tarpons, Report from Argentina, Stop, Drop and Roll

Another good report from the Tom Cat and the Big Dipper on the tarpon fishing.  Hate that I'm missing it, but will be working to get mine when I get back.

Finishing up with our first group of hunters here in Argentina, over 4 days, we've shot over 1000 ducks......all within the legal limits and the ducks are going to good use by the locals.  This has been the best year ever, despite the dry conditions in most areas and other outfitters who are struggling.  The team that we have put together down here really does it right.  Hope to have some pics up if I can keep this internet signal......

Another group has just arrived and I will be hunting with them over the next four days.

Weather is great, no ice or snow, temps are in the high 30's/low 40's at night, up to about 60 during the day. Only mishap was that at breakfast this morning I was warming up my back against a propane heater and caught my shirt on fire.....I mean really on fire.  Had flash backs to elementary school safety videos of Stop, Drop and Roll.  Luckily I didn't get burned by the melting material, but I ruined a good hunting shirt.
