Team Keslar was off to the great state of Wyoming to see our good freinds the Mankins.
Bill & Cindy were very hospitable while we stayed at the old bunkhouse on the ranch.
The place takes me back way before my time. I have known Bill Mankin for 20 years now,
and he has become a good friend. He lets us on his ranch to take mature muledeer & antelope.
Myself, Bruce Matthews, and of course the Mangler(Dennis Marcelli) enjoyed the bountiful amounts of game on the ranch. We had a very successful hunt, we all took big muledeer, and antelope. If you got a copy of the news letter you can see some of the animals we took.
We saw the new lakes that bill had the gas drillers put in for him while they drilled for gas on the ranch, I gave him some knowledge on how to manage the fish that he has put in the lakes. His lakes are many acres, and he has put alot of rainbow trout in them. I told him to get some minnows by the pound, and stock them every year for the next 5 years as to get the fish grown to good eating size, and to level off the population. His lakes are deep and cold just perfect for trout. The ph is fine since the lakes are in the middle of the big limestone beds, and the lakes are cold water spring fed. I think It will be soon time, to go to the lakes and fish. Wow, will that be great to hook a few of those babies. They will be good eating. Remember one thing fish are what they eat. As all animals, keep that in mind when sitting down to eat wild game or fish.
That you again Bill.
