    Dove Recipes

    For a bit of a change, try searing them quickly with a bit of olive oil in a very hot pan (no more than 30 sec. per side) and then add them and simmer about 15 min. in a basil marinara sauce to top off your macaroni of choice.

    THESE ITEMS HAVE BEEN SOLD ALREADY. I have a Bogen 3431 leg set with a 3265 head that I'll be listing, but I'm in Glendale.

    Taxidermy advice

    I believe that 130 1/8" P&Y buck is Sergio Orozco's, which is on the cover of HOW TO HUNT COUES DEER. The story of how he killed it is in the TALES chapter.

    Gov tag buck

    No. It was killed in NM a few years ago by Mike Gallo, who I think is the same guy that killed the deer in this thread. Until then, two bucks from AZ were tied for the B&C world record. I believe CWT member Marvin Zieser (stickflicker) still has the P&Y record while another NM 'lope is the top SCI one.

    The family at the cabin and a bachelor or 2

    I killed my very first deer, a buck with 12" spikes, in the Catskills in 1960 with a Marlin 336 30/30.
  7. Bighorn sheep lottery tag raised over $109,000 for sheep research and management For the Arizona hunter whose ticket was pulled for the 28th Annual Bighorn Sheep Tag Lottery, it represents the hunt of a lifetime. For the Idaho Department of Fish and Game, it means more than $109,000 in funding will benefit wild sheep conservation in Idaho. The lucky winner of the 2019 Bighorn Sheep Tag Lottery was Andrew Tomlinson, a resident of Prescott, Ariz. The Idaho Wild Sheep Foundation held the drawing outside Fish and Game Headquarters in Boise on July 31. Tomlinson was one of around 1,000 people from across the nation who bought anywhere from one to several hundred chances. The winning ticket was drawn by Idaho Fish and Game Director Ed Schriever. In 2019, the lottery raised over $109,000, the second-highest total ever, and the highest for a year in which the lottery tag cannot be used in Hunt Area 11 in H ellโ€™s Canyon. This year, the Idaho Wild Sheep Foundation donated all of the lottery proceeds to the Idaho Department of Fish and Game.

    My reading journey as a very new hunter

    Not likely to happen even though we have sold out the soft-cover version of this one. I'm fully retired now, and doing the necessary rewrites and associated tasks would require lots of hours again. Why? Because it would all have to be put into the PDF files anew -- a major task. In the real world of book authors, they write the text and send it to the publisher to do all the rest. Not so with How to Hunt Coues Deer. When I did the original, I also did all the scanning of photos and then had to transform every image, including the digital ones, into print-ready tiff files. Then I had to edit the articles in the TALES section. A few were not too readable as sent to us. ๐Ÿ˜‰ And of course, I also had to write the rest of the book from scratch and take some fill-in photos of equipment, etc. Once those things were done, it was on to the design and layout so everything fit on a page properly. Wherever text wraps around a photo, you're looking at least 10-15 mins. of work. The photo section took me about 8 days to size and caption them and then to do the layout. I did both for the covers and the inside pages using MS Publisher. The printer then converted those files to PDF files for the actual printing. IOW, everything about doing an entire book by yourself is a labor intensive endeavor. So now you know more than you wanted to know about why there will be no 2019 edition. ๐Ÿคฃ
