Tom, nice article in Bowhunter. pretty well written for a lawyer. Did you have a ghost writer?

23-Jul-16
Nice: Pretty cool that many of the BowHunter "Guest writers" are discovered on Bowsite:)

Tom: Was the article about the benefits of carrying a spare release? Ha! What a great day hunting that Stag in Newfoundland.

Pat,

With his burgeoning fame as an outdoor writer, I guess we'll need to put a new concrete apron in front of the Kansas lodge.....for his "star". Then, of course, we'll also need to widen the door jambs for his head!!

...and I'll bet that he has "nothing" for a return volley.....ha ha!!

Very nice Tom.. I didn't know Jake and Pat were so jealous of your many talents...Maybe if they hang out with you long enough, they will kill something worth writing about. ;)

Cory,

Don't bother sucking up to him...he STILL isn't going to recognize you at the next P&Y convention....LOL!!

That's funny stuff right there Jake! Unfortunately, I will not be in St. Louis. The big white bear of the North is calling my name...

Another nice piece by Tom, along with Matt and Ron! No surprise, since these guys are world-class hunters as well as top-notch hunting writers.

Tom, I agree that your work is fairly lucid and coherent for a lawyer! :)

Cracks me up when I see posts from nobodies dissing the hunting cred of the guys who write for Bowhunter and other major bowhunting pubs. These guys are the real deal, in hunting, writing, and life.

Thanks guys. I was hoping that it would pass under Pat's and Jake's radar. Oh well the things a guy has to put up with... and how could I forget Cory. I get all of my gear advice from him! Lou you are my hero. I still have too many years until retirement, but when I do, I hope to follow your blueprint. Charlie I think about that hunt often. One of the best hunts that I have ever been on. I would do it again in a heartbeat...and I now travel with three releases!

Well done Tom!

And to think I had the honor of sharing a table at P&Y with a famous author - life will never be the same!!

Get ready for all the single chics showing up at the next Bowsite P and Y Meet and Greet....better double the budget Pat!

"Tom, Tom, will you autograph my bikini top?!!!"

Great article on a unique hunt Tom!

I have not seen a copy of it yet. Did Mr. Tom talk about foot apparel much in the article?

Great article Tom. Thanks Lou! Several excellent hunters and writers from Bowsite and I consider myself lucky to be among that company.

"Tom, Tom, will you autograph my bikini top?!!!"

That could have come from just a night on the town with Ned..... =D Don't really want to know what gets autographed after a night out with Pat.....but have to admit... black sharpie shows up well enough on red....

Pretty cool Tom. We're always a month or so late getting magazines out here... looking forward to reading it.

From: Mark Watkins

Ned, Oh yeah......great amount of detail (a sidebar) on the "home brew cork boots" and using them for traction in Iowa cornfields??

WTH is going on here? I'm confused....

Cazador Tom "Donde son mis zapatos"

Me. "HAHAHAHA"

Guides " Que? Que?"

Me. "Los zapatos de cazador Tom son en el campamento!"

I will buy multiple issues when and if that story is published. Will make for a good read.

Ned, it was published on Bowsite... I seem to remember hearing another story about a guy who climbed into a treestand once and discovered while he was sitting there that he was still wearing slippers. I wonder who that was????

25-Jul-16
What? Never. Congrats on the article. Will look for it.

Is that a porta-potty he's lugging around or a cooler for his Ensure shakes?

25-Jul-16
If I remember correctly, a box of depend undergarments. I didn't give him much crap as I am sure to do likewise in the near future.

Was this after the hunt?

Ned...Which one of those two did you sleep with? That would be a tough call. One I'd rather not ever have to make.

Finally got my copy. Takes a while for the dog team to get to Wasilla. Nice job. Love the color of POW bucks in the fall. I leave in the morning for two weeks of alpine hunting down there. Looks like we might hit a good stretch of weather too.
