I have had to cancel my trip for caribou this year. I don't know who is more disappointed me or my father. When it came right down to it though it was not that hard a decision. I have decided to go back to school so I can get the hell out of my current job which I have spent the last 15 years at. I started there when I was 20 with the intention of going to school but some how time escaped my and I never did. I'm thinking it's time to quit screwing around and get off my ass and get smarter than I already am. So no pictures of me with my big caribou this year. Maybe in a few years though........

Sorry to hear it, fecl. I made the same choice a couple of years ago and am now a 32 year old senior. :rolleyes: :D It has SERIOUSLY cut into hunting time, but I'm hoping it leads to a net gain in the end. I believe it will. Good luck!

Fecl,

An education is always worth the time and effort, and even worth skipping a 'Bou hunt. There will still be Bou there in a few years, so don't worry too much.

And worse case, take out a Student Loan to go hunting in AK for a graduation present...

Good for you Fecl! If work is no fun, get out and get something better! I'm going to school too! 15yrs seniority where I work, but you never know. I'll be taking the fall semester off for Elk season though. I've never hunted Elk and I'm taking 3 weeks off from work to do it! I don't think I could deal with three weeks off from school. Too much work to make up and thats if you have understanding professors!

Good luck to ya bro!

Ya know moosie I might just take ya up on that someday. The only catch being that I will do the dishes.

This is what has caught my eye, it's a vocational school, but if this works out and I can find a steady job I might just work out going to college for a real degree designing these things,

One of the things I could do with these things is design a tracking device that is so small you couldn't even see it. Just think, I could implant one of these on elkgunner and find his secret spots and then post them all over the net. :D :D
