Buggy drawing is here; turkey hunting, fishing, baseball is just around the corner

January 30, 2013

Spring is just around the corner, and the weather is giving us brief glimpses of what is in store. I am getting excited about doing some fishing and turkey hunting.
Chuck Restine sent me a picture of a good stringer of bass he caught at Broken Bow last weekend. It is about time to try and catch some bass.
Kaye Carter has informed me that Dan and I are going to catch her some crappie this spring, and you can bet that we are going to do our best to make her very happy.
