    Kids been having a great time, and like previously stated, it's a lot different as a deckhand than a client. Many, if not all his days are 12-16hrs.
    Tanners parents have relayed that he really seems homesick, although the pics tell a different story. I believe it, he's close to his parents and family.
    He's got a full plate upon his return as he drew a good deer tag, 7a, where he and I will be looking for Mr Big the first week of September for this kid to drop the hammer on. Nobody in his family hunt deer, but I talked him into it and he drew with zero points.
    He was a pretty big kid when he left, and by the looks of his sweater, he's grown just a tad lol.
    Yesterday's pic.

    Heck a lot of the guides in Norcal are in their 50's with several being closer to 60 yrs old.

    You got it Dan.
    It's all about "the experience" with this kid. When he sees something he's interested in he goes for it.
    He's been sending me numerous google earth snapshots of where he wants to hunt, we will look into those spots. Most are vertical and rough climbing, but that's what it will be about, earning a trophy.
    When you get a moment, pm me your taxi info. Appreciate that Dan.
