    Bandit and I were having cocktails in my garage a few years back and decided that we were going to do the slam. We drove to ocala Florida and both killed on the first morning 2 minutes apart. Bandits was a absolute giant and made the top 20 for the state with ease. The next year we drove to Oklahoma and hunted a jake farm. Literally 25 Jake's on this place. It was tough but I scratched out a nice bird. The next year we went back to get the other bird we needed and both shot nice birds. Skipped 2 years due to schedules and lack of birds. Well I am happy to say we just shot 6 in Nebraska and were headed to Denver to fly home. 2 doubles, a 4 beard big boy who will be on my wall, a double beard, and some nice spurs. What an absolute great experience. Orange groves, swamp oaks, red clay canyons, sand hills, and wind mills. Ready to hit the repeat button for my son.
