Even better when you been eating mtn house meals for a few days.. well that’s what I been told.. one day I will get to delta jct and visit..

Aren't you (Nugget) the guy who suggested I not admit that I was out of Boston when I was out there chasing bison? Sheeit. One of the local restaurant owners and town assemblymen or whatever is originally out of Maine and has family in Newburyport, MA, where my folks live. He offered to get me permission to hunt 'closed' private areas if we needed. That dude (Ken Greenleaf, originally out of Maine, 25 year Army vet who now owns the Big Delta Brewing Company) and I have loose plans to fish locally when he gets back home for visits.

Another guy, one who granted permission for us to hunt his land, has a 978 area code listed as a contact. When SD and I met him at his residence to talk about hunting bison on his land, discovered that Bob and I knew some of the same families on the MA south shore. When he explained where he was originally from (Marshfield, MA) I asked him if he knew the Roth family. He responded with, 'I went to HS with Kenny and George'. So much for your creepy prediction. I didn't even have to pretend I was an Eskimo...

LOL! How indignant she was.

Her: "I'm just here selling hot drinks (read as my exposed teats and box along with a side of coffee). How DARE you take a picture of me without my permission?"

Me: "Well, let's see. Click, click, click. Just like that, sugar. Come at me"

Her: "here's your change. Have a nice day"

SD: "ha ha ha! He's from Boston, I'm sorry. Keep the change (40 cents or something)"

Me: "So what are you doing Friday night, anyway?

Same here....40+ years and no tag but I've pointed numerous hunters in the right direction. I still enjoy it but after a few pics, I'm back in my truck and gone.
Some of Leighton's bison is going in the crock pot this weekend as Rost was kind enough to drop off a small cooler full. There's not a lot of full freezers in this neighborhood this year.

A huge “Thank You” to KG and all of the fire members that helped make this story happen.

I’d rather read a story like this than any article published in a gun magazine.

Vern! My man! Please look for an incoming PM, brother. I hope you like seafood. Someone's ready to break you off with more than you can imagine ...

That barista had lead weights on her ankles as the wind blows so hard in Delta that we seldom see a small woman.

And he had such a big rifle!
