Steve & Thadp – well that is two of the crowd. I’d like to see Tim and Kevin chime in. Be cool as hell if the old CA gent Rik piped up.
Woodies are starting to flood the Bighorn according to my buddy. I’ll be his was next week during dove, then just gotta wait the month. Need some moisture to fill up some mud holes I shoot, if not it’ll be back to the fields and the ‘horn.
Damn good to see both of you.

Kevin, my condolences to you and the family. Your Father raised a helluva son, he must have been a helluva man.

Nice. Good to hear everyone is healthy. Never got to be a big brother myself. Just the asskicked little brother.
BillJune 29, 2015 at 7:22 am #9733
nice. i thought it was an appropriate time line – he didn’t seem like a fella who was into making snap decisions concerning the rest of his life.
congrats to them.

BillMarch 22, 2015 at 6:53 am #9053
Sadness. As I told you when you were up my way. Simply honored to be with you.
Not much else I can say, keep the faith bro.
BillMarch 18, 2015 at 11:30 am #9034
Tim, hope your day is overkill. Literally. Took this year off from snows, now I wish I was going.
Hoping the 15-16 year is more successful than this year.

Damn, I’m thinking of blowing off this years snow goose hunt. Then you fellas up and post. Now I’m once again questioning my decision. Aw, only time will tell.
BillFebruary 19, 2015 at 10:22 am #8973

Nice work on this edition fellas.

I’ll be damned. I gave up calling. Figured he knew how a phone worked. Not even sure the assistant ever gave him the message I’d called.

Doug, just had the packer coat and the double tin bibs re-waxed this year at the factory. Lotta work to get cleaned up prior to shipment, but the pay-off was worth it. Closet still smells like heaven.
I’m with ya.

Doug and his son LD are good folk. Too bad the weather and the birds failed to cooperate, but thats kinda the way things seem to work out for us fellas.
Kevin, ya be a good gent for doing this.
Did take a couple of newb’s out last week, shot some honkers – their first successful goose hunt. Kinda cool that one of the fellas brought an older yellow dog out that can’t do the roosters anymore, but retrieved his 1st goose without a problem. 9 year old bitch and hadn’t ever picked up waterfowl. He got some phone video that actually turned out pretty well.
Yesterday took one of the same fellas and his son out – same deal. His son shot his 1st goose @ 12, most gratifying moment since I had called ’em in from about 400 yards heading away. Now I need some more bats from skeediddy when he goes to the slugger joint to give away as a lure to get more hunters out.

Damn dude – don’t you ever stay home? HAHAHA
Hope all your journeys are safe, tiring and enjoyable.
BillDecember 20, 2014 at 4:35 am #8840
yu are probably correct. this should go thru most of the fun stuff – some wrenching, some cutting, some welding, some metal beating back into shape and a couple 3 gallons of green and maybe 1.5 gallons of yellow thru the sprayer. now if the hydro isn’t shot and this is simply repairs – i will be good. i knew this wasn’t exactly gonna be perfect but i haven’t ran into a machine that had so little maintenance done to it for a spell. evidently some folk don’t enjoy garage time like i do. hahaha
BillDecember 18, 2014 at 3:41 pm #8837
Damn, I’ve spent over 3 hours just digging the crap out of the hydro transmission area. Finally found the screw on filter and the main culprit to the major leak issue. Broken hydraulic line that feeds the hydraulic spool was severed at the fitting, still waiting on John Deere for delivery of service manual and parts manual. This is gonna be a helluva lot longer project to get it up and running than I was led to believe. Disc brakes appear to be completely shot, many springs are broken, entire wiring harness needs to be rebuilt, most of the hardware is loose. Mule drive cover needs to be welded prior to use of either snowblower or mower deck. Mower deck is missing the 1st in line quill and I may have to cut and reweld a new section in since this is now canted severely.
Glad I spent only what I did, looking at the minimum of 1500 to get most of it going, at that is only going to be the mechanicals. If I do a complete teardown/paint & reassembly I’m guessing 2000 to 2500.
The old “buyer beware” has come back to bite my ass.

Sad news. Condolences.

Damon, that damn calcium chloride is nasty stuff. Pumped way too much in the old family garage. I’m looking for some wheel weights and I’ll build a suitcase weight holder for the front. I’m thinking I’m going with lugged tires on the rear and the old 3 rib style on the front. I’ve got some work to do prior to 1st out of the garage trip, but it should be fun.
Sun shined on this dogs ass last week.
BillDecember 8, 2014 at 10:29 pm #8814
yu, we back to early fall weather. All week temps are gonna be in the 40’s or possibly 50’s. No snow cover, river has re-opened and I still haven’t been goose hunting. My bad, working ot like the whore I am. 2 days off since the 3rd of November.
It has gotta happen at some point – doesn’t it?
BillNovember 17, 2014 at 9:11 am #8768
bang. good for you. looks like the weather turned in kentucky or is about to.
hunting should be good. i’m still waiting for next week.
BillNovember 16, 2014 at 9:02 am #8760
damn i miss the old gang. fairly sure it will never be the joint it once was, but life moves on.
mark, i’m checking in nearly everyday – i’m guessing at least 5 days a week.
