    You spend more time concocting big bore loads than with your family.
    Your favorite reading material is a reloading manual.
    You rearrange floor and wall space to fit more trophies.

    You buy a 'sound spa' so that you can fall asleep to "Sounds of the Tanzanian bush"

    The whole time you're at the zoo,
    you're judging trophy quality and shot angles.

    1. When you argue with your wife that Peter Hathaway would make a great name for your first child.

    2. You start sporting short inseam shorts and Courtney’s to social events.

    3. Your friends know you are so ate up with it they go to great trouble to fly in a case of Castle for you so you’ll quit bitching that you can’t get Castle in Texas!

    When you take a second look at cattle in the distance to make sure they are just cattle and not a buffalo

    The UPS driver smiles when he drops off a package at your office that he knows is ammo because of the weight.

    Your 13-year-old son’s favorite meat is Hartman’s Zebra.

    Your mom commented once that she likes the blue wildebeest rug... so you give it to her immediately and mentally update your list for the next hunt.

    (The Courtney boots CC PIN number is hilarious!!)

    When you estimate shot distance using pets in the park.

    When you draw your imaginary bow at something at least twice a day.

    The amount of ‘charging’ dogs I’ve dropped with my non-existent Westley Richards double...

    I often wonder as I punch in my PIN number how many of us gun nuts have one that is associated with a gun or cartridge?

    *You check this site everyday

    *When you fly, you look at the map in the back of whatever airlines magazine, and dream of taking any of the routes that get you to Africa

    *You look at your taxidermy, and loose track of time daydreaming of how each stalk went, and then dream some more about a possible future stalk!
