It amazing how many different brands of knives I saw being used in 'Nam. Of course,a Randall was the choice of many but I saw my fair share of Buck Specials.

When folks return from the service and if they choose to do outdoor pursuits,usually they choose a knife made by the company that made the knife they used in the military.

I got back a couple of days ago with no eventful skinning chores done as I was "buck-hunting" and only saw 2 "shooters" (for me anyway) and they were marginal. I will make my final trek the later part of next week....to be continued...
Stay Sharp,

Watch out for the sly ones!

Rob,
That's a good one!!!

A number of times hunters have approached downed game thinking they were down,but got a sudden surprise when they got close!!!

Eyes open and glassed over....dead,eyes closed....not so much.

...."&"...It's CARBON! Nice one Mike!
Oh...& everyone: I'm Baaack! Saw many deer, to include 4 nice 3 1/2 year olds with nice racks...just too young and in need of another year or 2.
Took a couple of more does (We have tooo many), "BUT"...temperatures 11 degrees one morning and 12 degrees another meant no butchering at the hunting camp as the water was turned of to the cleaning shed to prevent pipes bursting...so...to the processor they went.
Great time with good folks and I am finished for this year. The lovely Elizabeth is looking at a right shoulder replacement and rotator cuff repair, "both" on her right shoulder...& she's right-handed! I'll be on medical jury duty for the 2-3 months!
..."&"...after that, I'm looking at surgery on my "left" shoulder!
FYI...
Stay Sharp,
Capt. Chris

Capt,
Glad to hear that you had a good hunt. You can always count on the weather not co-operating.

Hope all goes well with the medical procedures for you and the wife.
