Spooner Advocate- Springbrook Column- November 13, 2014

Good day friends-  Snow! All I can say is do we have to get it all in one big dump! LOL Please be careful out there! Drive safe, put your winter kits in the car and a blanket and shovel. If you do not need to go out please don't! 

Happy Veterans Day to all the Vets and their families! Thank you so much for what you have done for this country as well as for my family. Freedom does not come free and I would just like to personally say thank you for all that you have done or are about to do. My dad served this country and I never was really able to spend a Veterans Day with him. So I would like to say a big thank you to some of my military friends Mark Mc Connell, Doug Houn, Juanita Thompson, Cris Marlow- I appreciate all that you and your family have gone through with being in the military.

I want to wish all the hunters out there good luck! Please be careful and really pay attention to your surroundings and who and what is around you. I already hard of someone that fell out of their stand because of faulty equipment and someone who shot a bow hunter cuz he thought he was a squirrel. Check your equipment before you need to use it and replace it if faulty. Know who is around you and know what you are shooting before you shoot.  Have a successful hunting season! Fill those freezers up!

Strange request but if there are any hunters or trappers out there that do not want their hides, bear fat, feathers, tallow etc please let them know I would be interested. I use various things in soaps, lotions and beaded items. Also anyone have any porcupine quills. I appreciate any help!
