    Finally in a free state.
    Thanks man. Knee is better, but it's still going to need to be looked at. The duck killing portion of this trip was important, but there was a whole lot more to it than that. When I get home I'm going to print up some pictures from each state, do a narrative, and build a wall display/frame thing that Mrs. Susie will sit on. I have no idea what the future will bring, but I'd like my kids and grand kids to understand that there's a lot of things out there that are worth seeing and experiencing, and tey aren't all contained in any one state. :tu

    Gene, don't come home now! You are on such a roll, why don't you and Mrs. Suzie keep going? This has been the most widely read thread I can ever remember in the 11 years I've tapped into this forum. You could hunt in Louisiana, Texas, head into Mexico and on south all the way to Argentina before coming home by way of Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Hudson's Bay while the rest of us get the chance to enjoy your photos and writing.

    That would be an interesting adventure - hunt all 13 Canadian provinces in 1 season.
    Labrador, Nova Scotia, NB, PEI, Quebec, Ontario, MB, SK, AB, BC, Yukon, NWT and Nunavut.
    Start Sept 1 and fly in up to Yukon and work east via plane, NWT, Nunakut, NF, and LB. Then fly home. 1st of Oct drive to BC and work your way east ending in the lower Canadian Maritime's in Nov.
    I wonder if any one has ever done this before? I am sure there a few guys that have hunted all 13 over the years, but to do it in 1 season, I wonder?

    Thanks for sharing your adventure with pictures and narritives. I could only dream of seeing a fraction of your trip.

    And dont let that other idiot get under your skin. They come and go and eventually get banned.
