First time I've been on here for about 6 years but attending my daughter's wedding in Boise last weekend got me thinking about all the good times I spent in the marshes and rivers of SE Idaho. Took me a couple years longer than I planned but I announced my retirement at the end of this school year and will now have time to come visit my kids and spend time running dogs and hunting in ID next year. I see that the outfitters got their way and now you have to compete with them for hunting spots. Sad to hear but I guess it was inevitable - money talks. If you see an old fart with a yellow lab in a Gator Trax with a Mudbuddy Kawasaki 29 at the ramp come over and say hi. Afraid I can't get the wife to move back out there full-time but now that I have an "anchor baby" in Boise I can get her to come out for visits at least. Then I'll put her on the plane back to Illinois and go hunting! Good to see there are still some of the old crowd still on here. Guess I'll be hanging out here once in a while again. Have a great season and leave a few for next year!
