    Thanks IKEEPITCOLD, To make matters worse my brother was killed on Christmas day. Holidays were very difficult after that. My parents fell into deep depression every year from Thanksgiving well into the new year. Words cannot explain it. Years later my wife and I lost our 8 year old daughter to Leukemia. She would have been 20 years old this June. I wish I had the time back that I spent slurping Canadian Mist while staring out the window 4 hours at a time.
    Anyway, I realize this is a hunting forum and will not continue to dwell on my personal tragedies. I have put the past behind me, trading in the Devils brew for coffee, attending church sporadically, and helping out at the local soup kitchen on Christmas. I am excited to get back into hunting and enjoying the outdoors. We were unsuccessful in the 2014 Antelope draw, but I am trying to come up with an alternative hunt. If all else fails I am building an elevated 2 man hunting shack in Northern Michigan, with hope of watching my nephew enjoy his first hunt. Thanks again for the forum and to all those that have welcomed me. FORD#1

    FORD, welcome to the forum! I can empathize with your loss. My family lost my 16 year old sister in an auto accident just weeks before I was born. I've lost both parents in auto accidents, and have been through a tragic divorce. Knowing the Lord brings a lot of perspective to tragedies in life. Looking forward to getting to know you more through the forum.

    marcusvdk, Thanks for the welcome. You are right about Michigan. There are no excuses to be bored in this state. The majority of my 401 will be spent here. Hopefully I will be able to spend time in Montana, Wyoming, and Colorado chasing Antelope, Deer and Elk. Thanks for taking the time to make me feel welcome. FORD#1
