He'll step outa the truck and have an elk laying on the ground with a white flag in its mouth. He'll be home in time to see the sun rise.

Well,
I'm beyond being :mad: :mad: :mad: to the max.

Was told last night,I'd get a call between 10:00a.m. & 11:00 a.m.
To set up a time to meet this afternoon & hunt the rest of the day.
I called the guy 3X after 12 noon today.
I till have not heard word back from him. ::) ::) ::)

What ever happened to a hand shake & a mans word?

I could of been out Duck Slaying today.
Total waste of my time & day off sitting around for a so called phone call.

How many times I could count when people have done that to me.
I just don't understand the reasoning when somebody says, I want to take you hunting, or you can hunt with me, or whatever, and you show up on time, dressed, gassed up, ready to go, and they meet you at the door in their jammy's. I just walk away...last time they go with me. Whats amazing is that some of these people post on boards that they just don't have any place to hunt and when you offer them a place, and your dogs are loaded up, you drive 50 miles to meet them, and they don't show up and won't answer their phones.......I just don't understand. :mad:

Sorry about your luck on this deal. Some peoples word isn't worth a damm. Thats sad

I was really looking forward to killing an elk after waiting a ***** age to go again.
The meat was gonna help us & some friends out.( Not anymore)


It is best that,I never see or talk to this guy ever again.

Bull:
No,it wasn't the only day I could go.
I'd take a day or better off from work for an elk.

This was a 90% chance of a kill- elk hunt.
I have still not heard word form the guy who said he'd take me.

Sorry to hear about the guy bailing on you and not even having the balls to tell you, he couldnt make it. I am official now...I guess. I got my huntting license, sill permits, and even an orange hat! I have not been able to find an orange vest/jacket in Lawton. I can not belive there isnt a good sporting goods store. I guess a trip to OKC is in my future.

If you need someone to go with you elk hunting or help pulling it out of the feild let me know. Now that the wife and kids are settling in I am game. I can play " packer" here, might have to barder for beer on Kodiak!! Those hills are steep!

Not even in wally world?? I guess by this time they are probably in short supply everywhere. I was at the Stillwater walmart on Thursday, and they had some but very few.

I think I have three or four. I find them on the side of the road as I have a 45 mile drive to my hunting area. I guess they take them off and put them in the back of their trucks, then get blown out.
I'll send you one if you need it right away.
