Just returned from the annual expedition to the Maine North Woods. Negative results.
Package of books was awaiting my return.
Spirits instantly lifted! Thanks!

My copy came a couple of days ago. Just in time as I got in two days of deer hunting before a bout with the flu has sidelined me. I went right to the 250 Savage data as I just took possession of my latest build in this classic of deer calibers. I second the great idea of putting the cartridge designation on the side of the page. My hats off to Eileen and excellent idea.
I was a bit surprised to see no data for either the 22/250 or 250/3000 and H380 though.

That was actually suggested by more than one Campfire member, which made sense!

Ha, thinking back, I believe I was one of them! I had completely forgotten.
Enjoying the book - thanks for writing it for us, and for all the years of careful testing that went into it.

Eileen reminded me that she did the same thing in her big game cookbook Slice of the Wild, but of course the tabs were different: Field to Gambrel, Gambrel to Table, and rather than separating elk from deer, or deer from antelope she set tabs for Tender, Tougher, Stew and Burger, Grill, Fry, Cover & Cook. Three tabs per recipe page, and her favorite tab—Rogue’s Gallery. That’s photos of individual game animals we took, with details on weather, how we handled them, how they tasted.

She wanted an assortment of conditions and animals, and had a lot of fun looking through our photo files remembering those hunts, and dinners, including the time she killed a nice tender muley buck and it froze overnight. Lots of details on what can go wrong and what you can and can’t control and how the cook deals with it.

Ha, indeed. I can't even spell "subordinate clause". (Claws, Claus, clahz,...) Just because you don't want to share the recipe.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving, sir.

Thanks!

Dunno what's next. Am turning 70 next week and recently took another major step toward retirement--which have been doing for the past few years. (My "retirement" technique reminds me a lot of the old Johnny Cash song "One Piece at a Time," where a guy builds himself a Cadillac with parts brought home from the factory over a number of years....)

But as one of my older writer friends, the late Charlie Waterman, once said: "Old writers never retire, they just write less." When Charlie passed away in his early 90s he was still writing at least one monthly magazine column....

Happy Birthday a little early John. I just turned 70 myself the end of October and have been easing into full time retirement for several years. It's a great time to be alive, upright and taking nourishment. Enjoy your special day and welcome to a new decade. I'm enjoying GG4 very much thank you for all your efforts.

Happy birthday, JB. I hit 71 yesterday. Glad we can still do what we want, and need, to do.

Yep, getting this far and still being able to hike and hunt is a pretty good deal!
