Congratulations... I didn't make it nearly that long, but it was interesting while it lasted.

Nice action there yoteguts!!

Swamp Wolf- After some decompression for while, do you have another, lower-paced gig you're going to do for a while? More adc work than you've done in the past ...?

Plan on just loafing for a while...the wife and I. Do a few home and hunting lease projects that need doing. Come fall a couple of older buck deer should move only at night, because during those cool mornings I will be in a tree along their rub-lines somewhere. In early November, I hope to tag another large midwestern whitetail with my bow...this time with no schedule to keep back at home.

January and February will be predator trapping jobs. Have 4 lined up already across the state....that's 8 weeks worth. Then, any beaver work in March.

Then, in April and May I'd like to add an Osceola, a Merriam, and/or a Rio gobbler to my hunting album.

My sons and I are working on the building they own here in town for a small B&T/outdoor supply store. With high lumber prices and me NOT wanting to be tied down to that just yet....that is moving slowly, but steady. We're already doing structural work that the building needs.

My law enforcement days are OVER. Ive already had a couple good offers....one from my local Sheriff and one from county commission to be code enforcement officer. Good $$...but Ive had enough badge wearing and gun toting, and getting in the middle of people's problems.

Actually, I have thought about doing just that.

I have every work day report from day 1 with a narrative about what I done that day.

Have pics to go along with most of the interesting stuff.

Congratulations!!! Thanks for your service!

Takes a while to stop thinking about tomorrow. Coffee helps!

Your wife will start saying “let it go” a lot!

Congradulations Swamp, and although we have never had any interaction, that don't mean I haven't kept track of you on here! lol. I 've got three good friends that are GW's in Ks, so it isn't like I've tried to avoid you! Wish you well in you future endeavors and maybe our paths will cross one of these days. Best of luck in your new "job"!

Good for you and your family! There is life after you take off the badge. It took me a couple years before I could go past a parked rig at a bridge or in a field entrance without slowing down and wondering Who, What, When, Where and Why. That'll pass with time. A great deal of stress will also be lifted. At least it did for me. Good luck!

Swamp, Our local Warden retired a couple years ago. He sat down and wrote a book about some of his most interesting cases over the years. I still need to get a copy. But scuttlebutt on the streets is there's quite a few lawbreakers that aren't happy. Although they aren't named, I guess it's pretty easy to figure out who they are. Especially the one about the town cop riding around shooting deer from his patrol vehicle while on duty.
