    @Adam lol I'm saving that for when I'm older and not so full of piss and vinegar. Something about these musky make you backwards and reclusive kinda like Gollum 🀣

    @Adam also I'm plotting on a bear right now, think I may hit the national forest later this week to see if I can blunder into one.

    @Appalachian bear is on my short list next year Lord willing if I've got the time and everything works right I will probably take a few days and camp out a Catoosa and hopefully get a bear deer combo

    @Adam I'm kicking myself for not going on that this year. I misread the regs and thought we weren't allowed to kill bears on catoosa but then lower down its says the date of the archery hunt. I just quit reading when it said none in catoosa but now I realize they put that so people don't shoot them on the other deer hunts. I've got decent Intel on them already from some bordering private land owners as well as seeing them while building trail and seeing scat while smallie fishing. Next year I plan to really key in on them in September, might even break down and get some cell cams for it.
