    Let me ask my son if he's up for that. How old are they?

    Credit Card Hit

    I got a hit on my card!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was my application fee … the only thing I've paid for on Elk in 18 years. Good luck boys and girls.
  3. I was just lucky Casey...you prayed for the pink one!!!!
  4. I am 53 this year … 20 points … resident. I think you put in for what you really want to do. heck … I got drawn for the Strip 2X in 3 years back in about 2008 and 2010. Luck can happen. I also won a car at the Clippers game back when I was 21 … got called down for a half court shot and swished it. LUCK HAPPENS!!! Just put in where you want and for what you want.

    Elk draw

    Always put in if you want a chance to go. There is no pocketing anything. I have not been drawn in 18 years, and with HE and Loyalty have 20 points. I still won't get drawn for Trophy Bull....but I still put in. Someday I will get the Golden Ticket.

    Cute little Boogers. Sire is young for it, but is the Dam OFA and/or CERF Certified? Or is their line certified?
  7. Well … I don't know about you all, but I "took a knee" on the NFL 3 years ago when they failed to uphold standards that I feel are important. Catering to Bloomberg and denying a Pro 2A Advertisement just cements what I have known for years … the NFL panders to the Left and their weak minded rhetoric. This isn't "unrelated to hunting" as hunting will suffer, as will our freedoms and liberties guaranteed by the Constitution, if one of these whacked out Socialists get into power and the Congress (both House and Senate) swing to the Left. Vote with your brains if you want to keep chasing antlers and meat … otherwise get used to sitting home in the fall and winter or resign yourself to the fact that a bow is the only thing you will harvest with. At least until they figure out those are weapons too, and ones they "should take away" so they can continue to erode freedoms.

    Diesel Rebuild Shops

    Before I dive into the full rebuild my plan is to do a leakdown. The mechanic I use for compqny vehicles recommended that, but said the symptoms (to him) seem to indicate I might have bad rings. A leakdown would either support or refute that (or should). My son thought it could be the turbo, which some on here have said as well, but a lot of smoke is coming out of the valve cover breather. Not sure a turbo would do that??? The nuisance stuff isn't a huge deal...I've had it for almost 13 years...a lot of the little stuff has been done in the last 4 or so.

    Diesel Rebuild Shops

    Not sure I buy that it is dumb. Truck has about 40K on the Trans, Torque Converter and Flex Plate. About 10K on the tires. Shocks and both diffs were done in the last 2 years. If I spent $18K on another truck I'd get one with 200K. That is lower than the mileage I have, but I don't know how it has been maintained. At least with this truck I know that. Not saying I'd do it if it were my personal vehicle. heck … I'd buy a 1 Ton Gas if it were mine, just because diesel likes to gel where cold and I am moving to the cold soon. But if the choice is this truck with a reman or a half ton … I am going with this one all day long.

    The reman will take care of that...rings are bad. The rest of the parts are what SHOULD get replaced with the Reman...nit doing it would be dumb.

    Good suggestions. I will get some quotes from these guys.

    Company ride, and I doubt they'll spring $70k, which is what a truck the way mine is set up would cost. Got 1 quote of $18k...easier to swallow that pill. Just hoping for a quote in the $15k range. Otherwise I'll end up with some little junk half ton....no thanks.

    Diesel Rebuild Shops

    Can anyone give a recommendation on a First Rate Diesel Rebuild/Reman shop in the Phoenix Metro Area? I have 470K on the Cummins and she's burning oil at a pretty fair clip. Like to get an estimate to get it completely remanufactured … new Turbo, new Injectors, New Injector Pump, Water Pump … the works. Suggestions?
