Nice birds!
You look just like I thought.
Is that your Dad? Hope he is still doing well enough to hunt.
later,

Dang TJ those are some fine looking gobblers! I especially love the stack of Merriams you have there. Congratulations on a fine 2012 season and good luck on the upcoming 2013 season.

Now that is the best of news. You've got to love modern medicine miracles the Mayo can do, they saved mrs elk a couple of years ago even after some doctors said there was no hope.
Hope you guys have a rocking good celebration season this year.

yes charlie we ow the mayo clinic big big time!!! my father was in the same boat & your wife he had 2-3 major surgerys & the DRs in the twin cities pretty much said we tried but i just cant remove everything due to major arteries in the throat & wear the cancer was around the carotid artery & its terminal... we meet with a final DR & he said let me call my friend at the mayo we went down there & DR MOORER said thats what my job is to remove what others are to afraid to touch!!! needles to say he was confident that he could do the surgery!!! my father lost his voice box but gained many more years of life!!! it is just incredible what he did & how nobody else would touch my father but him!!! it was not a short road by any means get n my father back to his current strenth like 1.5 yrs of healing & hyperbarric chamber treatments but now hes good to go!!!

just a chest X-RAY feb 20 & hopefully just a quick chat with the docs???

any way the mayo will be my 1st stop if im ever in the same situation again!!! should of brang my mother there also but was to late...

we have had some big celebrations for my dad & he is living it up now & is hunting as much as he can for as long as he can!!!

thanks charlie & best wishes to you & mrs elk!!! oh & vic also...
