    Been talking to a couple of members about doing one in Newton County,Arkansas.We have 80 acres of woods up there and lots of wood down from last winter's ice storm....let's also use this as a regional roll call-even if you're not interested in attending.

    Anyone have thoughts on a date?:popcorn:

    I might be interested in going, but will need plenty of notice to get time off of work.

    How is the "chigger" crop this year?If it's after the first frost (that kills the chiggers),I would be in. I'm originally from Joplin.

    Wished I could attend, I always wanted to go to those states. All I know about Oklahoma, is the Three Dog Night tune, "well I've never been to Heaven, but I've been to Oklahoma." That tune Rocks!!

    I'd sure like that too, but Alas, I never applied for a passport yet, so no Canadian's allowed or anyone else for that matter anymore unless they have a passport. Driver's lincence and Birth Certificate don't cut it anymore, but what a hoot it would be! Will be watching the GTG vicariously though.

    If nothing else, could you play this tune at your GTG along with a few liquid refreshments , and then report back to us?
    Cheers,

    To give you a better idea,my wife before she was my wife, I asked her out on a date and almost forgot it was my time. She gladly accepted my date offer and then I said well; I am hunting now but in two weeks or so I will come callin. She knows how important them two weeks are to my sanity so never plans anything at that time of year. I have now hooked her into bow hunting and she killed her first doe. She let a 8 point get the best of her last year which I killed later after it got too cold for her to hunt. Family funerals are the only thing that will interfere in my hunting window 2 weeks before modern gun!
