|We did good this year getting four does.|
|Finally on the road headed North.|
|Picking a site and trying to find the most level location to set up the camp. The kitchen will be placed on the left and the tent on the right.
"Is there anyplace here that is halfway level!"
|Cleaning up the site with a string trimmer and rakes.|

“We better go deeper. Remember that John is here.

|John, aka the “Big Deal”, putting firewood in the tent and relaxing with a Bud Light.
"Just remember if it fits it ships."
|No Shave November. Sometimes you need a fork to comb your beard.
"Kruger do you a fork?"
|Michigan? or Michigan State?|
|Jimbo is walking the fashion runway.||Jimbo is that cool aid your drinking?|
"Chewie get that camera out of my face, or the next photos will be of you getting a colonoscopy!"

"Chewie I'm going to show you somthing to take a picture of!"
|Kruger is getting a little tired.|
|Dave is walking the fashion runway.||“It is so cold that the Cast Iron Conditioner froze.”|
|Dave is reading the Game Laws.
“John I can’t find anywhere in the Game Laws where it says Cycle and Squeeze. “
|“Chewie, what direction is the wind coming from?”|
|“This is my Cracker Dad”
Just kidding Chewie take a joke.
|Chewie is that sign language for your dirty shocks are hanging from the tent?”|
|Chewie could you show me those warm boots?||What is wrong with your boots?
You melted you boots! That is funny.
|Dear Field and Stream,
|Dear Lake and Trail,
|John is likely to steal the camera and take pictures of anything.||John mesmerized by the colors of the fire.|
|Jimbo is most likely to dance with a rake.||“I feel like you guys are staring at my ass”|

This is Larry’s first deer in 25 years.
