages, drink some cervezas and have some laughs, like we used to do up at that old tree house.
But I know your career has taken you far away and you’ve done well.
I salute you.

Best regards,
Your old Pops.

Fantastic write up, thanks for sharing. I’m currently conversing with Phillip about a trip so I appreciate the insight.

We need man cave pics of your trophies now that you’ve received them!

Fin,

I’m totally remiss in not posting photos of my taxidermy delivery.
My only weak excuse is that even though I’m retired, I’ve been working a lot (supposed to be part time but, Murphy’s Law is in full play).
I will post soon.
Thanks for the jump-start.
I needed it.

Cheers,
Paul.

Hi again MT_Fin,

Today, I battled my computer to post photos.
Spent a couple hours or more on it.
Was experiencing success dragging and dropping photos, until approximately photo #10 or # 12 I guess.
At this point, suddenly POOF, that particular photo suddenly decided to cover the full page.
I tried to figure out what to do but, nothing would budge until I decided to just delete it.
With that, all my photos disappeared.

As you can see, they do still exist in "thumbnail" size, at the bottom of this post.
Furthermore, I have more to post on this taxidermy topic but haven't dragged and dropped them all yet.
But, I'm convinced that since a computer is involved, there will be further failure, if I try to touch any of them.
It's 10:30 PM here now so, I'm giving up until some other day.
Probably won't be soon, because I don't need the boost in blood pressure at my age.
Sorry.

Paul.

Thanks. I understand the frustration with the computer. I enjoy what you have sent thus far. I look forward to the rest when possible.

Hi gesch,

Of course now, after a good night’s sleep (spent dreaming of smashing computers with a big hammer), I sign into the forum and again POOF, more computer black magic, suddenly my photos are full size LMAO.

Cheers,
Velo Dunce.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

Hi TT
I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
