I just got off the phone with Skip. He was in an accident. Spent a few days in the hospital. Totaled his ford pickup. He’s home now with a cracked rib and a vertebrae in his neck, bruises and sore as heck. They say he’ll heal up and be as feisty as ever. He crossed the center line and hit a car with five people. All are going to be okay. He’s more upset over them than anything. He got blinded by the sun reflecting off the snow. If you get a chance please say a prayer for all involved.
I hope he wasn’t wearing that green dress.

That’s the truth. I told him he’s been really lucky lately, unfortunately that good luck is preceded by bad luck.

I spoke to him again today. He sounded much better. He’s not quite so sore and is breathing easier.

Good to hear he’s doing better
Skip has had his fair share of bad luck in the past 9 months he was just getting so he could get out and do some walking he had scouted out his favorite place to catch bobcats but ran across a set of large black bear tracks he has a big old bore that dens close and seems to not go to sleep for the winter until later in the winter and this bear caused damage to people’s properties bird feeders grills and trying to get into where food is he is not afraid of people so things could get bad I think I may pull a bear tag this year and see if I can get him we have a point system here in Michigan and I know I have enough to pull a tag for that unit and see if I can call the big boy in
Skip was also getting excited about calling coyotes and was scouting for them the coyote population has really taken a hit around skip with Mange and distemper but seems to be rebounding slowly

That would be great if you could go after the bear. I bet Skip or someone close to him would bait for you. Never heard of calling them, though.

I'm the same way, Pokey. No desire to hunt bears over bait, but calling? I could be your camera man, because I'd probably not be the only one who'd want to see that. Seriously.

I have called in bears before, cheap thrill, they left after the got our smell. They make lots of noise when coming in, crashing through the alders.

It’s good to see you back on Skip. Good thoughts and more prayers for you my friend. Slow down a bit and heal up and then try not to do anything out of your price range.
Stop being stubborn And get a cell phone.
