I'm a long-time hunter and I just said we have an over-abundance of deer. We could have a six-month, three tag 'any deer' season here this year and you still couldn't drive at night for the damn things. They are thick as rats, at least until the 2nd day of deer season

Now as to 'whiners' (an over-used term in this thread of there ever was one)... I really hate to do this but,:

Quote:

Legitimate complaints about a bureaucratic FUBAR are not whining. And if somebody actually meets the definition above, don't waste your life trying to fix their pity party.

Peetz, you are not going to get a 'replacement suggestion' from me for APR other than to abandon it and go back to the old system. It was never needed here in the first place.
