Our Wildlife Management Areas do have check in/out stations,  but there is no reason to have them elsewhere.  No tags here either.

I'm glad you got to make the trip Jeff. You probably needed a break.
At least we know a magic has at least 1 friend.  ;D

That looks like a really great time and allowed Jeff time from the cave to enjoy the things he loves with great friends. Good going MM and Pat. Wow 70 degrees in January. Though I must say we have had a few mild days this month, mixed in with the real cold ones. 

Back to reality Jeff. ;D  :snowball:

Den, yes, we had two 10 lb. bags of crawfish.  I have never heard of being able to buy just the tails.

I got a bunch to say and to add, but what the Magicman has not told you yet, that I was not in the best of sorts. I hope I'm not typhoid mary! I returned home about 11:15 last night after a 17 hour marathon drive. You can probably see in our feast photo that I'm pretty sick. Luckily it wasn't of the stomach variety so I was able to become an expert at downing mud bugs!  We just finished grinding Mr. Biggest Buck of my life into mostly burger, so it is back to bed for me. Turns out I have a fever too. Before I do that, I want to say in bit old letters

THANK YOU LYNN AND PAT (AND MARTY TOO)... FOR A TRIP I WILL NEVER FORGET AND WILL ALWAYS CHERISH!

Like I said, more to come. I may include how I had to beat up the Magicman to get his son Marty to officially join the forum! ;)

Many of you have met Marty through my writings about traveling/hunting as well as sawing.  Well, Marty challenged Jeff that if he could "pin me" that he would finally change his status from Guest/Lurker to Member.  OK, I got pinned and that is all that I am going to say about that.
 

 
Here is a screenshot and proof that Marty is now an official Forestry Forum Member.

This was a great pure hunt. No blind, no food plots, no bait. Just a pure plan playing the wind and the terrain where it came together to perfection. Well, in hind site. I thought I screwed up the shot the way that deer left the seen, but the shot was right on.

Can't complain there. Down right convenient. Great shot and not far to lug his carcass.  ;D

Magicman, I made this post earlier on another computer. I said I found tails-only here. http://www.lacrawfish.com/Crawfish-Tails-C32.aspx I mentioned that I couldn't figure out how they could season live crawfish until I figured out that they would send a pack of seasoning with live crawdads.  :D  Then I said that we would have to try some since we can put a hurtin' on a tray of shrimp. Then I mentioned how much I love bacon wrapped shrimp. Then, as far as I know, I ran to the house for dinner and forgot to push "post".  :D

I fully understand not being able to get crawfish in PA.  Here we are so close to South Louisiana that trucks make the trip daily to supply us with live crawfish, which by the way is how they are cooked.  Any dead crawfish are discarded before the basket is lowered into the boiling & seasoned water.  (Like Lobster)  The crawfish are boiled for a designated amount of time and then the cooker burner is turned off and the pot of crawfish is allowed to soak in the seasoned water for about a half hour.  The procedure would be radically different with only tails.

Here is one place that ships live crawfish:  http://www.lacrawfish.com/Default.aspx  Shipping is the deal breaker for me.

After reading and watching the videos on those links, I see that live crawfish are available almost anywhere.   :P

Both those links, tails-only and live crawfish, are the same company. They ain't cheap!
