when you retire you can hunt as much as you want, and that
is a good thing, but it can cut into your craps play, which it
seems can be good or bad.

Recently we spent 5 days deer hunting in Michigan. Got 4
bucks out of 5 tags, two trips to casino to play craps for
two of us netted almost $1800. That was a good trip.

Back home in Wisconsin spent 9 days at the hunting camp
and we had 7 nice bucks and only 1 trip to the table for a win
of about $340.

Total table time for all three trips was maybe 3.5-4 hours. We
had nice rolls and took our money.

If i thought retirement would be this much fun,i would have done it years

one thing about hunting, it means being used to getting up early. Good way to beat the crowds when it is time to play Craps.

I know a guy who paid for his ski trips in Tahoe with craps winnings.
