    I don't know, maybe this oppressive heat and humidity is starting to get to  me, but I was thinking about dragging the F-I-L up to the tundra this coming season and introing him to you boys over a phez hunt. Any talk of putting one together this coming season? Trying to make some plans ahead of time, so I can forecast the work schedule.

    Talk it up and let's pick a date. Be careful with the time of year now, us flatlanders and that dang white stuff ya'll call snow may not mix too well!!

    This would be awesome to have you back TB. Some suggested times might be: first part of December, middle of January or the first part of February. Feedback is appreciated.

    Either way, your temps will probably be less than 50 degrees right?!! I'm open to your suggestions. February works pretty good for me. That way we have the holidays behind us and air travel may not be quite as expensive also.

    I’d be open to hosting such a get together at Hillside Springs hunt club.  TB, you’d be welcome to stay in one of the room in the clubhouse for the entire duration of your trip if you’d like.  The accommodations aren’t as nice as a Hilton, but the pillows are soft and the bedding doesn’t have many bed bugs.  The downside is you may have to share the bathroom with Browndog if he decides to join us.

     

    Any of the times PnB mentioned would work.  I’d probably lean toward the second week of December if we want to reduce the risk of dealing with bad weather, although we’ve had 50 degree temps in both January and February.  One never knows what the weather will be here in Wisconsin.  The picture you see on the top banner of our web site was taken in the middle of a snowstorm that began December 18th, 2007 and ended February 22nd, 2008.

     

    Let’s try to pin down a date soon and I’ll talk to Gameburdhunts to see what kind of deal we can put together for bird prices.

    DP thanks for the offer and hospitality. Sounds like a plan. Let's firm it up and lock in a date. To drive or fly, that will be the question that I'm faced with, but let me worry about that small detail. However, snowchains for the tires may call for some requested advice....... Dang, I'm getting fired up already!

    Sorry I"ve been out of touch trying to get this moving.  I'm actually writing this from the hospital.  My son was admitted yesterday for a staph infection in his leg.  Long story, but suffice it to say that as of right now it looks like everything will be ok.  I'm actually taking a break while he takes a nap right now.  I'll try to get back in gear with everyone when I have a better routine.

    Good luck with your son, PnB.  I had that once and didn't realize how serious it was until the doctor told me I could have easily lost my leg or it could even have killed me if I hadn't come to see him that day.

    Thank you to all for the hopes and prayers on my son. We were in the hospital for 2 days and he was given IV antibiotics every 8 hours. The infected area was getting smaller and the swelling was way down by the time we left. However, when we got released we headed down to Chicago for a long weekend that we had planned for several months. On Sunday morning I noticed that his ankle was slightly swollen again and that by the time we got home his infected area was raised and starting to grow. Back to the emergency room we go thinking that they will probably admit him and put him back on the IV. Nope, they changed his meds and sent him home. If things aren't looking better by this afternoon I'm taking him to his doctor to see where we go from there.

    Thanks again to all who have sent emails, called and left messages here on the forum. It is very humbling to me to have friends (some of whom I've never met face to face) wishing the best for my son. I'll keep you posted as I know more.

    i heard those infections can get into the blood and spread throughought the entire body which can end up being really serious.

    Now that we know PnB's son is doing OK, let's get back to talking about the Forum Member's Phez Hunt.

    Tarheel, why don't you pick the date? More than likely, you'll be traveling the farthest. The rest of us can work around your schedule.

    What I talked to Jon about would be to release 4 birds per hunter at a cost of $50/hunter plus a dose of your favorite vittles to share with the group. If the economy makes a sudden turn around, maybe Jon and I can release a few extra birds. Walk along family members are also welcome.

    Sounds good. Somewhere in this thread, we discussed doing this in mid December. The weekend of the 12-13th works for me. Once we get a consensus on this date, I'll go ahead and book my airline tickets for me & the F-I-L.

    DP, I appreciate the offer of the bunkhouse too.  Let's get it going. I've got to order some dang electric socks from BassPro. My dang tootsies just cold thinking about that dang frozen tundra in mid December!

    Saturday the 12th looks good for me. Lets see if we can get a quick consensus on that date.

    Tarheel, you might want to see if you can round up an electric blanket too. We don't normally fire up the heat in the bunkhouse until it starts to get cold...usually in mid to late January.

    DP, that's why good ole #4 traded in his Cheesehead uniform and defected to Minn-e-sota! They got dang 70 degree temps inside their playhouse. You brandy sippin' cheeseheads have got dang anti-freeze flowing in your veins up thar. Ole Brett probably is good for 5 more seasons now that he's got the circulation flowing again in his feet!

    You thank the airline will let me drag my dang propane heater on the aircraft?
