NOTICE TO ALL MEMBERS FROM THE ADMIN TEAM

The forum has been put into “read only” mode to temporarily stop any further posting. This is needed to ensure that all data can be migrated across to the new forum without interruption. It appears that some of you are still able to post (perhaps because you were logged in at the time the forum was switched to “read only” and have not subsequently logged out). That was not intended to be the case, so please STOP making any further posts.

We are still awaiting advice from the Developer team on when the new forum will go live. When it does, you will no longer see the orange banner message at the top of the page and you will need to log in again. You will also need to renew your password (but you should be able to re-use the same password that you currently have). Passwords cannot be transferred across to the new forum because they are encrypted for your security.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE

Thanks for the comments everyone. I am please to share my good fortune. This is one of the probably 10 best pieces I have found in almost 30 years. Sometimes it pays to be lucky instead of good. That day, I parked and decided to walk an area of a creek I had not hunted before. I was going to walk two hours and turn and walk back. I walked by this thing twice! I stopped to call home about 3/4 the way back and looked down and saw two brokens between my feet. She says "you better look around there."- DUH! I saw it in about two steps back, told her "its a drill" and promptly hung up on her.

Thanks Sport.The water had been way up in the early spring and when it went down, there it was laying about 10 feet above the creek. I think it had just washed out.
