Tex-O-Bob, my first teaching position was at Hillcrest Jr. High in 1975. I taught the choirs and help Ron Hawn coach football. We took state with Steve Davies as the running back. *()* Could we have possibly been aquainted back then? I taught there three years before going back to school to work on a Masters. Back then, we could pheasant hunt the river bottoms which are all now homes, etc. I believe I killed a bird or two there.
By the way, I would have been known as Mr. Dunn or Coach Dunn.
But I do know what utfireman is talking about. Just driving to Benson, taking my boat, and waisting 4 hours on a fruitless hunt makes one question the expense. I won't even have a chance to go out again before the hunt is over! I have a meeting in SLC next Sat., and most of my evenings are tied up with meetings or playing guitar for Mt. Crest's musical or making candy. I'm really bummed. Gues I'll have to take the dog(s) to a pheasant club to get them on to some birds. I hope the price of them hasn't gone up, but it will have to sooner or later. I'm even debating going down to Parker Mt. to fill my doe pronghorn tag! I probably will, but that makes for some pretty expensive steaks! At least I won't have to travel too far for my cow elk, as it's on the Ogden-South Cache unit.
