    Title says it all, but this was the 1st chance I've had to hunt on my own, without a kid, and it was a long crawl. Went to some public ground and saw them at about 0945 and got into the crawl about 1000. At 1236 I got within 30 yards and took the 1st one that gave me a shot. He was a pretty good Lumphead too with 1.5" hooks and a 10.5 inch paintbrush, pretty sure he weighed 32 pounds by the time I got back to the truck. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Well, yes, I do carry Rare Breed with me for just such an occasion.

    If I would have drank the first half of the bottle between 9:45 and 10:00 then I think I would have been crawling too!! Congrats!

    Dang, that's a marathon of a crawl, hurts my back just reading about it. Way to grind one out!
