This is a Fire Rainbow - The rarest of all naturally occurring
atmospheric phenomena. The picture was taken on the Idaho
/ Washington border. The event lasted about 1 hr. The clouds
have to be Cirrus, at least 20,000 feet in the air, with just the
right amount of ice crystals ant the sunlight has to hit the
clouds at precisely 58 degrees.

Ben's comment: The RUT with the cold weather came
early this year. Then as the weather warmed up, things
kind of cooled rown. There was no 3rd place in the Doe
division for Young Adults. If your name started with a J
or a T you were more likely to kill a deer in 2008.
20 out of 45 - WHAT'S THAT?
In the contest there are 18
winners plus 8 blind drawing winners for a total of 26 people
winning $$ BUCKS FOR BUCKS & DOES $$.
This was the year
of multiple deer for our customers, Two people took 4 deer
and 3 deer and three people took 2 deer. A Young Adult and a
Adult all time Record were broken. One deer was brought in
for every 5.2 bowhunters. Quite a few customers harvested
deer and didn't bring them, but that happens every year. Every
year our society allows us less and less free time. It's like
people are becoming so busy, they don't have time to enjoy
the things they like to do. Still with all the hustle and bustle ---

LIFE  IS  SUPER  GOOD !

WHERE DID THE DEER GO?


Driving on the autobahn in Germany at 140mph in
his BMW Z4, the Driver Hit a Deer...
and
The deer
disappeared... The driver stopped and wondered
where did the deer go.......??? Scroll down to see
what he found...............................................!!!



For all you deer hunters, this is how you pack a 150lb
deer into a BMW Z4 convertible...








So Who's for Dinner...???

It is not a NEW WORLD now, but it is a world where BAIL OUTS should

There is no freedom without capitalism and there is no

capitalism without freedom. I'm concerned about Small

concerned about my three grandchildren. And most of
all, I'm concerned about are country's future.

*********************************
Our country was built with a work ethic, with the dream of its people
who had faith in GOD, faith in our families, faith in confidence, common
sense, hard work and knowing it will be better. Everything you have you
deserve is yours because of the people who developed it not the
government. Politics has become a thing that no one wants to know about
to the point where the stupid vote is now controlling our country. Winston
Churchill said, "The truth is incontrovertible, malice may attack it, ignorance
may deride it, but in the end, there it is". Help kill the apathy in this country,
get involved in your oun way, be proud, and we can stand alone, the best
country in the world bar none and the result will protect your childrens and
grandchildrens future. We the people need to care again, need to lead again,
need to get it done. LIFE  IS  GOOD ! We need to treat everything in this
country the way Japan controls it's rice market. That's my solution.
GOD BLESS AMERICA

Dedicated to education, safety training and support of Illinois firearm owners
October 10, 2008

Fellow Sportsman,

        Hello, my name is Rich Pearson and I have been active in the firearm rights movement for over 40 years. For the past 15 years, I have served in the Illinois state capitol as the chief lobbyist for the Illinois State Rifle Association.
        I lobbied Barack Obama extensively while he was an Illinois State Senator. As a result of that experience, I know Obamaís attitudes toward guns and gun owners better than anyone. The truth be told, in all my years in the Capitol I have never met a legislator who harbors more contempt for the law-abiding firearm owner than Barack Obama.
        Although Obama claims to be an advocate for the 2nd Amendment, his voting record in the Illinois Senate paints a very different picture. While a state senator, Obama voted for a bill that would ban nearly every hunting rifle, shotgun and target rifle owned by Illinois citizens. That same bill would authorize the state police to raid homes of gun owners and forcibly confiscate banned guns. Obama supported a bill that would shut down law-abiding firearm manufacturers including Springfield Armory, Armalite, Rock River Arms and Les Baer. Obama also voted for a bill that would prohibit law-abiding citizens from purchasing more than one gun per month.
        Without a doubt, Barack Obama has proven himself to be an enemy of the law abiding firearm owner. At the same time, Obama has proven himself to be a friend to the hardened criminal. While a state senator, Obama voted 4 times against legislation that would allow a homeowner to use a firearm in defense of home and family.
        Does Barack Obama still sound to you like a "friend" of the law-abiding gun owner?
        And speaking of friends, you can always tell a person by the company they keep. Obama counts among his friends the Rev. Michael Pfleger - a renegade Chicago priest who has openly called for the murder of gun shop owners and pro-gun legislators. Then there is his buddy Richard Daley, the mayor of Chicago who has declared that if it were up to him, nobody would be allowed to own a gun. And letís not forget Obamaís pal George Soros - the guy who has pumped millions of dollars into the UNís international effort to disarm law-abiding citizens.
        Obama has shown that he is more than willing to use other peopleís money to fund his campaign to take your guns away from you. While a board member of the leftist Joyce Foundation, Barack Obama wrote checks for tens of millions of dollars to extremist gun control organizations such as the Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence and the Violence Policy Center.
        Does Barack Obama still sound to you like a "friend" of the law-abiding gun owner?

Open Letter to Sportsmen:10/10/08:page 2

        By now, Iím sure that many of you have received mailings from an organization called "American Hunters and Shooters Association(AHSA)" talking about what a swell fellow Obama is and how he honors the 2nd Amendment and how you will never have to worry about Obama coming to take your guns. Let me make it perfectly clear - everything the AHSA says about Obama is pure hogwash. The AHSA is headed by a group of left-wing elitists who subscribe to the British view of hunting and shooting. That is, a state of affairs where hunting and shooting are reserved for the wealthy upper-crust who can afford guided hunts on exclusive private reserves. The AHSA is not your friend, never will be.
        In closing, Iíd like to remind you that Iím a guy who has actually gone nose to nose with Obama on gun rights issues. The Obama I know cannot even begin to identify with this nationís outdoor traditions. The Obama I know sees you, the law abiding gun owner, as nothing but a low-class lummox who is easily swayed by the flash of a smile and a ration of rosy rhetoric. The Obama I know is a stony-faced liar who has honed his skill at getting what he wants - so long as people are willing to give it to him.
        Thatís the Barack Obama I know.                                                      Sincerely,
                                                                                                                  (original signed)                                                                                                                Richard A. Pearson
                                                                                     Executive Director - Illinois State Rifle Association
