I just joined today, although I've lurked around these forums for a while. Seems like you guys have a lot of fun here. I'm from Albuq., NM. I'm a part-time taxidermist, and love to hunt big game (although some will say the game I kill is never that "big"). I have an engineering gig in between that gets in the way of all the fun stuff. Just thought I'd introduce myself.

Moosie,

Looks like we do the same thing for a living. I do mostly roadway and drainage. I manage to avoid working with the bridge nerds most of the time.

Welcome aboard Dan.

Hey Moosie, looks like you and Dan have more in common than just careers...

love to hunt big game (although some will say the game I kill is never that "big")

Thanks guys.

Moosie, we're running version "J" of Microstation, and the accuracy and graphics are horrible. I here the newer versions are much better, but until NMDOT goes to it, we have to stay on the old version. In-roads is a good program, though. I like it just as much as Land Desktop.

Pygmy, I'll be going on what I hope is the first of many Alaska trips. What did you hunt in NM?

Elk, elk and elk.....

Actually the first two were bowhunts, one near Ocate and the other in the Gila..I killed a cow in the Gila...Only elk I ever killed..

The last hunt was near Chama...I did not have a tag myself, but was assisiting the guide... I was camp cook, butchered animals, etc. etc...


Hehehe..I don't think ANYONE can do just one Alaska hunt... I went in '89 figuring it would be my ONE trip of a lifetime...HAH..!!..

On the way home on the plane I was already planning my NEXT hunt.... :D ....

THANX, I'm taking notes ;)

I actually think a Comeback I heard a buddy tell me was the Best. He was a Biker dude and His buddy wass too. They went to the Green "T" in Pocatello (Cowboy Redneck Central). the Friend Biker dude was Big and HAd a Poney Tail. they actually put on some Jeans and a Cowboy hat and Went in.. Some Rednecks realised they didn't fit in and went over to mess with them. One Redneck Tugged the Dudes hait and Said.. "Jsut what the FUGG do you think YOU are ?!?!"

He calmly stood back and in a Loud voice said "WELL, I'm wearing BOOTS.... I'm wearing Wranglers... And I have on a Cowboy hat.... LOOKS like I'm an A$$hole !!!!!" Wellthe fight broke out and All was good ;)

Anyways, HAs nothing to do with Welcoming a Inferior Acad User but somethnig to read non the same
