  2. Till this post I never thought much of having that knowlege in my head. It is just something you learn growing up.


  3. Yes; but we still don't know why you guys up North talk so danged funny. For instance instead of "crick" you say "creek', for 'pants" you say "paints' and you don't say "buddy" near enough!! :D
  4. To us up north ....."buddy" is something you won't call a friend.:D :eek:
  5. Only if your in Prison. :D
  6. A creek is something your door hinge makes. You can also have a crick in your neck. There are cricks, they are anything that isn't a river. I put my pants on every morning, my dog pants and I don't like to paint. When you call someone buddy you are just about to fight that person. A friend is someone who will pull that guy off of ya when you've had enough. Your friend in prison is bubba. lol Or is that your girlfriend in prison?

  7. All I know is noone is called Goodbuddy!! Glenn
  8. Hey Bill i resent that comment. lol

    so this is where half of the GFO crew is hanging out now. great site .

  9. Now that bubba is here the hunting section should take off well! Yes theres alot of us in here! I jump back and forth between the two, I knew we'd see you here soon enough! Glad to see you here! Glenn
  10. Ha Ha bubba, you say you resemble that. Well, if you go to prison you will be feared by all.

  11. I didn`t know this was here or i`d have been here along time ago. thanks to zfish for telling me. now i`m here and ready to play. woo hooo. lol

    when you two guys going to put up the ice poles for a day and goose hunt with me? with the ice so unsafe you should be out shooting jerky with me.

    good to be here,

  12. Well Id have to get a bigger shotgun! Two Im gonna wait til next year! those stamps arent cheap Id also have to find good recipies for them! If I dont like the taste Id be out real fast! Glenn
  13. Bubba I ain't been hunting in about 10 yrs. Some how after the Navy I never really go back into it. I've only hunted rabit and squirrel, well deer a couple of times. Any way I don't think I could hit a goose on the ground yet alone flying. I've been thinking about getting back into some sort of hunting but just haven't got around to it yet, besides fishing takes up all my spare time. Another thing, I ain't to interested in eatin what I kill so that is keeping me from it also.

    Thanks for the invite though, I know who to come to when I decide to hunt again.
