As I was rocking down the road through Wyoming and into Nebraska I put on over 800 miles Saturday.
Sadly Wyoming was void of antelope.

Hunting buddy Tim set 1500 snow goose decoys.
Monday tim kept sending texts ,
Just killed two"
Just killed three"
Hurry up and get Daisy here, the coyotes just beat me to a goose"
Bring the sunscreen, In a T shirt. "
Have to go back to camp for more shells"

And his texts carried on. He had a big day for a winter Conservation hunt ; 33 geese

Al the time I m driving in high wind
