Yeah… these guys are into hunting like I'm into fishing – maybe even more so.

Obviously, it's bow season and my buddy has a cabin right on a ridge above the Blue and a bunch of acres – enough to keep some cattle and grow trees (up on the plateau) that he will sell at some point.

He also owns land down the ridges and into the valley although no stream frontage. He has ATV access trails throughout and tree stands in strategic places, trail cams etc, etc.

This place is a hunter's playground – even has an archery range through a section of woods.

One guy did get one on Saturday and was waiting for the others when I got there at dusk coz he couldn't find it right away. They went out and found it in short order and brought it in.

Luckily, I only had shorts and sandals so had to stay back and keep the rum company. Wink

Anyway… they aren't hunting this week coz of the temps but no way these fanatics are missing the opener.

If that 13 was an Envy, My FIL had the 6'9" ML snap off about 4-5" from the tip for no apparent reason... it was laying flat on the carpet under the gunwale in his boat (while trailered), in a rod sock, strapped into a rod saver. He managed to get a warranty return on it but I don't know if it was through the point of purchase or directly from 13.

Thanks.

I don't know which model it was but Envy sounds familiar. I'll look when I get home.

Gonna write to them though and see what they have to say.
