Oh, I almost forgot....
......... How do you get those pesky nuisance animals to leave your badger bait alone?
..........

I've heard using a larger caliber rifle at the little red spot on this picture will aid in the reduction of bait consumption.

Royal hope you have a blast. From the photos, it looks like you will be hunting 24 hours per day.

Have a great time with Bossie and Beans. Sounds like a fun time.

Look forward to hearing all about it.

Thanks Bob!

Bossie promised me at least three hours per day to relax. I told him it didn't seem like much time to be at the lodge and he said that relaxing time was in the blind. :eek: :rolleyes: :cool:

In all seriousness I don't think either Bossie or Beans is planning to have much down time and I wouldn't have it any other way! I can sleep at home.

The first fun of the trip!!!

Sitting in the airport with @buddy48 and had a lady come sit next to me and ask if I hunted Africa. Told her I did of course.

She told me that people like me don't have a conscious and will pay for it in the afterlife, basically that I was going to hell for the sin of hunting. I smiled and told her to have a great trip. No sense talking to people like that.

We've had a good laugh and maybe it made her feel better too. ;)

Good for you Royal - but it's easier to have that perspective when you're off on an adventure, rather than sitting down to dinner in a restaurant! However, I resolve to take your example . . .

It really was funny... when she sat down and asked I could already see the hate in her eyes. So I wasn't blindsided. Smiling and telling her to have a nice day made her madder than anything else I could have said. She was one of those for sure!

Good for you royal. I couldn't have resisted the temptation to tell her where and how to piss off.

Hi the dude in the picture. It would be cool to know the area (genetics) of the stag you have in your profile picture. I am from New Zealand and shot a stag here that is almost identical, especially the throw backs. I can send you a photo to prove I'm genuine with my enquiry.
